In posts, we now hide the buttons (Quote, Edit, etc.) for each reply until you mouseover the reply. This is to help keep the forums cleaner and to reduce confusion as to which set of buttons belongs to which reply. The original posts' buttons appear by default.
OMG! Seriously!? Someone couldn't figure out what quote/edit/reply/whatever went with what post/comment...so you guys had to hide the buttons?...thinking this was cleaner and less confusing? Seriously? It's no wonder this site is always screwed with these pointless changes being made. If someone can't figure out these things they shouldn't have a pc. It was so much better and made much more sense to be able to actually see the buttons. They are there....you just made them invisible....why? Really?
I have spent the better part of a day just trying to log in to this site using multiple browsers and got nothing buy one headache after the other. One minute I'm logged in on the main page and then I'm logged out on the forums...and when I try to log in I get this logon.axd/ad/search page. The all of a sudden I can log in only to go to another page and find I'm logged out yet again!? And then when I can finally make a comment I click on the smiley guy above and the smilies are off and running off the right side of my browser like a bunch of escaped convicts in single file....I mean seriously!?
Then I try this idea Doc had about disabling some addons I had and for a second it worked....and then Doc found he couldn't log back after he disabled those addons. OK...someone please tell me the secret code for using this site now. I don't know any other site where you have to copy/paste your comments into notepad or something else to save then in case the site just trashes them. Seriously? No where else do I have to do these things. I never know from one day to the next if this site is going to work. And very little of the things explained that we would have with this new site is here...no easy navigation....trying to finding anything is a nightmare and if you finally get to your homepage you only get to the first page...no "next" or "previous" and I know they are there!...but anyone coming here to this site will have to lucky as hell to find them.
And why am I constantly having these autolinks created every time to try to write e reply now? Why isn't that being fixed? I'm just at a loss to understand any of this...it's just embarrassing to see a customization site with so many site problems that never get fixed...but the stuff that doesn't need fixing....that you fix...well not really because it worked fine before someone fixed it!? This site is just completely insane half the time. I would usually just bite my tongue with these issues so as not to hurt someones feelings...but the stuff is just getting completely ridiculous anymore. It just seems like no one really gives a crap anymore about this site or the people that pay to be members here...and I find myself coming here less and less just to keep my sanity and not to waste precious time just trying to log in and get it to work.
Someone...please....once and for all fix this site so it works like every other site out there so we can all stop wasting so much time trying to get it to work. And stop fixing stuff that isn't broken and fix the stuff that is.
