Issues for BDC

    Re: Issues for BDC

    From MY vantage point - and I'm using Chrome as my browser so your results may vary - the board now provides most of the same "services" it did before the <ahem> upgrade, but with one improvement.  We can now send and receive PM's.  A welcome change.


    At this point what's working seems to be working well but we still have some issues that should be resolved:


    We still don't have the stars - or a link to 'last post read' - back for each thread, and...


    We're still seeing blank lines inserted in certain poster's posts, most especially when those posters reply to another post.  


    Are these things still on the checklist?  Is there any kind of a timetable for getting these changes made?


    (I'm not requesting much.  Just a simple "yes" or "no" will suffice, but a bit more would be appreciated too.  :-) )


    Having the right to do something doesn't make it the right thing to do.

    MOD 1 or 2 can you please clarify if in fact Bill & DAD are working with BDC? I don't think someone should be pretending to me a mod.

    One thing I am 100% sure of .....jackbu/steven11 is not a moderator.  I'd would have been zapped almost immediately.

    As a software developer, it is pretty clear to tell what the issue is with the white space. The piece of code parsing the post is adding a extra line break after each line break. So every post and reply adds a line break after the authors. It gets huge after a couple replies. Just remove that and it will fix all the white space.


    [/QUOTE]

    Would you offer you services on a consulting basis to BDC...HA!   Why are we able to post in a selection of font sizes but where the post appears the typeface is minute. I have a tough time squinting reading it and my iMAC zoom can not enlarge it.

    I type the post first, highlight it, then pick the font size, and it saves it when you hit add your post

    I am testing your recommendation and, if it works for me, thank you !!!


    It did work...oorah but not every poster is going to want to highlight it and select a font size unfortunately.  Still would be nice if Globe Geeks would make it easier.

    The White Space issue really needs to be fixed.  It's ridiculous.  Just now I was almost blinded by the last post on craze4sox's thread.

    A fix might be on the way HFX. Look at the mod thread and the last comment made by Mod2.

    I'm glad to see the box scores and standings have a prominent place on the front of the Sox page, on the right-hand column. It would be better if they were raised right to the top of the column, but it appears likely that the big space above them is reserved for advertising.  

     

    I had stopped using BDC for my morning Sox news due to the difficulty locating the box score and the standings (it's really the sin qua non of the front page for a baseball team). I'll come back now.

    I'm HOPING (and this is a SUGGESTION, BDC) that at some point a space on the front page is reserved for the current day's game. Something like:

    5/16/14  Today's game:  Detroit (Scherzer, 5-1, 2.04 ERA) @ Boston (Lester, 4-4, 2.75 ERA).  Game time 7:05 pm.

    Just the facts, ma'am.

     Hmmm.. and one hour later, THERE IT IS!  

    I won't rule out the possibility it was there before and I hadn't seen it, but at any rate, thanks BDC!

    Suggestion

    Bring in 10 users of the site and have them sit with the system, the mods and the people who built the system and let them show you what needs to be done. IMHO the site is very user unfriendly

    LOVE my  Red Sox, Bs, Cs, Pats and enjoy the ride every year.

    Jim: I am thinking that this site is not a cash cow for the owner and operator.  It is actually user friendly and most likely one of the few remaining of its kind.

    Switching the latest site problems issue to this thread (instead of the moderator thread).

    i normally use Firefox at work.  the past couple of days (including now) the following occurs:

    • only half the time the site will load up.  the other half it says my backend is unhealthy
    • when the site does load up i am able to click on threads and read them
    • when i go into a thread the <br> issue is in the reply box and wont allow me to post
    • when i go into a thread my avatar icon on the top right of the page switches from my smexxxy sox girl pic to blank white and can no longer click on it to go to profile or member center
    • i am currently on the site via IE and it seems i can post

     

    other names i have posted under:  none
