RSS feeds seem to be broken. Only getting news from 2001...
This is my signature. There are many like it, but this one is mine. My signature is my best friend. It is my life. I must master it as I must master my life. My signature, without me, is useless. Without my signature, I am useless.

What's with all that Web 2.0 crap? Facebook, Twitter, etc. That feels kinda unprofessional. It feels like "we added everything which wasn't on a tree in three seconds".

That seems a bit inconsistent. It's unprofessional because it's web 2.0? Or because it's similar to FaceBook? Neither of those are unprofessional, or uncomplimentary things to say about GD.

I don't really understand why people are so bothered by the social networking icons - they are not exactly intrusive and it's probably quite nice for some people to be able to share to Facebook - none of my FB friends are computer types so they'd just find it weird if I did but I'm sure not everyone is the same.

I'd personally far rather see member reputation under their Group, rather than number of posts and date they joined - far more useful information to me. I'm in the camp of wanting down-rates back but I don't think this is going to happen and it isn't worth worrying about.

(Unless anyone wants to join me in a movement to create our own system via the signatures? We just add our reputations to our signatures with rate up and down links that email us and all promise to be super-honest about it. What could go wrong? :))

I'm loving the new journal (journal, damnit, not blog) features and think journals look a lot more professional now and are far easier to use. It's great that these are now free as I'm sure it will lead to far, far more interesting content than dross.

I didn't like the WYSIWYG editor so big deal - I disabled it. The new tags are far easier to use than the old weird mix of tags and HTML that we had in the old site. Multiquote is great as well.

I was going to moan about the lack of links in posts to journals, showcase etc like we had but then just created a signature instead. Sorted.

RSS feeds are a known issue.

Member rep will be included in post information.

I can access your gallery images and journal via the buttons under your avatar.

Again, everyone remember that it hasn't even been a week yet, we're still load balancing the servers, and there's a lot of work yet to be done. Looks like the servers are running pretty well right now...

Posting history feature has gone? (I mean when all the posts can be seen not just a few)

It exists, but it's currently bugged. Go to your profile and hit the "Find My Content" button underneath your photo.

As SiCrane said, this is currently buggy and it is taking a very long time for new posts in threads to start appearing in your content.

Gaiiden is aware of this issue and it will resolve once the site settles down.

About 10 years in my case. The most recent post it's showing for me is from 2001.

That seems to be a whole 'nuther issue affecting old accounts. Mine does it too, but people from more recent years (I haven't discovered how far back) seem to be okay, if a bit delayed.

The good news is that, unless I missed something overnight, Mike has informed us that the DB server has logged around 40 hours uptime so far. We may be able to start increasing load soon.

Found a few bugs in articles.

1. The comment section isn't displaying comments for me. It's showing that there are comments there, but says "No Comments to Display."

2. This might be article specific, but all the code snippets are broken and look horrendously ugly.

Don't feel bad about reporting known issues though, better safe than sorry right?

Any chance we can get automagic draft saving or something on journal entries?

I've lost two long posts now because IE decided the tab had crashed and I've no desire to re-write the one I was working on...

Just in case you haven't seen it yet, new journal update regarding site development. Highly recommend everyone read to be up to date with all that's going on.

Journals should post by publish time, not draft-saved time, methinks. Otherwise newly published posts get buried. Unless I'm misunderstanding the system. It's not so bad, though, since there's always cut-n-paste.

Actually most people haven't realized yet that you can change the post time of your journal entry similar to other blogs like Wordpress. When you edit, click on the "Publish Immediately (Change)" link to set a new date and time. So yes, you can schedule posts.

But yea, the draft time posting issue has been noted in our Suggestions area of the Issues Tracker. I agree it would make sense to set the date/time to when the entry is actually published
