At this point I have to be honest and say its very difficult to use the new Forum that Winepress has installed. First - it doesn't work well with IE 6.0, which I know is ancient. I can't post replies unless I don't mind typing without being able to see what I type. I also am a web designer and I think the old interface was much more user friendly and I can't find out how to view "new posts" like this and most forums.
is there a reason you won't upgrade from IE6 to something that is at least still supported by M$? i don't like these new cars because they don't run right on leaded gasoline!!
view new posts is in the top right, under your profile, next to the orange RSS icon, it says "view new content"
if you really are a web designer, professionally, then you should know all about web 2.0, the pending death of flash, and the faults and deficiencies of IE6... IE8 is barely better, but it is at least mostly compliant with current web standards.
i still don't get the passive aggressive needling and competition that goes on over here. i don't see anyone at winepress.us bad-mouthing this forum???
Rawlus...with all due respect...and you and i don't know each other..so there is zero reason for pre-meditated animus between is and there is O ....but i can vouch for something....certain posts and threads over there get deleted to make certain people look like they never in their life had a pimple on their face ...so what you are not seeing leaves you w a certain impression...and i dont really want to go into what i have seen...and as far as i am concerned...all the good they do outweighs the stupid stuff
and fair ALSO to DECLARE..that winepress has GREAT members...GREAT information.....has from what i can see a longer history and because it is trying to be run like a business it gains due credibility...due audience...and due participation
i do like the old setup they had better....and i do like that their categories are more broken down
i come here and another forum (finevineswines.com) for one reason....
since i can get all the winepress info at other places on the web if i really need to....i come here because its friendly and i know ahead of time that there is not an ego here that i will needlessly run heads against..i just know that ahead of time...and that is hugely important to me..i wantto learn and share...not deal w silly stuff w someone on the other end of the compter who had a rough day and decided they needed to over pick at someones post
suffice itto say.....there is plenty of room for everyone...i just wanted to say, that because you dont see anything published that is accessible to you as a reader does not mean it does not exist or never happenned
I am at work - yes - most of us are on XP and MS office 2003. We can't upgrade at all here.
Ok I agree I'm picky and I like the old interface. We don't all have to agree on websites. Before the changes to that site I spent most of my time there and was actually going through somewhat of a withdrawal when it went down for a few weeks/months. My second choice is this site. I think for the most part people mean well and are friendly. I see now how to get the recent posts. That helps. I still can't enter a post unless I type blind.
Please, no bashing on this forum! I too like the old Winepress better. Its a big forum and finding a post on that site is very hard and now to me is even harder. There is a lot of good info on that forum but like others when i ake a post I expect some criticism by 1 or 2 members but dont expect someone to tell me Im wrong. there are many roads you can take to get to the intersection and Ive been doing this long enough to know what Im doing. I still have stuff to learn and that will be forever cause theres always room to learn even though some think they know it all.
I also like the old wine press better then the new one. Two weeks ago I made a post at Wine Press where I respectfully asked a member about something they posted. Three hours later my post was deleted and I have no idea why but I was honestly looking for an answer. As I posted earlier it is a good forum with good people. Every forum has its own personality. Again I feel we have the best forum and members right here.
I have only deleted 2 threads on this forum and not proud of it, One was because I didnt want people seeing us squabble over some signature lenghts and another wasnt bad but I really felt it was too immature and felt that it was embassing me to run a forum that talks about something so tiny. I hope I never have to do that again!
