1. And... we're back. You'll notice that all of your images are back as well, as are our beloved emoticons, including the infamous :foo: We have also worked with our server folks and developers to fix the issues that were slowing down the site.

    There is still work to be done - the images in existing sigs are not yet linked, for example, and we are working on a way to get the images to load faster - which will improve the performance of the site, especially on the pages with a ton of images, and we will continue to work diligently on that and keep you updated.

    Cheers,

    This has been an issue for me for a while:

    When browsing the mobile version of the site, clicking on an image doesn't take me to the image - it takes me to the first image in that thread's image gallery.

    What are these notifications I keep getting that someone has quoted me in a post?

    I think it is a great idea (and I may have actually asked for it during the early input phase on the new SF), but I think emails are too strong....I don't want a separate email everytime someone quotes me, can it wait until I next come back to SF? Or maybe a daily digest that gets sent in the middle of the night listing any thread that quoted me but I haven't read yet?

    I really like the way that Slickdeals does it. You get a little AJAX popup in the corner of your screen (less intrusive than the SF "YOU HAVE PM" popup) that tells you that you have been quoted. You can have more than one of these if you are quoted in multiple places. This is great because it pulls you back into threads that you might not have returned to. If you skip one, there is an activity tab somewhere on the site where you can see all recent quotings/alerts/etc.

    The problem with the emails is that I am just going to ignore them. I check into SF frequently, so if I am not browsing it, there is probably a reason. By the time I do come back to SF, I'm going to forget that I had an email.

    Would just be much more convenient/less annoying if it happened inside SF instead of via email.

    Yeah, I wasn't expecting an e-mail notification of being quoted. Do not want.

    its always been an option, though i have never used it. i would imagine the default got changed in the recent updates. just go to your profile preferences and change it back. easy as pie.

    I'd still like to see some sort of in-forum notification...especially if you get quoted into a new thread (so you can see when people be talking shit about you).

    Emails are a pain though...5 of my last 10 emails have been notifications from SF...

    Haha. Blame that on Parker. It's actually a single banner - Parker just likes white space...
    You can opt to turn off the different notifications settings in your account.

    I changed my prefs; not a problem. For future feature enhancements, perhaps it would be better to notify us of the new feature rather than turn them on by default. I spend all flippin' day on SF as it is...

    Interesting. What is this "Notify me when people mention me" option?

    I've never seen such a notification (maybe my username is too short? it would trigger on all sorts of junk) but it seems like an interesting concept.

    It's for when someone tags you, @otc.


    Did you get one for this? I started getting them last night.

    Oh, I've never seen that before.

    Another one where I like it but wish I could have the notifications show up on some panel in SF instead of via email (didn't see an option for that...only the option to turn them on/off). PMs already do this. so maybe they are working on something for these other categories.

    It's relatively new. I can't recall when I first noticed it, but it hasn't been long. It's a great idea, though.

    Agreed. Some sort of notification when I log in would be awesome, and superior to emails.


    Maybe SF doesn't want you to know what we're saying about you...
