l gotta say.....

IT WOULD HAVE BEEN GREAT TO HAVE HAD A WARNING OR ANNOUNCEMENT FIRST.

Mod functions not where they use to be but still available after looking and poking around.
 

@oz93666 - you'll find three dots top right of your post. lt drops options down.
Should find 'edit' there  😉

Hi everyone.  It looks like we're currently back to relatively normal at the moment. Davidicke.com was under a sustained attack for over 72 hours and  Ickonic was under a sustained attack for abo

Lets see if this totally cut down try works ....   2 hours ago, Basket Case said: Ta  How long do things like this remain available ? (and how do you find them) I don't know

I can't .... I have asked but the developers have not replied (fucking pain I know)   I asked Gareth if I can have a copy of the old forum database and was told "That should be fine for you

For some reason, those 'blocks' on the right only appear in this forum topic, and I can't remove them. (Not that I put them there in the first place).

 

Forum software been updated I would guess!

Oh that's fun. There's a big blue line appears underneath which are your unread replies on a topic you've viewed. Like that.

What a fucking mess this is !!! 

 

There is one good thing . When someone quotes someone only part of the post being answered  is shown ... this is a good idea because people didn't have the wit themselves to reduce the original post !! and would often duplicate a massive post and add some stupid comment like "great idea" .... This takes up lots of space and costs money to store .. so this is good it has steam lined the forum ...

 

But all these space saving  benefits have been lost cos now our posts are jammed into the left hand two thirds of the page ... the right one third is left empty !! except for the top  which is full of rubbish ! ..What genius thought that up!! Someone who only knows twitters and tweets  is used to doing everything on a phone with a cramped format . Cramped format gives cramped expression and cramped ideas good for tweeters but not appropriate for  this forum 

 

So this is another example of the forum being sabotaged  ... dumbing it down , making more friendly to phone users who make snap banal comments when out on the street ,  between chatting to their friends , no real thought in a post ..

Computer users are typically at home , on their own and give more attention and thought to posts ...

I'm not suggesting the people behind these changes are willfully sabotaging the forum  , it's all done by mind influence aimed at them from the controllers 

 

Just change this one thing back and I'll shut up

Just block it if you are not interested in the twitter type stats.

I don't see it and get the full width replies / posts.

 

I take it that you use adblock / adblock plus or ghostery type software.

Just add this to your blocked / restricted list and you will never see it. Thus your screen will be back to normal.

 Bless you Lake .... 

 

I've just installed Adblockplus (I think)

 

Trouble is once installed it switches to Thai language ... so working in the dark ... I think something needs changing in microsoft settings ...

 

As yet no success

I am having difficulty editing OLD posts, in this case, one I made only a couple of hours previously. The option to do so is not appearing in the drop down menu accessed by clicking on the three dots in the top right corner. Please can a moderator explain why this has happened to me.

Only 1 hr allowed to edit a post ... I think it should be extended to at least 2

more than enough....

 

People who make one line comments have no need for edit at all ! No thought goes into their posts , they say nothing worth reading  ...

 

A few craft their posts carefully , and are still thinking about what they typed house later  , their own posts stimulate their own thinking , and they come up with improvements   ,also being aware it maybe read by future generations ( if management take care in preserving it) 

 

This is the difference between twitters and tweets used by the dumbed down masses and forums which should be for more serious thinkers.
