I will look deeper into it. There's been 3 attempts to get the thanks transferred to the like system....and it appears most of it has sadly been lost. As an example, recently member Oerthedge21 did us the favor of posting a thread, keeping us up to date on replacing the pistons and other engine work on his truck https://www.steelsoldiers.com/threads/engine-knocking-lds-456.190023/page-14#post-2247146. I thanked pretty much every post he made in that thread, as I try to do with every post of educational value that I read. Now the guy has "zero" thumbs up and "zero" trophies. Appears some of us who've made good contributions are starting at "zero". Some folks may not care if their post is appreciated or not, but I was very glad to have the opportunity to tell them that I, personally, appreciated what they'd provided, by merely hitting the thanks icon. IMO the "Thanks" system was something that put this site head and shoulders above other forums. I've always been outwardly grateful for this site, and to those who contribute to keeping it going. I understand a current standard of technology needs to be maintained, and there will always be complaints when there's change, but from this members perspective, the thumbs and trophies change absolutely sucks compared to the previous, more personal, more understandable and objective "Thanks" system.
Not sure what you mean on mark all post read button. Displays fine here. Unless perhaps you've got a very low resolution display?Howdy,
Button for "Mark all post read" is more or less a big orange blob. The center text color is to close to the button color.
Forum sections do not have a method to minimize. Looks like a little button to the far right of each forum section is just a dot. No functions.
Ok, it's going to take some time for the thanks/like thing to work out. There's a script in place now to rebuild them. But there's not a master rebuild function to make it happen all at one time. What will happen going forward is any time someone likes a post, if there previously was a thank in the thread, it will update them in the post.Thanks Patracy
A memorial page/forum would be a good addition. I'll see about adding that once the functional issues are resolved.I really thought some of the custom military icons we use to have were pretty cool, any way of having them back? Do we still have a ranking? I thought that was cool too. This was my first time back on here in a while, I was surprised to see the change. Other than that it may be nice to navigate. Do we have a memorial page?
We get it, advertisements are annoying!
