    How do you change the quote format in order for it to be normal? I've tried moving the forward slash around and haven't been able to find something that works.

    It would be nice to resolve the problem of getting to the RS Forum Discuss site. I'm sure the Globe wants people to see something other than sports but they wouldn't hit discussion unless they wanted discussion.

     

    Time will tell.

    The main problem to me is that one needs to copy and paste whose comment that you are responding to in order to have a dialog. Don't use the reply button to do this. The old software handled this correctly. The absence of spellcheck, delete, and edit aren't that important to me.



    FJ, why don't you like using the Reply button?

    Quotes go on and on with a continuing chain of responses unless you delete some of them.  Your response shows every previous response others made to the original post. It would be nice if  that when you respond to a post, only the post that you are directly responding to shows up in your post, like it used to be. Don't be so formal Dottie, you can call FJ Pike.

    Dottie...

    I could be reasonably happy with the way things are now, *IF I HAD A WAY TO GO TO THE LAST READ POST!*

    Did the Red Sox get any better because of the new forum

    The Quoting system looks funny for me.

    Yes the "quoting" is ugly. Otherwise, and maybe it is because I am not posting a lot, things seem to be better  = )

    Of course ridding the forum of the "plagiarizer" was a sweet plus!

    By the way, and forgive me if this has been addressed, but is there no way to change your avatar anymore? I've been away a while.

    The "reply" systems is horrible with all the "quotes" everywhere.  To me it is the worst part of the new sysytem.

    snake, I want to add that the slow refreshing, the inability to get to the Sox Front Burner without going through 9 links, the miserable fonts just make this far worse than the previous forum. In fact, I could never understand why the change. The last forum was terrific, fast posting, easy to read, easy to find, lots of traffic. I've posted less than 100 posts since the change because frankly I can't understand half the posts with the quotes and the replies. I'm not trying to be mean or anti-forum, I love the Globe forum and enjoy bantering with all my Sox fan friends here. It's just way too difficult to post and exchange ideas.

    Agree with it all. Put this back on the front page.

    Charge us to read our own comments and you will have no readers!

    Why is this the first item on the front burner all the time? Stop trying to control everything and everyone like Obama.

    Is anyone else having problems accessing this site using IE 8? I can access it only using other browsers. I called BDC to get a clarification..no response yet.
