The sooner we can get rid of the silhoutte avatar (or anything else in its place) the better -- if people don't want an avatar, let that be their choice

 

It is more or less a digital person...I really do not think we need to make it blank.  IMHO

Twice so far, I've clicked on New Content and it's said "There is no new content".  I clicked on it again, and a dozen threads show up.

Yeah, me too. I have a bookmark for subscribed, and a separate bookmark for new posts, but it doesn't seem like you can do both since it always goes to the same new content screen.

You can also collapse any given group of forums by clicking the plus/minus on the forum header.

 

Yes, but that doesn't filter View New Content.  Also, the pluses and minuses aren't showing up for me.  I knew they were supposed to be there and clicking on them works, the the image is not actually there.

 

What's the Client area for?


I'm sure Directv can't wait to get their hands on your unit.

I just noticed that there are 'messenger' and 'notification' links to the left of the profile link but no text is diplayed labling them

Also to the left of :"Forums" there is an "Open Quick Navigation" with no labeling.

New site doesn't work with the Android App.

 

As was mentioned in the announcement, the app will no longer be used as it is not supported by the platform (It has gone Vb only.)  You can use your any mobile browser and the site will use the mobile version of the skin which is quite nice.

 

Please feel free to remove the app. 

 

Thanks

What other purchases would there be?  Seems odd to have a whole section for that.

 

When switching to the IP Board Theme, I get a Server Error just about everytime I try to do something (load a new page)

Yep, that needed to index into the system and it also is based on your last vist and activate on the site.  So it will change based on what is happening.

 

Thanks

I'm trying to figure out how to have one bookmark for just threads that I follow, and another bookmark for just all new posts in any thread. When I set them up it keeps taking me to the same new content screen, and when I change it, it then changes it for the other.

 

I usually use these two bookmarks all day long ... I client on subscribed and browse around, and then click on all new and browse around, and want them to be totally separate and available via a bookmark, and not have to click around on the new content screen.

 

I also want it to exclude the Dish forums.

Yes, but I don't think there was new content in 12 different threads in the 1 second it took for me to hit New Content again.

Seeing the bookmark were made for the old software function, you would not want to use those as they would not be correct.

David shouldn't the label identifying the link be shown, just not have a number displaying when no new.  That's previously how it worked.

FWIW I've seen that too.

 

Is there a BUG report section?

Yes, I agree, just trying to setup new bookmarks to do exactly the same thing.

 

One bookmark to show all threads that I subscribe to.

I don't think friends made the transfer, I don't have any either.
