Too many announcements on top! I love to read them, but I wish I could "dismiss" them once I have.

I have to scroll to see anything when I reload the page :(

 Really? There is no "dismiss" button? I thought there was, hmm, I need a non-moderator profile set of eyes.

Investigating.

I could dismiss them when I wasn't a mod, the option was right there next to "see all". Weird.

I missed the dismiss button. Had to be told it was there. Ah well.

Would it be possible to put a page chooser (yuk, that sounds horrible, but I don't know how to say it) at the top of the page as well as the bottom? Many times i forget to choose the page from the main topic selection and it pains my lazy hand to scroll down so as to pick the right page after. If it can't be done, or ye think it's not a good idea, don't worry. It's no biggie.

There does not seem to be an option, though custom HTML could fix that, I might have to ask the help desk for that. I would also like the page selector to be up top.

 It's like advancing to the next page by choosing " Next". Sometimes a site will

 have this in the upper and bottom right corner. It's been suggested before to

the Moderators. Not sure why the site won't allow. I'm on a laptop and it's worl

to get my fingertips to scroll correctly.

Aegon, let's move the discussion about the mobile site here. DNA knows of your problem and tried the mobile site on four different devices, works for him and everyone else. I think the problem lies with your own device. Are you sure you're accessing the full version of the site? (at the top, next to login, there should be a menu option).
I'm going to delete our previous exchange regarding this problem from the book thread, so answer me here if the problem persists. Are you able to do a screenshot? It would help in identifying the problem.

Hey Macha, forgot bout this thread, navigating is a pain in the ass on the mobile app. Unfortunately not able to take a screenshot. I dunno why it does this, never did it before. Yes I'm sure it's the full site. Basically divide your screen in half, mine only shows the top half whenever I redirect to the full site. Cannot scroll further down to see the lower half. It's very frustrating.

Does your mobile have a touchscreen?
Do you use a wireless connection? Perhaps the page doesn't finish loading.
How do you reply to threads if you can't scroll at all?

Nope not touch screen, use 3G. Its like it doesn't finish loading, but usually if that happens my browser closes automatically. Replying via the mobile app which works fine but can't checks msgs or chat.

So I emailed support, seems once you activate chat, the memory buffer of the site triples ( because of the constantly loading and updating chat window ) and will slow down mobile devices trying to access it. The mobile site is what it is, it does not have chat or pm since it would only slow it down and erase its function as mobile site in the first place.

I am on wifi or 4g on my devices and all of them have 512mb of RAM or more, and I can still load the full site on them, what model device do you have Aegon, please be specific.

Just to be clear, this is the ugliest, plainest looking site on my mobile phone. Plus, the threads are all exceedingly long. Not sure if I'm ever going to access it from there again.

Formatting and editing written posts. I am unable to send a post using the reply board and rendering
it as typed. For Quote Responses , I line up using the same margins as the post and the resulting post
still looks like it was written by a drunk person. For Quick Reply , the outcome is rendered just as
lopsided. I have used the Preview tab and all looks great until it's Posted. What gives ? Am I missing
something ? Worst is not being able to return and Edit missed words or incorrectly spelled words.
Any suggestions ?

          My Mac Browser is Safari. I'm the latest OS with iCloud on my macBook Pro.

          My Posting a Reply fonts  do look different as most of yours ( did you notice that? )

           but the Reply White board is from the site, isn't that the relative issue ? I'm

          using this bord here that requires me to line up margins and type. Even so

           the outcome is not as everyone else's ? Perhaps you guys are utilising different

           functions on the board page ? I mean, at WiC I do not adjust anything just type.

Ugh, these bugs are annoying. I don't see wether its an option or toggle. I will keep bugging the help desk and see if they have any advice.

Read the Forum Optimization Notes and it sounds like you're making every attempt to remedy
problems and identify issues. I'm not affected by mobile apps or devices but I'm very supportive
about the Chat feature. Sounds like a good compromise in order to keep the site efficient and
members happy. Thanks for that. I hope with future methods the mobile support gets a remedy.

Anyone else have chat issues? I can't get a grip on what the problem is, the chat is set to auto refresh every 5 seconds. Does it happen slower for you or not at all? What is the browser you are using?

I never had any issues with the chat or the others features, and I'm running Chrome on a rather old laptop. confuse

Hopefully it'll work after the reboot, Aegon. Have you upgraded Java?

Hey DNA this has happened three times today so I know it's not a fluke. While clicking on a new thread I was automatically logged out. Which isn't a very nice thing of the site to do considering how much I love it!

Any idea how can i copy a picture from my own files? I've tried every way I could think of but it doesn't seem to work. And since it is not on the internet, i cannot link it. Ideas?

Hmmm I used an image hosting site (photobucket) for that, Tir. I know Aegon managed to upload from his mobile phone, but I've never tried it.

You can upload any file under 20mb from your computer, once you are in the advance editor scroll down the page and click the "add file" button

Would I come to Forum Issues because I have an Issue or Problem with the Blog site ?
OR as a Read Me First FYI / Informational Area ?

I would never think to come here unless I'm having a problem according to the title.

If I were curious I would never think to check this area first as I'd visit the site because
I'd have no Issue to report or seek advice on. Know what I mean ?

Had trouble logging in again today with the whole URL thing. Was able to log in now for the first time. Happily though my mobile issues are sorted and the full site works on my phone.

Ah, the burdens of command.

Just your luck, DNA.

I know we got a lot of visits yesterday. I also know that at least Rygar was unable to create an account. Should we test this and find out if there is something wrong. Based on the User list, it seems that nobody has created an account in several weeks

Hmmm, I have not noticed anything. I might and try and use my parents computer to test the registration process myself.

I've been wondering about that too, Cary, but I just registered under a different username and it worked perfectly for me. Perhaps Rygar accesed the login page without registering first? I'm not sure Aegon gave him the home page for this site (have to check) but he shouldn't even be asked to login to view the contents.

I'm still using the old link ( even now ) of Winter is Coming Fan Forum. I have never found the new link
to this site using a web search engine. As usual I presumed the problem uniquely mine.

Yeah, I tried searching for "winter is coming geeks" but didn't find anything either. I'm assuming it needs more time, same thing happened with the old one. But, Wildseed, are you saying you don't know the new address (DNA posted that in News) or that it just doesn't show up on a Google search? Do you have problems logging in with the new one?

The New Link (wicgeeks ) is posted on the opening page, under " Attention " dated 7 Sept. and of
course from Donal mentioning earlier once the "vote" was taken. So yeah, I've been either checking
online for the new link or being patient for the launch. Is that what you're asking ??

Search engines ( info.com or google produced nothing, even today ).

I'm using still " Winter is Coming Fan Forum " with no problem whatsoever. Still works .

The new link is working, it's just not coming up on the search engines yet. I'm not sure if this is the problem, but just in case: Have you tried typing it the address directly into the browser box? You only need do it once. After that you can bookmark the page, so you don't have to search it anymore.That worked for me.

 Today is another day ( & approx 5 hrs since my last check ) And voila, the link is live. Others attempting to find us 

should have no problem doing so.

 

Tir Airgid , there was no " problem " for me because the old link ( winter is coming fans ) worked just niffty, no problem.

In fact, I used it ( the old link )  to log on at 5:41 PST ( California ). I tested the new ( wic geek ) and that worked too.

It always helps to type in the web address sometimes I've learned and been trying since the announcement (just to test)

The issue was not a problem we made, but the timey wimey nonsense from the Forum's host site . The Warden has 

been after them with threats of wildfire attack methinks. It actually worked wink
