Brock, I noticed on the mobile site I get to see who the last poster was and when, but ont he desktop version I only see who started it.  I LOVE seeing who was the last to post and when.  (I know the stars/circles help mark this too but it's nice to see)

 

To piggy-back after Seth a bit....when I click on the forums link I basically find that page useless now.  Before I could click on that page and see if anything was going on in the More Baseball, Football, Ask Twins Daily, or the Sports Bar.  Using the circles and stars to keep track in Twins Talk and Minor Leagues is easy because they are high frequency, but at this point I don't know a way to see if one of the other forums has a discussion going on without literally clicking on the subforum.  As someone that frequents those forums when something interesting is going on it's kind of a pain to check every subforum daily when the conversations are more infrequent.  Without that convenience, the forum page is basically worthless, especially with the guitar pick acting in it's place.  

 

I hate to sound unappreciative and complainy (I really do like the new look!)....just something that I've noticed being a pain.  Maybe there is a better way to navigate that I need to be instructed of.

 

Question: Does your forum page look like this? Can you see the reply links to the right of topic number and post number?

Good catch. That must be what Seth was talking about. I'll look into grouping those by thread.

 

That is correct.

Apologies if this is a redundant post since I didn't read through the entire middle of this thread, but on the new site just as on the old I'm getting some of the sidebar ads automatically playing sound, either little split-second chunks or full extended sections.

 

 

Kind of a nuisance at any time and especially not good for anyone reading the site at work (not that I'd ever do that...)

That is correct.

 

I have to wait to change it until the article forum is done doing whatever the hell it's doing (repopulating old article threads).

 

Go home, article forum. You're drunk.

Do you not have an upload link? I'm still sorting through the permissions in the gallery.

Nope, I see the total number of threads and posts....is it a setting I have to change?

Well, there's another permission problem. I can't see the attachment. Can you email it to brock@twinsdaily.com?

Derpity derp. I think I found the setting. Now take a look.

 

Man, the migration really FUBARed permissions. None of these issues existed on the test site.

No upload link, either from my willihammer>my profile>my gallery view, or when replying to a post -the only option is to link to URL.

Not sure if you care, but at my crappy work computer, it looks 100X better on IE8.........I love the new look a lot. Can't wait to explore more when I'm back home.

What I just typed is probably an opinion, not a fact. I mean, I'm usually right, so you should maybe assume it is or will be a fact soon, but that's up to you. :)

The new site looks great.I have a question.I used to view the forums by clicking "what's new" or something like that.I can still do that on the mobile site, but I can't find it on the desktop site.

 

Is that feature still here?
