Update! If I've asked a question that requires a response, please feel free to PM me so we can talk about your issue some more. We want to make sure everyone is being helped in a timely manner. I know we all what the features to work like we need them to to so we can start settling down in our new home!
One of the primary issues we've been working on is the disappearing smilie issue from our signatures. We're working as fast as we can to get this fixed.
We are also working on the smilie popup being too large on particular resolution monitors.
"When you hover over Forums at the top, a drop down menu appears where you are supposed to click on the forum you want. If I use this menu as soon as I load the page, it works fine. But if I scroll down to read something, then back up to use the menu, the menu appears with a big space between the word Forums and the menu. When the mouse goes into that space, the menu disappears, so it is impossible to use the menu. I am adding a screenshot to show what I mean.
Are you scrolling down with a scroll wheel on a mouse? The menu is supposed to disappear any time you are not moused over it.
I also discovered (while trying to add said screenshot) that when I hit the image button to add an image to my post, the whole screen greyed out, but the image choosing box was not on the screen. I scrolled waaaaaaay up and eventually found it appeared from the BOTTOM of the screen as I scrolled UP. Then after adding the photo I have to scroll way back down to see the post editor again. I am using the post editor at the bottom of the thread. Weird.
I have Windows 7 and Chrome 7.0.517.44 (up to date)."
Developers have this on their to-fix list. Thanks for mentioning it!
Thanks for posting to let us know; we are fixing this.
...that explanation did not get me forum subscriptions working in any way I can use. I can sort by forum, but then when I click on my subscriptions, it just lists all the thread in the forum, not providing just a simple link to the forum with maybe an indication of the most recent thread there.
We are in discussion to see if we can have this feature enhanced in the future.
When I went to Your Recent Activity in My Profile, I then tried clicking Forums. I got a listing of wikis I've created. When I click on Wikis, I get "We couldn't find any content for this page."
This sounds like likely you may have possibly turned off all of the filters on the activity feed. The dot next to Forums or Wikis should be green if this channel is "turned on" in the activity feed. It will be gray if it is turned off. Our best guess is that this you may have turned off all the content types Products, Forums, Wikis and Profiles which then resulted in the "no content found" error message.
I added a smilie to one of my posts, and after I clicked on the one I wanted, I got a blank grey screen. It turned out to be a big grey area underneath the rest of the page, and scrolling up took me back to see my post.
Can you let us know what browser and O/S, please?
I posted about the space above the drop down forum menu when scrolling earlier, I noticed this applies to the drop down under each posters name too. It makes them unclickable. Windows 7 and Chrome.
We're working to fix this, thank you for letting us know.
I almost always browse MDC using the "All New Posts" option rather than going to individual sections. On the old MDC the number of new posts would vary depending on how recently I'd been on. Sometimes there'd only be 20 new posts, sometimes there'd be 362 new posts. Since the new MDC was launched there are always exactly 200. Which means that either I'm missing some (lots?) or some are being duplicated.
The All New Posts page is similar to the My Subscriptions page in that it does not currently filter down to just threads with new content since the last time you were on the site. It includes everything
which has most recently been posted to in chronological order. As an example, even if you marked everything as read, you would still see threads on the All New Posts page, they would just have unbolded titles and a gray icon next to their name indicating their "read" status. We can see if this is something we can get an enhancement for in the future.
Also, when I click on a thread in New Posts to read it, when I click back to new posts after reading the thread the page of New Posts has all different threads in it. Is New Posts being updated while I'm reading a thread? And is there any way to stop that happening?
When you reload the New Posts page, it should update with all the latest content. Unfortunately there is no way to "pause" the page.
When clicking on "New Posts" the 200 most recent posts come up and they all show the "new posts" icon" whether there have been new posts or not
The New Posts page should reflect both read and unread status. We are seeing though that the page does have to be refreshed after you view a thread and then go back to the New Posts page. Without a reload, the icon will remain the same.
it is new posts but the same ones over and over again every time i go to the next page to see more. then if i click on a thread to read it, and then try to go back to new posts, the new posts page is refreshed. i want to look at one list of new posts. if i want to refresh the list i would click the all new post button again. but i dont. i want to read ALL the new posts as they are the one time i asked for them.
Given the volume of content being created at MDC, threads do turn over very quickly. We are working with the developers to see what solutions we can come up with to offer everyone a more meaningful new post feature.

When I am quoting a post to reply to,
A Paragraph marker is not being added to the end of the code. so I have been adding one using the source window, and then switching back to normal view.
This issue was one Firefox was working on with their Firefox 3.6.11 release, and I've been told the most updated version is reportedly much better. Our team is still actively developing ways to work around Firefox's little quirks with our new editor. Thank you for your patience!
