Did I miss something, an announcement or such?

Formerly when I was signed in my name appeared in the upper left (round about the header/banner of TPW.) Now nothing, no way to identify quickly that I'm signed in.

Also when I addressed this post to you (@johnmorris) I got a drop down that gave a partial list of "john" w/o the ability to scroll down & find you.!?!?

Did I fall asleep & wake up late to the game?

 

Also the upper right of the banner has changed & when I scroll down to the bottom of the page I don't get a listing of the forums.

Confused--as usual.

Smitty, if you could please shoot us a screen shot of what your seeing as far your missing name, that is indeed perplexing.

 

As far as @johnmorris you won't find anything, but you will with @John Morris.

 

The bottom was eliminated for now due to resource limitations, seem that lower page area where all the forums were listed and recent topics and forum hosts etc, was gobbling up memory, as a result of hiding it for now, the website is much faster while browsing, you may have notices perhaps.

 

Everything is full speed ahead as far as our community, what I am concerned with most is you are not seeing your account at the upper left corner, a screen shot would be great. Thanks @smitty10101!

@smitty10101, also I addressed one of your concerns at this topic you posted

 

I agree with your observation that the drop down link for Forums was confusing, and I made it just "Forums" with no drop down, I think it's a step in the right direction.

The items that were in the "Forums" dropdown are now in the "Browse" drop down along with a few other items such as "Gallery", to consolidate the nav bar for smaller screens as many of our items were ending up in the "More" nav. I don't like the "More" nav.

 

Hope this helps a little.

"@John" gives a drop down with 7(?) names & no way to continue down.

If you know the name of the member that you sending the message to then you just continue to type---but if you don't then you're screwed (frustrated)

 

 

On a side note ---on the left there is (for me) members & underneath a plus sign (+) & the # 155-- members reputation. The question is how does one 

a) either increase that # or

b) give a reputation to another member?

 

As you can tell I'm really a genius with computers & software---yeah right.

Your doing fine Smitty, we are all in this together sir.

Stick made some great suggestions above.

Ok got the suggestions from Stick.

As I understood, previously, that the heart was a "like" button---as in I liked the content of that particular message/reply that I was liking.

To me the is a huge difference between a reputation & a like---probably a holdover from the business world.

 

Also still don't fully grasp the loss of the acknowledgement of being signed in, only because it avoids trying to do a message and then find out that you need to sign in. BUT--- I do like the fact that you can readily see what forum you're looking at.

 

I'll be exploring the upper right of the toolbar in time. It takes me a while to warm up to change. I'm a great fan of the status quo, especially with software.

 

As I'm typing this there is a small red dot to the lower right of the message window that changes #s and/or pinwheels. When you hover on it you get various options. Is this just me??? b/c it appears to be related to "GRAMMARLY" the spell check that I use. Or did TPW also start using Grammarly?

Who We Are

Operation Ward 57 Challenge Coin Display Project

We are a woodworking community with an emphasis on sharing and learning the skilled craft of woodworking and all of its related disciplines. Our community is open to everyone who wishes to join us. We support our American veterans and active duty, being a veteran is not a prerequisite to join. Join us now!

Objective

Air Force Command Center Plaque

Of course just like most online woodworking communities we are centralized in the arts, crafts, and trades that are woodworking. But, we have another focus in our Patriot Woodworker community, we are the only woodworking community that was founded on our care and concern for our disabled veterans.

Volunteer

Patriot Woodworker Volunteers

The Patriot Woodworkers are an all volunteer community, from the staff and hosts who run our online woodworking community to the members who frequent our forums, you'll find volunteers in all of us. We are not on a payroll, unless you consider the spiritual rewards gained from volunteering, as compensation.

Education

Logging

One of the many projects we are working on is a wiki for our online community. A wiki is a great way for woodworkers and enthusiasts to share their knowledge to others, and to impart their knowledge for others to learn from, and utilize as well for their own benefit. We hope you'll consider being a wiki contributor.
