    • Can they add a thumbs up emoji that doesn’t look like it’s being sarcastic?
      My Opinion isn’t determined by what the Popular Opinion is. Sometimes I agree with the Majority, Sometimes I Don’t. If My Opinion is Different than Yours, I have to Ask One Question:

        I would like to see the original one brought back as well. It's funny you mentioned is being sarcastic - I thought it sort of looked that was too though what ever similarity there is was unintentional. There was apparently a problem with what carried over from the old site. I located a copy of the original and provided it to the tech team.

        Fingers crossed.

        • Just another pos about notifications. Prior to, we would have to search around for the posts we made to see if anyone responded to them. This upgrade leaves no doubt about the feedback. That's a plus from a time saver perspective and for being a "tracking" aid.

              • I tried to upload an attachment and it said I wasn't authorized to do this. Haven't read through the entire thread so don't know if there is a reason for this. Or, how can you upload a URL and have the image show up instead of having to click the URL? sorry if this has been explained before.

                  Attachments are not allowed with the exception of avitars and sigs (I could be wrong on the last part, I'd have to look). For regular images used in posts use the image attachment button in the editor, enter the URL (and if an upload box is checked, uncheck it).

                  • This may have been answered, but here goes.....when I tried to edit a post of mine, which was quoting a post, the screen shows my name but no post within. This happened once before but I worked around it. The quote I responded to had a tweet within. Not sure if that matters.

                      Did either post have an embedded tweet?

                      Was this desktop or mobile?

                        Maybe this will help...it's quotes 172 and 173 in the "All Broncos QBs Ineligible...." thread.

                        Desktop.

                          That was mine and tweets prevent any editing... until the techs figure it out.

                          Unless a sweet tweet contains a video or some graphic, I think I'm going to go back to just copying & pasting the essential text of the tweet, perhaps hyperlinking it to the twitter page if people want to read more.

                            This is correct.

                            The techies know about it and we are waiting on a fix.

                              • I am not sure where things are re: limits on "likes". Sounds funny just to say that. BUT I am just making a suggestion as to how this could shake out over time. First, I don't care how many likes we can give out, per day, per person, etc. If that's the way of the social media universe, so be it. Seems like a teenage thing, but that's the way of the land.

                                However, if this is tied to contribution points, I think some alterations should be considered. There are at least 2 elements that seem relevant to the CP world that come into play (IMO):
                                1) Some folks say they do not want to lose their status, given how long it took them to "earn" their points (in the pre "like" version)
                                2) Based on what happened before, when apparently groups were CPing their pals up the ladder to higher status, there was a change in the process to alter the accelerated upward momentum. Therefore, it seems it was deemed to be a negative response by individuals/groups to aid others by speeding up their rise in the CP value system.

                                Based on these two principles, I have a couple of suggestions:

                                1) Restrict "likes" as was the case with CPs. IF it can be done (again, sorry if this has been ruled out for sure)
                                2) If #1 can not be implemented, do away with the overall point system. Why? Because it goes against the logic behind the previous ruling of restricting CP usage.

                                Having a "like" box to click on to see who sent the "like" is cool. But it took me a while to realize that I can see everyone else's. It then became abundantly clear that some folks are sending out a pile of likes, often to the same folks. Again, I don't care if you like to like, but it does seem to devalue the point system, just as it did before when CPs were restricted. I for example could theoretically lift a new member, say a friend, to various levels of recognition in very little time. If two or more of us combined our effort, it would happen very quickly. This is what the board was trying to steer clear of. And no offence, but I don't think any member here should have that capability. It becomes very much a popularity situation.

                                OK....so if we do away with the total points, how do we define levels of success? First of course, one can grandfather current levels. No one loses their status.

                                The harder part is, what to do going forward, if likes can not be restricted similar to the CP process? And given I don't think anyone here should be able to hand out a bunch of them every day, especially to the same folks. So it is challenging. Simply telling members not to do it will never work. But when I see members giving out loads of them to some of the same people, I think we've lost sight of years of good rules and process.

                                Just my take. Again, restrictions would solve everything. But if not possible, some form of revamp. Otherwise just describe it for what it is, a popularity/buddy system with some level, hopefully to a high degree, of merit as well.

                                Thanks for listening. Just my opinion.
