You usuall succeed in offending someone.

Forum - New design

Posted: 04/05/2016 at 22:12

Everything is  being duplicated because a few are playing junior host and opening new threads.


Nora has a thread open for comments, so has everyone else now.


is it because they can't see the original threads, you can, they are all there.

I won't be on here anymore, I can't even see what I'm typing in the post box and the thumb and finger doesn't open it up. I liked to be able to just come in make a coffee, quick look on the front page sometimes a quick post.


Too much scrolling, I have found another site just this week, I am sure we can make new friends.


i have seen this happen on another site, we used to belong to an online church, some bright young thing came in and stated it needed changes. 


No one could get on with it, far too complicated, so as so many people dropped out, he said he was going to take it to FaceBook, he did and it folded completely within a year or so.

I think there are two things going on here, with the posters that is.


some can't find this or that, it's there, just difficult to find, so Nora can't be blamed for that. Just click on the green tick and you won't get mail notifications. If you wantl to message someone, just click message under their name.


the quote thing is much easier, just click quote and it appears in the post box.


but agree the whole thing, as an overal site, is awful. I agree with Philippa, just to pop in and see everything at a glance is much better.


Nora has set up a thread donated to this, I think we should post there as she will have a better chance of replying to us all.

Still can't post a pic on a new thread. I hope the ' improvements' doesn't kill this forum. It would appear none of the users were consulted before the changes were made. I'll drop back in a couple of days to see if it's improved, at the moment it's way too messy. 


See original post

 Someone did ask a while back what changes we wanted to see, most of us agreed it was good as it was, just needed a bit of tweaking, like a camera icon and not so fiddly quoting, now look what we've got. Most of us don't even want to use the site now. 


But won't matter to them though because as newbies join, they will know no different, and us oldies can go elsewhere.

Awful new format for forum

There will not be an edit button, if you get it wrong your buggered.


the site is ruined, far too time consuming, I have found another, just discovered it this week.

An improvement?

Posted: 04/05/2016 at 16:03

I have sent you a PM Derek.


that's not as visible as it was either, you can just about see you avatar photo at the top of the page!

An improvement?

I can't get a photo on Lyn. What did you do. I can get as far as choosing and opening one in the file but it doesn't get to the forum. 


See original post

 It takes a long while to load Nut. Do you get as far as choosing a photo? 

An improvement?

punk, do you have the camera icon. 


I only have half the tool bar, perhaps we don't need any more than that.


years ago it had a link icon and a spell checker.


Why is the writing in the post box so tiny, can't open it up with fingers.
