Did We Fix Something That Was Not Broke?(FR)
03 / 02 / 08 | Me

Posted on 03/02/2008 4:54:00 AM PST by sit-rep

Why all of a sudden am I loading the Latest articles page?

It used to be clicking on messages in the upper right corner solved the problem. Now, I finally found "Comments" down the right side a bit, but every time ya hit browse now coming out of a thread, I return to latest articles page!

WWWWWHHHHHHHHAAAAAAAAAATTTTTTTTTZZZZZZZZZ - UUUUP!!??!!!

If you look closely, the comments are from all the forums combined.

That way for me too. What I want to know is, how do I make it show me *just* the news comments, or *just* the chat comments? I don't want to see everything mixed together, it disturbs my obsessive-compulsive disorder! >_<

I just want it back like it was!

I can get "comments," but not limited to any specific forum. That's what bothers me!

Yes it is slower and I don’t enjoy having to hit “comment” every time I refresh. I hope someone is on this.

I gave up trying to figure that out a couple hours ago. I don't want it that way either.

It’s not 10 years worth, If my count is correct this is FR v4.0. John Robinson hinted at this about 6-8 months ago, and to be quite honest I thought he had forgotten or given up. Personally, I wish I could have v2.3 back.

It’s new. It’s improved. Those server timeout messages are there to build our character.

I’m sure there are many parallel threads running here about how great it is. I just can’t navigate over to see them.

10 years, more or less, worth as for where my bookmark took me: comments. I know, I'll just change where it points to, no biggie.

I didn't even know he was thinking about changes.

Now I’m lost. I used to go to “browse by forum” and click all of above, but now, my default seems to be news/activisim only. I have to go to each forum now to see articles. This is a major hugh change I don’t like.

Just look for smith288. I'm sure (s)he and the silent majority, that want change, have a thread twice the size of this one going somewhere. LOL!

I can't because right now I can't see or read your response to me. I'm typing blind and hope you get this.

If you don't recieve this, let me know and I'll resend it.

I do see a bunch of dimensional doors - Is that the way to the light? They had to open dimensional doors to get to the right latest posts?

Apparently you can do it at the bottom of a thread. Look to the very far right hand corner of your screen.

This is the equivalent of burying the link at the bottom of the dirty clothes hamper, but it’s there if you dig through all the underwear.

Of course, that link doesn’t give you the chance to post your article in anything but Chat, so if you have news that a bomb erased London, or something, it goes in Chat.

I don’t understand it. They got the best forum on the net and do not need to change anything.

It could be they are working on something in that code that generates the latest posts query for display. Simply routing everyone to what we are seeing until they are done with what ever changes are being made. Then they will switch back... But who knows...

Maybe they’re creating a new grisly heinous child murder/pit bull attack/insane sexual deviancy/police blotter forum.

That would be nice. I’ve always wondered who those macabre freepers are, don’t know since I don’t read those horror articles, but they infest my news/activism latest posts, and darken my day.

I, too, have always (since 1/98) loaded up directly to the "Latest Posts" page. I hope this is just a temporary glitch that John is working out.

If all this settles out with a new forum “Teachers Who Have Sex With Kids” in place, I think we’ll say it has been worth it.

It appears that John is working on it.

Yes, that seems evident.

It's funny, all the posters seeing the changes and watching the changes changing and getting all va klempt over it.

It seems obvious that John chose the weekend to upgrade some things here to give it some new features and tweak some old ones to make the forum better.

It's kinda fun to watch and see who sits back and watches and who posts to John or a Mod every time they see John's handiwork.

I think it is neat to watch the transformation.

He could have just announced that the site would be down for 48 hours and fixed it without everyone watching.

Imagine the problems that would cause!

As soon as it came back up, there would be a dozen vanity threads titled

WAS FR DOWN??? FR IS DOWN!!! ? IS IT BACK UP, WHAT'S HAPPENING!!!

With replies like

"I vacuumed my house for the first time in years!"

Not to mention 39 replies of "are you logged on?" on the thread...

LOL

I have a slightly different take.

If I were going to modify the software and the views the members saw, I would say so in advance.

That’s different than taking the forum down for 48 hours.
