Let's be honest and realistic,Let's be fair, though. The old forum had just as many slow periods. Sure, we were told, or at least it was suggested, that this new forum was supposed to improve that, but I think it's pretty clear at this point we were only receiving a canned sales pitch.
No one's disagreeing with that, but it's neither here nor there when complaining about forum slowness in a thread devoted to the new setup, when the software itself has little or nothing to do with the responsiveness. It's a server and/or network issue.Let's be honest and realistic,
I'd rather have the old-slow format that was waaaaaaay more user-friendly than the polished turd we have now.
Uh, yeah... Did you forgot my post that you quoted? "The old forum had just as many slow periods. Sure, we were told, or at least it was suggested, that this new forum was supposed to improve that..."I'm not a computer hack.
Wouldn't your point hold true for the old format then, as well?
Again, "the software itself has little or nothing to do with the responsiveness. It's a server and/or network issue"... With web-based software (usually PHP), for most intents and purposes, different code bases are going to run about the same speed. Unless one example has glaringly bad coding practices or significantly more database queries, you're just not going to notice the difference. And the features across two modern forums are probably going to be close enough that they won't impact speed much different from each other.I'm no computer hack.
Therefore; I have no idea why the new format acts just like the old format (fuggin' sloooooooooow!).
Here.... HOWEVER - it looks like two lines is the max for under the user name. It may allow more in the Account Settings field, but it gives you a "..." at the end @BigBlue 94 .Bronco Info under the user name is now up and running. I have a short thread in this help section showing how to find it.
You also dont get to see all of the info you enter into this field, cuts off the last half.....It's misleading to show 100 charector limit but only allow 50 to show but I'm glad to see we finally got one of these most important losses fixed.
This is what I'm talking about - it cuts off the end of your details with a "..."Not sure where y'all are seeing the 50 chaeachter thing, I have 93 showing in my info tag... and pepe, you have 53.
When entering the info, at least on my phone, you can click and drag in the text box to see the rest of what you typed
