There is a bit of news regarding the work to fix the problems with iV since the "upgrade" of a year ago.

"You'll now find in your profile, below Your Recent Posts (which refers to threads started), a section called Your Recent Comments. This will show you all the comments you've made, along with the author (OP) and the date you posted to it. 

The mobile site has been removed so if you're on a smaller screened computer/tablet, or a smart phone (iphone, android, ipad, galaxy tab) you'll now see the full desktop site."

The full post can be found here.

I browse too, and it's so sad to see everything dying.  But you gottan admit, IV has NOT helped the situation.  Besides all the technical problems, there are people selling stuff EVERYWHERE.  I understand that there are very few CLs and CM left, (which is ALSO IV's fault), but come on already!!!  Pay a LITTLE attention.  And then there's the omnicent nanny.  I tried to post something the other day, and I was prohibited because I had used an "objectionable" word.  Well, I sat there for half an hour trying to figure out what it was, since as far as I was concerned, there was NOTHING objectionable in the post.  Not even a c**p or a dam.  It finally thrned out to be "another-word-for-kitty"foot.  How RIDICULOUS.

I am glad too we  have stuck with it.  This is the only board I bother to be on now.  And however it's happened, I can now get on to post with no or little problem - so I am happy at that.

These two little "fixes" hardly count as progress in my book....I posted it mainly so people would know about the mobile issue. They absolutely need to fix the problems that arose from the "upgrade" of over a year ago, if they could just fix those and not try to upgrade anything it would be good.

I don't know how much you browse around the boards anymore, but many boards have withered and died. In some cases the board community relocated to another site like Facebook, and others just fell apart because members could not consistently get on to post and encountered problems when they could get on. I'm not sure how our board has survived, possibly because the core group is so longstanding, maybe because we are of a generation that was raised to regard patience and perseverance as virtues lol. I think that the fact that most of us use "old school" desktop computers has helped...the members who use tablets and smartphones have had the most problems.

Whatever the reason, I am glad that you ladies have stuck with it!

Thanks Elspeth-except recent history has shown the more they try to "Fix the Boards" the more problems we have. So hopefully this time all will go smoothly.
