Please excuse the dust in the air
« on: February 06, 2018, 09:41:30 AM »
Some of you that have been here for much of the life of the Forestry Forum know that there have been changes along the road. Some of them rocky.  I've never been one to sit on my laurels, knowing full well from the beginning that as the forum grew and the internet evolved, we would need to do the same. The changes taking place now, like the new server, software updates and upgrades I realize cause our members some grief, but it is all being done for the betterment of the forum and an outlook for its future.  Believe me, I'm with ya on this. I like the comfort of familiarity as much as ya'll.  :)

I'm trying to make this as painless as possible for the members, but I can see that there is some aggravation. I assure you I understand it because when you are aggravated, you let me know, and I know because it isn't just you letting me know, it is everyone that is aggravated.

There are still some more things that are going to change. It is very important that the Forestry Forum's format changes some because of the fact that mobile devices are becoming the norm. Phones and tablets many times are how you connect with the forum, so that is something I am focusing on right now. I've done a few little things to move in that direction already. Some of you that do use mobile devices may have noticed. I will try to continue to make improvements, but in doing so, there may be times when things are in disarray. I'd equate this disarray to remodeling a living area or a bedroom, so remember it could be much worse. Like a kitchen or a bathroom!
 
  Eventually the dust will clear and comfort and normality will return, so please, understand that I understand.  :)

I hate change more than most, but after a little while, it just becomes the new normal. As long as I can always get desktop view on my mobile device, I'm happy.  :) One forum I go to automatically sets the view based on the device,  no choice. You lose so much with mobile view. Their software is poor, anyway.

Dave, I am appointing you my test subject. If you see a change that is not compatible with how you view the forum, let me know. No, you don't have a choice. :D

Progress is good but sometimes painful (or dusty).  I would hate to be stuck in the past.

Do what ya think is best Jeff and no complaints from me.

Jeff, I see absolutely no reason for having to explain anything you (and/or others) do for this site, I don't complain and even if I did I'd have no idea what I was complaining about anyway because I know nothing about operating this stuff.  It's fun just to read and catch up with everyone, learn, learn more, and of course laugh a lot (oh, and get hungry along the way  :))!  Thanks for the ride!

I've got no issues with getting feedback on problems. That is how I know many times there is a problem in the first place. It would be advantages though, if people would take a look in the obvious places to see if something has been addressed. For example the trouble logging in issue.  I've addressed that now in multiple places and answered a whole bunch of emails.  Every time the cure was the same.  :) If after following the instructions given and it doesn't help. First make sure you followed the instructions correctly, then, by all means, if that doesn't work, let me know. :)

Well, things have gone totally wacky since I last posted. Stuff is all over the place, if it's even still there.  :D

What is your screen width on your desktop?  Can you give me a screenshot of what you are seeing?

Ok, that's got everything back to normal. I just googled and got the same thing for screenshot.  I just get something about a new way to talk to google.
