I wish it had more standard forum settings. I miss having a list of my subscribed forums and threads so I can find it easily.

I don't mean to be a party pooper but the notification system really sucks.

It shows all the posts (individual notifications for each post in a thread), so I'm looking at the same thread multiple times. That's if I don't miss it completely because it just removes the bolding if you click on the system somewhere, and then you don't know what you've seen and what you haven't. If you click on "show all" then they're suddenly all bolded again. Hope that gets sorted out.

My Settings are as follow and they seem to fix the duplicates issue.
Show Me: Content Items Only
Content Types: All Content
Read Status: Content I Haven't Read + Unread Item Links Take Me to the First Comment
Ownership: Everything
Following: No Items Checked
Time Period: Any Time
Sorting: Newest First

Make sure to save as new stream then name it something you can remember.
Click the third icon (Checkmark) to have those settings used any future time you click the Unread Content link.

There's just one difference between yours and mine, that I can see. I've changed it to yours, so we'll see if that helps. It's really hard to find where to change your settings - not user friendly.

Couple of quick observations.

 

I couldn't find a members list.

Clicking on the post count of a thread no longer breaks it down by users.

I can't find an option to view a list of threads with new content.

There's no source view option for writing posts.

I gave Jason a plugin that does this, but it isn't working.....he's looking into it.

has there been a limit imposed regarding pms? amount or age?  i seem to be missing some tho their from 10 years or more ago but some of them contained Band info i think.

 

Also how can i change settings for how they appear? those are kinda hard for me to see like they are   need them wider really

 

and if im looking for something old the only way ive found to look if i dont know the title is to just keep scrolling down    which takes forever when u have a lot.

No limit that I'm aware of, and the settings are just different now - you'll need to mess around with them to get them to what you're ok with.  A few members (Nikon, specifically) have spent some time figuring that stuff out....you might want to reach out to him for some pointers.

I personally have all my saved PM's going back 4 years, didn't save any from before then, but Dice has been around DM much longer so I suppose there may be some max age the upgrade kept.

It looks like one can no longer do a search on all of someone's posts - you have to search for a specific word too.

Is there a way to make the view wider and minimize that right column? It's very hard fir me to read the narrower page.

Is it possible to set the default to viewing the first unread in messages and threads instead of either the last post made or the first page? 

 

Mobile doesn't seem to give a first unread option :(

Can't seem to blog a post either, which is what I used to do to advertise events.

Any news on this? It's coming up to report time and a lot of other things, which we kinda need these functions for.

 

Oh and how does one quote with the quote the quoted person quoted?

    •   Can you list some of those points here?     Chemotherapy.   Its success rates are abysmally low compared to treatment options in other diseases, and horrendously expensive without medical insurance.   Still, when the alternative is death, most people choose to undergo chemotherapy.   Same thing for proposed solutions to climate change. The reason you don't believe in them is because you don't believe climate change will harm you. You're like a teenager who doesn't believe drugs and alcohol will kill him, who believes he will live forever, and thus keeps on partying.
    • Today is the release day for Mystic Dragon, the second novel in Jason Denzel’s Mystic series.  This captivating story is a great addition to the series, expanding the scope of the plotlines, the characters, and the world.   Slight spoilers will follow.   Synopsis: The first book, Mystic, showed Pomella AnDone, a commoner, summoned by the High Mystic of Moth to trial for an apprenticeship.  Though Pomella shows strength and courage and cunning, she’s not selected to be the High Mystic’s apprentice.  Instead, she is chosen by Grandmaster Faywong, a man retired from the position of High Mystic of Moth, and becomes his apprentice.   Mystic Dragon picks up the story seven years after the events of Mystic.  Now, Pomella is a full Mystic, using her training, and her reputation as a commoner, to stop a slaver named Shadefox.  Shadefox has been taking the Unclaimed people of Moth and selling them on the Continent.  Her mission is cut short, however, by the celestial event known as Crow Tallin--which takes place once every sixty years.  Pomella is needed on Moth to help control the fay as Treorel, the Mystic Star, momentarily links the human world and Fayun.   However, Shevia, another Mystic, shows signs of going against the traditions of Crow Tallin.  Shevia has been given visions of the future and her intentions for the event counter greatly to what Pomella is instructed to do.  The two women must make some sort of agreement, or it will be a full-out war between them.  And Shevia’s powers are much greater than anything Pomella has ever seen.   Pros: From start to finish, this story was enthralling.  While the first novel focused on Moth culture, the world is expanded greatly in Mystic Dragon.  We see many of the other cultures of the world which solidifies it in the reader’s mind.  The countries on the Continent are very different from Moth, and they offer a contrast to Pomella’s upbringing.   Though the story takes place seven years later, those years aren’t lost.  Through flashback scenes, we get to see exactly what happened to Sim and Shevia during that time.  These scenes were among my favorite in the book because of how poignant the emotional reactions were.  Much darker than Mystic, this novel dwells on loss and pain, sadness and suffering, loneliness and abuse.  These times where the characters are at their lowest makes them shine so much brighter when we see them try their hardest to overcome what’s kept them suppressed.     As the time of Crow Tallin approached, I was constantly guessing the direction the book would take. It was completely unpredictable. There were so many ways the events could have played out, so many choices the characters could have made.  One surprise after another kept me in suspense until the very last page.   And Pomella.  I love her as a character.  Though she’s been a Mystic for nearly seven years, she’s never forgotten her commoner heritage.  Though powerful, she never lets that get in the way of her helping people.  She could live a life of luxury, but she insists on being among the commoners.  Her character has stayed true despite being so highly elevated.  She struggles through this book, she grows, and her future is still uncertain.   Cons:
      The deaths.  I won’t give away who (or how many) die, but some of them devastated me.  Not to say these deaths were for shock value.  They had a purpose.  I hope the third novel will ease the pain at these losses, though.   Conclusion: This story was engrossing.  It was difficult to put down because I wanted to see how the events unfolded.  The pace kept the actions going, pulling me along with it, even late into the night.  The themes of loss and survival resonated strongly with me.  I am eagerly awaiting the conclusion to the series, as so many questions were left unanswered at the end of Mystic Dragon.   Rating: 5 out of 5   You can purchase Mystic Dragon from Dragonmount’s DRM-free eBook store.  To find out more about Jason Denzel and the series you can visit his website, or follow him on Facebook or Twitter.
