I post topics a bunch and have never gotten that notice (but haven't done one since the update).

What's weird is the thread ("Op-ediots") appeared. Did anyone approve it? I had only see it happen on Tapatalk if that matters.

I didn't approve it, though of course I would have.

Sandy in general I think you did a fine job with the update. My only complaint is that my least favorite aspect of grylliade--people adding a line after a quote--seems to be the default now. As such I have little recourse but to burn down grylliade and salt the internet so that nothing grows in its place.

All praise is due to the fine folks at phpBB.

And do you mean a blank line?

So, on further reflection, taking into consideration my advanced years and all, I can still find no substantive improvement in the operation of the forum. Security issues, I get; being able to post Tweets is, um, well, that is, whothefuckcares!

What I'd really like to be able to do, however, is block entire threads. Maybe that's possible, but I've yet, given my advanced years and all, figured out how to do it. Not that every topic isn't equally fascinating and worthy of reading and commenting upon, of course, but, um, well, that is, let's just say I nonetheless have zero interest in them. Can this be done? How? If not, why not?

There's an input device for your computer called a mouse (alternatively, you may be using a trackpad, trackball or touchscreen). It will move a cursor around on your screen. When it comes to a thread you are not interested in, rather than clicking the button to enter said discussion, continue to move the input device until it reaches a topic you are interested in. Click there. Viola.

I miss the Next Page and Previous Page links that used to be below the last post on a page (and also before the first post on the page, if I remember correctly). I am much less likely to notice that it's not on the last page of a thread now.

The thing where when you click a link to a new post and the page loads in such a way that the post you're looking for is somewhere else is increasingly annoying.

I think it has to do with the loading of images, more of which are included by default now. At some point I'll clean up and see if there's anything I can do to make that optional.

Did a setting get changed on the 'remember me' timeout? I'm having to input my password a lot more often now.

It's the pettiest of complaints, but it's disconcerting and slightly inconvenient.

Have you made any changes to your list of "remember me" login keys on the profile tab of the user control panel?

I just recently deleted all of mine, which took a bit of time, because even when I clicked select all, then delete all marked, the system wouldn't simply delete all of them. I had to individually select them in batches of a few hundred, then delete.

In any case, possibly try deleting the login keys down to the most recent?
