Technical Issues After August 13, 2012 Maintenance

  • Hello.....  Where the heck are we, and what the ..... did they do to the forum?  No way to Quote.  No way to change the font, boldface, italic, etc.  No way to preview.  Ah.....  found it!  Use Rich Formating at the bottom......  Didn't THAT used to be the default?  Why change it?  And why is the "EMAIL ME REPLIES TO THIS POST"  (yelling at me I guess) checked by default?  so I will have to manually uncheck it before I post to keep them from cluttering up my email inbox.  Frankly i already get way too much SPAM!  I don't need to instantly know every time somebody around here hiccups (thinking from the other end....).

    At least photos work the way they used to.........

    Looks to be another downgrade on Kalmbachs part!  Probably attempting to make the forum work better on "stupid" phones!!! 

    Are their settings somewhere so the user can make it work better???

  • Good lord !

    What happened?

    Where am I?

    I agree with richg1998.  This new format is terrible.  What the heck was wrong with the old format?

    Like, Dislike or undecided?

    As to this question, I am undecided. 

    I did notice on multiple page threads there is no page choice.  The thread needs to be opened then which page chosen.

    Click on Rich Formating at the bottom of the post and most all the old stuff is there.......  Quote is right above the response box and below the post you replied to.  This abomination has to be to be more friendly to people who no longer use computers but have their heads in  the "cloud" somewhere........

    Use Rich Formatting seems to be the answer to everything.

    What the heck does Use Rich Formatting mean anyhow?

  • Hey, they did away with the number of posts/replies.

    Good, now I have one less thing to be concerned about.  LOL

  • I think it means, we got you again. Techies must be laughing over this.

    The Rich Text option was not obvious to me. I could not even reply to my own post.

    If you ever fall over in public, pick yourself up and say “sorry it’s been a while since I inhabited a body.” And just walk away.

  • My first impression was that the page template is so ............. 1999. It formats the columns very narrowly to a fixed width and doesn't take advantage of a modern 1280 pixels wide LCD. It would look great on my old CRT monitor though.

    Still dog slow in the middle of the day. Oh well, I guess that beggars can't be choosers.

    A little too much white space. Note the top and bottom margins of your post over the signature.

    Oh wait, this probably is to accomodate the iSheeple who Must Consume All Content on their mobile devices.

    Baaaaa.  Baaaaa.

  • OK what happened to everyones post counts, join date, and locations?

    I may have spoken too soon. Now the new format sucks. LOL
