New site seems to be working really well. I've only used it for it's most basic features, but seems to be good.

Hmm...

It doesn't like embedded videos in this forum, but I can start/post in other forums and embed videos just fine... but I cannot find a setting to control this on a per-forum basis. I've put in a support ticket to find out what is going on.

Which forum are you trying to post a video in?

I tried in the Sleaze (Santa Cruz thread) forum. I think the site might have even changed the link I posted before the site update from embedded video to just a text of the link but I'm not 100% sure.

Thanks

I just went in and edited your post. When I copied and pasted your links, it converted them to videos immediately.

Were you copying them from the address bar in your browser or somewhere else?

It looks like if the forum detects that you are pasting in rich text, it leaves the Youtube link as a link. You may get a popup asking "Paste as plain text instead?". If you say yes, it then autoconverts to a video.

Somehat confusing and inconsistent... ick.

Testing 1... 2... 3...

Testing to see whether a newbie account can reply to this topic, as CureTheSane was having issues.

Yep. Seems to work.

The new Forum is great, but there is one thing that I miss from the old one. I absolutely love the new "recent post" column on the Home page, but we don't have a "recent topic posted" column anymore. It's was great to see at a glance what new topics have been posted. I find that now if there has been a few comments posted I tend miss new topics and I have to go looking to see if any new ones have been added. Is that something you could implement Dan?  No biggie, i'm just a lazy cunt.

actually I can see that you can click the arrow in the quoted text box which takes you back to the original post - is that the way it works now? 

Glen,

I'll be honest, I don't visit forums (including this one) on my phone. With my old eyes and fat fingers, it's not worth the frustration. Maybe some of the other more savvy mobile users can help you.

I can't find a thing anymore with this new search. Not only does it not find anything you know is there, even after waiting to do another search I get that "please wait XX seconds to do another search". So annoying!

Ok... if you want me to look into changing things, I need SPECIFICS. Searches that you believe are failing when there are results you know exist. EXACT keywords you used.

General complaints without details give me no information to pursue problems that may (or may not) exist.

I think I might have figured it out. I was searching for Eden's Curse Cardinal thread and was coming up empty. I then noticed it was only searching in the site feedback forum for some reason. So I had to check every forum to get it to work.

    • They always have at least a handfull of good songs on each album, I'm not overwhelmed by those first two singles though. Jesper Binzer's (vocalist) solo record "Dying is Easy" from 2017, is better than every D-A-D realease post "Everything Glows" imo.

    • Legendary - pedestrian modern country song which Jon is unable to elevate due to vocal limitations. A weak song made even worse by the inclusion of unnecessary/annoying whoa's.   We Made It Look Easy - another modern country song, I don't mind this one, it's pleasant enough but the song never really elevates   Living Proof - a rare up tempo song, this one has a good chorus probably the best chorus from Jon in almost 20 years, the weak vocals prevent it from being an anthem, and I don't like the talkbox on the song, I know Jon has become allergic to guitars but he shouldn't have buried the riff with the talkbox.   Waves - I don't mind it, another pleasant country song but jon does sound awful on the bridge. Seeds - bores me to tears Kiss the Bride - poor Stephanie. The People's House - does nothing for me Walls of Jericho - harmless and catchy, I don't mind it. I Wrote You a Song - decent melody, I don't mind it. Living in Paradise - milquetoast My First Guitar - Jon is in love with his first guitar, but as mentioned before Jon has become allergic to guitars so this song is kind of ironic. Another song I find a chore to get through. Interesting he should mention Kiss as their song Forever is much better than anything on this album.   Hollow Man - can't stand this singer/songwriter crap jon does, a hard pass. That Was Then, This Is Now - another boring modern country song, with vocals flatter than a pancake.                                                
    • Album out August 23rd. From Frontiers: During Jon Anderson’s 39-year Rock and Roll Hall of Fame career as the lead vocalist of YES, he was seen as one of the leading proponents of the Progressive Rock movement. During his tenure with YES, he recorded 19 studio albums and multiple live albums, many of which have been certified gold and platinum. Albums such as The “YES” album, “Fragile”, “Close to the Edge”, “Tales of Topographic Oceans”, and “90125” remain classic albums to this day. Songs such as “Roundabout”, “Yours is No Disgrace”, “And You and I”, “Going for the One”, “Awaken”, and “Owner of a Lonely Heart” were staples on Active Rock radio throughout the 70’s and 80’s. While still a member of YES, Jon released multiple solo records and collaborations, the most noteworthy being his 4 albums with Greek composer Vangelis Upon leaving YES in 2008, Jon continued releasing multiple solo records and collaborations. In 2023, after connecting with a group of New York musicians called The Band Geeks, Jon embarked on a summer of 2023 tour performing 2 hours of YES epics and classics. With The Band Geeks, Jon found a group of musicians that he felt could collaborate with him to create a body of work that rivaled the classic YES sound of the 70’s and 80’s. The result of this collaboration is “True”, Jon’s debut album for Frontiers Records. The 9-song album harkens back to the sound of classic YES and features compositions of all lengths with the centerpiece being the 16 minute song “Once Upon a Dream”. Jon and The Band Geeks will be supporting the new album with extensive touring TRACKLIST: 1. True Messenger 2. Shine On 3. Counties And Countries 4. Build Me An Ocean 5. Still A Friend 6. Make It Right 7. Realization Part Two 8. Once Upon A Dream 9. Thank God      
    • I used to listen to their '89 and '91 albums a lot but every try to get used to their newer outputs didn't work. Now I took some time again to listen to their last few albums and somehow I started loving them. Not every song but 70-80% on each album, which is quite a lot. I'm very excited for "Speed of Darkness". The first two songs are good (not as good as my favourites on the last albums, though but a good start). In "The ghost" I sometimes feel like the voice is a bit late here and there, which is something that I notice pretty often recently. Don't know why that happens (e.g. the new Kissin Dynamite songs, Autumn's child the last two albums, Lordi sometimes on the last album). I hope it's only in that song.
    • Holy shit. Get with the fuckin' times!            I also wanna know.
    • Ya I bought the cassettes of them when they came out & I still have them but I played the first one so much the tape got funny ...lol. The CD's sound good.
