Hopefully you've seen several of the improvements and bug fixes that you've been reporting over the past couple of days. After our first major software upgrade in more than 10 years, there's been a few bumps, and I appreciate your patience. This thread is being created as a single, public forum where I encourage you to post any remaining issues or suggestions you want us to address, or helpful usability advice you can share with others based on your experience so far. Even if you've previously suggested something.... if it doesn't yet appear to be fixed, please post it again here. And if you agree with a suggestion that gets posted, you can Like or comment on that post to help bring it to our attention.
if some of you are new to vBulletin software, this is one of the nice features. If you click on quote under someone's post, it opens a window with their post quoted for you to respond to. No more cutting and pasting. You can also bold or color a portion you want to respond to or click inside the quote and delete anything you aren't specifically responding to. A bit of forum etiquette, you never modify another person's quote. That's a no no.
i know there are other features in the software that Terry would have to approve and turn on. One is a reputation system. It is easy for users to abuse and I don't know if it would really be appropriate in this forum. It allows you to give positive or negative rep to another user. It displays on any post you make and is more or less an indicator of "popularity". In a favorable light, it's kind of a truth in posting kind of thing. It marks a person whose posts are found to be useful, helpful or simply agreed with. On another board I frequent, there is also a Thanks button at the bottom of each post. It doesn't give rep points, but simply is an agreement with the post. I suspect in our environment, that is what the Like button is. The difference I see here is it doesn't list WHO liked the post. On my other board, it does.
Edited to add, the quote of Terry's post in my post is supposed to be in a box inside my post. That apparently isn't functioning properly here.

2- When moving to the next page on a Droid,
a- There were 'Next Page' and page numbers to click on on the bottoms of each screen after the 15th post. I'm not seeing them on Chrome.
b- If I used the 'Next Page' buttons, I always came up at the bottoms of the next page, and had to scroll to the top (Sometimes that was a lot of finger swiping) to read on.
I really liked the way the old forum moved form the bottom of one page to the top of the next. NOT COMPLAINING! Just feedback.
3- Thanks to my other forum buddies for adjustment tips. Especially the '40 topics' per page tip.
4- Instead of being offered "Activity in the last 24 hours"? Could we make it "Activity in the last Week"?

What I really really miss that was a huge feature for me was ... the ability to reverse list recently activity and just show the forum, thread name, original thread author, last poster and date of the last post. In the "brief" list there was no need to post any of the discussion because if you are interested in the topic, you will open it and read. I used to scan that list to find interesting discussions.
That's how I'd like to see the "
Click Here to view active topics since your last visit (last 24 hours and before)" function. Just do a brief list of reverse sorted thread names, forums and last posting date. The current detailed multi-screen list makes it too hard to quickly find interesting discussions.
