lol lost my head again!Something I failed to mention last night: BOOKMARKS!
If you make a helpful post that you want to share with people often, or if you're in the middle of a long page of replies and can't get through them, you can now bookmark a post to easily come back to! Your bookmarks are listed if you click your avatar at the top right, where you'd fine your user settings and profile info.

And another helpful note: AVATARS
Avatars are now all perfectly square, so many of you probably need to go into your account settings (again at the top right) and re-crop your current avatar or upload a new one that is square. As it is right now, there are some people missing heads and whatnot because the forum auto-cropped you into a square with the update.
example: our friend @Miss_Behayvin here is missing a forehead now, oops!

Let me know if y'all have any other issues or questions!
Alerted in what way? Like you had notifications set up as a "watched thread" or you go to the "new posts" page and think there's less? More info please!Maybe it's just me. But, I seem to not get alerted to as many threads as I did on the old forum. I still get some alerts. But, it's like many threads never show in the alert even though under "New posts" they're fairly recent.
I have to refresh the page to see if I have any alerts, before they just showed up without me having to do anything.Alerted in what way? Like you had notifications set up as a "watched thread" or you go to the "new posts" page and think there's less? More info please!
Ok, I can see that being the case. Not sure if that’s an issue on this theme or just on the new software altogether.
Yes it does seem that the alert bell doesn't show notifications quite as instantaneously as the old forum did. And doesn't update if the page is left inactive for a short period of time. I will sometimes click to see "what's new" and see my subscribed threads with new replies there, but no notification had popped up for it yet. Or if I refresh or move on from any given page by clicking to another, a "new" (but not necessarily current, as it will be from a post that occurred a period of time ago) alert will show up. I'm okay with notifications not working quite so instantly though haha. I guess what I am trying to say is that the alerts only seem to appear in a timely manner assuming that you remain active on the page without pause.
But, if I click on the bell when it tells me I have four notifications, then look at the "New posts" I will see more threads that I've been active in.
woops meant to tag y'all @DJ_Pioneer @ForceTen @THE MOLLIE MARIEAnd since we've been looking into stuff this morning, we found an add-on to get more realtime alerts! It can take up to 30 seconds now, but you'll see the alert badges without having to reload now.
Also, in Conversations (PM), there's now a "live update" feature where new replies will appear within 30 seconds without having to reload (assuming you're still viewing the message). The new replies will still show up as unread on your little envelope at the top of the page in case you closed the page without noticing the new reply just as a safety measure.
The alerts preview is now limited to 4 entries, and there's a "show all" at the bottom of the popup window in order to view the remaining un-cleared alerts as well as previously cleared ones. (It'll take you to a new full page of all alerts). So maybe you were assuming there were only 4 alerts altogether, but if you had clicked the "show all" you'd have seen the others.
Ok, just thought it sounded like you relied on "watched threads" more heavily based on your posts.
Alerts should be utilized for people quoting, replying directly to your post, or adding a like rating (if you have those enabled.)I'll figure out a method to my madness...
