I have been spending less time on the new site, but I am trying to get the feel of it now. There is one thing I really miss from the old site or maybe I am doing something wrong. I miss the expanded list of Recent Comments as well as the longer list if you clicked on the bottom of the most recent. I have only seen a cluster of seven comments in the middle of the page as well as another cluster of ten on the bottom right. That seemed to be easier to track through the longer list of comments. I'm not saying I don't like the Forums. I would just like the old option as well. Have I missed it or if not, is that possible?

Kudos to moving Bonkers post to Off-Topic. I'm sure you'll see that's where everything he posts should end up. Well, since you don't have a forum named Toilet.

Thanks!!

About list of comments and other post-launch bug fixes

Just noticed a new bug -- your long, mean old name breaks the box. That's interesting and will be a job for The Caped One, also known as Webmaster.

As to the list of comments, couldn't agree more. It's irritating to have to click backwards to pick up the next comment in the list. That's soon to be remedied -- a listing of recent comments will show up also on inside pages.

I also miss the "More" on the list to allow expansion of the list. The Caped One is checking into that.

Bonkers had an extended time out and has been resurrected via the new site. Let's see if he appreciates being born again.

Suggestions

While you are taking suggestions, I have one. Could the (new) word on the forums next to the dates be in red or something to make it easier for old eyes to locate?

Thanks,
ZoeS

Thanks Cal!

It would be awesome if you can get those comment changes done. After being used to the old way, I'm a little lost. Other than that, I like the new site. Nice job!

Also, I can change my name if it would help. I can go to the MOC that many use already.

What about scruffy? He's been banned for 3 years.

And he's grumpy about it. Surely you can trust him to come back in the spirit of the new site. Let me know - I'll tell him.

Bonkers resurrected??

Bonkers didn't realize that he had to feel badly now for being sinful before!
You know this blog can do without me I think.
This whacking and slashing at will due to someone's feeling being insulted and hurt is a poor way to improve this blog.

I only feel appreciated when I can say it like it is and not have to bow too low. Some people just need to leave the kitchen!
Do as you will--there are many blogs and I use them often.

It is odd that I can be inhumanely criticized for an opinion by a few but they always seem to fit in better by keeping their mouth wide shut!

May the bird of paradise fly up your nose. That ought to do it!

Where is the spell checker?

Yahoo local news link

Cal,

I dont know whoyou should contact, but the link to this website in Yahoo local news still takes you to the archives. It would be nice to have Yahoo correct the link so readers can get to the site easier.

Thanks

Doc

MOC, my missing brother

Even though I don't have one (brother) and I imagine he would not agree on every topic, I do happen to agree entirely with your post. I just spent some time looking for the magic list of all posts too. It certainly would be an easier way to find the "new" stuff. With as few posts, comments, replies as there are now it is becomming difficult to find all of them. Hopw Cal is successful in his search.

You hate anything possibly complicated, don't you?

As a matter of fact, I do hate things unnecessarily complicated. That is why you have so endeared yourself to me. You are a simpleton.
