    You guys providing constructive criticism is very important. The new software can be customized in a lot of ways so going forward things should only get better!

    It mainly happens in threads with a lot of posts & a lot of pictures. Animated stuff has always slowed things down. Right this minute, I feel like I'm typing in molasses.

    That's one reason I wasn't crazy about Rivals decision to allow 50 posts per page. It will work great for most threads but the ones dominated by pictures will really tax your system. Maybe it will improve as they work on the formatting.

    Yep. We used to have this problem worse when Rivals allowed a zillion pix in signatures & they were huge & a lot were animated. I actually liked when they required them to be smaller & limited the number.

    And given some's abilities on here, spell check would have been great. :D But some of our most fun threads have come from dramatic misspellings.

    I have trouble remembering how to spell my own name but Google Chrome has a built in spell checker so it saves me often.

    Yeah it puts a red underline on any word that is misspelled and you right click to pull up suggestions.

    Okay, next question....how do you "delete" a conversation? Or even can you delete a conversation?

    Never mind. Figured it all on my very own.

    Shouldn't I get an extra point or two for that?

    Are you referring to threads or what the board calls a "Conversation" and that's the private messaging area? You can't delete a post or thread but you could edit your own posts. As for PM convos then you go to the envelope icon at the top right hand side and choose "Show All". From there click on the little empty box beside the conversation's title and then you can choose to leave the the conversation.

    Yeah, "leaving the conversation" will actually delete it but gives you the "option" of still accepting messages from the person. I went from a couple of conversations down to 2 so it didn't get overly cluttered.

    Many thanks for the feature, though.

    I guess likes are based on each individual post and everyone may like a single post one time?

    You are doing a great job. We could have used you over here all the time.

    81,000? Mouthy little thing, aren't you? Guess I'd best put a smiley face here. :D

    I own a couple sites on the network and have the oldest site out there so I've racked up a lot of posts over the years. Honestly I've only visited this board or the main board a few times since Rivals started them years ago but I decided to dedicate my day to coming over here and helping as much as possible. I love the new boards and I just want people to see the benefits and help them get past that learning curve.

    I'm testing to see if my post count is different from board to board. So, test.

    The count will be the same on all of the new boards but not your home site until we move those over next week.

    I'm not a fan of Xenforo, but I guess it's better than what we had before.

    You need the link to the video and then when you go to posts a message click on the "Media" icon on the toolbar above the text area and place the URL into that box and click "Embed" and then "Post Reply". That should do it.

    My favorite feature is if you highlight text and then select reply it will only quote the selected text in the reply. I can see where that will be useful.

    VERN,

    Come back!

    I usually was able to get onto here through my smart phone & now it only shows the front page & won't let me in. I checked the "help" section but is there a new mobile address I should be using?

    If we could have an option to turn off the avatars in the thread list that would be outstanding. They are unnecessary there and eliminating them would compact it, making it easier to look through. Some people care about the number of posts and views so I guess I'll let that stay..................for now.

    Think about it. Thanks.

    ACK! Now our ability to start conversations has disappeared. I can continue those I've already started but not start a new one.

    Some people using their phone's stock browser were having trouble. What phone do you have? Chrome on Android and Safari on Apple seem to be working fine.

    Cell = Droid. Using regular google engine. I'll contemplate the switch to Chrome if I can find a teenager who can walk grandma through it. Eyeroll

    The loss of the ability to start a conversation is on the board here via net. Using Chrome on PC.

    Vern,

    You are a genius. I moved to Chrome & got right in. Problem solved there.

    Now about my conversations starting ability. :D

    I assume you're talking about starting a convo on mobile? If so what has changed, in terms of what you're seeing.

    BTW, I agree on me being a genius. :)

    And modest. :D

    No, I'm talking about being on the PC, right now & up there...I open the little envelope & the right side which had a way to start a conversation...that's now gone. I can see all my earlier conversations but can't start one with anyone else.

    And I know it's not just me because someone else brought it to my attention.

    Not talking mobile.
