    Probably a new feature and addition to the "autosave" function - handy if you have written a long post then the forum collapses as you post, you can retrieve the post?

      Seems rather quicker after a few pints tonight. Won't touch facebook. If that's the way fora are going i'm off.

        My only concern to date is that when I hit the Post Reply button, I get a little "Working" text box, which while reassuring, can take some minutes to morph into my actual post.

          I've already posted on the general admin thread, but got no reply. Probably because I'm not getting email notices to subscribed threads. Can that please be reinstated, plus "last non-read post"? Thanks

              There seems to be no quote function - unless I am missing something? Makes it awkward replying to inidvidual posts, especially on a big thread.

                  The 'statistics' column is meaningless. It claims no replies in a thread where there are actually 5 and then says the last post was #2 rather than #6

                    ..........and if I edit a post the new text only appears to be visible when I am logged on, not if just browsing. Who on earth is responsible for marketing this forum software? They need a wake-up call.

                          Although it has improved slightly, it is still pityfully slow. Why? No other forum I am on has ever exhibited this problem , including through upgrades and major platform changes.

                            Its running better than it was - but yes, still has problems. If I hear anything I will let you all know.

                              I admire your optimism Bruce but I'm afraid it is no better than it was a week ago. There is a long way to go.

                                Pprune went through the same or similar update a few months ago and after much vociferous complaining it now looks pretty close to the previous version. Certainly the vast acreage of wasted white space has been substantially reduced and the contrast increased with a darker blue. There are nearly twice as many visible posts on a page compared to this forum.
                                I don't remember it ever running at the speed of continental drift though...

                                  It took about a week for most of the visual issues to be sorted out, but Pprune never really had the speed problems this site has...

                                  the contrast increased with a darker blue.
                                  Don't mention the awful light blue thread lists, you'll get a lecture...

                                    Am I alone in having the perception that since the update and the two concomitant outages (how I hate that word - but it seems the most apposite description here) the footfall and the posts per day on this forum have decreased significantly?

                                      That is my impression also. I think people are discouraged by its clunky, frustrating operation, hence a fall in contributions, and a decrease in readers, which feeds back to a further fall in contributions.

                                      I hope it does not become a death spiral. I am at a loss to understand why Key allows this situation just to drift on.


                                      If they have no effective committment to the functionality and future of their forum, then they should at least come out and say so .

                                        I'm still not getting notification on subscribed or contributed threads, as I've said before. Is this just me or do others suffer the same thing?
