New Forum is a Welcome Surprise

I read over there yesterday that it will convert to read-only in a couple of weeks. It will be a shame to see it go, after a dozen years posting there, but I am really pleased that there is somewhere else for us political junkies to engage our inner-nerd. :wink:


i like the mobile version better. much fewer clicks to get to what i want.

for example, on the old site i had to tap four times to see Politics. all i do now is click “SeanHannity” at the top. i do admit the ads slow things down but since this new site takes me directly to where i left off reading in each thread my scrolling is also down.

i think this board will have much more activity. it says i’ve already read 3,200 posts. that’s insane. it’s because it’s more efficient and you can get right to where you left off.

What’s cool is you can use ones that come with your iPad/iPhone.

At least…I can see them. Don’t know what you see.


That’s one of the things I like best. Easy to pick up where you left off.

Had to run in here and post that this “similar thread” notification is awesome

Yeah, that happened to me, too, on my iPhone.

Just noticed that you can see people replying to a thread in real time. Nice.

This one is good for “bad hair day”.

I’m liking it. You can actually follow a conversation as it develops. So many times in the other forum the meaning of a post was lost when it was not connected with its preceding posts.

I have no problem with ads so far. The problem in the other forum is that it would so often freeze my computer while add related files were downloaded. If no problems, I will leave ads. If the forum pays for itself, all the better in the long run.

Hi everybody! No more sig lines huh? Well I was going to use it for full disclosure purposes, since I was formerly known as Gop_fan, well I guess nobody will know now😉 I’ve got some learnin’ to do in here. I don’t know what mode I am in or what, but if I make a typo and try to delete, it just goes crazy, I watch whole sentence deletions, even if I hit ‘delete once… maybe I’m due for a new IPad… Still figuring out how to navigate, good to see familiar people here and any newbies of course.

Welcome Gop_fan. Glad you’re here

Good to see you Conan! Things are moving quickly here. I keep getting that yellow box telling me to be kind… I’m freaking kind! :rage::grinning:

Hmmmmm I am away for a few weeks and come back and everything is changed, Oh well guess I will get used to it


Shouldn’t we start a new bar here…so we have a place to come and forget about our troubles! LOL

Yes! What was the name of the dude with the martini glass? Name is on the tip of my tongue.

Hope he and others find out about this place.

Two things:

  1. I really like that when you start reading a really long thread the system will track for you where you were in the thread if you leave and come back later. It appears that the gray number above is where it returns me to if I go back, the blue number is posts since I last visited the thread.

  2. You can now copy/paste images directly from the clipboard now. I took a screen shot, highlighted the area in a red box to emphasize it and then copy/pasted directly into the web page. So cool not having to upload and/or link to web files now.


ha! I did it! I didn’t even have to start a new message first.
