So. I like not being taken to a new page to post a reply.

I've noticed with animated gif avatars there is a ton of shadow... sometimes when I click the latest post in a thread thing, it just goes to the start. Also, I hate how if I click that, close a tab, and haven't finished reading all the new posts it doesn't matter, I just go right to the end of the thread.

One of the greatest things of the workings of this forum was the way it remember(s/ed) what the last post was you'd read. Even between different computers....

 

 

Does above sound kainotophobic?

Underneath the "Search Results for "Spoo"" there is a option to order by relevance or recency.

 

Is there no way to access the complete member list? Been digging and can't seem to find it anywhere

 

What happens if I change the notification for a post in a subscribed thread? Does the space-time continuum explode?

/thread

Seriously though... am I missing something again? Can I only (in theory) get taken to my last post in a thread (which isn't happening) and not the last read post in a thread that I haven't posted in? There are a ton of threads I read but haven't posted in. If that's the case that's complete bullshit, frankly.

Not that this matters but making it too hard to keep up with what I've posted will just cause me to stop coming here.

OK this new site is really pissing me the fuck off.

Is there a way to NOT get a fuck ton of HTML whenever I quote someone's post? I clicked plain text and it qouted something else entirely.

User's previous viewing history seems not to have been part of the transition. So the new system remembers the last post you've read in this system, but not the previous one. The link to the left of thread titles does what you want.

Couple of things that would be nice to have adressed:

Getting a bunch of HTML when quoting.
Not being able to use 'Crtl+i', 'Crtl+b', etc when posting.
Not getting e-mail notifications from subscribed threads.
Not going to first unread when trying to.
The ads on the right hand side take up way too much real estate, epecially when not on a wide screen display.
Some smileyes in older post have been replaced with obnoxious smiley giffs.
Would be nice if the sigs could be moved down to the bottom of the post.

Top left of the editor, there's an option for "Source" which allows for HTML editing. Unclick that and you go back to the standard Rich Text/BB Code editor

Can we please get the full rss feed going again please?

Whoa. It's .... different. It is going to take a while to get used to this new look. Thanks for the work you put into this guys.

I don't empty boxes where the forum sponsor logos are supposed to be in the sidebar. They showed up previously. I have a hosts file blocking ads on all the computers I use -- I am guessing that the ads are hosted by a company that is in my list. I'm also not sure if I like the page layout as it appears on chrome/chromium. The old forum had some very nifty features and I hope not all is gone in the transition.

Lovin' the new site, guys. Thanks for all your hard work.

I like the ability to view 100 posts per page.

One small recommendation/request: Can you guys un-migrate Edina? I figure if you do that, you can brag that the new system has 75% less bitching and moaning.

This. As Kyle noted, just mark everything read. Once you do that, you'll get the new posts going forward.

'fraid not. It does, but only the first time. After reading a couple of posts and closing the thread it counts the whole thread as 'read'.

 

By the way Ed, The whole anger thing is uncalled for. For that I give you 9 edinas, which means you are another month over quota.

It is... weird.
I have to say one good thing about SF's outage yesterday: it had never loaded this fast for me wink.gif

Seriously, though, it looks pretty slick.

Questions
Is it ok to port old FS items to the new system?
Will you add more ways to sort/classify FS items?

THat's just it.... I've clicked that link. But like, it won't take me to the last post I read in the new site. And then when I close a tab before finishing reading all the new stuff, then I just get taken to the end. And most of the time it hasn't worked and then I just go to the end.

So I thought I had lost my password and clicked the "I forgot my password" thingy 3 times, haven't received an e-mail. Contacted you via the feedback thingy.

I remembered my password again - yay! shog[1].gif

But I still think the "I forgot my password" thing is broken, so that.

Am I blind or does the 'go to first unread post' button not exist any more in 'home' or 'subscription' view.
That's the primary way I used to read the forum: go to mycp -> click on unread items there.
