Mine still says 28th but the upgrade was launched on the 29th. Curious.

It seems that all the emojis have disappeared since yesterday. Is it me or has something changed? (Desktop user).

BTW It's still showing my last visit as 28 April too.

Emojis are now accessed from a button in the posting window, alongside the image tags etc.

Have you stayed logged in?

I just logged out & in again & it sets to todays date so I think its storing your log in date rather than actual visit

Just had the same - it is storing log in rather than last visit for me.

Is this working now? I just tried a search to try and help answer a question in the Hints, Tips & Questions forum but couldn't get any results other than the latest post I was trying to answer! Scrolling through that forum I could see keywords that should have matched. I was trying to search for the word 'scanner'.

As mentioned further up, is there a way of posting photos straight from your own computer instead of just linking from online? If not is it something that could be implemented fairly easily?

cheers and well done with the update/refresh chaps.

No, as they would have to be hosted on our server and we have no desire to keep that kind of storage

It seems like all of the issues from the upgrade have been ironed out now but do we really need all of the 'Smileys & Emotions'? There's 18 that have a heart on them - do we really need them (not to mention about 40 of the others)?
Bring back the old ones I say!

It still has my last LogIn date rather than last visited date. Do I need to do something?

Andy
PS I also am inclined to agree with Big Eric about the smileys etc😉
