Each time I try, it shows me a page where I need to verify not being a robot, and then it still doesn't post anything.
Is that the only way to reply? To hit the quote button ?

No, there is a quick reply at the bottom of most sections and also a POST REPLY button, unless the forum is locked.

You were supposed to post twice in the introduce yourself forum, as it states in multiple places, very obviously in plain sight. After which those two posts have to be approved. Then you are a registered user and should no longer have to wait for approval to post anywhere.

I don't think there is a problem. Most of the times threads can be inactive due to youtubers being boring.

Unfortunately that was just a side-effect of upgrading to the new forum software that couldn't be prevented. :(

Morgan, have you gotten any reports about the "Unread posts" button on a thread? I've clicked it a few times today and it always takes me to the same read post even though there are newer, unread posts underneath. I'm sure you're working out some glitches and kinks so no biggie but just letting you know in case!

Sorry if this has been mentioned before, but I have a message sitting in my outbox for over a month. I feel bad because I was replying to someone (she asked me a question) and I wonder if she thinks I ignored her. This is the second time this has happened. What causes some messages to go through vs not? I’ve had other messages come through after hers and those went through fine.

I may be wrong but it could just be this person hasn't seen your response yet or hasn't been on here for a while (just going by what I've noticed with messages sitting in my Outbox).

Did we lose the "View My Posts" option? That was always the easiest way to navigate the boards. I could click on View My Posts and then click on Unread Posts on them, and it was so much easier than switching between people.

It's under Quick Links on the top left corner. I did prefer the View my Posts though :)

What happened to the front page? The one with "recent topics" and "popular topics"? I found most of my beloved threads there and miss that!

the portal is gone, it is no longer an extension for phpBB ... I'll keep looking to see if we can bring that back or something like it...although the quick links contains new posts (aka recent topics) and active topics (aka popular topics), so maybe that's the best way for now to get something like what you got before with the portal page.

i think i might be able to assist with that.
if this is what i think, it has happened to me before.
the issue is that the posts you had already read weren't marked as read and when you get back to it, it shows you all those posts.
it's only happened to me when only reading and i didn't make a post.
if you go to "your posts" under "quick links", or to your subs/bookmarks, if it still shows the thread as unread, reopening the thread should fix it.
you could also always refresh a page after you're done reading and it should clear unread posts.
idk if it's some server issue where maybe opening and closing a tab too fast or opening several all at once might cause it to not register properly, that's an aspect of tech i'm not familiar with, morgan would probably know about those things better than me.
but if it is what i'm thinking, the solution is pretty simply. just ensure after you've read a thread that the posts are actually marked as read

I'm not entirely sure, that could be related to cache needing to be cleared. Also I'm wondering if it's supposed to mark the whole page as read once you've loaded it, but I've been able to click the view new posts icon and it takes me to an appropriate place in the forum. Hmm.. also I'm not sure if viewing it from quick links gives it a "read" status .... so I just tested and it appears to be working properly for me...
