I’d like to extend Alisha’s previous note about the e-mail notifications to the PM notifications. They don’t actually link to your private messages like the old notifications did, they instead link to the Daz main page. What’s the point in that? You can’t access your PMs from the main page.

This may have something to do with the fact that you get automatically logged out of the forums after 15 minutes, same as the rest of the site, so linking into something you need to be logged in to see might not actually work, right now. Just a wild guess.


On another note, the site accepts my password just fine, but anything in the forum user panel that needs a password to change insists that my password is incorrect.

Was it even explained why the website logs you out every 15 minutes? I think it’s incredibly silly, it’d be like Google Mail logging you out every 15 minutes. I think we’re all old enough and wise enough to make our own decision as to whether we want to log off or not.

I think it’s because there’s no separation between the forum account and the shop account, like there used to be, so to protect private information, it just logs you out of everything. I’d rather see something where we had to maybe type in our password again after 15 minutes to use checkout or shop account functions, but that you’d stay generally logged in to the site so your discounts still show up and the forum still knows who you are for a significantly longer time. I can seriously spend more than 15 minutes shopping, and I definitely spent more than 15 minutes replying to this post, because I kept thinking of things and then un-thinking them and rethinking them…

I know right? 15 minutes isn’t as long as some people make it out to be. I think simply logging you out completely is a bit of a lazy solution to the problem. The solution you put forward is pretty much exactly what the older website did (even when you were logged in you still needed to “log in” again for shopping actions), and is also similar to what most online banks do (Lloyds TSB requires you to input your password in again before you make any payments), and in the long run makes much more sense.

The forum threads appear to be ordered by the time of creation (most recent first) rather than by the time of the most recent update.  It would be nice to at least give the option to order by update time (as in the olden days), since an update to a very old thread will pass unnoticed.  Or am I missing some kind of clever option?

It does rather make a mockery of the ‘remember me’ check box when the forum seems to have the memory retention of a goldfish.  (“Castle? What castle?” ... sorry, in-joke wink)

DAZ_ann0314 (or any Mod in the know):

I don’t seem to have the ability to edit my profile.  I would like to add a sig-line.


I read the Forums FAQ’s, and it states I should have a link button in the top right corner titled “Your Control Panel”, but I have no such button on any of my pages (including my Member List page).


I have four link buttons at top right only;  “My Cart”, “My Wishlist”, “My Account” (Yes people, I’ve gone there, in circles several times), and “Log Out”.


For troubleshooting purposes, my user name is not displayed anywhere (not even next to Log Out), and I am using my original log-in/PW.  I know, it was said everyone would need to “rejoin”, but I tried my old log-in, it worked, so I stuck with it.


Could this be the deciding issue?


Do I really need to create a new account just to have one link button to add/edit profile attributes?


Take care all…
Ken

The two links for profile and editing, at least for me, are in the gray area that is the same color as the background at the edge of the screen, in the space between all the menu bars and the top of the thread box.


First line on right side, dark:  “My cart…etc…Log Out”
Next line, white:  Search box
Next line, beige grey:  Home / Forum Home…etc.
Open space matching light grey background around thread box:  Your public profile, Your control panel
Lighter grey box with blue links
Black box with PM stuff.

Let’s see how much I can mess up posting a screen clip…


O, note that those links aren’t on all pages.  They only seem to appear on regular forum browsing pages.  They’re gone as I’m typing this post or if I open the account settings.

Thanks guys.  I am seeing it now.  Good to go…


I could swear it was not there earlier when I made my post (on any page), but now they are there.


Thank you for your help.  It is much appreciated.


Take care all…

I wish they’d get a new goldfish; maybe one that’s been genetically altered to have a memory like an elephant.smirk  I liked being able to sign in in the morning….go dilly dallying around throughout the day, come back & just be able to pop in for whatever without having to constantly sign in.

At least, now Daz isn’t trying to influence me to munch on some pancakes with the asking me if I’m not this guy with a name that reminds of a famous syrup.shut eye

It would be nice if people stopped posting the names of others in the forum of those wrong names popping up for them in the store. Moderators…?
