Re: OFF TOPIC Cafe: "The Pensieve"

Yes; there are definitely changes happening now, Molly and Psychee--I can see them now, too.  Hopefully, things will settle down soon!  Thanks for your patience!

Re: OFF TOPIC Cafe: "The Pensieve"

Thanks for the hints Psychee.  I re-bookmarked and it seems to work, whereas the old one just doesn't work.

 

As to why the changes are only getting to me now...well, this IS Canada :smileywink: 

 

More changes today from the last time I logged in too, I have to hunt for the quote post and other buttons.  Oh well, no doubt I'll get used to it.

Your bookmark will work if you are already logged in.  If it is the first place you are going to, though, or have timed out on your last session, you will be redirected to the main page where you then have to log in, wait for the page to refresh, and then find the bookclub again.  It is much more tedious than it was in the past when we were automatically logged in.

 

This has been going on for months for me, Mollywobbles.  I don't know why the change has just reached you.

Re: OFF TOPIC Cafe: "The Pensieve"

Thanks Connie,  I'll get used to the changes.  Psychee's hints about the login button were spot on. I'm not sure about adding smiley faces yet-I tried the much faster keystoke, and got an invalid HMTL message-have to keep playing with that one.

I'm noticing things seem to get a little better each day, Molly.  Pretty soon, this will all feel "normal" to us again--I hope!

Re: OFF TOPIC Cafe: "The Pensieve"

Testing.... Board acting funny... acts like I'm not logged in.... no "new messages" column...  trying to post to see if the system will let me.  Interesting... as soon as I  clicked on "reply" the system recognized me again!

Is the Maintenance Realm a nice place?  Or is it like Askaban?

No one really knows what the Maintenance Realm is really like, but some have conjectured that it is like being in a sterile environment on a UFO ship with a bunch of nerdy looking aliens keeping them all in line in binary order.

Re: OFF TOPIC Cafe: "The Pensieve"

It is a very nice place. There are shelving units all around and there is no musty smell like in most maintenance realms.

Re: OFF TOPIC Cafe: "The Pensieve"

Mollywobbles, I have now lost my adjective and am no longer "Distinguished" or even a "Correspondent".  Today they are calling me a "Wordsmith".   Do you think that's a euphemism for a "Chatty Cathy"?   :smileyhappy:

Re: OFF TOPIC Cafe: "The Pensieve"

Connie, is there any chance that you could un-anchor the old OFF Topic thread so that it falls back to page 2?  I keep clicking on it by mistake!

 

Also, after experiencing much rudeness on another B & N board, I just want to thank you profusely for doing such a great job at keeping our little community here so enjoyable and respectful of one another.   One never fully appreciates what one has until it is no longer there, I guess!  A good moderator makes all the difference in the world!   Two thumbs up for you!

 If I may jump in here, ... For what it's worth, at the cube farm where I come from "wordsmith" means too many people  sitting around a 12' conference table, trying to come to agreement on the exact wording of the department's Mission Statement, or document they think is vitally important, but which no one else will ever take seriously, much less read.  Dilbert followers will understand immediately. 

 

 "Wordsmiths" can be identified by their tendency to attempt to clarify a sentence by making it longer.

 

I doubt that that is what B&N intended.

That's too bad, Psychee. Sorry people feel the need to be rude, and especially to you as you help everyone all the time. Perhaps a few of us could run a stealth mission to that board and drop a few close but not quite unforgivable curses. Anyone else game?

Well, bless your heart! (You, too TB!)   (Added - and you, too, Jules!)    I'd be really careful, though. Based upon how my neck feels after one of these encounters, it seems like I'm being attacked by a female form of Fenrir Greyback over there who is uber-protected by .... hmmm -- maybe Tiggerbear can come up with the right character for the "protector"?  I'm thinking along the lines of Wormtail...    :smileyhappy:
