Problems with the New Board
There is a technical problem with the new board. You can type a long message, then press post, and it asks you for your password. You enter it, and then your message is not posted. It’s just lost.
You definitely have to log in. I’ve learned to, usually, select all and copy my post. Sometimes I’ve gotten the login prompt again after logging in.
I also don’t like the ‘Question of the day.’ That’s an unsearchable subject line if it is an interesting topic. Not everyone logs in every day. ‘Question of the day’ is a boring subject line to fill up the page.
On an iPhone, you can tap a word, get the select/copy menu, choose Select All, and then tap the selection and choose copy. I do that most of the time on here when posting. The errant not staying logged in issue is a known issue (I believe more on mobile devices than elsewhere).
@ProphetPriestKing, those numbers also show how many upvotes or downvotes that answer has received. Therefore if there it says (5) and there are only two comments, that means that there have been 3 votes given. But with a glitch, sometimes those votes won’t register in the blue box (if on PC) until much later, but will by the “Comment”.
