The outstanding job done posting latest comments first don't work no more. Is this apparent to anyone else?

For me it disappeared as soon as Palmetto expressed doubt...

apparently the functioning was psychosomatic, and uncertain of itself.

Never saw it, don't see anything new now either.

SS started another discussion about an upgrade, but I don't see anything new or any of what's been posted in this discussion. Maybe I need to close FF?

I'm looking at it right now.

Ansu's post at top: Just in. But it looks like they are poking around with the site design, because bits are displaying like crap (esp. preference boxes expanded) and the Just In is now in a thread-width lime-green bar.

edit: LOL, it now has a Go To Comment function, but clicking it renders the comment on a page all by itself, now completely devoid of context. (Hard to get less context than before, but somehow this was managed.) But I assume this is still a work in progress.

We'll get to see if it is bad by design or bad because it is half-functional and in transition later. I still grant the benefit of the doubt. My ability to do that, however, is wearing quite thin.

Personally, I hate the Just in feature. If you can click it and find the location of the post, that would be great. otherwise, it is pointless to me. I'm glad the other top rider is gone - most popular or whatever it was.

edit again: I see Top Rated is now back in another thread. *sigh*. If you have fifty comments rated +2, and 2 is the highest rating in the thread, how is "top rated" determined? Not that it matters: How does it make any sense, and why would anyone care?

But not what was topical...
For a while it was so that the discussions were ordered chronologically, with newest on top - when clicking the "sort by date" section.
Now it's back to sorting oldest first by default... which is dumb.
Almost as dumb as the black bar.
_Goddamnit, bottom line has been anonymized, as if it's a suspect not yet proven guilty.
I say with Welles: Bottom line is guilty as ****, show us its face!

EDIT: Gah! Green?!? And now the title is a link again... and not the timestamp.

And each post

I make lands me in no-man's land as a lone post with no way back to the discussion but using the back button on the browser.

I've run into that too

by NickNielsen In reply to And each post

I found a link that takes you back, though...sort of: View entire thread.

Edit: Although it doesn't seem to be happening any more. At least it didn't hapen with this post.

2nd edit: I did have to add three more websites to my Noscript whitelist to get the pages to render correctly, though.

Face it.

The 'upgrade' sucketh.

I'd vote up some of the comments, but this isn't currently working

by seanferd In reply to Face it.

I'm hoping that this loading a whole new page thing for comment or reply is just a quirk of work in progress. If it is by design, it is beyond incredibly stupid.

Either way, I'm not impressed by the supposed awesome new crew of "experts", nor the supposed awesomeness of the new back end that supposedly makes changes easier. Not buying it one bit. Give us back the old forumware and Doug and company.

This ongoing travesty is worse by far than the previously worst site tinkering. Nothing was ever this bad.

I don't like making these comments, but they are true. These clowns are full of themselves, including the mouthpiece.

I've also noticed some of the best writers write less, or have seemingly disappeared. Too bad.

edit: Did I forget to mention the complete jerks and morons this site now attracts more than ever, in greater numbers? I'd gladly trade them in for the regular handful of blowhards with no critical thinking skills we used to have. And now with more spam than ever!

Now there's a little up/down arrow set under an expanded post in a non-expanded thread. Not bad, frees up some real estate!
