My old buddy list is gone. To PM someone now I have to find my PMs, and type in a name. Before, I could go to my buddy list and click a button, or just click a button at the bottom of a post. My "friends" list is pointless; I have no idea why that's there. I can't PM from it, I just look at the pretty avatars.

And then to fix a simple problem about read posts, the whole forum needed scrubbing?

It seems like a lot of new things just for new things' sake. When many of the old features were more convenient and easier to use.

I can use the Quick Links and choose Open Contacts Popup and my old buddy list is there and then I can choose the people to send PM's to. Have you tried that? I assume everyone should have that option, but obviously I can't be sure.

Its not gone, its there under contacts & friends. All you have to do is click on any of them and it takes you to their profile where you can pm them. Or if you see them on the forum you just click their username and you get a drop down box where you can choose to pm them from there. Or, you can just go to your own profile, and your friends list is also there on the right.

Yes that is also yet another way to do it and probably the easiest way. Thank you for pointing that out I like that there is more than just 1 way to pm people now. I think its a lot easier frankly.

Thank you. Perhaps a users guide somewhere on the site would be helpful.

Who's been messing with the page numbers? This thread, for example, is 40 pages at the moment. There is a link to all of the pages scrolling all the way across to the right. Me no likey! (Especially on threads that have numerous posts)

Before, you could only go from page 13 then to 20'something. Now you have all the pages there to click on AND they added the 'go to page' box. Thanks to whoever did that

btw I only have 20 pages so that's not happening for me. You should change your settings.

Hmm holy crap, I went into IO and there are so many pages on that forum that it made the worst horizontal scroll ever

Ok I see what you're saying now.

Let me ask them about it.

Sicy, did you say there's a 'go to' box for the page numbers? Where?

The reason I do this is because I always stay logged in, and I almost always have a couple of Interference windows left open, so I can pick up where I left off reading when I come back to my computer (the thing where you're supposed to be able to 'go to unread posts' has never worked for me). This way, people don't think I'm around, or lurking 24/7 when I'm not.

Click the little arrow at the end of the page numbers.

Maybe the 'view first unread' thing will work for me now, since the forum's been upgraded.
