Seems to be working now - it's not a text link anymore though, it means clicking on the little filled circle before the topic title

Yay! Good find.

I don't have any circles, I have stars - I presume it's the same thing.

Yeah, they are. Circles are the topics you haven't commented on, Stars the ones you have, luv. :smile:

Yup. If you hover the curser over them, it should say 'go to first unread' or something. The stars just mean the thread has been popular recently.

I see no circles!  I shall have to await the arrival of these mythical beings!  :lol:

I have either stars or nothing.  The only place I have circles is on the main section of the forum with little speech bubbles in them - they take you to the most recent post in the relevant forum but they have always done that.

 

I think the stars mean it's a thread you have commented in.

You did Mr Lemming, my apologies, when I scanned back I didn't see your reply.  :mellow:

Anyway I've screencapped my screen showing stars and no circles unless I'm being a moron (quite likely). Maybe it's something in the user settings.

Is anyone seeing their signature again? I just checked the the process cycle Invision said was the reason they're not there has stopped. But somehow I am too stupid to find my own signature. :D

EDIT: My screen looks like yours, Raylenth.

I don't see any signatures for anyone Queen and I'm glad i'm not going mad and others are circleless as well.

Having checked my profile though there's no category there for a signature.  Location and the About Me bit are still there but there's nothing for signatures, so it looks like it's not an issue with them just not showing, but them not existing at all.

I just checked my emails and WHOA. I know you exist, forum. Calm down.

And I hadn't realised the signatures were gone. :blink: Uh-oh. I'm too stupid to remember my own met guests without my signature...

Maybe you only have stars because you have commented on them topics/ and read all the others? I only have circles on ones I haven't read yet.

Fair enough, looks like the stars are for ones you have commented in, circles for the ones you haven't. 

I also can see no signatures.

According to my profile, I've apparently won 13 days. Didn't realise I was competing for anything :huh:

 

4 days.  Ooops.  Haven't won since 22 August 2013 either.  I'm obviously sitting on my liked laurels.

 

*sits*

Ladies and gentlemen, the signatures should be enabled now.

However, as they got rid of certain moderating Options for the signatures here's the official caveat: First, no URLs please. Pictures and such are blocked by Default. I really don't want to enable that because it's eating a lot of bandwidth.

Second and most important: any abuse - if there's too much Violation of the Forum rules like other Events Promotion, swearing etc. - will lead to us turning off the signatures again.

Hi Queen, I know you guys have been working hard on sorting this all out, and thank you for that.  I do appreciate you all have your own jobs and lives! I just wanted to remind about 1 issue that's outstanding - the 'like' info.  It's still coming through unidentified and just says a 'person' liked a post.

This new forum is very frustrating.

What would take a second to see new announcement threads, now takes a lot longer. 

I used to just login to the forum and just glance at the top right hand corner to see whether there are new guests announced, but now I have to browse through each thread.

I don't want to know who replied to what thread/post and all that social media like stuff on the 'activity' feature.

Hi Graphic, you can turn off the notifications in your profile, and although the loss of the new topics pane is annoying you can look at the Activity tab on and just look at all the new posts.  It's not as quick but it means you don't have to go into each forum.

Hi

How do you just see the new topics as you say? I am on mobile (if that makes a difference ) and only have 'activity' and  'activity levels activity' which shows people replying (condensed does too) not just new topics.

 

Sorry if being dumb

Only just discovered how to get onto the newest post in a thread... by clicking the time it was posted and not the title of the thread :YAHOO:

The mobile version (as with many sites) is cut down and doesn't have as many options as on a computer. Having a look, it seems to me this is one of the options that has been cut on mobile.
