One thing I always say, and so many people just don't listen..... If it ain't broke, don't fix it.

This forum was fine, had a few glitches, but it worked fine. Now it's nearly in-navigable.

 But now that you've broke it, we'll just have to learn a new system. Thanks for very little.

Like the search option for "just this thread" (hope this cuts down on dupes)

Like the collapsed long posts

Theme--meh. Will adapt

Logging in on IOS still throws an error message (Error code 2S119/1)

Logout button difficult to find (toolbar disappears)

Home page difficult to find

"Leave a Reply" still fails to pop up reply box on Home Page stories.

No matter. Still the best way to spend COVID isolation, so thanks

It's a spelunk test - you have to search for it. Or check out the three ... dots in the upper right - when it's your posts you should have 3 options, edit being one.

edit: yep except there are 4 options.  Count to 3. 3 shall be thy number, just as written in the book of Armaments.

So far not enjoying the new experience. I have been with you for 17 years!!

1) List sight of new notifications on my profile top right. So I cant just highlight the bell and go straight to the post. 

Where has it gone?

2) Edit post link at the bottom has gone. Now have to search for it to edit new post.

3) The copied content has to be clicked to expand in the posts. Wastes time and annoying when you are scrolling through. 

Please remove,  or at least allow me the option to have complete pasted content,  not having the expand every time. 

4) That's just for today when I logged in and found you had changed loads.

Just one thing I noted: the AC forum doesn't seem to adjust to the available screen width any more - even though this Topic does.

Personally I prefer the "full-width" as it's better for displaying images, and I can view more posts on-screen.

IMO :)

Aaaaaaan 5 posts to get to a circular firing squad of "fuck you."  Glad that function still works.  Wouldn't want to throw away 20 years if tradition. 

And KG if you're out there; fuck you.

the feature I most miss went in the last update - the one where you could click on something, I think it was no of replies in the list of threads, and see who the top posters were and how many. Handy for spotting the threads that were just circle jerks with two or three individuals and usually worth missing.

The "go to first unread post" function is very erratic.

I'd say well under 1/2 the time takes me there, the rest of the time it lands several posts previous.

It looks cleaner. 

a few fixes:

- missing the thread message count the was in the upper right corner of every message.  Useful when making reference to a specific message.

- SA icon not showing up when you open a new tab of threads (it has some blue square with a V in it).  It shows up on the SA AC, but not on the various threads on the SA main page or many of the other forms...

Happy to have SA, live in a FB and Twitter free zone and want to keep it that way.  Me thinks some anarchists need to get some kind of life it change in SA is so upsetting to you.  Appreciate a forum to share sailing stuff with others in whatever form it comes in.

Yeah I miss the old red tab logo.  It used to be easier to find amongst the other bluish blobs.  And my default, "E" ,screen logo is purple, does that mean I have to be sarcastic?  Otherwise for my simpleton use it seems fine.

How'd that work out for you?

In prior versions of the forumware when I was a moderator, you were not allowed to put Moderators on ignore. So it was always good for a chuckle when some fuckwit claimed he put me on ignore, as the software wouldn't allow it.

@hobot's thread and this one were my two favorite internet hangouts for a long time.  The other one died because the author posted food pictures which annoyed the mods (ok, it was an aviation site) and they flicked him, which caused him to lose interest.  

Really hoping they find a way to save the RP thread.  I checked the wayback machine and it only has a few of the pages in it.

By the way, just out of curiosity, is this change also related to a change of contract mode with "Invision" ?

Like from an "on premises" license to a saas/"cloud" license or something ?

In all seriousness, not a bad upgrade but what's the status of the Random Pic Thread?  

Going to be fixed but will take a while

Fucked but too scared to admit it

Who the fuck knows?  We'll look at it when we get to it, if then.
