(And welcome back -pilgrim-!) :o)

Muokkaaja: tammikuu 23, 2021, 11:41 pm

Ooops. Double post!

Muokkaaja: tammikuu 24, 2021, 3:15 am

>1 clamairy: Count me not a fan of the new position and size of the "Leave Group" button. I expect to be popping in and out of the pub repeatedly, as my finger hits it when scrolling...

tammikuu 23, 2021, 11:42 pm

>3 -pilgrim-: I suspect you won't be alone!

Muokkaaja: tammikuu 24, 2021, 5:18 am

>4 clamairy: I can confirm that. I apparently am no longer a group member. When I read the above posts I went to the Group Page to see what the Leave Button looked like and I could only see "Join" and "Watch". Checked my profile and Green Dragon is not on my list of groups. Expect my application to join in the post.

I appear to be back in from the cold.

tammikuu 24, 2021, 5:47 am

>5 pgmcc: My first departure occurred when the new format was introduced. No action required - as I described at the time. Since MrsLee reported the same result, I suspect it happened to anyone who was in the pub (i.e. had a thread open) at the time of the changeover.

Or maybe Rosie was in a huff with us all?

tammikuu 24, 2021, 7:52 am

Welcome, pgmcc!

tammikuu 24, 2021, 8:32 am

>7 MrAndrew: Thank you! The Group members seem really friendly. It’s like meeting old friends all over again.

Muokkaaja: helmikuu 3, 2021, 7:04 am

I can confirm my theory.

Yesterday we had the pleasure of the old Groups page, so I was active in catching up reading here. Then differently suddenly we switched back to the "improved version" (the one stripped of all useful information) - and I am booted out of the GD again.

It's not a miskey of mine. If you are in the group page when they reset their system, you get booted out of the group.

Oh, well.

Hello everybody, I Am Pilgrim.

helmikuu 3, 2021, 4:59 am

>9 -pilgrim-: Hmmmz. I haven't had that, but what I have had repeatedly over the last few days is glacially slow service and frequent complaints that Firefox "can't find the \Librarything\ server".

helmikuu 3, 2021, 7:06 am

It's in a secret bunker.

helmikuu 3, 2021, 9:44 am

I get the old format when I first arrive to the group, but as soon as I post in a thread, it switches to the new one. If I could just keep my mouth closed...

Muokkaaja: helmikuu 2, 2022, 12:25 pm

I'm not seeing it on my phone, but I'm pretty sure I saw an option to view groups in the old style on my desktop yesterday.

It's the 'n' in the link that is causing the issues.

helmikuu 3, 2021, 10:56 am

>13 clamairy: I only use a phone, so I cannot comment on effects on a PC.

Hi! I am "back" somewhat. I'm not a daily reader of threads, and I do not read as much as I used to, but if you are interested look for maggie1944, and you could find it either here in Green Dragon or over at 75 Books.

heinäkuu 9, 2021, 9:15 pm

>25 Meredy: BookWormWillow joined the Facebook group, at least! It's a start.

And welcome back (again) Meredy and -pilgrim-...

syyskuu 10, 2021, 3:07 pm

>27 clamairy: Thanks. I didn't mean to leave. I tried that one button ("Joined") to see what would happen, and it ditched me out of the group without warning. Bad design change, if you ask me.

syyskuu 11, 2021, 5:54 am

Could have been worse. You could have ended up a siamese twin. You could have had all your books fused together. You could have become a member of a cult.

Don't press the "eject" button, please.

syyskuu 12, 2021, 8:36 pm

>28 Meredy: I agree.
>29 MrAndrew: Must. Press. The. Button. I speak from experience, only I pressed the red button in my new car.

syyskuu 12, 2021, 9:48 pm

>29 MrAndrew: >30 MrsLee: Thanks.

>27 clamairy: What was wrong with "Leave group"? It seems like an imperative verb of intended action would communicate results much more effectively than a past participle (without a subject) that expresses an action already performed. If I did want to leave the group, why would I click "Joined"? I hope the interface designer will reconsider.

syyskuu 12, 2021, 11:31 pm

>31 Meredy: If you are already a member, the button says, "Joined". Hover your pointer over the button and it changes to, "Leave Group". I assume the button says, "Join Group", for anyone that is not yet a member...?

I agree setting it up this way was a terrible interface design decision.

syyskuu 13, 2021, 10:54 am

>32 ScoLgo: Yes, it's terrible, but I'm sure it was set up 15 years ago before anyone was using smart phones or tablets to navigate LT.

>31 Meredy: Perhaps you could send a note to one of the site admins.

syyskuu 13, 2021, 8:42 pm

>33 clamairy: Sure. How do I find them?

joulukuu 16, 2022, 2:35 pm

>51 haydninvienna: I'm waiting for ookla_the_mok to post!

joulukuu 16, 2022, 7:30 pm

>50 MrAndrew: Might be interesting to see if any of us noticed something fishy.

joulukuu 16, 2022, 7:33 pm

>49 clamairy: As an admin now of a much, much smaller and quieter group, I feel your pain. I find it depressing to keep welcoming folks who never seen to exist in the talk threads. Hello? Is anyone really there? :)

Muokkaaja: joulukuu 16, 2022, 8:30 pm

>54 MrsLee: I believe a very small percentage lurk, but the majority join and then never come back. It's very sad.

joulukuu 17, 2022, 3:19 am

I prefer to think that it's an exclusive club. Or that i'm scaring people away. It's important to have a belief system that reinforces your sense of worth.

joulukuu 17, 2022, 6:32 am

>56 MrAndrew: You might be onto something... (The exclusivity, not the scary part.)

joulukuu 17, 2022, 7:15 am

There's probably a way for Tim & Co to see which GD members are on line but not posting. Maybe still wouldn't know which of the groups they were looking at though. I remember that a while ago I worked out that basically the whole of the posting activity in the GD was from about 30 people. I think pretty well all of them except Bookmarque and majkia have appeared in this thread.

Muokkaaja: joulukuu 17, 2022, 8:52 am

>58 haydninvienna: We do have a few that come and go... and then come back again. I'm hoping a few more drift back in when they retire.

joulukuu 18, 2022, 5:14 am

I plan on posting a lot more after i pass away.

>58 haydninvienna: i read that as "I think pretty well of all of them except Bookmarque and majkia ", which seemed quite out of character.

Muokkaaja: joulukuu 18, 2022, 9:18 am

>60 MrAndrew: Hey! I'm happy with both reading


I agree with >60 MrAndrew: : his alternative reading would indeed have been out of character.

joulukuu 18, 2022, 8:28 am

>60 MrAndrew: Zombie posts. That would be new... I think.

joulukuu 18, 2022, 9:19 am

>61 haydninvienna: Just to make it abundantly clear: I think the world of all Dragoneers, specifically including Bookmarque and Majkia. Once again, apologies for my carelessness in posting a smart-arse reply when I should have taken a few more seconds to think.

>55 clamairy: I'll drop a line here every now and then.

This group name intrigued me.

I kicked off writing the plot outline of a fantasy dragon novella collaboratively, and we exchanged a lot of ideas how to do it remotely.

But it never gained traction during the good writing months of covid, and now we've gone back to semi-normal lives after lockdown ended together with Work-from-home, so it's just the germ of a dormant idea.

huhtikuu 18, 5:33 am

i'm going to assume that's a novella written by a fantasy dragon.

huhtikuu 19, 1:14 am

The Green Dragon welcomed logicalwillow.

huhtikuu 22, 1:26 am
