    Our forum upgrade was a success. Please post here with any comments and questions and we'll try to help. There is still a lot of tweaking to be done over the next few days so please be patient during the adjustment.

    Before you post, please carefully read about some of the new features that are now active on our forum. You'll also notice many other improvements as you maneuver around our forum interface.

    Many bugs and browser compatibility issues have been updated as well. If you are experiencing a specific issue after the upgrade, please post what browser you are using on what device and we'll try to help.

    Thanks for your understanding during the downtime while the upgrade was being performed.

    I like the forum upgrade and I also like the new features.

    I think providing updates for posts being moved or deleted is a good idea, it can be odd to log in and see a post or thread removed. It will provide some clarity on those situations.

    I noticed when viewing the forum as a guest, there's a widget on the index below members online that shows "recent" profile status updates (my last one. "WOO-HOO!" is included) . . . but that was a feature that was actually taken away shortly after it was added, and it appears it's still no longer a feature we have. So, what exactly is the point of having the widget on the index showing outdated profile status updates from three years ago if the feature itself is still no longer available?

    Other than that, I'm ecstatic to see that Rich Text Editor isn't bogged down anymore whenever I type a post.

    Wow an explanation as to why a post, and or thread is being moved or deleted by a Moderator sounds interesting. Does this mean you may need more staff?

    Thank you for pointing this out. This sidebar element has now been removed for guests. If you see any other references to "profile posts" let us know as this feature has been disabled since 2012.

    Great news! We're so glad this is working better for you now.

    Question, because I'm unsure if this was covered by the new features added yesterday. How do I remove someone who is "following me" who I wish not to be following me at all?

    The only way I can find is my ignoring them. There may be a better way to do that though. Isn't there a way you can just block them completely?

    No, ignoring a forum member is akin to blocking them and whatever content they post.
    What I'm talking about is the Twitter feature of following someone and having others in turn follow you. And if I had a Twitter account, I'd be able to easily mark the people I don't want following me... But this is something different and I feel that only Phil may be able to answer.

    Thanks for your help though.

    This was an absolutely phenomenal update Phillip, thank you! One question I do have is are signatures now disabled around the forum?
     
  11. Phillip

    Phillip Administrator Staff Member

    Signatures should be the same as always. If you are not seeing signatures, adjust the "Show people's signatures with their messages" setting on your preferences page.

    I tried doing this but for some reason they still do not show? I asked around to some other members and its the same for them as well. But its no big deal everything else is working dandy. :)

    Are you browsing MC on your iPhone or something? I don't know if you have an iPhone, but if you do, I mostly browse MC on mine vertically and I don't see other member's signatures either, but if you flip your phone screen horizontally you'll be able to see them. Hope this helps!:)

    Oh, and I'm loving the update so far! I like how convenient it is now to reply to a certain paragraph or sentence by highlighting them!;)

    Are the buttons in the editor blurry for everyone else or just me?

    For some reason the entire forum's collapsed in on me and all I'm getting are the various section headings without any of the pertinent thread for each. So what happened? And how can it be switched back? :confused: :(

    There have been no software changes since June 20 on this end. Has your browser or any plugins/extensions been updated since then? Let us know what browser version you are currently using and we'll look into this further.

    Nothing has changed here either.

    This seems odd Ed. It may be a caching issue. Try shutting down your browser and clearing your cache if necessary. Let us know if this issue has resolved itself for you.

    The problem of the rich text editor not being able to keep up with my typing is becoming progressively worse: it seems like the longer the thread is, or the more content there is on the current page, the slower it takes the editor to display what I typed. Is there any option to make BB editor default?
