Ahhh, no one really likes change, do they? I think everyone will get used to the site and how it is now!

I'm still really missing the "go to next active thread" button that used to exist at the bottom of every thread, no matter the forum.

I'm not seeing a way to jump from one thread to the next without going back to the base forum. Can this be addressed, @Angie?
I never knew that button existed. I wonder how many people used it?

Did you never actually scroll to the bottom of a thread? It definitely used to be there and was soooo very useful for checking forums with many active threads since the last time you checked.

I just saw that my supporting membership payment was cancelled. Do I need to set one up again? Or what's going on?

We are changing over from Mike's account to the new account. We will be working on things for a couple of days.

Why are there rate limits on posting and PMs? I can understand this for guest accounts, or even newer accounts, but supporter accounts and accounts with high message numbers and reaction scores shouldn't be rate limited.

Yeah! This is kinda a pain when we're in the spam thread, or even replying quickly to someone's post. I've been getting the 'slow down, cowboy'-type of message a couple times. Also painful when PMing multiple people/groups.

I agree.

On a similar topic, I believe I should still be an EB Supporter, at least until April. But it doesn't appear that I am. How do I go about getting that status back?

I'll look into that right now.

ETA: You're now set until 6/25/21 to give a little leeway on that April setting.

What spam thread? I'll have to check that out.

And I've changed the setting for some of the more seasoned accounts and Supporters to not have the flood check on them. Leaving the 30 second delay on the new registrations, etc.

According to legend. When engineers take the Professional Engineering licensure exam, NCEES (the org that administers the exam) won't release the results until our "spam thread" reaches 15,000 replies. :)

We do this for every test. Start a thread called the spam thread and post anything and everything until the exam results are released.
It's good spam... not bad spam. :)
