Yeah, this makes me crabby too. Yesterday I was fully "aluminated" nice word that really means nothing... the real word is Illuminated. They let it slide though, cause the American language is lazy and just speaking is good enough. but I was just short of breaking 6000 points and now I have 70 something. What is up with this? the thing that makes me laugh is karma or Kharma is a real system that is maintained by our actions. It controls what or if we will ascend in our next lives. Since the playing field is being leveled, will the number of non active members to this forum also be leveled? There is no way that 25,000 members are active. Are these numbers going to be adjusted too?
Is there any chance of going back to the way it was?

Thumbs down

Can you change the Airstream classifieds page corner flipdown on the upper right corner of the page. The flashing background makes my eyes go crazy. I have to page down to move it off the screen otherwise I can't stay on the page.

I agree that thing is annoying, I keep catching it with my mouse when I go to scroll down and it flips. Guess I could avoid it with my scroll button, but you know, old habits die hard.

I also hate clear Ivory dish soap and every other honked up change that has nothing to do with product performance, if that gives you an idea of my frame of mind.

I'm as grumpy as FYRZOWT is crabby.

Submitted with all due respect, of course.

I'm with Roger - no chiclet's and give me back my rivets! I went from Rivet Master to Fully Aluminated - now I've been demoted to one little chiclet

The corner page turn was kinda neat the first two times I saw it. Now it is just plain annoying. It's too easy to catch with the mouse.

I won't even mention the cost of the therapy I'm going to need due to the negative Karma I must have received to fall all the way down to 72!

Aluminated is a a play on words - it's all about aluminum...

Karma has been rolled back proportionally and so while your number is lower, so is everyone elses.

I totally understand "leveling the playing field" by counting the number of comments instead of the weighted value. I truly don't care what the number is..my earlier post was just to show it happen to everybody and to varying degrees.

I totally agree. I have always been in the camp that karma should be kept private...and still feel the same. The only comment I do have is that if it is going to be "public", it should be consistent...the "hover comments" and the number of "chicklets" appear to have zero correlation with each other at this point. I'm sure there is a correlation of the comments to the number of karma points, but there is a disconnect with the number of "chicklets" so it really doesn't mean a thing an just causes confusion IMO. Hope it gets resolved...

As always, much appreciation is heaped on those that volunteer their time & energy to keep this community functioning...I know change is inevitable and it takes time to work out the bugs. We will all get used to the new format soon ~

I will have to agree and disagree on this one. I hated it the first time I saw it. I have been involved in web design since 1995, and to this day, the most annoying thing is animations that don't stop! They are bad enough in the first place. (See Blink element - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia, same principle)

Please take this away. The Karma adjustment I can live with, I just wish it would stabilize. I seems to change more than daily.

I do like the friends idea. I have been pleased by friend requests that I have gotten.

Overall, I think the upgrade will be something everyone will like when things settle down.

I am sad. The long-touted upgrade did not bring back the random pictures at the top of the portal page, as promised. I would really, really like them back.

I am with Vaughan and the others on the corner page thing. I have also been involved with Web design since 1995 and that is also the one thing that annoys me above all else. Stop the madness!!!

Thank you for working so hard to make this a great experience for all of us!

Susan

First I want to thank the admin and mods for all of the hard work. Software upgrades are always tough. And even moreso for a community this size. You can't please all the people all the time...

Anyway, I don't know if this one has been reported, but using Mozilla Firefox and the Search feature, both the Advanced Photo Search link and the Advanced Forum search link actually end up taking me to the Advanced Photo Search.

I tried a bit later with IE and it worked fine.

Thanks again guys!

My thanks too. Good catch on the Firefox issue. I hadn't tried it yet. I have used Safari on both Windows and Mac and search if behaving properly in it.

Hi,
Is the search supposed to be improved? I just tried "reese hitch" with & without the quotes and got about 5000 hits on the word 'hitch' primarily. Are we still dealing with one word searches?
