The moral of the story?

Fuck IE.

I agree with the above statement.... also mike when I try loading it on safari on iPhone it's very very weird! I'll take a screencap and show later on.

Have we lost the feature that allowed us to jump back to the top of the thread? As there was a button I think titled top that helped jump around abit more

I noticed that when looking at the active topics, it just shows the last 24 hours, when I remember there used to be an option for the last week or 30 days. Is that gone forever, or am I missing something?

Go to the "My Profile" link, then hit "Edit my profile," then hit "Change Photo." That'll get you squared away.

BTW, Mike, the "View New Content" link works for shit. It just shows you any new threads you hadn't previously clicked on. Once you've read a thread and / or replied, it never reappears in the list, even if new replies have been posted since your last visit. Really obnoxious.

Due to limited server space, that feature is disabled for non-mods.

Yeah, I've noticed that too. I'll look into it.

See, I would've thought you could have done it, hosting off site, like with avatars? But nevermind, is it too late to ask to be moderator.

But yeah, except for the new content thing, the site seems to run a lot smoother and the editing of posts is quicker.

Very soon I'll have to upgrade to the next package. When that happens, I'll open up the personal photo option to all members.

You can still private message. Click your name in the upper right corner to access your control panel, forum settings, and PMs.

An update to the upgrade is coming. It will fix:

- View new content changes so its more like version 2.3.6 where it's based off last visit. Option to use the 3.0 style in user settings.

- Option to view search results in a view similar to a forum.

- More filter and sort options with search

- Optimized search and view new content to improve performance

- Old media tag and quote tag issues impacting display of older posts fixed.

- Watched content hook in sidebar resource usage addressed.

I've sent in a request, though I'm not sure when it will be addressed. So if the forums are down for a little while, this is why.

Found an interesting new feature called "public poll." This allows people to see what you chose in a poll, presumably, even if you don't post in the thread.

OK coupla questions

#1 is the private messaging broken on the new forum version?

#2 why is it on the iPhone version of safari that the forums show up as a mobile type website? I have to scroll down and press the link where it says switch to normal web browsing view.

01. Nope. In fact, it's improved, in that it works like a private thread, so you can see the entire conversation in one place. Why do you ask?

02. My guess is because you're accessing it on a mobile device, so the default is to use the mobile version.

01. I ask because I sent you a mesage and never got a reply, (which we've already discussed what I sent)

02. the iPhone and safari on it has always been advertised as showing the real web address of any site not the mobile crap that all other cell phones use. Honestly it's not a big deal I was just asking.

Considering I'm in the defenestration business, this isn't going to work out.
Well... I'm willing to compromise. Put a bunch of cat's at the bottom of your building and you have a new P.A..
