I cannot get the “new posts to you” alert to go away. When I hit refresh, the alert remains, even though there are no new posts to me.

Thank you for what you do and what your father has done.

Hi John.

I’m not a geek, so I automatically hate all changes.
I’m happy pressing 1 button to make things work (like the big red ‘Easy Button’).

HOWEVER, the rest of my family are geeks to the nth degree and my husband loves all the new stuff you’re doing.

Click on your ‘posts to you’, there should be a ‘clear pings’ option. Click on that and that will fix ya.

Yup, but I renamed it “Mark All as Read”... I think “Clear Pings” scared people. lol.

Thanks, Mr. Robinson — these last changes restored some features that I missed in the previous iteration...

One thing I noticed — on the “view” tabs, clicking on ‘Headers’ has no apparent effect — the screen flickers, then comes back on ‘Brevity’.....

(Maybe it’s my antiquated computer/IE version....)

Smiling at you.

John

We are covering more global issues and politics.

Any chance you could add China, India, European Union and United Nations to the listed Topic options?

John, I would recommend on the “pings” links page that when a Freeper sets it to “Brevity” that there be a bit more space between posts. They seem to run together (at least on Firefox) which makes it harder to read.

Safari seems to present an entirely different issue. For some reason when you go to “pings” using Safari the font size increases to somewhere around 6.

Belay that last comment. My Firefox just quit and upon reopening showed the changes you described, and has adequate space been posts on the “pings” page.

I quit and reopened Safari but it still shows the font size of around 6 on the “pings” page and does not show the greening of comments I have posted. Bad Safari.

I like the green thingy to differentiate the pings. That will come in handy.

GOODNESS SILLY RABBIT!

IT’S RARE ENOUGH TO GET A PEEP OUT OF YOU! I WOULDN’T DREAM OF SHUTTING YOU UP!

Love hearing from you.

The green is fine wih me—though I think a slightly darker shade would be easier to read. I like being able to tell at a flash which are mine and the color cue is a great one.

Besides, I like color—as shocking as that may be—maybe to the uninitiated—LOL.

Seriously, in a complex world with lots of inputs from all directions, angles on all manner of media . . . color is a great aid to filtering priorities. It saves time and makes focusing on preferences and higher priorities easier and quicker. More power to you on that score.

I’d brace myself, though—there’s a mentality and psychology common in large groups which loathes change. And, imho, a big chunk of that population also tends to be averse to color—as though color itself were somehow assaulting them.

I find such folks generally tend to be more introverted, shy, withdrawn, even wimpy—yet given to prickly fierce outrage if their curmudgeonly sensibilities are jangled. I have a lot of compassion for them. However, I wouldn’t want them at the head of my platoon against the socialists, globalists, communists.

Neither do I think they should wag the FR formatting, style dog.

To avoid my rambling more . . .

THANKS ENORMOUSLY FOR ALL YOU DO. I can’t think of a single improvement you’ve made and left up that I’ve been annoyed with in all these years. GREAT WORK. Please keep it up.

But I trust you take time for yourself and family, as well. We NEED you healthy and happy.

on another matter:

################

LORD JESUS, PLEASE TOUCH AND HEAL JIMROB. Lord, we need him in top shape. Hold him close to you and put every cell and fiber to right in and by your Resurrection Life. Give him comfort, peace and pain free rest. Give him your wholeness, provision, encouragement, peace and joy in every circumstance. In Jesus’ Name, Amen.

John, I know you're busy, but ... what induced all these changes?

I didn't think FR was 'broke' and needed fixin'.

I agree with the need for a bit more white space between listings in the brief version of our comments page. Would be very helpful.
