...The previous (convoluted) way of linking to other posts in the forum will now not work.
I keep getting this message when trying to post.The following error or errors occurred while posting this message: Error - you have used a blacklisted term Suddenly, apostrophes are not allowed?Seems too silly to be a new policy so must be some kind of bug in the system I guess.
4: When opening a 'new topic' and posting new topic, I get a white screen. I have to 'go back', (phone function) and use 'home' function to get back to the relevant topic's board and click on thread to see the 'new topic' I have posted.
Sometimes when I sign in, the server returns a hard "Forbidden error" (403) message...
Chris has put huge effort into restructuring the site which should cure the problems we've been seeing.Please let us know if you see any issues.Big thanks to Chris
Can't post without quoting a post at mo...quick posts isn't functioning.A thread of mine named 'an alternative perspective on space expansion...?' on New Theories has disappeared completely, and it's not possible to post a New Topic at mo...I liked the layout and colours of the intermediary site better btw. It was nice to see who and how many people were viewing a particular thread.
The actions dropdown is disappearing at the bottom of the post.

Why is there a policy change about who can follow the links given in a discussion?seems to me as a short sighted idea, increasing the number of participants short time, while limiting the reading pleasure for people just wanting to browse the site? Meaning that I don't expect new readers to subscribe by locking the links we give.

It seems to be putting up a lot of little blue boxes that tell me "so and so has replied to your post"- which is true- but the replies are ancient.After a while they go away again; as if it's noticed...

When posting a couple of wiki links with text written in between them, when I'm logged in I can see the 3 paragraphs of my text between the wiki links, but when I'm logged out I can't, which renders the post as unintelligible.I've deleted the second wiki link to rectify this anomaly, but it is your 'you have to be registered to see links' that would seem to be also obscuring the view of the text written between in addition to the links.
I noticed that the forum is continuously transferring data from external websites I don't visit. This happens when adblockplus is disabled in Firefox. Any ideas what's going on?
... You can insert the images into your posts (rather than just attaching them) if you click on the "insert attachment"; then the picture is displayed in all its glory in your post. I've edited the ones above to do this for you.
Apparently I am not alone in being unable to insert an uploaded image into a post ... Quote from: chris on 05/09/2017 09:17:00...

I've edited the ones above to do this for you.For me "insert images into posts" has never worked in the new forum. I can upload an image, so it's attached to a post, but clicking on "Insert Attachment" does nothing.
A convention used on many forums to make it clear to whom one is replying is to use the "at" symbol in front of their user name. However, when I attempted to do so here I discovered it was a blacklisted 'word'. Why? I presume it is to exclude email addresses from posts, but there must be a better way to do that. No?
It's about revenues right? And connecting everything someone write to everything else. What it makes for is the slowest site I visit on the net. If you really want people coming here it at least should update fast, and I don't **** care about doing internet on a phone. A pretty stupid idea in my view fitting only those that feel that constant need to be 'connected' and overachieve.As I see it, this site is getting slower and slower, and more and more incomprehensible for the casual viewer.=alsoChris, you, or whatever defines the role here, should define the new direction of TNS. And if you believe yourself, aka TNS, to have the competence also the credentials of your chosen ones. In that way you will become a conservative force for the good of 'everyone' curious, depending on credentials. I think us old posters should have the benefit of understanding your 'new vision' of TNS future. Because this site is not what I signed up to, once.
... 5) Click "Insert attachment" - You should see "attachment=0" appear within [ ] in your post in the cursor location ...
