    Did you donate to the gofundme or through the subscription system? If it was through the forum can you tell me what sub you purchased? I thought we had caught everyone from both places but I am not seeing you have a premium membership at the moment.

    I donated through the gofundme at the end of September. I sent Dawn a pm with my donation information on Jan 14. Let me know if you need any more info. Thanks for all your help!

    Since you ask, navigation is so slow on this site since the upgrade, when I page through the MAC forums especially it hangs for a while before the forum will display. I miss the 'thanks' buttons.

    I still get error messages when I try to enlarge pictures (on the MAC forums, anyway).

    I would also love the option of HTML posting/editing as in the former version. It enables us to embed Instagram posts, which the non-html version does not.

    I know the transition has been a nightmare I'm sure, thanks for all you do. I find myself coming here much, much less these days because of these technical problems.

    Thank you for removing the ads. Those were awful, horrible and even if they are still there for those who didn't contribute to the re-work, I'd encourage you to remove them unless you are making really serious money from them. I don't think you'll attract long-term users, they were super distracting. Maybe you can find an ad service that isn't so aggressive.

    I'd have to agree with this part. They need the ads for revenue; but before my ads were removed, they were so irritating that it was stopping me from coming on the site - I could not come on at all on mobile due to the ads. On PC, the video ads across the top that would drop down drove me insane, and on mobile there would be a pop up type ad that you could never tell when it would come up and was hard to close out of. And it happened on every page.

    Maybe I'm the only one with this problem, but often when I write a comment only half of the letters show up on the screen.

    I also have problems with the emoticons. Sometimes the show up and sometimes not.

    Does this happen in every forum, or only certain ones?

    We're trying to figure out what causes this, can you let us know what browser and OS you're using when this occurs?

    Hello -- apologies if this has been answered already on different posts.

    - I can't seem to find my old sale post, is there a way to get back the post with the migration process, or do I have to start a brand new post?
    - I can't seem to also locate my existing feedback, is that also going to be migrated, or have I lost that as well?

    Thanks!

    I'm having the above issue too no matter where I'm at on the site.

    Here is a link to your sale thread. http://www.specktra.net/showthread.p...Becca-and-more
    Post in the Clearance Bin are removed after they have been inactive for 6 months, so going forward, don't forget to keep it bumped up. =)

    As for feedback, we are still working on that. I am not sure if we will be able to regain what we had or not.
    Thanks!

    You should be receiving email notifications for PM's, but your thread subscriptions are set to "Subscribe with no notification". If you need assistance changing that, PM me.

    Yes, I'm still having that loading page hangup that patentg33k talked about above. Almost like it has to load twice is the only way I can describe it. I'm using Firefox. I am happy that I can upload more photos now Thanks

    Chrome also. It used to hang as others have described - the page outline (for lack of a better term) would appear, and the full content eg posts or subs list, would take a second or two longer, enough of a difference to be noticeable. Now the lag, if any, is almost indistinguishable.

    I'm having the same problems others have had, not being able to click on image thumbnails to enlarge them. Same error message about not having permission to access the page. For me it is happening seemingly only in The Scoop section.

    I have also definitely noticed the improvement with page load times. Very nice! Thank y'all for the hard work I imagine must have gone/still be going into all this.

    I've noticed that once that particular thread has been moved into Color Collections, you can enlarge the pics to have a look. I understand if it's to deter other people from sharing without owner's permission. But for those who don't share photos at all and just to see the swatch/product, it can be a bit on the irritating side.

    Thanks for everything you've fixed so far!
    I tried to upload my picture in the "Operation use it up" thread yesterday, but it was depicted upside down several times I tried. Even when I turned it 180 degrees in my picture editor before uploading, it showed up upside down. I did try it both on my phone (Chrome) and my laptop (Firefox). I'm not complaining, because it't amazing how the site has improved in the past time, but I guess it's good to let you know about this?
