Perry, is that you? I almost didn't recognize you.

I can say the same for you. I see that you went to the hair salon.

I'm not liking this at all.  It's similar to the transition that I've just made to Windows 8;  a completely unsatisfying, arbitrary change for no apparent reason .

 

I'm adjusting to windows 8; which is just plain user hostile.  I'm adjusting to a new version of the program; which I like, but has a learning curve.  And now I have to adjust to a new forum software which seems less capable, AND will eventually eliminate a very useful archive.

 

I'm feeling that change is inevitable, but not necessarily good.

 

I'm not seeing any upside to this change from a user standpoint. 

I agree, Just changed laptops and am stuck with Win 8. It seems to me that programmers can't help themselves. I fully understand the archive thing but was there an easier way for us the customers. I assume this was easier for the people at Chief. Maybe with more explanation we will ge the hang of it. At my age change is always a little difficult.

I don't understand the need for a number of posts count.

Doug,

 

Is the helmet a metaphor for protection of us all hammering on you about the changes. It also seems that it take quite a bit longer for a post to get uploaded.

Should we start a lottery on who gets the first warning. I assume this is for people that get out of hand.

 

Just checking out the edit button.

Not sure if I like this new forum or not. Some parts seem user friendly while others are not.

But I guess I'll make it in the long run.

I'm getting used to the new forum. It would of been easier for me if Chief would of given us more information ahead of time. Or am I missing something

I think the Curmudgeon just took the lead in the post count.

I'm not usually one who is resistant to change, but I'm finding lots of little things that seem less productive than the previous forum's tools. My latest gripe concerns the attached thumbnails and how they are navigated. Specifically I hate the new "flyout" tabs that take you to the previous and next images. "Prev" flies out in the upper left portion of the screen and "Next" flies out clear on the other side of the screen. Add to this that the close tab remains in the lower right hand corner and you have to wheel all over the screen. I've got a 30" monitor. That takes 24" to cross the screen and another 12" to 30" to get down to the close tab depending upon which side of the screen you start from. Do I qualify for frequent flier miles for my mouse travel? 

 

 

 

Well I guess one way to boost your post count is to reply to your own posts.

 

Live and learn. You can now scroll thru multiple thumbnails by using the left and right arrow keys. Something that was not available in previous forums. However I still think the mouse navigation is ill conceived.

I think you are correct, not good

I don't think Scott Hall deserves the honor period. Not when you live under a bridge, not cool.

No it was what I had on my facebook page. I'm not the one getting hammered on though. For the most part this is a marketing driven change so I can't take credit for the good or bad on the design of this forum.

 

Please keep giving feedback as that will help to make it better.

Anybody know why my warning posts count is showing?  Zero is good, I guess.

 

Are they like speeding tickets?  Like, go away after a while, in your record?  Can a state trooper get my warning post count by scanning my license plate?

 

I had better just take cabs.

Gene,

 

I don't think anyone else can see them.  You are the only one that can see your own warning posts.

what setting do i change to only get an email on the first new post, and not every single post...that is how the legacy forum works...my inbox is under attack from this thread...I know I can stop following it, but something that I need to figure out for all forums...thanks.

Oh fabulous another new Chief Forum.  (I vaguely recall the last time they did this, but that was a long long time ago)  Think what I'm going to miss more than a post count, because I'm more of a lurker than a participant, is my 20th century "born on" date 09-04-1999.  Now we all appear so new and green.

I couldn't quote, as his post didn't have that option - why? No idea 

My questions - what are wraning post and if you have zero - why is it listed at all

Doesn't make sense to me

Tried to find the help section for this forum - but am at a loss where that can found

By the way,  just to the left of the reply count is a hidden button that let's you preview a thread and it will list the first and last  post to a particular thread.  I would still like to see the last post listed at the top.

Testing my new handle

 

How do you post an image in the signature file? Can't seem to find an icon to do so.

 

I see the old forum had an 'insert signature picture' button. No such thing that I can see on the new forum.

It's annoying to me that there is no advanced option on that editor.

 

I'll try to put together a good way to do this.
