    Re: Changes to forums and comments

    Folks, most of the items you've listed are not errors or mistakes or bugs ... they are features that we could not replicate from the previous software before launch because of the deadline we were given. They all will be restored as we work through our list of outstanding items. They include:  

    > Edit your post  
    > Gold stars to jump to your last unread post  
    > Ignore a user  
    > Add an image  
    > Colored fonts  
    > Change your avatar  
    > Add a signature  
    Etc.  

    There are bugs, which are to be expected with a project as massive as this one: We imported more than half a million user accounts (along with all the associated avatars, userIDs, member since and last post dates), more than 3 million forum posts, and who knows how many millions of article comments. And we had to make that data, all originated in another company's software, fit and work into the platform we were building.  

    We have a list of all of the bugs, including those you noted, and our devs are working through them now. We know that the bad words filters is malfunctioning (related to the "S" issue). We know that when you type in this comment box and use return at the end, your cursor disappears off the box. We know that some of the WYSIWYG tools at the bottom of the comment box aren't working. And we know that many of you keep getting logged out between browser sessions.  

    I apologize for the annoyances, but believe me, several developers are on this full-time. These items all will get restored, and the bugs fixed.

    Re: Changes to forums and comments

    Seriously,every other fan discussion board is geared toward the actual fans, focussing on the enrichment of the fan experience and not fiixated on any little blurb that may be possibly somehow in some obtruse way offensive to the prudish extremism sect. BDC over seers ,just for laughs try to post some of the intentfully sophmoric baiting with the sole intent of adjitating fans that are in your locale and are a valid revenue demographic. Like I suggested for purely ambient function try posting the inanely vitrolistic diatribes that have infested these discussion boards unlike any other forum offered to the demanding that. Stop being enablers for juvenile posters of nefarious intent.

    When you go to the Celtics from the main page and you click on discussions it would be nice if you would go to the Celtics forum instead of having to scroll through several discussions to get to it.

    Re: Changes to forums and comments

    The last couple of years the moderators of the Celtics has been so lax it has become impossible to actually have an actual discussion with other Celtic fans due to the extreme amount of juvenille posters that come only badger and harass Celtic fans. If one tried to pull these antics on,let's say, an LA Times boards the post would be removed and the poster would not be able to repost. It has ruined these boards!!! At the very least please bring back the ignore option.

    Some posters are a lot more interested in what I have to say than I am about  what they have to say.

    That mismatch creates problems that IGNORE only partially solves.

    But heck.. a partial solution beats no solution  in our less-than-perfect cyber-community.

    Going to wait until the ignore function is ready before I visit again.  Went into the Darko thread and I swear there are more Lakers trolls in there than Celtics fans.  This place is worse than grade school, where there's at least a teacher to keep things in check.

    Hi everybody,


    As you can see, we've launched new discussion forums, article comments, and personal profiles on the site. We've always relied on software from other companies to power our user tools.  But during the past few months, we've built our own – we think this will give us more flexibility and control over these features.


    Here in the forums, we had to delay the implementation of some of the features that you like: The gold star that brings you to the first unread comment, Ignore this user, spell check, add an image, and some others. We have a working list of items to restore in the coming days and weeks.


    There’s a fuller explainer here: http://www.boston.com/community/note_to_bostoncom_users/


    Please leave a comment here about any features that are missing that I didn't mention in the note linked above, or if you're having any technical issues.


    Thanks.

    How do I search for old topics? Where is the search bar for the forums?

    P.S.- I am not pleased the by the bi-annual extremely annoying changes you guys keep making.

    We need expediencey. We want direct links to Celtics forum from the Celtics page.

    We want to find topics from a month or so ago.

    We want "like" buttons. We want "ignore" buttons. We want "dislike" buttons.

    We want unread posts highlighted.

    I know it's a lot. But your World Class, right?

    Re: Changes to forums and comments

    I would like to respectfully ask for answers to the following two questions: Why are obvious trolls allowed to keep posting here?  Why are profanity and personal attacks allowed when they are supposed to be against the rules?

    I've stopped posting on this board and come here much less often simply because trolls are allowed to run rampant.  Putting them on ignore is not a solution because someone will reply to the troll and the troll's posts appear along with the replies. 

    A handful of trolls can make reading a board so tedious that it isn't worth it.
