I'm there but blog discussions don't show

by Slayer_ In reply to For the discussions...

I think I found them, you have to go to the blog page now, they don't show under normal discussions. That's why it seems so dead here now.

The back ends are different, now

by NickNielsen In reply to I'm there but blog discus ...

The discussions on site content such as blog posts and galleries use Livefyre. The forums use a locally-developed app as the back end.

Too bad though, the old way was nice.

For Nick

by dogknees In reply to I'm there but blog discus ...

Is there somewhere we can see activity on all the blog discussions? I'm looking for somewhere I can scroll through glance at the latest response names and dates and choose whether to go into the thread and read it. Just like we could before.

Surely an interface update should make things easier/faster to do if anything. If I was cynical, I would think the designers were working to keep us on the site longer so we'll see the advertising by making it slower and harder to use.

I don't know. I'd like to see the same thing. They say they've got the notifications running now, so maybe that will help. Most of my participation was due to serendipity. I'd be browsing and see a thread that looked interesting, then jump in. The new layout has made that very difficult. I haven't participated in more than one or two threads in a long time.

It seems they took the seren out and left the dipity.
