The quick reply thing is cool enough, but I am missing the "last poster" feature. It was a great way to judge movement on a thread, and see who was in on it.

 

I still think some sticky threads, like JC's excellent theory thread, a new poster thread, etc. would be good.

 

And, my thanks to Music Player and these forae!

 

Peace,

I'm a lot more like I am now than I was when I got here.

Have not studied the new documentation very much yet, but the Featured Topic is a sticky thread mods can use to keep something at the top of the page.

 

We've been discussing this for a while, and we are composing just such a thread.

Yep. I'm the other voice in the head of davebrownbass.

My bookmark is working just fine. Hmmmmmmm....

 

I miss the last poster as well... can we get that back?

 

Another new feature is that the IP Address is showing as "logged" (although it is probably visible to the mods).

I didn't realize how badly I was addicted to this forum.

 

Three days without being able to connect!

 

Although I did get a LOT of things done this weekend.

 

I do miss seeing who posted last on a thread......often that is why I will look at a thread again.

 

A little unhappy that after posting, you get taken back to your post instead of the opening screen. Although that will probably convince some people to edit their posts since they get to see immediately what they did.

Hey all...Check out the "Directory" thingie, at top right, between "My Profile" and "Search".

And set your forum clock in the Preferences section...

Like Dave, I haven't studied the changes yet (the sysadmin sent me something this morning). It's a different version of the software. That's about all I know... I won't have time to play until tonight...

 

Thanks for your patience!

Well, I miss the "Last Poster" as well. My first place to look....I'm thinkin' "What does Jeremy say about that?" or "Is _____________ gonna raise hell?"

 

I also worry about this "Quick Reply" screen at the bottom. Will people "knee jerk" simply because replying is so easy?

 

One nice feature: click on the bottom of the page where it logs visitors, and it'll tell you whose been around in the last 15 minutes.

Still spendin' that political capital far faster than I can earn it...stretched way out on a limb here and looking for a better interest rate.

I like the "jump to new posts" feature.

 

I like the "new PM" notifier.

 

I miss, like others, the "last poster" feature.

 

I could take or leave the "quick reply", even though I'm using it right now.

 

I like the "report post" feature and the accompanying "blown whistle" icon -- a.k.a., the "snitch" feature or the "tattle-tale" feature or the "responsible citizen of high moral character" feature.

 

The "featured topic" sticky thread could come in handy, especially when it's hooked up to the up'n'coming, totally slammin' LDL website that 0-9 is putting together.

 

When will we have the capability to play Pong real-time against other forumites?

 

Peace.

When I'm done with you, the word "pong" will send you into a semi-catatonic state, complete with fetal position and the need for a bed pan.

 

Once this Pong capability is up and running, it would be nice if the paddles could be pictures of various basses.

 

Peace.

Talk your trash now, Doc. The end for you is near.

 

And the gods (or the administrator) has smiled upon us; the "last post" identifier has return. Praise to the system gods!

 

I say we sacrifice a drummer to make sure we keep favor with these gods.

I also miss the last poster part.

 

One thing I just noticed that I definitely like: you can now get notified from a thread you posted to but didn't originate...way cool. (Or has that already been mentioned?)

I fart in your general direction!

Drummers are too scarce. Plus, isn't Dendy a drummer? Perhaps a guitarist instead.

 

Peace.
