    Q: On the mobile version, I see page numbers under each thread link. When I'm using a regular browser on my computer, I don't see the page numbers until I hover over the thread link. They were always there on the old version. I like seeing how many pages are in a thread.

    Pet peeve, no biggie.

    Thanks for all your work on the upgrade! It looks good.

    I agree. Can we get more smilies? Other than that, I like the new upgrade now.

    Site looks great! But I'm having trouble finding my photo albums. Are those gonna remain unavailable on the new format? Thanks!

    Thanks girl! I was able to get to my album by scrolling down to the bottom of the media page.

    That's where I'm running into problems though. There's no media link on my profile page. I can see followers/following, all my wall posts, recent activity but no albums, unless I'm looking in the wrong place

    Has anyone figured out how to upload screen shots from your phone? It's in my phone on the camera, but it disappears when I try to upload it. I only see pics I have actually taken.

    Has anyone else noticed the ad banner across the top of the page is too long on the mobile version. It's causing the mobile version of the web site to double in size but half the web page is blank. When I scroll up or down the page it moves the page to the left leaving me with a blank screen and I have to re center the page to read anything. Also the ad can only be read half way because it double the size of the page.

    ^^I wonder if the confirmation links times out after a certain number of days. Or maybe it's invalid with the upgrade since it's from the old forum.

    I had to re-confirm my account earlier this week after making some profile changes. The e-mail didn't link didn't work at first but I waited a while and it worked later in the day. I chalked it up to kinks with the new stuff.

    @dimopoulos.


    Yes...It seems as everything is squeezed over to the left of the screen. It wasnt like that last night, just since today. See below.

    I use adblock on my laptop but the ads on my phone are way annoying. :(

    Why are we plagued with ads when we pay for this site anyway??

    Because you pay a very low subscription fee of $6.50 a year which equates to pennies a day. I have tried my best to keep the subscription low so that everyone can afford it. It is very expensive to purchase software, hardware, and provide IT services for the site. Yes I actually do have many expenses for this site, which cost several thousand dollars annually. I want this site to be accessible to every income class, so yes the ads will continue to be there to offset cost. The issue with the how the ad fits on the pages, and other things will slowly be corrected over the next few weeks (if this is a universal issue). The ironic thing is that I do not have the issue with the ads adjusting the format of the forum on my phone. I have an iphone6 with current updates, you may want to upgrade your browser software, phone software, or look into other solutions with your service provider in the meantime.

    Nikos has put a lot of man hours into this upgrade, but he has other responsibilities in addition to working on this website. We thank you for your patience as he continues to work on improving the services.

    @dimopoulos is there a reason why we can not cut and paste into the forum (from iphone).

    I started a thread yesterday and I copied the article and tried to pasts it into the thread and I couldnt.

    The hyperlink in Beverly's post above doesn't work....and I still don't see it "in white font at the top of this page underneath the logo!" Perhaps it's still being worked on.

    Yes the FOTM was part of our blogs. I am hesitant at the moment to migrate that content to a new platform; I need to make sure that there is lifetime support for it so that we don't get stuck with something that won't work in the near future

    I must say that I really like the additions to the new site.:

    the "new" tags, spoiler option, the alerts, etc, etc
