I did a tour of the new Agingcare website and I don't think I like it.


First and most important, my head got cut off in the profile picture, only the torso is showing. That's not very nice. At all. Looks are very important, even to a polar bear. It took me a long time to pose for that picture. haha


Second, when I see an interesting question or discussion, and don't have any relevant answer or comment to add, but would like to read what others have to say, I can just click "Follow" and that tread will appear on my Follow list. The new Agingcare website doesn't have it. Why? That feature is very useful for a newbie like me.


Third, I prefer the large blue font type of the old site. Much easier to read. The new site has light smaller font size on a light blue background. Not as easy to read.


Whoever in charge of Agingcare website, can you fix the above?


Thanks

Done it! It's under Mental Health - perhaps not the ideal category but I couldn't find another that was general enough.

D'oh! - why don't we just do it?

I'll start a discussion thread called 'On My Mind' and if the moderators don't like it they can always close it down. Wish me luck..!

Any chance of bringing back

When I last posted here before Oct 12th, I saw the Recent Activity at the way bottom of scrolling on the Newsfeed. Today, it's right there on the right side page - as the old website pattern. I like that so much better than scrolling to the bottom to find it. I know, old news....

No spinning here, but happy to see the new main page. It is much more user friendly IMO.

Logged in out of sheer curiosity.

I'm not sure I've got a bundle. They certainly don't seem to have refreshed anything, not even my memory. And I will now be wondering all day long what the heck a Roaming WAP is and whether I'd like it if I were ever to use it.

And I wonder why, every single day, I get notifications that some number number s apps have been updated. Every day? And I do not have that many apps on it. 😉

Timely reminder of why I really should shut up about tech questions.

I have just had a text from my cellphone providers. It says: "Hi. We've refreshed your bundle using your top-up credit. To see your refresh date and allowances, register or login at etc."

I do not have the first idea of what they are talking about or why they are telling me this.

I've had the spinning cursor a couple of times when I began to make a post but changed my mind, I guess it was waiting for me to finish? If you are logged in automatically you could try logging out to see if that helps.

LOL, CM!

I will have to deal with it later. It is only the AC site. Must think about getting up, 4am here and mom going day! So.much to do. And only my laptop.

Mom going day? Moving day! 😌

H'm. Is it doing it on any other websites?

Oh crumbs! - like *I'd* ask me about anything techie! Do you have anyone handy who can give the laptop a cuddle and say 'there there' to it? Give its memory a bath, or feed it some anti-virus linctus, I don't know what you're supposed to do with the wretched little creatures.

Doesn't happen on anything other than my laptop, running Windows 10. Happens even on a fresh boot, CM. Just very irritating.

Mom going day? Moving day!

Glad I think this might be your computer/device having a tantrum. Or gearing up for one. You've tried the usual? Quitting your browser, rebooting, threats and menaces..?

Why does my spinner keep spinning unless my cursor is in a paragraph written by someone. It spins even when cursor is between paragraphs. Very irritating. Anyone else?

It took about ten minutes to post the Site acting up! The keyboard would go on, then off, then on, in rapid succession. Then my kindle would crash! Frustrating!

glad...Yesterday I had problems when "Tech difficulties" came up and I couldn't get to my Newsfeed,so I went to the searchbar and typed in stuff like "Caregivers behaving Badly" and "My whine Moment" and a few people and all that came up so I could still continue to write and post.Maybe this would work for you too.
Today though,I'm back in business thankfully.Good luck~

So glad to see Recent Forum Activity back on the my News Feed page, Thank you.

old sailor - you can choose to see "Newest First" or Oldest First". Look to the right of "Comments" where it says show "Oldest First" and a down arrowhead (V) Click on the V to make your choice.

Not really. The answers to questions are backwards. I don't like reading from the back of the book to the front. The first answer is somewhere near what should be the most recent answer.

All in all great improvements! Much less cumbersome too navigate. Now if I could just type as fast on my tablet as I can on my typewriter.😉

Thanks for bringing Recent Forum Activity! I just happened to stumble it tonight as I kept scrolling down from my Newsfeed. 😊👍

p.s. I know it was brought up earlier but I didn’t take the time to find where it is.

Another thread resurrected that has been dormant since April.
IMO 180 days is way too long to wait before closing a thread, anything that hasn't been active for 3 or 4 months isn't likely to be still relevant - if someone wants to post updated info they can always start a new thread and post links to the old one.

I'm with MountainMoose and I'm glad about this list version too.It is easier and clearer.Thanks a lot~

Thank you for going back to the lists version! It's so much easier and I find I study the list more.

Others below mention the "Discussion" and "Questions" sections. Is it possible to get rid of those and just have one list? I don't care if it's a question or a discussion; I just look for topics that are interesting, pertinent, or something I can contribute to or help with.

Thank you for this change.

While reviewing NEW FORMAT #2, I notice that there are at least 5 "Discussions" listed under "Need Advice" that have been there for over 4 hours and have ZERO or 1 comment.  Is it because the original poster put their post under "Discussions" when they should have put them under "Questions”??? Or did these postings get overlooked on the NEW AC website?   Some of these sound familiar so I don’t know if they were also posted in the “Questions Forum” also and that more people commented on those postings.

In the forum area, thoughts about listing questions and discussions side by side? I do like the list better, haven't check on my phone yet.

I hope the new format is working for our mobile device users - any comments?

I've noticed that the AC articles don't seem to have a place to make comments any more - the links will tell you there are XX# of comments but once you go to the article there is no sign of them.🤔😕
