They're making changes again: Lucy, you got 'splainin' to do

At first I thought the site had bugs or I was obviously hallucinating again (oh NOes!) They should have a sticky up top warning us of the changes, at first I wondered what was going on. Changes are good, they keep us guessing, so good going site!

For some time before the server change and up until a couple of days ago, there was a notice up top (over everything) about the changes with a link to the right of that to the stickied topic in the Site Bugs Forum. I haven't looked today, but as late as yesterday Justin was still reading the posts, fixing resulting bugs and replying to people.

I believe Justin posted the first heads up on July 5th? ---> »Site move to new IP address soon

Well, now there is an extra click in order to get to the post editor if you want to check spelling and such. Sure, it's faster without it, so it's a trade off I guess.

But I'm not talking about the site move, but the post editor changes.

As always, when there are changes, some will like them and some will not.

Me, personally, they keep me from dozing on the job. Have to keep at least one eye open to keep my sea legs.

Site move required Justin to be present to fix bugs. Justin present fixing bugs pretty much always means fixing other stuff.

Did you read this topic? ---> »Something changed, and if it isn't a bug, I don't/do like it

It's a place to ask or comment if you wish.

Of course, it's fine to do that here, but, so far, Justin absolutely refuses to give Icky the access to change stuff. So far!

I can live with it. It's just that sometimes when coders endeavor to simplify things, it invariably means some things become more complicated. This fast post reply thing is ok, but I have to click on "more" now to check my horrible spelling. It's a trade off.

Of course, there are worse people who have 'access to change stuff'...
