    Changes to forums and article comments

    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.

    What is a "fuller explainer" ?? Did I miss something when I was in school?

    Some new forum observations from my end.

    1.  The Quote function rarely works properly.

    2.  Apostrophes are apparently banned words.  (And I am referring to the punctuation mark here.  If I use one, it sometimes wont let me post.)

    3.  Slower, hangs up a lot.  (Not a surprise for a new forum)

    4.  Numerous avatars are missing. (Eh.)

    5.  Far too senstive to cursor placement when I try to start typing.  Sometimes it just won't go to the end of a sentence when I mouse click there like most cursors do.

    6.  Frequently logs me off, which is especially bad because this website rarely allows me to log back on without resetting my password.


    On the bright side, I like the expanded post history.

    please bring back the search  posts function, edit funtion, and spell check.
    thank you

    also dottie,
      when you reply to somone's post, it includes the post, but not the name of the person who you are responding to. this needs to be corrected.

    thanks again.

    Thanks for putting the page numbers back at the bottom of the page.

    I'm sure there will be a way to get us from Sox. direct to Discussion forums, without all Globe dept.s in time.

    I hope we get the "edit post" tab back.

    I am not good at getting things right the first time. I almost always have misspellings and errors that need to be edited.

    Can we have a "slap poster" button where a hand comes out of the computer and slaps someone when they say something really dumb? It could be a little 3 Stooges icon with Moe slapping Curly ...just a little joke...
