I looked over the whole site including my profile to find the smileys word to check out and couldn’t find it. I didn’t realize that it was only visible when one is writing a post.
I never found it there either. :(

Yeah, Mriana, I didn’t even realize there were cats in your avatar until you mentioned it and I looked very closely.
I’m wondering what happened during the upload process.
That’s rediculous. I tried to upload a new one and I keep ending up with the same one only a different size. So, I tried removing the old one and uploaded from scratch. Well, guess what? It’s not the new one I uploaded, but the size of the new one instead.
OK, I know this topic is “sticky” but why is the little golden square to the left indicating unread posts also sticky? This is the third time I’ve checked this topic with no new posts, but the square doesn’t turn to tan.
I just found another difference. When one was writing a response in the old program, one could scroll down to read the other posts to assure accuracy in what one was writing. Now, we can’t see the foregoing posts while we are writing our response. This is a definite disability in the new system, and I hope it can be fixed.
I second that too. It makes it frustrating to post then edit because you realized there was something else you wanted to reply to, but don’t want to double post either. So, you have to go back to re-read what was said, copy, click the edit button, and paste to quote what you wanted to reply to in someone elses post. This leaves the edit note of course, but I’m less concerned with that than I am of going back and forth to collect quotes of what I am referring to if they are in different posts. If one post, I can just hit the quote button and go from there. Still it’s not the same.
I know this is really nitpicking, and it probably doesn’t even apply to those who have new fangled DSL or cable connections, but with dial-up the time after clicking on Smileys until they actually show up so we can select one is interminable. There is a nice, large gray space in the block to the left that says Message and Smileys. How about asking the programmers who wrote this to display the smileys there instead of as a separate file that has to be accessed? That way, we could just click on them quickly, then get on with our posts.
Another user-unfriendly glitch: A new member sent me a PM asking if I was the same person she remembered from another forum. I responded in a PM that I was, then tried to send her a confirming e-mail. I wrote a short message then clicked on send. At that point it disappeared and I was informed that I had to enter a subject. I did so, but MY MESSAGE HAD BEEN ERASED. So I had to write it again. How about just asking for the subject WITHOUT erasing the message.
And by the way, “Your message has been successfully sent” is a split infinitive. It should have been, “Your message has been sent successfully.”
