@mac_editor I deleted User Cache from the backend Dashboard. When I checked with cleared browser, your new avatar is showing up correctly.

@itsage thank you. Clearing cache on my iPad again resolved the issue. Will test on Mac once home.

Edit: Yes, all fixed on Mac as well.

@nando4 could remove usernames from software section of header. For example:

mac_editor’s purge-wrangler.sh becomes just purge-wrangler.sh. We can also remove the “apps” suffix from set-eGPU.sh.

Overall would look cleaner.

UI Suggestion: Under Avatar, only have the link around the number of builds as opposed to the title as well as that will help differentiate what is a link.

So..

Title: Link

Done, with the exception the build/post text still forms part of the URL.  So mor prevalent single-digit build count such as “1” can click on the Builds text as well instead of relying on precise navigation.

e-mail notification suggestion: change the subject from "New Reply" to something like:
[eGPU.io] thread subject

This way, I can sort by subject and delete later duplicates and just open the earliest one to visit the url.

Is someone working on the unread posts issue? It still doesn't remember what posts have been read.

@nando4 could drop "Retina" suffix in builds table for all 2013 and newer MacBook Pros, as there was no non-retina Pro released since.

Chrome login has worked well for some time.  Pls delete eGPU.io cookies and try again.

Reddit integration seems broken at the moment. I just created a new account to participate back again on this forum. But on a positive note, the password reset function works again now! 🙂

@nando4 @itsage any updates on login problems? Seems like most complaints are about this these days.

@nando4 Automatic hyperlinking of benchmark tools such as Geekbench and LuxMark. I recall there are already hyperlinks for AIDA64.

I'm using Safari in macOS Mojave 10.14.3. The post editor seems to have scrolling problems after line 15. I have to use an external editor to keep sane.
The full screen post editor seems to behave properly.

Thanks. My Mojave 10.14.3 install is on an old Mac Pro 2008 with HFS+ formatted drive so I'm not getting automatic updates. I'll have to try a manual update.

@nando4 More suggestions to consider.

Post buttons are using different color scheme vs. other buttons. Perhaps switch up colors on the post buttons and other places (right image) using the older color scheme to the new color as on Forum Activity button. This also applies to @ mentions and links in posts. We also don't need the Forum Activity button if we are not removing the Activity item from the Forum Header. If the color is too bright, consider slightly modifying RGB values for a slight variation.

 

Bad headers for small windows. Better for the website to switch to the dropdown version sooner to avoid the following problems:

Lock breadcrumb width to post width:

Implement unsubscribe/subscribe button with logo in the blue title bar itself.

Also, would be great to have statistics such as average daily viewers/traffic.

About login issues. Cloudflare CDN involved in password reset fails from some regions. Seemingly Ukraine being one of them.

Google is is still validating our site to allow Google login.  Says it may take a couple of more days.

Facebook login works. Workaround? Suggest use facebook login for now if other login methods are problematic.

@nando4 on iPad, the Online Members widget shows below the blue forum activity button, but on say a max, it shows above recent posts widget. Could we have the latter on iPad too?

@mac_editor, currently a server side checks the browser type and if it’s a mobile device it will list the Online Members at the bottom of the page. This is more handy than having to scroll past the latest replies to find the online users. The Ipad is detected as a mobile device.

Can you not set your Ipad to run in desktop mode to show in your preferred manner?

@nando4 @itsage too many adverts on the site - not liking it at all. The bottom banner ad should be removed entirely as it is prohibitive on devices such as the iPad. The ad on the bottom right overlaps some other forum components (especially on iPad, but also sometimes on Mac). Ads between posts are a bad idea as well. It was OK when ads were limited to the side and just occupied previously clear spaces. I dislike both ads and ad blockers in general. Do we really need such intrusive ads?

Have to agree with Mac_editor here, too many ads atm (especially on Chrome in Windows). 
IMO non targeted ads make me trust a website less.
Understand there are bills needing paying to keep this site up and running but maybe a donation button would be better? 

Will be sharing some new design suggestions very soon (based on survey results).

nando4>> fixed!

 


So there's this one thing that's annoyed me for awhile. It's writing text after lists as shown:

  1. Item 1
  2. Item 2

After list. Why is this line so close to the above list? Can we have more padding/margin so the distance between the end of list and this line is the same as the distance between the first line and start of list?

Otherwise I have to do something like this:

  1. Item 1
  2. Item 2

 

And add another extra line. Which I don't like.

@nando4 The header bar has an odd white bar below as shown when scrolling up. Also, maybe a white bar theme would suit the website better. The bar looks completely different from the website as is.

@mac_editor The white bar might be a margin like the left side has. I guess it makes sense to get rid of it, since the bottom doesn't have a margin.

@mac_editor, thank you for noting this visual bug on Safari. It’s fixed. Navbar dropdowns are now white. Navbar now a flat black to align with rest of site giving immediate visual separation from content as a scrollup sticky menu.

@nando4 maybe we do not need the blue highlight in the Navbar anymore (the color difference is sufficient). This should make the navbar cleaner overall as there is still a small white border to (presumably) accommodate said highlight.

Another suggestion is to possibly move the website statistics to a widget on the side/alongside/near online members maybe? Would seem relevant. The stats widget could be a simpler, smaller widget, but colorful (same color as the “liked” text on post page for example). Maybe it could look similar to the post action buttons (reply, like, etc.).

@mac_editor, thank you. The selected navbar menuitem’s background is now blue with underline removed.  The forum stat bar remains as a horizontal forum footer since a higher priority last sticky widget for non-logged in users already exists.  It is now shorter.
