Where? On the home page and in the forums the member number should appear when you move the pointer over the photo (or photo placeholder)
2) When I posted something tonight to the Orange County.... Let's guage interest in a get together thread... it looks like I posted it on ET, when I am on PT... like I am up making posts at almost 1am... NOT! Anyhow... if post times could be reflected in the time zone it was originated, versus ET, that would be great. I don't remember this ever being the case before, but maybe I did not watch it so closely.
Click on the 3 gear menu, then click on Forum Settings to change the time zone. NOTE: Most of the US time zones do not have a DST option available; if you are on Daylight Savings Time you will need to pick Standard Time for the next time zone east of yours (e.g., if you are on Pacific Daylight Time, select Mountain Standard Time. Those in the Eastern and Hawaii time zones may select the corresponding Daylight Time.
If this problem existed before the change it is unlikely most would have noticed because the time was usually displayed relative to the current time, not as an absolute value (i.e., "10 seconds ago" instead of 12:08:45 AM).
I don't know if this has to do with the new update or not, but the chat function seems to be a bit nuts today. Two issues with it.
1. it stopped working mid conversation earlier, trying to reconnect appeared successful then were not, wouldn't allow any typing and/or sharing of text.
2. Trying to initialize a chat, appears at first to go well, then pops up multiple boxes and if I click them down, it shows the person now unavailable, wait a second and try again and it appears fine, then pops up multiple boxes every time I click on something else???? Gremlins???
While I appreciate that there are a lot of details to take care of when revamping the site to the extent that is taking place, and I don't mean to nitpick .. the "eyeball" icon that is used to demonstrate online status, "viewed me" and appearance characteristics on a profile page is just plain creepy. Can we please get something else?
How about coloured lines or dots to show online status? How about an open book for "viewed me"? How about some sort of silhouette (a la the Facebook profile pic placeholder) for appearance?
I have noted that some other CM members have made similar comments about the eyeball, perhaps others have better suggestions for replacements.
Hope someone can get the bugs out of the line, so we are not left hanging.
Also, when I do use CM on my phone, it's an LG phone, I push the area I want to go to and a box highlights to show that I've pushed it but it goes up and to the right I think quite a ways, so it looks like I'm highlighting something else, but it does take me to the place that I thought I was clicking.
Possible we can be notified about "likes" on forum postings? Not necessarily who did it, but just a count and/or a notification about which posting was liked? Or is that here and I don't know where..?
The wireless internet is slower at my parents' house, so I've noticed some glitches here and there, though never those exact ones.
