OK, yes the new emoticons suck,
Yes the site looks too teeny,
Yes its less user friendly

I can deal with all this and Im sure in time it will all become normal but the firehose is another matter.
I used to be able to log in once a day and I would be able to see in 1 page every topic (regardless of forum) that had been posted in the last 24 hrs.
I havent been on ATS as much as I used too, I accepted the changes and navigated around as best I could, today I had my first real play with the new system and for the life of me couldnt find anything similar to the firehose. The home page doesnt change like it used to, whereas before it had the top stories from the past 3 days it seems to be longer now.
Also the new topics button takes you to a screen that only has the past 8 hrs in it, and after that its just recent replies!!!!!

Am I missing something? Is it still here just under a new name? Is it hiding from me specifically?

I read with disgust the people whining about leaving the site for good due to the changes, I fear I will now have to throw my voice in with theirs.
I dont really care for the sites new look but I love the content and previously I loved how easy it was too find.
While the site may basically be the same due to this 1 factor my enjoyment while here has significantly dropped.

Can someone please please please tell me Im an idiot and the firehose (or its exact equivalent) is still here

That hose is just a lil drip, LoL.


OP, I miss it too!!!
The closest you're gonna get, is "new" (the leaf) and when you scroll to the bottom, push further and it will load some more. Not nearly as much viewable on the screen as our beloved Firehose, but it is what it is.

Glad Im not alone (would have liked to use smiley face icon but feeling difficult and wanna protest)
Has anyone brought this up with Mods?
Surely it wouldnt be hard to add one like they used to have??

Adding to that, they aren't in order either. There will be older threads on top of newer threads in the list.

The 24 hour fire-hose was "da bomb".

Second to the right is the information icon?

Is there a way for you post a picture of this specific icon?

Many thanks


Edit: Ha! Never mind, found it. It's third from the left on my screen. Lol.

Hey dude,

Sorry but its not the same,
New takes you to what I assume to be replies to posts, its not the new topics from the past 24 hrs and the new hose part has the most recent 10 or so threads not all of them from the last day.

Did you guys deliberately get rid of the old system or was it just left out by accident?

Would it be possible to get it back?

The new topics list doesn't do the last 24 hours like the firehose did.
The bottom post this morning was only posted 6 hours ago, and I can't find any way to load more. The page only goes so far.

It would be nice if we could have at least the last 12 hours of postings. A longer page...

It's not the same, and it's not replies.

It's a chronological list of new threads, along with information about replies and flags.

It can show up to 72 hours of threads through the auto-scroll... just scroll to the bottom, more threads will load.

I just tried loading more again, and this time it did work.
It didn't seem like it was going to ( I was thinking an iPhone issue), but I kept pushing at the scroll idea, and then it caught and loaded more threads.
Yay!!

*thumbs up*
