it's faster, BUT...

...I can only visit this forum from recent posts (Technical Problems - Forums, Features, Etc.) if there's been a new post. I can't click on the topic (it times out) only where it says '1 new' for example. In that case it hops over just fine. Anybody else experiencing this?
The only other qualm I have is that you cannot filter 'out' forums. I used to filter out the Vineyard posts when checking 'Recent posts'. Am I just missing it?
Other than that, lookin' ok. Again, I like the 'edit' option on posts as I'm a stickler for saying what I want to say - and I can add something to my original post instead of saying 'oh yeah, and I forgot about this...' later on, etc.
P.S. The 'Shows & Lyrics' section isn't allowing a 'search by year', it toggles to 'search by date' when I try to.

as of this morning

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.

Conspiracy theory

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.

LOL

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!!

please fix the website!

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?
