    In Firefox, I just got something odd when I posted via "Post Quick Reply" on another thread -- a pop up asked me if I wanted to leave the page? Never had that before. When I said, yes, leave page, the post went through okay. I'll see if it does it to me this time too.

    ETA- Nope, didn't do it here, so maybe it was just some random browser error and not related to COTH at all.

    The "Post Reply" button on the lower end of the thread does not work (Windows 7, Firefox), but the one on top does.

    The body font is too light, makes it difficult to read.

    The "you've replied on this thread green arrow" is too small.

    I seriously HATE the thumbs up/down feature. I'm sure I'll now get another thumbs down for saying that. There's enough negativity in the world without adding to it on COTH.

    On the other hand, thank you for upgrading and keeping this forum open and free. (double thank you for ditching the pop up ads!!)

    I gave a "Thumbs Up" for you. I have a 1 and half cat (very long story), 3 "Nags" and a dog. Let the fun begin!

    I just fumbled into something that seems to have helped with the "stacking"-running Windows 7 with IE 8 or 9 ( I thought I was on 8 but it says 9, must have downloaded without telling me). Anyway...up in the very top right hand corner of your screen, right under the minimize, maximize icons and the red x there is a little gear wheel claiming "tools" when you drop it down.

    On the list you will see "zoom" and a percentage. Mine was at 50%, when I increased it to 100%, it quit stacking...that should have had nothing at all do do with it, should be just the screen size. Go figure...

    Oh, I unclicked the compatibility icon when I upgraded computer about 3 months ago.
    When opportunity knocks it's wearing overalls and looks like work.

    It is a consistent error with this forum software.

    Not sure if the Mods are tracking this thread anymore, but PU-leeze can we talk about removing the thumbs down? or at least make it non-anon?

    there are folks running around thumbstalking various folks and it is getting abit silly.... honestly the "tone" of COTH went from a fun place to feeling stalker-ish and not so fun.

    can the mods please remove the thumbs?

    pls refer to this thread

    Click "search" --> "advanced search" --> select the "search single content type" tab under the blue bar at the top of the page. That's the search most like what we used to have, and it's on the developer's list to switch that tab to the default when you pull up the advanced search page, so it's easier to find.

    After the developers finish implementing all the glitch fixes so everything is functioning properly, we'll redirect resources toward tweaking features. I'm pretty sure we'll remove the thumbs down option, since most feedback on the trial seems to be negative.

    Thanks,

    I'd give this a "thumbs up" if I wasn't a militant member of the no-fingers-club. But THANK YOU! Can we elect to turn on/off thumb notification as well?

    And the GO button? I know it's petty, but I really miss it.

    And I'm not sure why I got a thumbs down for saying that before. Does someone hate the GO button? Strange.

    Take it out of compatibility view. Works for me.

    I am using IE 9 and Windows 7. I have compatability view on and still have that stuff out to the right over the page content

    If that helps, can you please let me know what version of the browser you're using and whether or not you already had the compatibility view activated (for browsing on the old site). You can check on your browser by visiting this site if you don't know: http://www.thismachine.info

    Thanks!
