HELLO FORKERS May 2016 Edition

I get an error message if I try to click on followed threads. Nora tells me I have  glitch.

I have installed adblocker plus to get rid of adverts , I could live with the ones on the old site but I am totally p****d off with the B&Q shed in the middle of postings.

Last night we had a shocking experience. Sex on the patio.

Mr and Mrs Mallard have been around a few weeks now, and come to the back door to be fed.

Last night they were on the front. He jumped up and tapped on the window, then the pair went back onto the road, waddled up to next doors, around their back and finally managed to work through the shrubbery onto my back. They had some seed, then  he jumped on top of her, looking very pleased with himself. In broad daylight, ten feet away from us.

Disappointed in GW response

Well they will gain the  mobile users, but at the expense of all the old codgers.

If there are no old codgers left  to answer questions, what have they got left?

I wouldn't know where to start. The last breakaway group have a forum, but I can't say I'm keen.

This is the only forum I have ever belonged to, and now it's broken.

I can't keep using a site that is hurting me physically.

I spend 10 minutes on here and I get a headache.

Sorry, but I can't cope with this.

Too slow to find anything. I cant view pictures larger. I still get error message if I try and view followed thread.

Someone posted a photo yesterday for identification. I can't enlarge it, neither can nut, so can't help.

If I press latest posts , then it takes me to post 201, two days ago. I then have to scroll down, go back to page 1 , then find the latest posts.  This is rubbish.

if it was a sixth form project I would give it 2 out of 10.

one mark was for getting the name right.

I press followed threads and I get this

Server Error in '/' Application. Runtime Error Description: An exception occurred while processing your request. Additionally, another exception occurred while executing the custom error page for the first exception. The request has been terminated.

 This new site is different. Different I can cope with. Lack of functionality, I can't.

I can currently see what I am typing plus two adverts.

email responses are not working.

on last posts I get sent to two days ago and then have to work back from the bottom of the page.

No edit last post function. We wanted more functionality not less.

I am currently on a mac laptop. It is worse on the kindle fire which I used for casual browsing. My wrist hurts from last night.

Please pull this new format and go back to the old. it had its quirks, but sooner that than this.

Anyone got anything positive to say?

I positively have wrist ache from scrolling.

Tomorrow I will watch paint dry. It's more entertaining.

Why is there an advert in the middle of replies.? You think you have come to the end, but another reply is hiding beneath the b and q shed.

If I try and access followed threads, all I get is runtime error, both on the laptop and the kindle fire.

same as brickman, this all takes too long, is too frustrating.
