"In The Air Tonight", ahh that takes me back to 1984 sitting at the pool with friends late in to the evening. A much simpler time. What is not to like.

Is there a way to go to the last post? I can click on the page icon to go to the last page and then scroll down, but on the previous forum you had the icon to go to the very last post as well.
On some sites there is an option to go to the 'last unread' of a thread which would be even better.

Or is it there but I am not seeing it?

I'm possibly missing something here, but what are the Trophys and what is their purpose and function?

I find myself reading messages from the future. Assuming no time travel on my part, then maybe the time stamps on messages are GMT. Is there some lost preference or profile that would show times and dates in my local time?

Thanks. I set it for EST, which is a nice compromise between EDT and local solar time.
If they ever put a link from here to stock market quotes, I'll reset to the future and make some purchases accordingly.

I see Xenforo pop up in the footer, that's the name of the base forum software, so you can likely google it to read up on how to use it, and what all the badges etc are about.

Don't know that I'll be upgrading to this version of the forum. These small incremental changes and then the change in the shade of black on the font is just window dressing. I'll be jumping ship and switching to the Sony rumors site, but I'll stick around awhile because I want to see what everyone says about me jumping ship. ;)

You'll be back when you realize the other forum isn't as sensational as all the hype makes it out to be ;)

The more I use it, the more I like it. Good Job!

My only negative is when going through the unread messages, I prefer the old wording of "mark all messages as read" to the new "mark forums read"....

Already back. The ergonomics of the website were horrible. Thought I'd beat the rush. Seems there's a mutiny afoot. Sony users are talking about jumping ship and moving to Canon when Canon mirrorless hits the market.

I wonder if people will be nicer to each other with the refresh of the site. You know... make a nice, fresh start. I've been following this site for years, but I rarely post because there is often such a negative vibe that develops on popular threads. People with thousands of posts like to call newcomers a troll if they imply the slightest thing negative about Canon, and often seem to be trying to run new forum members off. In my opinion, a private playground becomes just an echo chamber, and it seems like a wasted opportunity.

I guess there's no incentive to change. Or... maybe there is? It's a nice, fresh, updated forum. The maintainer of the site has put a lot of effort into making it nice. It doesn't cost forum members a penny. Why not go out of our way to be nicer to people that drop in? Maybe make people feel welcome, even if we disagree with them? Some of you older guys (like my age, or close to it) could set examples for the younger folks that pop in, rather than start calling them trolls and telling them to go buy some other brand. You were young once too, and probably thought, with very little to back it up, that you knew everything about everything just like they do. ;)

Thanks to everyone for having patience with this process. It's nice to see people taking the time to get used to the change.. it really will be better.

We're still working to tie the blog to the forum the way it was intended, you'll get that comments button back soon.

There are a couple of other bugs and formatting issues we'll also need to fix.

There are lots of more features to be turned on, but we need to get the core stuff working first.

Thanks again,
Craig

Some of us dug Phil more as Peter Gabriel's drummer in two prior acts. :cool:

On a side note: Some millennial reporter for a major publication on Twitter recently thought it was neato that Mark Mothersbaugh of 'Rugrat's theme song fame' was also in Devo. o_O

I can't even. I instructed him that his error was tantamount to identifying Michael Jordan first and foremost as a failed minor league baseball player. And reminded him to eat his vegetables and never forget to call his mother. #youngpeople
