Nobody's transferred status over, everybody starts over again as Kitty Litter. Chivo has been pretty active on here

Polls can be made in General and Toy areas of the boards. Click on "Post Reply" and at the bottom of the page it'll give instructions on how to make a poll

Thank you for the prompt response ..my bad on the posting question as you are correct. 

Regarding Polls .. I made a poll already and it is running in the deplume photo thread .. however seems  I can not edit it ?

"As with posts, polls can only be edited by the original poster, a moderator, or board administrator. To edit a poll, click the first post in the topic, which always has the poll associated with it. If no one has cast a vote then users can delete the poll or edit any poll option. However, if people have already placed votes only moderators or administrators can edit or delete it; this is to prevent people rigging polls by changing options mid-way through a poll"

Would you be able to add DIY, Sombre and Dead dePlume for me ?

Like these polls mean anything but fun anyways. I mean even if someone were to rig a poll or their post status Wink Wink does it really mean anything? Unless 3A uses these polls to see a figure's popularity and use that stat to create the next figure.

Anyway to make bold the thread the day it has a new post like on the old site. Very handy to see right away if that thread is active that day.

This site keeps auto launching the App Store whenever I check out the site on my iPhone, Sending me to the App Store download page of whatever worthless shitty app is being pushed at the top of each page.
I get that this is a "free" site.. I'd get it if I actually click the banner.. But the auto launching makes me want to throw mY phone at old ladies in rage. Is there any way to move it or tinker with the obtrusive ads on this thing?

I was checking couple of times from my iPhone and iPad and didn't stumble upon any major issues.

I'll check again right now.

Update:

Just checked and didn't notice any problems. Is it happening by any chance when you are browsing as "guest"?

No Dan, I'm logged in and everything. It happens almost immediately when I access the site and as I navigate around it. As well as almost every time I load a new page or topic.
To be honest, I've not noticed it happening at this rate before.. I think the other day it popped open the app once. But today, it's literally unusable.
Not only does it open the App store.. it navigates me away from the forums to a url that says something like (i'm not looking at my phone right now) www.navsales.. or something like that. It's basically a blank page.. but when that site opens up, it opens up the app store. If I hit the back button to try to get back to the forums.. it just refreshes and gets caught in a loop of trying to re-navigate to that page and reopen the app store.

Anyway.. if I'm somehow unique in experiencing this headache.. I'll try clearing my cache/cookies and see if that fixes it.

Just checked the site, while logged in, using Safari on my iPhone and iPad and noticed when the mobile site loads there is a flashing banner ad (right under the header) disguised as the user control panel that gives the appearance I have new message. When clicked it causes a pop up (with no option to close it, the window or the program/browser) that claims I've won a free computer and opens up a site asking for personal information.

This new site utilises the trackers Add This, Propeller Ads, and Criteo.

Thank you for feedback.

I saw different banners, but only in "Guest" mode...maybe these ads are targeted geographically and nobody is interested in my location.

When you go to a thread newer posts are at the bottom, you have to scroll down to read them. On the old forum it was the reverse, which was much better.

To read newer posts at the top is it something I need to do?

Yes, on the old forum whenever you went to a thread you would see the newest post first. On here it seems to be the reverse. You end up having to scroll down to see the latest posts. I have wondered whether it was something I need to do in preferences to change that.

As I mentioned there is an icon next to the username, who commented last on each topic, clicking that takes you to the last page in that topic. It's orange when there are new posts in the thread.

Can you please try that out and let me know if it helps?

Using a Surface Pro in portrait mode on the outpost is the best surfing experience I've had to date, just a tip!
