Upgrade for Alpha Agora

Postby Dr. Goodword » Sun Aug 05, 2012 5:03 pm

Andrew has just upgraded the Alpha Agora. We hope you enjoy the slight adjustments to the look and feel and the new functions. Please report any problems you encounter to me or directly to Andrew, his mailbox may be found behind the link to "Team". (You might also want to offer a word of thanks if you like what you see.)

We are entering a new era for alphaDictionary.

I generally like it better, especially the white background, but I've grown dependent on the "posts since your last visit." please put that back up.

Posts since last visit is important to me, too.

I also liked Unanswered Posts.

And, what's with the bots? Has the site sold us out and we're now going to be analyzed and sold to by these dorks?

I'm concerned.

I also like the new look, but agree with Perry Lassiter's and Slava's suggestions.

Perhaps this might be a good time to change the forum title "Top 10 Words of 2008" to something more appropriate, e.g. ""Top 10 Words of the Year".

One other small point (not regarding the upgrade): Is the list of members supposed to be complete? Why is KatyBr (959 posts) not on it?

Philip Hudson emailed me this morning that he was unable to sign in, nor could he change his password. Neither could he post, and he was no longer receiving the daily Word. His computer had been in the shop, so he just picked up on this. He also had written you guys and got a reply they would fix his logon problem but haven't yet. We both have noted a lack of the usual number of posts. Maybe spam filters are involved?

I'm not getting informed when a post is made to something I'm tracking, either.

I am not computer savvy, and need help finding my way around. HELP! ! !
what happened to the avatars????
I am not receiving notices when some thread I am following has a new posting on it.
IN SHORT; I AM NOT PLEASED AT THIS POINT.

I also like the green background between every other post: it has disappeared
and makes the whole thing like reading the want-ads of the newspaper.


I've been online for about 15 minutes trying to find my way around and my post
still says I am off line. (If things are not broken, why fix them?????)


I also have yet to receive the "word of the day' email.

I have not received an email for any of the above postings.
And I'm sorry, but I don't like the all white backgrounds: as I said, it is like
reading the want-ads, the color green between breaks up the monotony
and helps find where I was looking, since I cannot take a red marker and
circle a particular post on my monitor screen.

May I respectfully suggest the IT people take mercy on us and publickly acknowledge they have read our rants and our fears, or we shall all melt into a devolution pool of gunk. WE DON't GROCK what is going on, and we need to have a public statement that you have heard and are answering our prayers. Otherwise...OCCUPY THE AGORA!

It makes no sense that if I want to PM Perry in the post above me,
I get that posting wherein I write below it. Why not a blank box?
I received no answer to the three PM's I made yesterday, so I
am assuming they were not received?

I've received no email today including notification of Perry's post above.
Nor have I received a word for the day, if there was one.

I sent the reply on a PM by mistake, I think.
I am not used to where they have put all the new updates.
Thanks for replying.
I sent Doc and this Andrew person a PM and no response.
I still get no emails, no word of the day, no avatars.
Sent a PM to slava to see if the PM thing is working.
Received one from him, but it was blank: this before I sent him one.

Doc says in one thread that all is cleared up. Far from it.
Doc says to tell Andrew, on the place to reach him on the
front page of Agora, but I cannot find the front page so that
is a no-go.
Thanks for letting me know you got the PM, I am assuming
Doc and Andrew did not get theirs since there is no response.

I may have figured out why there are no avatars. There is no longer a place in Profile to put one. There's a spot you can check to allow avatars to show, but no place to link to one that I can find.

Also, the top link on the Agora page is "Change font size." Does it do anything for anyone out there? It doesn't go anywhere or do anything when I click on it.

I'd check that slava, but I don't know how to find that page.
Call me dense, but there are too many pages.
I'd check that to see if the font size brought back the
avatars, but I don't know where to find it.
All my problems still exist, including the fact, slava that
I PM'd you but still have not received an answer,
did you get the PM??????
