Just popping in here to say that on the iPhone 6S both tapatalk and the SoSH app are super slow to refresh. In the participated category, both apps removed the majority of the threads I've posted in.

Otherwise, it's amaze balls.

I don't think it is strictly an app issue...the new board doesn't appear to acknowledge any participation in threads if the participation happened on the old board. In a browser, participated threads are marked by a mini version of our avatars as seen in the attached image. But, at least from what I can tell, those only seem to show up for threads participated in since the change-over. I'm guessing that isn't something that is fixable, and if it is, it's low priority.

Thanks! Should I need to log out/in or clear my cache to see the rest of the sub-forums?

Edit: Just so I don't clutter the thread: I'm all set now. Something was cached, but isn't now. Everything is as it should be.

Hello - all paid up. Did a log out, log back in and refresh, but still no Other Crap. Whenever people are restoring, could I please be on the list? Thanks!

Both apps working very quickly this morning. Not sure if anyone changed anything but I'll report back later to see if it's still moving quickly.

Please restore my access to Other Crap. Also (or maybe the same issue), I now show up as a Lurker rather than a Member.

Thanks.

Another post-upgrade member-turned-lurker here. Would love to pay up and contribute, especially considering the amount of traffic that's sure to hit the servers this winter.

Thanks!

I got sent from member to lurker also due to the upgrade.
Fixed, and avatars dispensed where needed.

Things I like: reply notifications

Things I don't like: When I click on a thread, it goes to the last post as opposed to last unread. Is this something I can change in settings?

Things I love: Nip, Sumner, and everyone who puts in the countless hours of unpaid grunt work that go into making this site work. I make less than 5 stops on the internet. I hate the internet. I love SoSH.

Things that Are Just Me Problems: Anxiety, Depression, Loneliness, Boredom, Apathy, Binge Eating, Smoking Too Occasionally, Getting Used to the New Color Scheme & the timestamps.

Also want to extend my gratitude to Nip, Sumner and all the others that make SoSH work. It must be a royal pain in the ass in many ways, and I thank you for all the efforts!

Love the upgrade and all the hard work our outstanding technical team does to keep this site running!

Since the upgrade, have been getting a lot of 'unsupported video' errors for links. Is that because I am browsing via my iPhone 6 Plus? I did a couple of searches for possible posts about this, that didn't show me anything helpful.

Probably. Whatever site is being embedded chooses their own video codecs, you need browser/OS support for their chosen codec. Previously we only allowed embedding of YouTube and a couple of other very widely supported sites; now we allow more sites to be embedded, but some of them may have codecs that aren't supported by some browsers.

Really you'd need to point at a link that's not working and post in Backwash to try to get help from other iOS (iphone/ipad) users.

Have an avatar!

I'll probably also be updating the mobile apps over the next few weeks. I hadn't updated I so long over on the old software because...people do not like change. However this is new software and I've found that the older client has not been performing as well with this newer software.

Any reasons why when I hit the dot next to threads it's taking me to the end and not the last read post?

If you click into a forum and click on a thread (dot or title), it should take you to the first unread post.

If you're in the list of forums and click on the "Most recent post" thread title at the right, it'll take you to the most recent post.

Was free member, then lurker, now paid member but can't see Other Crap. (Are you guys really fixing each of these by hand?!?) Also, thank you!

I also went from Member to Lurker and would like my fix of Other Crap before I get the shakes.

I'm getting this for every embedded tweet on the app. Same issue?

Good morning! Got dropped to Lurker in the upgrade and would love to be re-membered and have my security clearance restored. Love what you guys are doing with the place. Thanks!
