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! :D

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: :marchmellow: 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.

I just wanted to say "yes" to the above quote but now there is a min limit of 10 words to comment??

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. :)
