Ok, so I signed in this morning on a Windoze machine and thought Woodsman was being a bit grumpy, the site wasn't bad... just different.

Then I got home and tried to sign on using a Macbook.

What a clusterfuck, the site is literally unusable on a Mac if you do not use Dark Mode. Without dark mode on, yo seem to have one page floating in front of another, you can see the link to log in but you can't get to it because of what looks like the title page covering it. And then another pop up appears askign to register with facebook or email or whatever

Switching to Dark mode allowed me to log in and post this. No dark mode = no functionality on a Mac. Not in Safari, not in Chrome.

Sorry Woodsman, I had no idea what you were going on about. Now I do and fully agree. The site is quite literally unuseable to Mac users who do not click on dark mode.

Try accessing the site on an imac without choosing dark mode. Better yet, get someone who doesn't know how all this shit works try to connect on an imac in front of you. Bring popcorn, hilarity will ensue.

It looks better now than it did for the last coupe of days except that it's impossible for me to see the login on a white background. I just hover the cursor over the top until I find it. Mouseover color is only about a shade darker.

Hey can we replace the "trending" post section with "recent" post section.

On the old layout I liked having all the recent posts/threads on the landing page so I could immediately jump to them rather than click through the various sub forums.

Can you tell me which browser you are using?

Are you referring to the trending section on the homepage? If so, the developers are working on making the homepage more relevant to our members.

How To Find New Posts

Near the upper right-hand corner of the community, you will see navigation icons.

The first icon is for what’s new on the site.

Clicking on it, by default, will take you to new unread posts.

On that page, you can click on additional tabs as well, such as Popular, if you prefer to view active topics. You can also mark all as read.

Firefox 73.0 64bit on Windows10
I tested on Firefox 73 64 bit on Windows 10 and it is displaying properly for me.

I am wondering if maybe you have a plugin/extension blocking them or if your monitor needs to be adjusted?

Do you have the same issue when you use the dark mode feature?

You know why Google is so successful?


Recommended Reading, just trash it,
Trending Discussions, just trash it.
Top Photos, trash it.
Then get a handle on how much bandwidth the flashy advertising animations eat up.

I'm going to miss the ability to edit my posts ad infinitum.
Now I gotta watch what I post.

We may never see cyclocross (sp?) again...

Can you explain more what you are asking?

I can, we are cheap, we like to be entertained and we like free stuff.
Think of it this way, if you sent us all free T-Shirts with CafeRacer.Net on them it would be just like investing in a whole bunch of moving advertising that we can actually enjoy.
Make mine large size, white with a big logo on the back and a smaller one on the front ;)



Plus:
I predict that the tomsjack flea bay craigslist spambot will become the sites top poster.
Cricket, you do realize there is no actual motorcycle rider attached to the other side of that account right?

We will continue to see weekly updates (approximately) that are largely fueled by community feedback. While that doesn't mean we can action every request, it does mean we are actively listening to the feedback and sharing it with the developers.

I know I'll eventually get used to it.... but I'm still not a fan of the new look. The old site layout and format was simple and relatively bare-bones.

And another thing... those "top photos" that the VSA Admin uploaded show a significant ignorance of the philosophy and character of this community.

and the bloody advertisements aren't just there they follow you and then change and then sh*t suddenly pops up over the entire page ... they promised faster, the only thing that is faster about it is the bandwidth consumption.

Agree 100%. It would be easier to start a new DoTheTon clone from scratch than bend this forum into that image, yet that seems to be the goal.
