    But speaking of which.....

    I have a question about Quote function, and this is an example. I'm not getting the multiple/nested quotes like I used to. This one, in the past, would have shown Jason's AND Dave's, but as you can see, there is only Jason's. What changed, or what am I doing wrong?

    Are you using the multiquote feature/button?

    Just thought i'd test this as i have never used it, you click a small rectangular link at the bottom right of the screen, that can easily be missed, at first i thought the multiquote wasn't working until i noticed the message, i guess it could be easy to miss.

    No. That's a different function -- it's for quoting from more than one response in the thread. But I'm using it right here to reply to post #44, and as you can see, I'm still getting only your question, NOT the rest of #44.

    I guess I'm not asking this in a way that's making sense...?

    Charles,I think you may be a little confused. The default behavior of the software is to strip extra quotes out - to prevent spam. If it was behaving otherwise, it must have been a user preference you set. I'd have to do some digging to find out more.

    Thanks, Dave.

    I wonder if it worked the way I'm thinking (not stripping the extra quotes out) on the old platform. The reason I think we had it before is that I'm careful about keeping quoting to a bare minimum, using only what's relevant to my reply, and I could swear I was often deleting a lot of extraneous content when quoting.

    But regardless -- if this is the way it's supposed to work, then all is well!

    This doesn't seem to be the case for me any more.

    When I click on Topics I Follow I now have to wait again a little bit before the page refreshes. It is as if we have returned to the status we had before this announcement.

    Thanks for mentioning this Mike. Our changes are still in effect, but we never control our ad networks. I'll PM you to assist me with some testing n

    I have never had the ad problems. Probably because I am in Germany. I also have FF V 28 which I just got

    Since I posted this a couple weeks ago, things have bogged down even further.

    When I click on the "Content I Follow" button, it takes even longer for the page containing my subscribed threads to load.

    Mike,
    Thanks for letting me know. I am not sure what exactly is happening, but we'll dig in.

    Post views seem to be only increasing/updating when a new post is added. Did not the views update numerous times per day, previously?

    Bob,
    This was something we had turned off when the board was having performance issues. I have reenabled immediate post count recalculation.

    Now THAT'S interesting. I have been wondering for quite some while why whenever I post a Weekly RoundUp I can't see how many people have viewed it until someone else makes a post!

    Now I guess I'll be able to.

    Thanks, Dave, for the quick action.I was concerned when I noticed the view counts in threads, including the popular Tribute threads in After Hours, were standing still view-wise. Since you turned the immediate views back on, the Brunette views have increased by about 300 in three hours! On the other hand the pinched foot nerve thread has had only about 7 new views, so far.

    I've had a few Suspicious Webpage alerts recently in threads with a lot of user pics, has anyone else seen this?
