Sigh..

Forums

Thursday, May 8, 2008 by vStyler | Discussion: Community

In addition to not being able to vote for the past several weeks, cookies cleaned or not.... many of the posts I have tried to reply to do not post and send me to this.. image below... This happened on IE7 - Vista.

The other issue is on XP in IE6 most of the images\buttons still have the background showing behind them, looks bad. Lastly, will we ever get ' go to last post read'.. back? Having to constantly click 'last' then scroll down is a lot more work than these old carpal tunel wrists would prefer.

All in all these issues are pretty aggravating and really starting to limit my use of the forums. Sorry, hate to bitch but if some of this could be resolved I would be thankful and I know I speak for others that are experiencing the same things.

It does seem that the forums are acting more strange then normal.

I just consider that what with everything the folks are trying to do their plate is just a little full or probably overflowing.   

Having said that it would be nice to see the forums get back to what might be called normal.

Entering the forums via Recent Posts seem to take forever for the past week or so in addition to the above mentioned issues. (using Firefox 3 beta 5)

Hum, I'am not having those problems, just the sometimes slow stage.   Yes, its not showing whos on for some reason.  I asked in Stardock IRC twice and was ignored.  So I quit asking.

Vstyler...IE6 is no longer supported on Wincustomize (or soon won't be)

I think andrew_'s hiding ......working hard on Impulse stuff. I imagine he'll get to it eventually......when he does.......the items I see are....

The "Recent Posts" only update every 3 to 6 hours.....
I've been using the "More Recent Posts" to find out what's current

Who's on is blank......

Occasionally I see Ads (log out/in fixes).....

I'm not ahead of Zubaz in Karma.....

Some posts never open.....(egads!)

The edit button comes and goes without any reproducible pattern.......

I'm not ahead of Zubaz in Karma......

When I try to access my WC website I'm taken to the settings page instead......



Not complaining (except about the Karma thing) just wanted to let andrew_ know

I had the same thing as in your image happen once or twice on XP in FF2. But that was a couple of weeks ago and hasn't occurred since.

Lastly, will we ever get ' go to last post read'.. back? Having to constantly click 'last' then scroll down is a lot more work than these old carpal tunel wrists would prefer.


The little blue arrow in the "My Last Reply" column has been doing this and working fine for me for almost a month now I think. Although I think it would be better placed next to the page numbers in the "Post Title" column.

Gotten that quite a few times here too. Always have to sign out and back in again to fix it.

It actually works a little too good...if I backup a page or so before leaving a thread it remembers exactly where I was.

I've been having a lot of trouble lately when going to a thread and wanting to post. I've had to refresh the page almost every time to see who was actually the last poster.

That was a victim of the recent Forum additions.... Karma/report buttons, etc....but will be returning....

That's great to know Jafo.Also, Since I've learned that the "star" rating is a point of pride among the artists,I vote,and I don't dl if I can't vote. Please fix this soon, I'm falling behind on my quota   And for cryin' out loud, will somebody move that #@%& Download button!

Only problem i have with the forums are the extreme slowdowns, sometimes its minutes to open a post refresh wont help, that happens at random... very very annoying.. then 2secs after everything is smooth as silk..
