          Changes:
          • Todays Post link in quick link drop down.
          • Updated smilies dropdown to 20 previews instead of 35. Should load faster.
          • Put the old smilies above the new ones in the drop down.
          • Font color on the whole forum has been changed to full black.
          • Search has been re-indexed. Hope this helps the search result issues.
          Thanks everyone for the feedback!!

              thanks for the feedback and fix. the original 104 old smileys still take time to load. any chance of speeding those up or just eliminating the new smileys that are pretty well useless

              it's amazing for a grown up tool forum to be complaining about smileys but i have an excuse, phoebe watches and helps me post now. she likes the old smileys too so much so that she ripped out my enter button and it's lost now

              thanks,

                The extra 104 smilies are about 500kb or half of a mb. The new 11 smilies are about 20kb. Deleting those will not speed up the loading time much. The only way i see to speed up the loading of 104 smilies is to deleted some of the useless ones. Rick if you have any suggestions on which ones could be deleted let me know. Also after the first time of loading the smilies, they should be cached up in your browser, which in return will load much faster the next time you click extra smilies.

                    What was the response on the search functions?
                    It appears that nothing has changed, the search is still dysfunctional.
                    As an example I searched on TC-40 and it found nothing.
                    When I searched on "now that the dust" (which I think is probably a unique phrase to this one thread) I got a bunch of hits and this thread which should have been at the top was down at about 16. doesn't seem right.

                      Re: Now that the dust has settled...

                      List of smiles that can go (as far as I am concerned).

                      I was looking through this thread and see that candidates for elimination were requested, so here's my list:

                      First off it appears that you can only access smiles from the advanced editor now is that correct?

                      I see that the oversized "this post is usless without pics" smiley no longer appears in the list so that one is already out which is fine with me.

                      For the others I think the easiest way is to just include the smiles I vote to go in this post, so that is what you see below.




                      The worthless w/o pics smiley is still there, its just that the icon was so small I couldn't recognize it. At any rate a smaller version of this smiley would be great, but this thing should go. its rarely used anyway.

                      That's my 2¢ anyway on the subject.

                      Dump all the above and you'll have about half remaining which should load much faster.

                            Had to break the list up as there is a limit of 15 per post.

                              And another thing...what happened to the "Report this Post" button?

                              Did it create too much work for someone or maybe I was the only one who used it.

                              Or maybe it's not needed any longer with the new security features.

                              If that's the case that's fine, just wondering.




                              Did I kick up enough dust for ya??? (I'd insert a smiley here but I would have to go to Advanced Mode and its not worth the trouble.)

                                The "Report This Post" is still there but it's kinda hidden. It's the little triangle icon that is to the right of the "Blog This Post" prompt.
