The site is much faster this morning and yeah: the new forum features work well too.
it seems to be working really well and I am particularly loving the fact that for the first time in history you can actually go directly to new posts. I am about to go send a PM of tearful joy to the techs, but I'll look around for anomalies while I'm at it.
So are you thinking that the "coincidental timing" of the FB and Dead.net changes are designed to cull the older, more change-averse crowd from the scene?
Seems like the techs are still tinkering here. As prone as I am to mistake-making, I'm enjoying the edit function as a face-saving safety net (just add spellcheck and I'll be ready to roll). Still not quite sure why the reply button doesn't link the reply to the original post, but maybe that's coming as well.
OK I see what I did-hit preview and not "save". Previous post was apologizing for my outburst-because after closer examination new changes are not soo bad. Saw them on the same morning that FB went berserk with nasty changes, so mood was foul! I am sorry!!
but had posted here and now don't see it. Will try again
What the heck?! I want my old Dead.net back.
p.s. Johnman, I guess the edit option is nice.
But, the filter is gone from the recent posts page. Also, pages often aren't loading for me. Maybe it's my connection? I 'spose I'll just hafta be patient. What other choice is there?
can ya tell if there are new posts?...guess I like the editing option, though...just used it to add THIS
I think a few things are still in progress here.
Pages are much slower to load since this latest update was rolled out and the useful forum feature where posts are noted as "new" seems to have disappeared. Also, for changes of this magnitude, it would have been nice to have a note about the update on the front page.
What's with the new layout? Do NOT like it!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
