    Thanks for all the work that has gone into the new site! I just wanted to put down a couple of suggestions. I apologize if these have been addressed elsewhere.


    I miss spying on people! I can view everyone that is online, but I can't see what they are looking at. When bored previously I was able to see what others were viewing, and it was a great way to find new topics I had missed. I also liked seeing who was lurking in the sale threads.


    It would be nice to have the latest activity feed; now I can only see new threads. On the main page I can see the latest post in each subforum, but it is not the same.


    Are we going to bring back red/green reputation? Edit: I read that the like system is the new norm. All good.


    Did the balibro section disappear? Edit: I see the link for it in another thread on the topic, but I am told that I am not authorized. Maybe everyone that paid for balibro stuff has to be re-added to the list?


    I know that many of these things are probably in the works, thanks again.

    Well, sometimes all it takes s time. I at least figured out how to see the latest posts. Go to "View All" under "latest topics" at the right of the home screen. By default you see the latest started threads. Change "sort by" to "replies". Voila. Now I have some idea what everyone is up to.


    Edit: now that isn't working? It worked fine with all replies in order, now it is doing something different... :ross:

    Wow, this just got weird. I was wrong about clicking "latest topics". When I chose that, sorting by "replies" or by "date-last update" doesn't give me what I want. But here is what does...


    I have to be logged out. When logged out and at the main page there are two options at the very top left. "Today's posts" and "members list". If I am logged in I only see "members list". So, logged out again, at the main screen, click "today's posts" in the top left next to "members list". Then it says you are not authorized, so log in! Then I get the list I want. It is a list of all the latest activity. The name of the thread is there and the name of the person that posted last. I think this is what I found the first time, but after I was logged in I couldn't get back to this exact format. I'm sure there is an easier way, I will try to find it. Can someone else try this? I might just be crazy.

    Anyone still having issues with editing posts with safari mobile? Everytime I edit it does real weird isht(won't let you scroll down too far in the post being edited, weird small squares appear above/below uploaded images like a bad picture link, backspace to correct typing and it zooms to midway down the post which is the bottom-most point it will let you scroll down to). I miss the desktop version on mobile. Otherwise its not so bad.

    Replying on Safari mobile RIGHT NOW. Here's what I see that some may not like.


    The text box is bigger than my screen by default, so either I type past the edge of the screen or I have to "pinch and zoom" to resize the page so I can see the whole box.


    edit: after tapping "post reply" the button grays out for about ten seconds. There's no other visual cue that something's happening. I can see someone assuming nothing is happening. After about 25 seconds the page refreshes with my new post.


    edit 2: saving an edit is way faster than making the first post.

    The old school "web 1.0" way of foruming where replying loads a/the whole page again was less efficient, but it gave people the satisfaction that something was happening.


    In this new world where the updates are dynamic - the whole page doesn't reload (in fact the concept of "page" is dead) - it would probably help people a lot if there was a spinny wheel or something to indicate "yo, I'm working on it!"

    This is some ugly-ass shit. Is there some way to make it look normal again? I've looked, but am not finding it. This new appearance, to me, looks a like five-year old shit on the cat...

    The current file size for an *Attached Pic* is 100 kb.


    This doesn't allow for any attachments of quality or size beyond a virtual thumbnail.


    Any way to up the size to ~400 kb at least?


    Wouldn't be such an issue if the Gallery was available. But as is, now requires having another site (hosting)


    open simultaneously to post any good pics...

    Hmmm. I had a signature after the update for a bit, now it is gone. I cant find how to add one under settings. Halp


    Edit: looks like all the sigs are gone. It is probably posted somewhere, but when I search for signature I don't see any new topics.

    Go into your settings and you'll probably find visibility of sigs is turned OFF. Turn it back on and you're good to go.
