Change in Preferences here?
I always had the Lounge postings hidden from the Latest page. Then a Lounge post showed up just now.

I went to my Preferences and couldn't find the option to hide the Lounge forum. Looks like the admins are tweaking unless I looked in the wrong place.

1. I have Lounge blocked here on DU2 for LBN...and still don't see any of Lounge posts...but,
I'm wondering if you hit the "back button" after reading on DU2 and that will automatically take you to DU-3. You might have been hitting DU-3 "LBN" and not known it? :shrug:

See the "Shitty G" thread posted by snooper 2.
And at the top of the page I get the notice that I'm viewing an obsolete version of DU.

3. Here's what I get from DU-2's LBN:
(I can't do screen shot...just cut and past)...It looks like you are on "DU-3" though from what your screenshot shows."

4. It's not the LBN page - I'm at the "Latest" or "Discuss" page
Edited on Thu Dec-22-11 02:32 PM by eleny
The page that shows all the latest threads posted. Hope this helps.

My screen capture is from the "Latest Discussion Threads - Page 1"

7. The "Shitty G" post in the Lounge might be showing up because it was originally in GD???
Just a guess...

8. Thanks, that must be the reason
But I also don't see the option to keep from seeing Lounge threads hidden in the "Latest Threads" list. That used to be a choice in my Preferences page. Do you know if that choice has recently been removed from DU2?

9. I don't know the answer to that one.
But can say that I haven't noticed any changes in functionality in my own use of DU-2.

I never changed settings much, pretty stock. I always used the Top Tens view as my "home page", and I always sort threads by start time.

Interesting at DU-3: You can sort by start time but the setting doesn't stick, it goes back to default "last reply" order on its own.

:hi:

10. Thanks a bunch!
Looks like there's bugs to fix in their new software.

11. My settings haven't changed, either
But I'm using Firefox 3.6 in Linux, so that could be one reason...?
