Welcome to the new Community site for TechRepublic!

Hello Everyone and welcome to the new Community site for TechRepublic!

We are excited about our new design and hope you will be as well! Along with a new look, we also have some new upcoming features that we are excited for you to check out that we are sure you will really love - Such as the one that will be over in the Tech QA forum - it is one that will allow you to give that well deserved pat on the back when someone has given you an awesome answer to a question you have. You will be able to mark their Answer "Resolves Question" which in return will place an awesome badge next to their Answer saying "Best Answer". Course not everyone's comment can be a Best Answer, it must a a top level answer (no clarifications and afraid no children, just the parents will qualify), and only one Best Answer per Thread. This is just one of the new many other exciting features coming your way real soon, but the in the meantime - Take a look around the new place, see what you think! But remember....

We do know though that even after months and months of hard work and even with the best bug spray, that sometimes them darn creepy crawlers just seem to manage to find there way into the smallest cracks, because of this, we have created a spreadsheet for you to log any of these creepy crawling things you might find and we'll get right on them.

You can find the spreadsheet here: https://docs.google.com/a/cbsinteractive.com/spreadsheet/ccc?key=0Am6thtySNMMxdE1NRDJ3cm9jYWJud0kzTmFvUGVPQWc#gid=0

We do ask that you please use this spreadsheet as it will help us keep everything confined to a central location making it much easier for us to squish, smoosh and stomp out them bugs has fast as you catch them. Though we are hoping you don't find any.

If you have any questions or comments, please feel free to ask - I am always here along with a wonderful fine group of moderators who can assist in answering any questions you may have.

Come on in, the water feels just fine....

    I am liking the new community so far. I understand you all are working through some issues, it happens anytime you release a new product or site. Keep working on these issues and soon enough the site will be running top notch.

    Hi,

    The website does not seem to be functioning very well in Firefox, click on links does nothing, so I have to resort to right clicking then opening in a new tab.

    Also the links from your RSS feed now say the page does not exist when opening them.

    Cheers,

    What, no Linux/OpenSource categories? MicroCrap but no Linux, although the server world is dominated by it.

    Mistake?

    an improvement? Only if you are a masochist.

    See you guys in six months, maybe some much needed UI and response issues will have been worked out by then.

    "This provides an immersive reading experience by stripping almost everything off of the page" - off WHAT of the page?

    Let me itemize the ways -- the "Discussions" links don't work by clicking on them; I must right-click the link and select "Open Link in New Tab." (Browser: Firefox - up to date v22) If I click on the links under "Explore" and "Services," nothing happens, as above in "Discussions," unless I right-click and "Open Link in New Tab." My name doesn't show at the upper right corner, like I am not logged in; then, when I click on the silhouette up there, I am taken to the login page, where I see that I am "logged in." I have saved articles in the "5 things" series, such as "5 portable antivirus and antimalware tools," and all I see are the images to click on. No more link to "view this as a post in the "5 things" blog. No dates/times on the postings; why not? This helped me see the context of the messages by when they were posted (recently or two years ago.) Please, polish this site up and make it a pleasure to visit again, because these changes are forcing me to consider not coming here at all.

    The site will be a tad unstable while the TR staff gets everything ironed out. (happy)
