How do some members have 'active member' under their Avatar and others have a personal script? Was that ported over of just in a field I haven't discovered in Account Settings?

I want to choose "Rumors" or "Gear Talk" subforums unread messages, not all the new messages from the other subforums!! (It was that way in the older version).
Thanks!!

We've run into a bug that requires the attention of a specific developer, he should be on it some time overnight (EST), and we hope to get it sorted some time tomorrow.

What's still to come....
  • New canonrumors.com site theme
  • Tying the new site to the forum, so the comments button works and some added functionality.
  • Full functionality of the side bar menu on the forum, it's currently not working like it should.
So things you may think that are working incorrectly likely are. Thank-you for your patience and we hope this is all resolved within the next 24 hours.

It's okay -- we have a couple weeks before the Nikon FF mirrorless leaks, new Canon stuff leaks, etc. and all hell breaks loose.

Small bug (or new implementation?) found: hitting reply only includes the last post's content omits any in-line quotes that go along with it.

I personally like this as a fat reduction move in long, bloated posts. But it should be an opt-in sort of proposition I think, one where we know it will be a long reply and we actively cut out content.

By limiting the reply to just the last thing said, context will be lost more often than not.

One more small thing to keep an eye on: I've set my Account settings to not show if I'm online, and in the general forum main page my name is not listed. Thumbs up. :)

But my avatar still has an 'online' green dot flag that says "Online now" when I mouseover. That should probably go away, ya?

(Not remotely a priority, but just a heads up.)

Trying to get used to the new look.
ONE thing I"m missing, and maybe I just don't know where to find it....

The first thing I used to check on on the forum page, was at the top where I could click the link and it would show me active threads I was on that had gotten replies since I last was on.

Is this functionality gone on the new site, or just hidden somewhere new?

Thanks in advance,

cayenne
Me too, this is a daily go-to function for me. I went looking but can't easily find it.

Seems that at this point, some functionality present on the mobile version has a bug in the desktop version. On mobile (iPhone, iPad for me), tapping the menu icon at top left allows access to the Forum submenu, that's blocked on desktop browsers, but hopefully fixed soon.

Once there, you can select the Filters dropdown, and add to the unread thread filter one which shows threads in which you've participated.

You are now a Hyperactive Member.
Perhaps you can get some Ritalin to help with that.:D
