    Kinda quiet around here…


    by oldbaritone ·

    Has anyone else noticed that there doesn’t seem to be as many posts and questions as there used to be on the old site?

    Sorry, I can’t give “thumbs”, but I’ll give “votes” for a Friday…

      It seems that way to me.

      Numbers are moving upwards very slowly, most of my contacts are missing so I can’t easily hunt them down to see what they’ve been up to. Getting around is still rather confusing. Forum navigation is kinda clunky. The forums are the biggest draw for me. Gonna take some getting used to. I hope I get used to it.

      I’ve noticed that as well

      Hopefully no one left because of the new site design.

      Everybody’s still dazed.
      Some may never recover, but hopefully most will…
      I may have lost contacts, some people I think used to have me as a contact don’t any more at least.
      Is it now so that a mutual contacthood is required for peermailing?
      If so it’s gonna be difficult to fix, especially as there’s no list of “who follows me”… I can’t see who’s following me so I can start following them too, again.
      Needless to say all regulars are welcome, drop me a note if’n I don’t already follow.

        With Contacts and whatnot. I figure you’ll know when I’m stalking your ass.

          You know it’s cold here… you’ll want to try a water-free cholesterol cream for your gun hand. That stuff is anti-freeze for the skin… keeps it from gumming up so easily from frost. Now, muscles and tendons are a different matter, but the water-free grease will insulate a bit too. I guess a pharmacist should be able to drum up pure cholesterol.

        Yes it is something we talked about

        at the TR Gathering last June, to cut down on spam emails from other members, both sides must follow each other to be able to peer mail.

      I’m still recovering…

      Like Ansu commented most of the regulars are trying to accommodate to the new design/organization/etc. I know that’s true for me. I lurked around for a while to try and figure out the structure. I really like the way things look now, but I wish the organization had been left alone.

        At least as applies to the Forums, was far better ‘the old way’. I’d quote a friend of mine, but I need to ask first. 😉

      Difficult to keep up any more

      My preferred method of staying current went out with the bathwater. I’m trying to figure out a way that works efficiently without flooding me with feeds or email.

      So far, I’m not finding one.

        I’ve the added emails

        related to spam. That was a nightmare in itself. Now, since Boxy (as opposed to boxy) is on the scene, at least my primary email is no longer inundated. :\

        that the “contacts” tab on the discussions page leads to a digest that includes WC discussions?
        That could just be useful…
