I have no wish to denigrate Stu's hard work but does anyone else still yearn for the old operating system ?  I would have thought I'd have got used to the new one by now but I still find it to be counterintuitive and generally rather off putting .

Hmmmm nope, I admit to disliking it greatly when we switched but that lasted about 2weeks, I've spent years on various vb powered forums so the change was certainly noticeable. 

 

My interactions on here are 99.9% done on a mobile, I just use the new posts for the most part but sometimes browse through the sections to make keep tabs on things.

I used to think that I had made a huge mistake when I switched over but I soon got used to it! don't get me wrong there is some things that do work a little better on the other software than this one but thats admin side and not as a user 

 

I soon got used to it and how it all works 

 

As I have asked many times before @fastbob but never seem to get an answer! What are you actually struggling with? We are willing to help but you have to tell us the issues

I didn't like it at first but I'm pretty much used to it by now.

I very rarely use anything but a computer or a laptop though!

There are glitches that are good glitches that are bad.

 

I have set up unread to mean all unread for the year (like we had on the old forum).

Notifications seems to work for posts I have commented on.

Just like the old forum I rarely dipped into the sections just glanced over unread.

Hardest thing if finding a thread that I have read, for me it's the search function.  Good for old posts

Or for recent posts carefully change my unread stream to  all, then look back as it's normally a recent post..

 

Not impressed with the ?new scoring threads thing.  More clutter, not convinced by winning days, I know I don't have to look at them. I don't but occasionally I bump into them, a forum for me is chat and above not about winning days.

 

PS @fastbob I know this sounds sad if your struggling, try getting another member who has an understanding of this to go through with you in person.  Often it's the simplest thing that can be throwing us.

My daughter is for ever rolling her eyes at me, you can't do that more better like this...

I only use two features. "Unread" and "Active" and that's it.

 

It do look good on the new desktop though.

Fair enough . Must be the old Asperger's kicking in then . 

 

Can you explain what you are struggling with so people can help you?

This one particularly..

Do topics need rating?  Sort of thing you find on FB tictok who gets most likes etc.

 

This one less so as atleast you have to go looking for it..

I joined here to learn about bike that I have allot, I am grateful for the help recurved. Would like to think now I can add something back as well. However IMHO not everything in life should be rated and scored...

 

I also enjoy the social side, particularly with the last year.

Even if I can be particularly unsocial 🧐.

The ratings are supposed to help in google search and thats all its for 

 

See a good review? then rate it as the ratings are supposed to show in search 

 

The leaderboard is supposed to entice people to post more so they win but all it does is make people post more crap and I am not sure I agree with it myself
