Two questions.. Why am I missing about 400 posts, and where is everyones avatars and sigs?

I heard something about posts made in unions being removed I think?

Hmm.. maybe. Although I probably made way more than just 400 posts in unions. We'll have to wait and see.

How do some people have avatars? I can't press the change option without it resetting the page.

The image uploads were working fine when it was just the small beta group in the beginning. When they started sending more invites, it broke down for some reason. But I thought they'd fix it before the launch... apparently not. :/

#52 Edited by OmitName (717 posts) -

bad form. alot is still super dodgy. not much has changed from the beta. they should at least have fixed the time it takes pages to come up and avatars / images before launching.

im sure there must be some that are glad that the compromise of showing user names and posts count under the icon was met. at least add to the 'forums' button weather each topic that one has posed under has new posts in it or not.

This place makes me sad. :(

Very sad....................

#54 Posted by harry_james_pot (10060 posts) -

Yeah, it's been a while, I stopped in out of the blue the other night and saw all this hoopla over the new site, and figured I'd come check it out and see what it's all about.

So will you be staying?

You post total is the amount you had when the closed beta started, anything you posted after that did not count towards your total.

I had around 9400 posts when the beta started, so that can't be it.

Yeah, I never totally leave GS I just get really busy sometimes in other things I do online and don't make it here as often as I would like but I'm looking forward to a time I can be a more regular user again, although most by now don't even know who I am and few I knew from my regular days are even around but I still come in the hope of seeing them again and meeting new people as well.

#58 Posted by double_decker (145750 posts) -

I see a locked thread already in the main chat, I sense the era of the condescending, power tripping Moderator coming back as the general theme again with the new Terms of Use. Time to tighten up the ole posting habits again I'm thinking.

Good thing I have mine saved. But I may change it anyway.

So, how are you?

Yep, the replied icon is gone. And so is the last unread post button.

Those should be really easy to implement though, we should make a thread about it in the feedback forum. But wait a couple of days first, because it's insane over there atm with everyone freaking out.

I'm waiting to do mine for a few days when they have things more sorted out. Maybe tomorrow night if things seem ok since I don't work tomorrow night.

There's a separate box for that. :P

Seriously people give it time. This is the first overhaul this site has had in ages. Keep the piss at the door.

#68 Posted by Chow_Mein_Kampf (6651 posts) -

I feel like pissing on the bloody carpet!

Rarely got any PMs originally...............

That notification inbox is quite a thorn in my side, though........................

I didn't have too many of them and none of them were important. Kind of feel sorry for the users that did use PMs extensively.

I was talking about the beta that started for the mods which was like 6 weeks ago.

Yeah, I used it often to talk to a select few users.

I'm missing almost 5000 posts. There's no way I made that many in 6 weeks.

I hate how they compressed the sections. PC hardware definitely need its own section....

#80 Posted by Nintendo_Man (19626 posts) -

Are you sure? lol

I will just post that in the feedback and bugs section so they can give you an answer.

I see. I only got access to the site 3-4 weeks ago. So when we were getting sent just screenshots from the site to give feedback on, you were already using it?

Edit: This still doesn't explain it though. Even 2 months ago I had more posts than I do now..

My post count has dropped quite a bit and I'm assuming it's the posts I made in unions and forums that weren't carried over to the new site.

I'm missing about 6k, but it's really no biggie to me.

That will become one unsanitary door.

Best I can say right now........I don't hate it. Although it is funny seeing some names chopped off.

I just think that if they bothered to keep our post counts, they should be an accurate number.

I've made more posts overall in unions than the main forums, so that can't be it.

One thing that I would LOVE to see is a link to the board you are posting in at the bottom of the page so you don't have to scroll up to get back to OT

Unless they removed posts from specific unions/boards...I mean they were able to alter Fastesttruck's post count...

That kinda makes sense.. Maybe we lost the posts from only the unions that won't make it over and be converted into regular boards?

I didn't think unions were going to make it over...or was that just user created board's that were going to be deleted?

They contacted the leaders of the unions that were still active, and gave them the option to be made into a normal board on the new site.

Weird. I would imagine that there were only a handful of active unions left and of those active unions, I wonder how many were not just replacements for Off-Topic.
