I don't know if we're done addressing issues posted here but...

 

It's incredibly difficult to impossible to delete prior quotes that show up when you quote someone. I don't know how y'all do it (if you do). I can erase the words but the bubbles won't go anywhere.

You just highlight the parts you want deleted, then press delete.  For me, I start from the bottom, then select going up, then I press delete.  Then if there's an empty quoted box, press delete again.

Thanks, Toups. I used to do it with backspace, which isn't working anymore, so thus the confusion :lol:

Just my personal opinion, but I think it's become harder to separate different posts from each other. The background is so white, and the lines around the posts are so thin it all becomes a blur.

 

I don't have issues separating posts, but I agree that the white space is glaringly white, it can be a bit much on the eye.

I agree, the spacing is weird and the white looks awful. It's especially hard to differentiate posts when using mobile. I'm literally unable to even post here anymore it gives me such a headache. 

Since we're getting this overhaul, I wish we could get rid of the trolls and do something about the millions of people sitting in validation hell. How are we supposed to keep growing and thriving as a board if it's impossible for others to join? This update just doesn't seem like it should've been at the top of important "to do's".

When I hit the enter key to go one space down, it still pushes two paragraphs together. I have to hit enter twice to have one break.

Been struggling with this all day! I swear, even posts that had paragraphs with breaks seem to change later on....

 

ETA: Even this post was smooshed together even though I did the breaks properly. Had to edit it.

Yeah, it's annoying. That's my only real complaint. That and the profanity thing - obviously I can just stop using it, which is fine, I probably will, but now if I use a "bad" word, I get about 20 letters pouring out. It makes me feel like Sam Kinison...

Ron aka Soapsuds said he's having trouble logging in. I told him to use his email he registered with. Haven't heard back from him yet

I changed the setting back to Display Name or Email Address. I'm going to leave it in place for at least a week for those having issues.

So glad you did and I was able to log in with my username, lol. The e-mail address I had here was sooo old. I need to go update that ...

Yes. I noticed this too. It's driving me nuts lol.

 

I also miss being able to change the theme to mobile on my desktop instead of the regular site. But this upgrade makes it load much faster than before so it's not a big deal, I just liked the clean look of the mobile theme. And I don't like how you can't go to the first unread post in the thread, it starts you off on the first page everytime. Is it just me? Is it a Firefox thing or just how it is? Errol?

Yeah you have to hit enter twice to make a new paragraph.  To go to the first unread post, you click on the 'star' or 'circle' that's to the left of the topic title.

That's ridiculous.

    • It's a strange thing to bring up 40 years later lol.  There has to be more to the story.  Maybe he didn't get paid, but GH's use of it helped it become popular, therefore helped record sales.  Idk, it seems like the actual use of it on GH and the popularity and eventual record sales would be worth more than royalties from a soap opera?  I guess ideally he'd get both, but GH certainly doesn't have the money to pay him now lol
    • Yep - and that’s when the ratings really started falling off. The episodes during the latter half of the dream season were frequently  no longer even in the top 15.   Ratings had even started to decline a bit at the end of the previous season (1984-85). How many more times could you break up/reunite the couples, or have the Ewings fighting for Ewing Oil? Bobby’s death was a chance to reinvent the show. But the new writers/producers blew it. And Lorimar and the network were more than happy to go back to the tried and true for the 1986-87 season. But the gas in that tank was almost gone. After one decent season following Bobby’s return, the quality of the show plummeted.   The finale was another missed opportunity - in this case, to wrap things up nicely and go out strongly. CBS still hadn’t officially cancelled it when production started on the final episode. Hagman was still hoping for another season. So they designed an episode which would bring back old characters, but not force the writers to explain where the returnees disappeared to in case of another season. So we got another dream. Ugh. Victoria Principal said at the time she was willing to return to put a “coda” on her stint as Pam, but she didn’t want to be part of another cliffhanger. We could have had a great reunion for Bobby and Pam had the production company been willing to make the call on the series ending.
    • It's very unfortunate that there was so much complaining and whining about the format. I often think that soap fans have no foresight in terms of what can happen down the road. Neither AMC nor OLTL were "my shows" (I grew up watching CBS soaps, for the most part) but I was eager to watch these shows, thinking that perhaps the show of support would encourage other producers to want to 'dust off' other cancelled soaps and revive them, on a less ratings-focused platform, where they could get a little more time to build and grow. Yes, Prospect Park was a mess, but there might have other production companies who might have gotten the impetus to join the trend, and they might not have been a mess. Who knows? And all those people saying "I would've watched if it had been streaming on Netflix". Well, Netflix cancels shows the fastest of all the major streamers, so there was no guarantee that these reboots would have been renewed. Hulu was hardly the hinterlands of streaming platforms. I wish that fans of these shows would take the time to think and ponder the possibility that a genre that skews as old as daytime soaps might not get another chance to see another soap stream anywhere other than in bootleg clips and episodes of varying degrees of quality now because there was so much moaning and whining on previous efforts.      
    • Exactly why the others were annoyed at Kandi...decades in the entertainment and she can go DIRECTLY to the head (in this instance NBCUniversal...Bravo's boss) and make some changes. I could see Porsha feeling a kinda way about it since she's been doing good herself with her new RHOA contract, her now contract with that ent agency, hosting BRAVO CHATROOM, protesting, getting articles in the NY Times, etc. But...she has not been around long enough to do what Kandi did. Heck, I finally was able to read that Voices of Bravo article from a few pages back and did not even realize that Kandi reached out to NENE about this as well. In the middle of Nene and her lawsuit at that.    Power. To paraphrase BUFFY...Kandi got it. The other girls don't. This bothers them.    Which is what Kenya has said a few times this season as well. Married or not, if Kenya and Bolo had done something the girls would have been all over it. So when Kenya does it, they want to grab their pearls?    I agree with the antiheroine label.
