    I suggested a change log in the other thread. It would be nice to have a compilation of the changes that have been made as well as known issues or things that are being worked on. That could cut down on a lot of complaints.

    Thank you very much, but I have become a "gold" member now and that way I can edit my posts anytime I want thus no need for a modship. The "soccer history" forum is not that active anyway and what needs to be modded there is done by the "Beautiful Game" mod Comme.

    There are lots of things behind the scenes that we might know know of, and some things that Huss might see that we did not. My intention was to create a list last week, but life caught up. So I'll do so this week. A separate thread will make things cluttered, so it will be posted in the existing Bugs/Suggestions thread.

    That was a valuable list, mostly in that Huss and co acknowledged it and the list helped frame their response to the general BS community.

    I've done this, but when I go to watched forums it still shows me all forums. I thought it would show only the forums I've chosen to watch as it's name implies.

    Why does the software hide like a dozen posts and then in tiny type somewhere say, "there are more posts, click here to view them."


    I've just figured out this exists and realized I've missed out on hundreds of posts. o_O

    Do you use the little alert tab?

    I turned that off for threads. I use Watched Threads to navigate to new posts.

    It seems to be common in the alerts thing.


    Is there any way to unsub from a thread without actually going into the thread, from watch threads page?

    Click the Show Watched Threads link in the lower left corner of the Watched Thread screen. Then once you're on the new screen, click the checkboxes next to the threads you want to unwatch and then select the Stop Watching Threads option from the dropdown at the bottom of the screen.

    This is most common for me in active threads like the MLS PBP thread, in which I am constantly posting/updating. I want to see all the posts by default.

    I've stopped using the alerts thingy, at least trying to, it's so easy The problem is that on my phone the watched thread page is so hard to navigate because I can't make the newest post the first one and have to zoom in and try to click a tiny little box.

    Just click on the thread title and it should take you to the first unread post. That might change because there are others requesting that this be changed, but for now, you shouldn't have to click on the little blue dot to navigate to the first unread.

    Early last week I paid the 12 USD via paypal to upgrade my account to gold member. How long will it take until that upgrade takes place?

    The search on the main page doesn't work, but the search on the forum pages works sometimes for me.

    Unless huss confirms differently, no it is not working properly. I think it has something to do with not all the threads importing.
