OK Photobucket works. I guess Flickr does't like SG.org.
I have IE8 at work and it regularly crashes when I try to look at this site (but not always, strangely). The error message says something about a script that causes IE8 to run slow. Next I get the prompt to stop running this script, but by then the browser's already unresponsive. Just thought I'd let you know. Otherwise all works well on Chrome at home, looks good and is much nicer without the heart.
It's become very very very slow on the antiquated ie I use at work and can't update. Works well on Chrome.
Don't use Internet explorer
I don't where I have any choice.

I get the same and it is very slow to type text into. This at work on alocked down citrix set up
Still nearly 50% users are using IE see http://arstechnica.com/microsoft/news/2011/11/the-end-of-an-era-internet-explorer-drops-below-50-percent-of-web-usage.ars
It really isn't our fault that IE is a piece of shit.
I just tested it on IE7, 8 & 9. Looked a bit crappier in earlier versions but worked absolutely fine. I'd suggest its something more to do with specific setups than IE per se. Works fine on Safari, Mozilla, Chrome and mobile phones but give Andy a call and he'll come to your office and see what he can do. I'm sure its stated in the sg.org SLA somewhere.
Ok, thanks David. I knew it would get picked up in the right spirit. I wasn't aware there was an SLA for this site!
Script issue when using IE seems to have been fixed Thanks my browser no longer hangs
Strange it seem to have come back when I did the post above !!
andy, do the announcements-are-the-new-stickies still have to go through you? i can't find an option to do it myself for the book group thread.p.s. the site looks wonderful, thanks
yep i will do it.
This could just be my monitor, but is anyone else finding that once a thread has split into more than one page, it's not immediately obvious from the numbers at the bottom which page you're on?
Yup, same here.
Help. Please tell me in one short sentence and words of one syllable how to open a thread. I tried clicking on the star but it does not work for me. I just have a simple laptop.
There is a green button at the top right that says 'Start a New Discussion'. You can click on it. 'Button' and 'discussion' exceeded the syllable limit, I still hope this helps.
Marquis. Thank you.
Haven't visited the site for a few months. I used to get a weekly update by email so I looked at it then but I don't get those any more. Will have a look at all the new features later, but just for now does it do that Facebook thing (and - shock horror - HOL thing!) of notifying you when someone posts onto a thread that you've used. I might find it irritating - I'm not sure, but without it I don't check the threads I've been on often enough so I miss it when people answer me.
I'm same as rona, used to get weekly update emails but don't any more. I can't find my 'preferences' to hange this.
Help anyone?! I miss the emails...
I don't like that it tells me to go to bed like I've been a naughty girl. I get home from work after midnight 2-3 days a week. I know it was changed to keep the rambling pissheads at bay, but some of us work shifts. I'm often too busy to use it during the day, unless it's my day off.
I like that it tells us to go to bed. It's quite comforting in a stern sort of way, it's the way I imagine one would be spoken to at boarding school.
Remember that scene from Jurassic Park when they fail to crack into Nedry's computer? The little finger-wagging image of Nedry going 'na-a-ah, you didn't say the magic word'?It's like that. Only with Andy's face.
Yes, it's just like that!
Andy - or someone - would you be able to answer about the weekly emails? Don't you send them any more? Also does this new site have a facility for notifying you when someone posts on a thread that you've posted on (like Facebook?). Cheers
If you go into your account details then Preferences (on the left), you can select which email notifications you'd like to receive.
@Rona - sorry the weekly emails don't get sent anymore. They were generated by a custom piece of code that isn't compatible with the new setup. We've look at a couple of alternatives, but haven't found anything we like yet.
@harpistic - thanks very much. I've done that now - useful!
