Hate change, hate emails and think I figured out how to kill all notifications. I won't post much for awhile as I ain't smart enough to figure out new. Won't be a supporter until I figure it out.

In the upper right corner, click on the down arrow by your name.

Choose "User Control Panel"

Choose "Board Preferences"

Choose "Edit Notification Options"

Pick & Choose...

Click "Submit"

Hope you change your mind. While a little different, the upgrade was required to keep the site functioning and to keep us secure and many months of work went into it. I am sure it also cost the owners some money, which they paid for users' benefit. I bet we will all get used to the slightly different format soon enough.

If I have email notification selected for a category, it won't save when I deselect the board notification box for the same category.

Yes, the smaller the screen, the more basic it gets. You can still click their name to see feedback. On medium and larger screens it looks like this:

All I see on my screen is your name just like every one else's. It's just the name of the poster nothing else.

M4H, try turning your screen to landscape. I have the same deal, FB doesn't show in portrait but does in landscape. This is by design to allow less clutter and more text on smaller screens

I guess I could Google it but I'll ask you first. Is that a BS setting of something in my phone's settings? Ty

This has nothing to do with your phone setting. The larger the screen size the more options show up. The smaller the screen The fewer options show up, that's why you can't see some options and some buttons in the portrait mode as the screen is too narrow.

I don't understand your post. I acknowledged that the feedback does not show up on a small screen, and said you can click on the user name to see it. Then you posted a screenshot of a phone screen in portrait and said it still doesn't show up. Correct, I just said it won't show up. My screenshot is "medium and larger screens."

Another member suggested you turn your phone sideways. If it's wide enough, more stuff will show up. That means physically turning your phone so you are looking at it in landscape instead of portrait. There's no setting to change (unless you have rotation locked on your phone), just turn it sideways. Depending on how big your phone is, the feedback might show up that way. I have a couple of phones to test things with but not all of the different phones, so I can't say exactly what it will look like on yours. We've already made customizations to make it look more like the old site and will continue to make adjustments based on this feedback, but some things will be different. The old site was running on a version of the forum software that was 4+ years old, which is a lifetime in web development.

Can't see feedback in the thread even with my Lumia sideways, but overall I find it much easier to navigate on my phone than the old site. No zooming or horizontal scrolling to deal with and the buttons and links are easier to click (without accidentally clicking the one next to it).

ok first off, thanks to all you guys who worked on this. as I stated in the first comment you wouldn't be doing it if it wasnt good for us.
thanks again to all those who have commented to help, ok so landscape is turning phone sideways, got that. been doing that anyhows. still no feedback under name so guess my phone is not large enough.

to PTBE. thanks for trying to answer my question...I am sorry you didn't understand my post and you have gotten my meaning incorrect. When I replied I didn't use the words " it STILL doesn't show up". I just posted a pic so you all could see what I see, that simple.
I understand some things have changed for good, but being the novice that I am I wanted to make sure it wasn't some setting I could change or if the new site just doesn't like android based phones. basically your saying the smaller the screen the less info will be able to be viewed. As I have stated before I do 99% of my surfin on the phone so for me I will be going through a long learning curve.....

Ive got an iPhone 6 and it is difficult to navigate in portrait or landscape. I don't think I have figured out how to hit "view last post" yet. I'm sure the error is on my end.
Just for clarity sake, this is posted as information only (thumbs up)
Wait a minute, I just figured out you can't post an emoji in the quick reply box. (embarrassed)
Overall looks good and went off without a hitch, I can't imagine the thankless hours put in already, Thank You

Please put the gold and silver charts side by side with the gold and silver threads.
I rely on them all day and all this scrolling to the bottom is driving me crazy.
Was much more convenient the old way.
Thanks.

I'm using what I consider to be a good-size monitor with my PC, and I now have to scroll down for the current spot prices. I didn't have to do that with the old layout. (They're still on the left side as always, but no longer visible without scrolling.) So you're not the only one going "crazy" about that.

Why??? I liked the pre-shutdown format fine.
Now it has me with a ?mobile? site and I'm not impressed.

Does anyone else have a problem seeing the smilies ? Sometimes I see a bunch of them and sometimes I see a few of them. I have not seen Turtle, Duck or Cat since we went live unless I use Chrome. Heck, this old desktop aint even got chrome. I am useing windows 7 and internet explorer. I have found out that Turtle, Duck and even Cat, are right where they should be but are invisible. If I scroll over the area, my pointer will pick it up and I can click to add and that,s before I even smoke any Fritloops.
