Update

Hello everyone,

As you can probably tell, we've performed an upgrade that isn't massive, but isn't insignificant. It looks like everything is working well, but as always, please chime in if you notice something that seems broken or not working correctly.

You also have a redundant "Reply to This Topic" button at the top of the page, when it is easy to see the same instruction inside the Reply text box. Also, the "Start New Topic" button/link  should be in the header, not between the top post and comments of an old topic thread.

Also, the edit button has been hidden in the "..." which is not user friendly.

Also see that Flash is still being used, but it is now obsoleted.

Also, thanks for maintaining this site. :-)

Thanks for updating and the update!  :)

Now it explains why everything looks just that little bit different...and you're wondering why, when you can't quite put your finger on it, before you convince yourself you must be imagining things...:ph34r:

GeorgeH has pointed out the one option which is a the very top right that will mark every thread of every forum as "read". When in a forum, there is a button at the top right of the forum on the same line as the pagination that says "Mark Forum as Read".

Yes.  I can see that on my computer, but I can no longer find it on my phone.

Sorry, I should have been clear on that.  

I've probably been using my smartphone a lot more than the computer this past year.

Several of us are having trouble with the edit change.  https://maestronet.com/forum/index.php?/topic/347991-point-of-order/

Is there any way that you could restore this to the way it was?  :)

.On balance, there was more complaining about not being able to log in when the forum added mobile capability.

@ghunt, it is still very inconvenient to logout on an Android smartphone. This can become a security/privacy issue. Please get the team to address it?

Yes all of the above issues would be good to fix.

I have also been having loads of problems viewing threads recently on my account, I just get a 500 error all the time and can't view anything.

I have tried mitigating it using all the usual tricks: VPN, different browsers, different internet connection, different devices and cache / cookie clearance but a lot of the time I still have problems so it must be account related.

At the moment I can only view my private messages. I have found a way around being blocked from the threads by viewing as a guest and trying to post something and logging in. This seems to be the only way for me to post things at the moment. (This is exactly what I have done to post this message).

There seems to be some internal account / servers issues causing it.

What is the deal with the banner ads?

For example, at least two are obsolete (rehaironline.com and turnerviolins.com), one uses Flash and does not display (obsolete technology), and one announces a new product launch from over three years ago.

And @martin swan, how long are we going to have to endure poor Larry's heartbreak? :(

(Actually, MN wouldn't be the same without Martin's banner ad! :lol:)

I wonder if the banner ads could actually be made more useful and relevant to readers and users as well as more profitable to the site owners.
