    Welcome back!

    Hi all!





    So excited to have you back with us! I know our downtime was extended past what even we initially thought it would be but we had to ensure that logins were working correctly. Some of you MAY experience issues with your passwords. We're sorry if this causes you a bit of frustration but please use the reset password function to gain access to your account if you're affected by this. It should be a minor bump in the road to getting you back posting on the forum!


    Please take time to report any bugs or problems or just plain "I don't like this" type of items to us in THIS THREAD. The site still has a LONG way to go until we feel like we're "there" BUT we wanted to open it back up to ensure that you can speak with your Specktra family ASAP. Take time to explore the SETTINGS in our USER CONTROL PANEL as you will need to enable certain settings so that you can see the full WSIWYG editor as well as receive email notifications for PM's. Take some time to fill out or update your profile as well as the social options you have now with adding friends, etc.

    I just want to give you ALL an sincere from my heart THANK YOU for your love and support over the past few months and them more recently the past couple of days while you were patient with us getting the site stable enough to open back up to you.

    What ? We must use the "BBcode" to insert images, give links, etc ...
    How to write in italics ? In bold ? Underline ?
    This new forum is not as easy to use !!!
    All for a more colorful forum ><

    it feels a change of direction that decides to create a new forum to sit his new authority, claiming a revival ... except that back to the stone age with a more archaic forum (welcome to the 80's)

    BBcode was in use on the old platform, too. You're referring to the use of a WYSIWYG editor to do everything for you. You just have to tun it on.

    Please read Janice's post again. You CAN still do virtually everything you want.

    ETA: There is one thing I do miss, and that's drop-down navigation on forum pages and thread pages, to get from one section to another more easily.

    Not going to waste my lunch break replying to your cheap shots at the site. However I did mention the following.

    can you post this in the feedback thread please so I can track this? Pretty sure this is something I can enable.

    Go to My Settings -> General Settings and put the 'Message Editor Interface' on 'Enhanced Interface - Full WYSIWYG Editing'. You can thank Nay for this. Didn't know how to do get the emojis too.

    The Standard Interface also has an emoji/emoticon button, if you don't want to use the full WYSIWYG editor.

    Ok, the pics were fairly big when I first came here & then I changed to the advanced interface & now they're small. Did I do something wrong.

    <-------pole dancer smiley!

    Just wanted to play with them.

    YES!!!!!!!!!! I'm not very tech savvy. It already kicked me out. I'm used to staying logged in all the time so I need to find how to do that.
