eek! oh noes!


And so what philosophical perspective do you prefer I take with an ignorant, name-calling, vitriolic post which just causes me to lose it and want to kill the SOB?


Back when ATS was what? Compared to now? Jeezy-pete. :shk:

But ok, I'll play along. It will be the banning of me, but I'll play along.

If a member is really bothering you why not just use Alert or make a complaint against them instead? When enough people complain about a person the staff will deal with them....

Anyone who gets that worked up over pixels on a computer screen really needs a new "philosophical perspective" from the real world.

The replies in the message box no longer link to the thread where the poster replied to me, so at this point I have no idea which tread he replied to. Is this a glitch that will be fixed? Does anyone else have this problem?

Thanks

Yay.

That is all.

ETA: Is it just me, or does the Signature section look way bigger?

Does it provide for more content or is the site automatically making the spacing that big??

Well in this case it was a success.



Now I do miss the BTS Smileys though

Seems to be working again, no need to reply.

Thanks anyway.

Not just you. I'd rather keep the avatar size we have than to have a signature area suitable for storing a Saturn V rocket.


The pea green stuff isn't so hot. Things look promising though. I'm still adjusting and it obviously requires adjusting.

I don't know about the signature area being bigger, but have noticed that the avatars are more narrow and shorter, there is a space on each side of my avatar that wasn't there before. Don't remember reading anything about that changing.

SO mentioned a few pages back that there will be changes in guidelines for avatar size coming soon...

So, everytime I try to edit a post, I'm getting a 404 Page after I click the submit button.

Now once I go back to my posts, by hitting the back button, or hitting recent posts, I see that it's been edited...

WTH?

Thanks,
I actually remember reading it now, duh.




Most-likely a 240 pixel maximum height for the avatar, no height limit for backgrounds.

It's our feeling that, back when ATS was a more wild and untamed place, the ignore function was an appropriate respite for members. However, we now have a sharp and professional staff who works hard at keeping the streets clean and the lights on. I understand it may cause some friction for those who were accustomed to negating the input of certain members, but please give it time as the ability to consider even the most abrasive contribution -- from its philosophical perspective -- is a critical component of denying ignorance and supporting free-and-open expression.
I tended to use the Ignore function as a temporary way to cool off. If a user was baiting me in one or more threads, and I was getting too riled up, I'd ignore him for a week or two until he lost interest in the thread and decided to troll somewhere else. I'd always go back through later and delete the Ignores from my list.

Perhaps an "Ignore for x days" system could be a viable stopgap?

This image clearly shows that you are Mexico member. May I see your immigration papers, please?





This image proves you are fnord-ing everyone's unconscious thus I must question the why of people getting so upset with you that they would upset you so much that you feel you must ignore them.


Why is it remotely difficult to ignore without technological prosthetics? Why would trolls make anyone angry? I find it easy to merely scroll passed but usually it is unnecessary since I fail to get sucked in emotionally in the first place. I never used the feature. One time I tested it; that was all.

I hate to be a complainer, but, is there any way to be able to browse ats the old way? I was just getting used to where everything was and I loved being able to read a thread, and be able to click one of the "top threads" on the right hand side of the page. Having to click the new topics page, makes it all seem to busy looking. So I was hoping there was a way to change the view of ats?

Agreed.

I too would like the option to browse ATS in the old style.

An "ATS Classic" button would be ideal and would make the site more efficient for those who would rather have that than this version, which some find appealing.

I am a bit lost.

I see no new threads or most active threads on the right hand side and that is how I surfed ats.

I also agree with others about the ignore button.
Denying ignorance shouldn't mean embracing idiots and trolls.

Usually when i went to clear my ignore list,most were banned.

Other then that you guys did a great job,everything looks slick.



I can't surf ats with no new thread list on the right so until that comes back I don't have much choice but to log out as i am not about to hit a bunch of buttons in every forum to see the new threads.
Ohhh the withdrawls are gonna be hard.
