    We are aware of the issue of old PM's showing up that you may have previously deleted. We have temporarily increased the PM limit to give everyone a chance to clean things up.

    Thanks!

    I had this pop up while browsing, but had multiple tabs open so not sure what caused this. I changed my password, so that might be it, although this popped up several seconds after.

    Maybe you're still working on it, but I can't find the emoji's list and I can't see how many new posts there are in a thread (so you can go directly to the new posts). Again, maybe I'm just being impatient and you're still busy with this stuff! The site is looking great btw!

    I think if you enable ''Enhanced Interface Enhanced Interface - Full WYSIWYG'' under ''General Seetings'' you should be able to see the emojis.

    Regarding the number of new posts, I don't see that feature for now either.

    When I went to the Sephora thread - you used to be able to see all the pictures in the thread on the right hand side. I used that very frequently. Is that gone?.. or do I need to enable something to have it work? The site sure looks pretty.. thank you.

    that was a feature of the previous platform we were on. If there is enough interest in this feature can we put it on a short list for our dev to review and see if he can code something like that for us. Barring cost if we can make special features like this people really enjoyed a lot from our previous software happen on vbulletin I'm will totally support it.

    I see that members I had blocked are again visible for me and I don't see where I can block them again?

    Thanks so much, Janice. I really did enjoy the feature, but I know you guys have a lot on your plate working out kinks, etc. So no worries about it. I appreciate the quick response!

    Oh, and is it possible to change from desktop to mobile mode? If I view Specktra on my phone, it looks very cluttered right now.

    Hiya,

    Go to settings then on the left side of the screen click "edit ignore list" (it is under the "my account") , then add the names of people you want to ignore.

    HTH.

    Call me a spoilt brat but I'm missing some of my favourite smileys (the crazy one with the rolling pin, the dancing bananas, pompom, etc.). Is there any chance they will come back or are they gone for good? Or maybe they are there but I missed them (been a looooong day)?

    I'm delighted to see this wee guy though: Aww, bless

    I'd like to see the return of the drop-down navigation under forum threads and sections. It'll be that much easier to navigate from forum to forum. :nods:

    The way I used to navigate the forum was by having all the threads listed down the main page, and if there was a new post on a thread it was automatically bumped to the top. To get back to that from a thread I would click on New Posts, or whatever it was called, at the bottom of the page. I don't seem to be able to do this here. Is it possible? If so, can anyone tell me how, please? It included threads from The Scoop, MAC Chat, other brands, counterfeit, and stash sales.

    Yes, we can add new smilies, but for now, we have some kinks to work out that are a priority. Thanks for your inquiry & hopefully we will have some new additions real soon.

    You can click on ''What's new?'' on top of the page to see the latest activity.

    Not quite the same thing, as this now is a list of who posted, rather than which thread has been posted on, but I suppose that's the nearest I will get.

    Of course, that goes without saying

    I really appreciate you taking the time to respond. I can imagine you have tons on your plate at the moment. Best of luck with the remainder of the conversion - hope everything goes smootly.

    Before I had a tab at top right that was my subscriptions. These were the only threads I would view. Is there a way to re-subscribe or is that feature now hiding somewhere from me? Thank for all your hard work making this jump. I know there's lots of details to work out!

    If you go to the settings page, it will display your subscribed posts with unread comments (although i havent figured out how to get to the new posts directly as the link takes you to the first post of the thread). for now i have sorted ti show latest first.

    I really miss this feature. Now I have to look where the new posts start. I hope the feature will return soon. But no pressure! I can imagine how busy you all are.

    Yes So much!! Its hard trying to figure out where the new posts start esp when it is an active thread. For now if you go to "general settings" and scroll down there is an option to change "Thread display mode". if you keep that to "Linear-newest first" it will take you to the last post instead of the first page first post!!
