Ok so I like this new update but I also have an issue and i'm wondering if anyone else is having the same?

The old one had my profile stuff and inbox and alerts set at the top of the screen so when you scrolled down it would stay at the top to see. Now it doesn't do that, and since I view my browser in a small corner of the computer screen most of the time, it wont be there since after you shrink the width so much it goes away. so alerts for me will be weird now.

didn't know where to put this (all I could think of was announcements but its not really that) but I know someone will at least see it and maybe others have the same problems. Either way thanks for listening.

Alright alright you caught me :p let me reword my original problem:
Tortoise forum is now very hard to get notifications quickly for those of us naughty people who talk torts and work at the same time! :rolleyes:

I don't see the notifications now unless I use the app but I prefer to view the forum in my browser. Has it moved somewhere else and I am missing it?? This is all I see now on the top.

Your alerts, etc. is only shown at the very top of a forum page. Once you've scrolled down a bit, it stays up at the top and you can no longer see it. I'm not a big fan of the way it shows now either. I used to have at least one Private Conversation (PC) each time I logged into the Forum, and since the update I haven't had a single one. I don't know if it's just not working or what. But, when you scroll your mouse over each little icon in the alert bar a drop down menu occurs that tells you if you have a message, or an alert, or whatever.

Oh, wow...I wonder how your're supposed to get the drop down menus when you can't move the 'pointer' up to the message bar? Excellent question.

I find this forum very easy to use on the app and difficult on the computer. this cool maybe because I don't see well and I'm not great with computers. I love the app but if I want to search for a specific topic I will use the computer.

Ya, cuz I really miss alerts.. I now have no clue if someone quotes me or tags me .. :(
Yeah it's different, I'm using an iPhone and the only way I can tell if I have alerts is if I go to my account underneath the search icon (the 3 horizontal lines on the right top corner) & then go under alerts vs. when it automatically alerts me!! I miss that bar too in the top!

I know if somebody quoted me or like to me etc. because it comes up under notifications when I first enter the app. Are you guys talking about something different?I also have an iPhone.

Well I guess I'm not alone in this issue, I didn't even think about mobile browser, but can imagine that problem. And especially so since I have such little internal memory for my phone I try to use web over app downloads any day, although I do have our app and wouldn't trade that, since it gives me notifications to the phone.

Does anyone else using a computer have the browser minimize every time you post a reply or thread? This one is just weird but I've noticed it since right after the update. Running internet explorer here... I'll have to check on my laptop on chrome and firefox, it doesn't really cause problems its just a minor annoyance, its like its telling me to get back to work :p:rolleyes:
