    Weird. We changed the font, seems possibly related to that. I'll pass on.

    When I use the "New Posts" button, the posts are listed with date and time they were started, but only the date for the latest post. It helps to have the time so you know when you are done sifting through them all.

    I'm still only seeing the titles for three of the top 25 threads in my "Subscribed Threads" queue. (FWIW, these three are "HQFML 2010 Trash-Talkin'", "New Forum format", and "Tigers 2010 in-season thread". I have no idea what makes them different. This happens to me on both of my computers (work and home) both of which are running IE 8.0.

    Also worth mentioning -- one thing I've really come to like is the "Baseball HQ Tools" list at the top. That's really handy.

    It's probably right in front of me, but is there a place to adjust the font size? The type appears to be about 50% bigger than on the old forum pages.

    Polls do not appear to be working. I have seen two different polls posted in the last two days and the radio buttons appear but the options are all blank, thus:

    I still can't believe this is happening in the midst of our pre-trading deadline/maximum angst time.

    I just wanted to observe in the "this is the year" thread that I am 3 pts out of 1st, but climbed to within 0.5 pts tonight - wait, no Lindstrom and Wagner blew my Wandy and Hanson wins in the 9th so I'm still 3 pts back.

    But any search attempt I make for this popular thread leads me down a rabbit hole.

    For something like this, at least it's not related to my stretch drive efforts.
    But last week when I was mulling Heisey, I couldn't call up recent threads that might help.

    Does anyone realize that the upheaval at the worst possible time is potentially harmful to its consumers?

    How long does it take to fix a "search" bug, anyway?

    Howie, I searched on "Two Year Plan" and the thread was one of the top 5 or so results. I'm not sure four innocuous words like "This Is the Year" are going to do well in the search. However, if you put quotes around the whole phrase, to make the search on *exactly* that four-word string, once again the thread you're looking for is in the first few results.

    Oh, and the thread is here.

    Thanks for that.

    Of course, on the previous version, all I had to do was recall a player name like Maybin or Qualls that was in the thread, and there it was pretty high, since they didn't have many threads on them.

    Not sure why it didn't work, but the whole point is not to take a chance on confusion for any of us at this the second-most important time of year (only pre-draft weeks would be worse).

    I always could just pop a name into the search box, and there's the thread I want.
    Anything at all that changes that dynamic, near my Aug. 19 trade deadline, is a bad idea.

    I thank you for your patience. Maybe we'd all feel better if the "sorry that there is some confusion" was extended to "sorry that we ever even considered making any changes to the message baords at this most critical time of year. We should have waited until November, and next time we will."

    Hey, we all make mistakes. Damn sure I do.

    Are you still working on bringing back the function that would separate post you haven’t read since you last visited the forum when you click the “new post” tab?

    "Wamboozled"? Is that anything like "wankerjawed"?

    Yeah, I think that was just you.... at least, I didn't see any problems beyond the known ones, and hadn't heard of other reports.

    Any word on the "No titles in the 'Subscribed Threads' Results List bug? Any estimate as to when it might be fixed?

    I find it to be really irritating, especially when I'm trying to view subscribed threads via Safari on my iPod Touch, and can't hover a mouse over the thread to at least see the starting sentences. I assume I'm not the only one seeing this, though I haven't seen anybody else list it here.

    Thanks for whatever info you can pass along on this.

    No doubt, we need to get that one in particular cleaned up. I'll see if I can get an update. Thanks for continuing to bear with us here, we'll get these loose ends taken care of.

    Thanks, Ray. Believe me, I know the pain of a software rollout with unanticipated consequences. I just figured I'd ping to see where this particular one stood.

    Indeed it is. And this was the very first thread I logged into, just to say, "Thank you!"

    Default Success of Unread Button?

    Is anyone else having issues with the unread button on posts? This is one of the best features of the forum to take you to the newest posts on a thread. Lately, I have been only taken to the first post of these threads. Could this be related to firefox, do I need an add-on to make it work?

    Just read all the posts and unless I missed it not one favorable comment regarding the change. Count me as another questioning why was it done when it was done. In the future can something like this be done in the offseason?

    Yes, this is working for me, if you're referring to the circular icon with the double down arrows in it, just to the left of the thread title. When I click on that, it brings me to the first unread post in the thread.

    It looks to me -- and I could be wrong here -- as if that "first unread" button now takes you to the first unread post on that specific computer. That feature used to keep track of your readings across computers. I notice it because I tend to access the site from a few different computers -- home, work, and my iPod Touch. (If I had to guess, I would guess that means the new software tracks "first unread" by cookie now, instead of holding that information with your account on the server, but that's really just a guess.)

    I've noticed a new oddity the week -- the pull-down menus on the top toolbar ("Quick links", "BaseballHQ Tools", etc.) don't seem to display the options on my work computer, which runs IE 8.0 on WindowsXP. These menus are displaying correctly on my home computer (IE 8.0 on Windows Vista) and on Safari my iPod Touch.

    I noticed that I had to log on, but you must have done that at least by the time you made the above post.

    Interesting. Seems like a reasonable guess. I'll try to pay attention to this and see if I can confirm.

    I'll see if I can get my hands on an IE8 machine to confirm this as well.

    Thanks, Ray. It's just IE8 on Windows XP that's given me this issue. IE8 on Windows Vista seems to work fine.

    If you can't reproduce it, I'll take another look at my work setup and see if there's anything else that might be distinctive, but for the most part I try to maintain a really vanilla setup.
