    - Those email notifications are so wordy unlike before.
    - Does it always go to the first page of a thread?
    - I miss the pop ups at the bottom saying there are new posts in a thread while you're in it.
    - Slow to load and then pop-up ads
    - No way for this to happen.
    - Nor this.
    - Not sure about this.
    - :shrug:
    - If you click on the blue icon with three down arrows in front of a thread subject, you should be taken to where you left off in a thread.
    - Popup ads will help Specktra with site costs. That said, I think we're still ironing that out.

    Do you use an ad blocker on your computers? If so, that may be why you're not seeing ads on them. (I don't think valid subscriptions have been honoured yet, including perks from the GFM fundraising.)

    And what do you mean by "inability to pop in images using a straight url"? Do you mean using image tags to embed an image you've uploaded elsewhere? Because that shouldn't be an issue wih emoticons. With photos, they may be too big in terms of height or width, or in terms of file size.

    Unfortunately, not all features we previously had are available. We are doing our best to get as many features added as we can.

    Ha, never saw this until now. Thanks for answering though.

    Thanks! I have noticed little improvements here and there. Yay! I just wish it was easy for me to participate like before. I racked up over 5k posts in a few months but have been stagnant since the change

    1. It is possible to notify you on top right notifications easily instead of email.
    2. Possible easily.
    3. Can you give an example? Screenshot?
    4. It is possible to change them if needed. Some examples would be nice

    I'm not seeing the Clearance bin (it's been awhile, but I used to have access and sell stuff there). Any word on this?

    I prefer emails because I check them more than Specktra.

    This is what the notifications looked like. Note that it let me know that someone quoted me:
    Welcome back!-screenshot_2016-02-14-16-38-49-png
    Anything in blue I could click and it brought me straight to Specktra.

    This is what the notifications look like now:
    Welcome back!-screenshot_2016-02-14-16-37-47-png
    No hyperlinks so to even reply to you I had to get to Specktra, click Settings, look for this post then get to the end to quote you and reply.

    I have not been able to log into my old/active account. I have tried using the password reset and never received an email. I did it several times and waited days. Is there anyone I can contact for assistance? Thank you.
