Re: Community Updates - May 2020

The removal of the leaderboard could be a game changer.  No more mirror to look at.

Yes! I know it works on desktop.

 

However- I am sure there are many, like myself, that use mobile 99% of the time to post.

 

Reading the Khoros forums it appears theres a simple fix 🤔 Anyways it is what it is I guess....

Interesting changes. Although I don't get much use out of macros (cause I don't post much), still sad to see it go... Where will we store the paragraph-long copy needed for explaining how to use SIMon properly to new comers now!!?!?? 😛

 

...but seriously, it has its uses...

 

Thanks for the update though 🙂


You have the rest of today to save your macros to somewhere. 

 

Although I know about the macro at the beginning, I never use macro since I join this forum almost 2 years ago.  I don't miss this change.  This may explain why my posts are not the first reply to most of new threads. 

 

But we will still continue to see the same type of posts as before as members will cut and paste the same answer to this forum.

 

Have a better and better days!

I think the loss of macros makes it harder to bother with the constant, repetitive questions. I have a lost/stolen - $1 macro and APN gishan link / plain info. (and others that I have not used for a while...perhaps coinciding with my lower participation ).

 

I think the Retired Oracle moniker is great.

 

I don't mind the leaderboard not being easily available. I like the surprise early in the month. I used to be obsessed about trying to be sure I was in the top 1%...but not so much anymore.

Re: Community Updates - May 2020

This is welcome news, because the numbers on the leaderboard reflected how many bravoes were giving out, and on some posts that had one-word answers would get many bravos, while an Oracle who answers the post clearly gets one. 

 

Macros? People will find different ways to copy and paste the responses, I don't think that'll be a big difference-maker, but, it may slow them down by a few seconds. 

 

Looking forward to the changes!

Don't think it will change anything. The fix is easy just count Real Bravoes.

 

Real Bravoes = Bravoes Received - Bravoes Given.

 

It's no secret around here and has been mentioned in previous threads. Give out as many  bravoes as you can, hope to receive back 60 - 90% of them. Post to as many threads as possible even after the solution has been given and collect your awards.

 

Now if PM were to implement Real Bravoes the above strategy goes out the window.

Re: Community Updates - May 2020

Do we still have to juggle between the community site, the account site, and e-mail every time we talk to a mod or is everything still disconnected?
