This can't be right??

Postby skwij » Jul 31, 2008 11:00 pm

Here's what I see when I go to PM. Surely this can't be right?

And of course, finding the PM button involves way too much clicking and searching. There's no quick link to PMs. No USER CP on the main page, or access to it via My Profile or My Account.

What's with all the space on the right? Why can't I get the posts to sort by "last post", even though I have that option checked? Look at the times of the last posts in each of the threads in the following picture!

Very messy, indeed. Not to mention butt-ugly, with way too many ads.

This is frustrating, they didn't even test this out before going live with it. Your suppose to fix bugs before going live with the upgrade... not after.

I would love to comment on your screenshots regarding the posts times... but can't see them due to yes.... a bug.

NO edit button, so replying instead,

Seems the ads take up so much room that the pictures are cut off. Rediculous!

That is right...for whatever reasons the UCP is located in the PM function. don't ask me why. something they still need to fix.

Way too many posts of complaints...can we try to keep them all lumped in the complaints/concerns whish I could change it to suggestions thread and the Questions thread.

NO edit button, so replying instead,


another thing that has been a) discussed and b)still to be fixed.

Sorry.

Andre, took another screencap to show the post times.

Also, check this out. This is what I got when I tried to submit (got a message that there had been a reply, so I may want to review my post? How the heck am I supposed to do that in this pitiful excuse for a message box????

I see the same thing, that the posts don't move up with the last post. As well I've noticed that after you read all the post's you have to go back to the top post in order to "Post a reply" this certainly can't be right!

Kelly, I know, lots of complaints, but they're justified, IMO.

This "upgrade" should never have been done until the new software had been thoroughly tested as USABLE.

In it's present state, this message board is basically unusable.

I'm sorry to contribute to the "whining", but Dmitry or whoever is responsible for this gawdawful mess needs to know that THEY BROKE IT.

I for one don't like being a Beta Tester without my say-so.

Skwij,

Kelly, I know, lots of complaints, but they're justified, IMO.



I never said the concerns were not legit.

What I did say (in not so many words) is that it would be very nice if these concerns could be listed in the "Complaints/Concerns" Thread, rather than starting a new thread everytime you came up with something that bothered you. Just a heck of a lot less time consuming if it is in one thread than jumping around a forum (that for me still lags) to 25 different threads.

Thank you for your support
