Ah! So Neowin wants me to prepare for my exam.. Cruel Steven!

 

Best of Luck anyway. Hope it will solve more issues than creating more.

Upgrades? Bring them on. :D

What's the worst that could happen? :shifty:

Were you not around for the original upgrade? I swear it was down for a year...

I don't remember that. I've had my account for a long time but there have been a few chunks of time when I haven't been around.

Given numerous threads about issues, are you able to state at this pre-upgrade stage what will be fixed on the day and what will overflow into days and weeks after?

Hope hopefully issues like this are fixed. This really is amateurish.

i am hoping the editor will be fixed, esp on mobile the line breaks, and quoting is bloody impossible.

also a full spy

But that's not a forum issue? It happens on Edge on W10M as well, and yea that's annoying.

Yeah its a forum issue.  This is with some small css modifications and even if the static widths and heights are automatically generated, this can be remedied with some basic JavaScript.

That looks like you're reading a news article on the front page, which is separate software to the forums

I'm reading that right from the forums, clicking on the new content star at the top to see the most recent posts. The original broken one is from the forums, the fixed one is front page.

Observe another issue I hope gets resolved. I edited this post, and it automatically attached images from another thread entirely. I don't dare delete them, because then it removes them from the other thread. Its another example of the mobile responsive issue, so it would be good to examine anyway.

Again, it was a simple css fix. If you need help, let me know. I'd be glad to point you in the right direction to fix the problem. Aside from the image issue, its the second biggest complaint I have.

Here is both the broken and fixed from the forum. The problem and fix is the same for both front page and forum.

I'm not into luck, so I won't say good luck. However, I will a send a prayer for all of those involved. :)

Exactly! I hate it when some one says good luck to me as I know what ever I'm about to do is screwed, for sure!! :)

I'd rather they say break a leg or something, so, along those lines, break a leg Steve and company!!
