Using Firefox, I'll to go the "Larry Leo" pages. When I try to go back to the OT or some other board, it is timing out and won't make the connection. I have to exit Firefox, go back in and then it works fine (I just had to do that).

This has just started the last few days.

Chicken, far be it for me to suggest any changes to the site (especially right after you changed it), but maybe go take a look at the firearms forum (thehighroad.org).

They've recently redone their site, and it's very well done.

The interface is a soft, light-colored tan, much easier on the eyes than the pure white we have here.

If you get likes or replies to posts, you get a notification update in real-time, without having to refresh the browser.

If you start typing out a reply or post, and navigate to another thread, it saves your post for when you return to it.

You can highlight/select just a portion of text in a post, and it gives you the option to reply to JUST that portion; after you highlight the text, there's a small button/link that appears at the end of the highlighted section. And it allows you to select portions of multiple posts, one at a time, and reply (putting them all in a single post of your own), without having to jump through hoops.

I really think it's one of the most user-friendly forums I've come across, and I don't find it to have any lag at all. It has a lot of great features you might incorporate here.

Thanks for looking

Hey, I've noticed a big improvement already-

the day of the switch, every post in a thread had a white background. That was hard on my eyes. Now it looks like every other post is shaded just a hair, gives it a much softer appearance.

A little thing maybe, but my eyes thank you!

the member search and list sucks these days.... I never remember having a hard time navigating it until recently. Don't know what the issue is.


I know could never just get a entire list of all the members, you actually have to put something in the search bar. I remember before having a list of all members and you could sort them by post count or join date etc.

I find it odd that the update has coincided with Photobucket refusing to allow "free" accounts to be linked for 3rd party site usage in the updated terms of use, which is why so many photobucket notices have popped up on TigerDroppings. I don't even use the hosting site to store pictures, so I'm not upgrading to post an avatar, sig pic, etc.

just use another free site like imgur or tinypic...we are about to make a change that won't allow or display avatars or sig images from photobucket due to their change in policy.

not sure why you were getting all white grid lines before...has always alternated between white and gray...your browser might have choked on the style sheet update. not sure.

Initial response was sarcasm Chicken, this is very nice format.

Now for a serious question, can I be the admin of the admins?

Very Nice. Chicken and the admin team can change the entire forum into something so seemingly spectacular, yet they can't even cure cancer.

MJC hates change and this is a whole lot of change.


ETA: it is starting to grow on me I guess. It'll take an hour or so for this to sink in.
