Thank you Terry. I am sure it wouldn't be too hard for them to roll that back unless they deleted the code. It would also be noce to not have to see the annoying banner saying I need to change style because I am still using the classic style

I don't like it where you can't see how many views on an attachment. Can that be changed back or set as preference?

I'm able to open the image/attachment and see the "view" count there if that helps any.

Terry, how about the possibility to see all the videos in a thread just like we can see all the files or picture under thread tools. Any possibility of doing this?

I discovered this about 5 minutes before I read your post. I had been clicking on the image. Clicking on the description below the image works great!

Now I'm happy again!!

It's so much trouble that I have given up on trying to view larger images.

That is supposed to work the old way. What browsers are you using?

Form over function failure?


I don't like the Log in 'drops down' and the reduced functionality/performance caused by it.

Logging in now takes much longer, as the 'drop down' seems to have a very low priority on the page and I have to wait until the entire page has loaded - animated adverts and all - before it will actually drop down. I'm on a 20Meg connection, so I assume people on a slower one have an even longer wait. Repeatedly clicking on it for about 10 seconds produces no response. Then it doesn't just drop down, it expands out until it is usable, wasting more time to look 'pretty'. The 'old way' seemed faster, even if it wasn't - although I think it was.

Previously to get to my blog, I just clicked on my name. Now I have to click on the 'drop down' and select 'My Blog'. I'm not convinced adding an extra step can be considered an improvement.

I regularly go to My Blog to select 'All posts by me' so I can go to the last threads I posted in to see any responses before I wander around others I'm subscribed to, so that extra step gets annoying. It's even more annoying when I consider the only reason I'm waiting is because someone thought I'd like to see an animation of a box opening up . In Windows you can turn all that stuff off and I do. Life's too short.

To be constructive: If you can't scrap the 'drop down' entirely (fervent hope), how about separating the name from the 'down arrow' so clicking on the name still takes you to the Blog directly and improve the priority of the 'drop down' so it works immediately it is clicked on?

Switch to classic. Problem solved.

What frustrates me, even in the previous incarnation, is that if you are on the second or other than the first page and click on a topic, when you hit the return to.. button at the end, it always returns to the first page, not the page you started from

Just tried that. Wow. When was that last updated? 1998?

And it doesn't solve it, it simply avoids it. "Hey, does your car have a flat tyre? Catch the bus!"

I've been using it since 2009, so I'm used to it and like it.

I can click my name and it takes me directly to my blog.

Yep, Terry never misses a chance to make faces at me when I get on. I make faces back at him.

No, I'm not crazy.
