Wow, Tom, so that's what you look like! What silly said that seeing our images would dampen the experience?
I'm getting errors when using the link to read postings after mine. The general "Read New Postings" link seems to work fine.
I'm sure Peter will look into this once he had some sleep...
Well, I'm glad to see this live. It looks good.
Thanks for helping to break it as an Alpha tester...
Congrats guys! I was so happy to get the email that things were up and running! I've been stranded at the airport in Barcelona for the last 12 hours. Perfect timing to play around in the new D-word.
whoops, I am about to double post, cause the other was in playing around as I didn't notice help. How do I change my password back to something I can remember?
David, see here ...
In reply to Ben Kempas's post on Mon 10 Sep 2007 :
Uh oh... something broke already?! I guess I'll have to fix it...
Yes, I'm getting them all the time, but only with the "after yours" link. Am I the only one?
Just fixed it!
Peter, "the fixer" Gerard. Only thing I don't like is being called member. Kind of makes me self conscious and wonder what a female member should be called.
Yes, I'm the fixer all right, and I can even fix your post so there's an "r" at the end of my first name!
OK I read the instructions, and now I see that the links are to the posts that are in the various topics.
So far so good. THANK YOU PETER! AND BEN. AND DOUG. AND EVERYONE ELSE WHO WAS A PART OF MAKING THE NEW D-WORD HAPPEN. Sorry I'm yelling. I'm just so bloody excited.
It could be that I need to look a little further, but are you going to have instructions, or panels that show the tools you can use - on the posting pages? It would be wonderful.
Click on the little blue ? icon above the posting box for posting instructions. Or click "Help" in the menu at the top of the page for general instructions. Anything else, just ask here!
Erica, Glad you like it!
Long live the search function!
Milt, there's also the Help page that you can access from the top menu. You'll find a "Quick Guide" that I wrote very quickly, so it still lacks sophistication and illustration. (Volunteers needed to improve it.)
Peter (& Ben), thanks so much for the new version. I love it already... Methinks the updated site will save me at least 15 minutes of D-word browsing a day; of course, since it's so easy, I'll probably be wasting time, er, posting even more than before. Great job!
Thanks Peter, Ben, Doug, John, and everybody else!!! This is addictive. RIP Facebook, lol
Okay, a couple of other questions that come up for me -- just suggestions for the future "to-do" list, perhaps?
Most modern browsers will provide automatic spell check - and who's to decide the default spelling for an inbuilt D-Word checker - "color" or "colour"?
You say tomato...
Got the error the first time I tried to upload my photo. Was trying to do 3 different things at once, I'm sure it was because it was way too big and a TIFF. When I reduced it and converted to JPEG it was fine, but might be nice to give the specs for photos. Otherwise, a fabulous job, congratulations.
It would be nice if everybody could upload a picture than we can easily identify them with.
This doesn't have to be a portrait of yourself, it can as well be a picture of your camera, your cat, or a still from a film you made.
