Have to say I don't like the new forum look.  It is really slow to load, and the format is so large I have to scroll around on it.  Guess I will get used to it.  The facebook miniature horse discussion group is much easier to use, but I don't like the topics all mixed up.  Since I'm not interested in foaling, looking at multiple topics of mares' genitals  gets old.  And I'm rather tired of the all the topics about people "rescuing" miniatures. 

So, I'll be coming back here.  Especially to the driving forum.

Hi, Marsha thank you for the feedback. Honestly, I appreciate it. I'll be able to address things like this when the forum is all finished updating. If you (everyone) will keep note of things that need to be tweaked...or things you feel are not just right after this new version has completed I can work on fixing it. Actually,  If you want to you can post it here so I'll have it all in one place.

Right now the forum is moving slowly because of all the processes running in the background. Every topic, post (well over a million), member profile, photo, etc has to be written to this new version. This was Not a version upgrade, it is a new version.  It's been almost 5 days and it's not even 35% finished, so we bumped it up a little yesterday.... but it will still take a while. 

Putting up with the slow load times was the choice as opposed to having the forum completely down while it writes content. This process works faster as the forum is used so I did it this way.  If I try to run the processes too fast the server will shut down. 

I'm sorry for the inconvenience, I know it's aggravating it drives me nuts waiting for pages to load.

Thank you for explaining the slowness.  I did notice it but it hasn't been too bad here.  The new format took me a little time to adjust to it, but I like it.  The  "hearts" instead of the "like"  button (gizmo thingy? I guess its not truly a button) completely flummoxed me,  but I am working my way through it. 

Is the print smaller? I'm not sure, lol, as I need a cataract fixed badly.  If you tell me the print is not smaller, I'm calling the opthomologist pronto ?!!!

Is there to be a mobile version again?  I used to use the full version if I wanted to post a photo from my phone, but otherwise always used mobile.  This version is so clunky on my phone, i really miss the mobile option

Is there a way to shut off the notices sent to e-mail?   I've gotten quite a bit of e-mail from the forum since the start of the upgrade, I'd rather just read here than have e-mails coming.  TY.

Cayuse the trophy for a thank you is what confused me, I think it kinda weird. :whistling  Seems like having the names of the people there who liked the post was nicer than having to click on the number to see. It is nicer I think to have other emotions there though. I'd have to look but I'm pretty sure the font is the same default size.  You can adjust the size on your browser if need be. Which one do you use? I might be able to help you.  When it's all done I'll see if I can increase the default size.

Really Holly? darn, I'm sorry. not sorry I got to use the sad face instead of the heart hahaha. Seriously that's odd cause It's auto responsive. For me, once I connected to the site via mobile it was so much better than the old version. I was really happy to see that since the old mobile version was awful or that's what I thought.  This is something I'll have to find out about. I hope it gets better for you.

chanda me too, I had to redo mine. I don't like notifications either from anywhere...anyway look up at the top right and click the little drill-down next to your name, there should be a "settings"  link there and if you click it you'll see "notification settings" there on the right. Let me know if you have a problem finding it.

I'm sure I'll get used to it.  I don't have a smart phone.  I access the forum on my tablet and home pc.  I do not like the heart icon for "like".  Hearts are huggy, kissy--icky. Overused and undervalued.

I am not crazy about the "like" heart icon either and the other ones that are with it.  I THOUGHT I would get used to it, but hearts and trophys seem not quite exactly what I am trying to convey when I want to "like" something.  

Everything else is working great.  Not as slow (for me anyway) as it was to start with.

It must have been a huge job Debby and taken an enormous amount of your time , so thank you . 

 

It certainly is different but I'm sure once it's in full swing , speed and teething problems arising will be quickly forgotten ?
