Has anyone worked out where the private messages have gone?

Also, some of the posts are not displaying

for example

I posted "Become a member:Why would you want to" last night.  It is there when I search, but it does not come up in the recent posts.  Maybe it is just a problem for a few posts over the change over time?

Maybe this should be our thread for problems and difficulties with the new system.

It may be just me (Cphill), but I tried to log in at my local library.....unfortunately, I had forgotten my password (my home computer stores it automatically) and after a few attempts at guessing it unsuccessfully, I got "locked" out. (I'm an idiot - what can I say ??)

Well, when I got back home, I still couldn't log in, so I just created a new user name - namely, mine...so now, "Cphill" is just "Chris"......

Mmmmm.......looks like a few "bugs" have shown up at the picnic...

Mmmm Yes a few ants!

Thanks for letting us know Chris.   Hopefully Andre will help us get you back up with your original username.

I just used the built in Latex.

I couldn't get align to work and it is not particularly friendly for long displays. (Which mine was)

It may be quite nice for little displays.  We will see.

---------------------------------

I have already written to Andre regarding the lack of member section and the missing messages.

I will write another regarding your lock out problem and other issues but i might let them build up a little first.

Hopefully it will all be sorted out quite quickly.

I was looking at the emicons but I don't think I like the new set very much.   (that one is ok)

Im so sorry that im bothering you guys on a thread that doesnt apply to my question but i dont know how to contact you guys privately, anyways melany i was wondering if you could have a look at the problem you had helped me with a bit back,

$$\mathrm{\ }$$

### (T*(cos(45)/cos(30)))*sin(30) + (T*sin(45) - 50 = 0

The response you gave was well worked but the solution wasnt right (at least i dont think it was) anyways the correct anwser should be 45. Think you could help me

Funny; I have the same log-in problem as Chris:(

Seems like Mr. Massow is experimenting again, which is alright.  Guess we'll just have to wait and see how it all turns out.

<= This emoticon is somewhat cute though.

Cheers, ~Kitty<3

Hi Chris,

I think I mentioned that problem in the email that I have already sent to Andre.  The whole 'member' section is missing.

Actually I am hoping that Andre is reading this thread.  There has been at least one 'admin' response to a question this morning.

Hi Kitty,

It is nice to know that you are around.  And yes, we all hope that aAdre can 'spray' the bugs soon.  A good does of Pyrethrum might do it.  I hope that are not SUPER bugs that have become genetically immune. (There is no laughing icon!)

Another problem?  Also you can't copy and paste in here.

Looks like the old maths stuff doesn't display.  I note there are two new maths buttons. Let's see if they work:

$${\left({\frac{{\mathtt{12}}{!}}{{\mathtt{8}}{!}{\mathtt{\,\times\,}}({\mathtt{12}}{\mathtt{\,-\,}}{\mathtt{8}}){!}}}\right)} = {\mathtt{495}}$$  This is Math(Input=Result)

Can't see how Math(Input) works!

Hmm!  Math(Input=Result) doesn't display properly after posting!

Ok, it does now!  Weird, it didn't at first, it showed an icon!

Now back to an icon!!!!!

Well, the only key top answerer who is unaccounted for is Rom.

It is nice to 'see' all you others here!  Hopefully private messaging will be restored soon.

When I tried to sign in on my smart phone I got the most severe warning that I have ever seen.  It did not trust the sign in security on this new site.  I decided to take it seriously and I did not sign in.  My lap top, which also has google chrome is not complaining at all.  Computers are a mystery to me!

Enjoy the rest of your day.

Although the questions are ordered latest first the answers aren't.  This is annoying when the thread is very long (e.g. End of day wrap).  Previously we could choose to go in at either the first or the last post in a thread.

When questions are answered they are not moving to the top of the forum.

This means that they are hard to keep track of and rubbish new posts supercede high value older posts that people are still answering.

Please Andre, this will not work for us.

Also, I have not been able to upload any pictures.

Here's the main problem with the "new" system: The "old" one worked a lot better....I'm all for "improvements," but this "improvement" is clunky, at best......

(At least bring back the old "math input".......this new thing isn't intuitive at all !!)

Bring back the Private Messaging...it is sometimes very helpful to be able to communicate with the other users !!! Plus...airing all our gripes about the new system on the Forum pages coudn't inspire much confidence in the people who have questions......
