Don't Give Up Your Guns

Guess I'm going to have to lay off the wine when looking at the site now. Crap, I see one version & figure it out, see another version & figure it out, etc. Is it ever going to stop??? I get it, I understand new & improved. But I see this all the time on other websites where it looks a bit different and the functionality is a bit different but the end result is the same. Just causes me frustration and confusion. Okay, thanks for reading and I'll go crawl back in my hole.

My only complaint so far is that the avatar space is square and my old avatar was rectangular so no matter how I cropped it the entire text of the meme I was using would not be inside the square. My solution was to find a new meme to use that was square shaped-Grumpy Cat for the win!

Don't worry. It was the same for 10 years. Hopefully it'll be like this for 10! 😂

Could be larger... I have lots of space to the left of the avatar and to the right of the text box. Titan, up the pix to something like 800x800 :devilish:

Yes I’ve noticed duplicated messages. This is probably from the final data port that was done from the old database. Going forward this should not be an issue but will look into getting that cleaned up.

So Tapatalk no longer works for me. Also, even with the “keep me logged in” box clicked, it still logs me out. This is on Safari.
Yep. Doesn't work for anyone. Consider it down until further notice. Should be up again soon.

This was addressed (scroll up).

I'll repeat that one reason for the new platform is that it is mobile friendly. It is much faster and responsive than the old site was when using Tapatalk.

New posts and whats new are working fine so not sure what the deal is.
As far as changing buttons in the code that'll probably not happen.

So, you have to open a thread and then click on the "jump to new" button? Or is it also somewhere else? I can't seem to find it.
Click on thread, yep..The button is upper right of the page for me.
Sometimes, it seems to happen automatically. Jumps to the latest post/comment, I mean.
