    So what do you guys think of the new and improved SDN? So far I see that they list "recent visitors" as well as how many people are logged in...it doesn't seem as anonymous as before:) Probably cuz it's not....silent observers beware..

    OH darn, now everyone time I come on, all of you are going to know. Then, I'll be labelled as the "no lifer." Actually, I like it. At least it's not slowing down my computer this time.

    I like it. Right now there are more guests logged on than there are users! Does that mean that there are a lot of users out there who just lurk around? C'mon guys! Join in!

    it just says how many people are logged on, not who exactly it is that is here (unless i'm missing something). but am i the only one who thinks SDN is a lot slower now?

    oops, never mind. i found where it says who's here. seems a little big brother-ish to me. :D
     
  7. was there always a "print printer friendly version of this topic" on the bottom left? i also noticed that when you post, it takes you back to the page you posted on, and down to where your post is...you no longer have to scroll down.

    i like the changes. although i'm not sure how they estimate the number of people that are "logged on" since i'm alwaya logged on..i just come to this site and i'm already logged in. could this number be misleading...? tun tun tun...i'm at the edge of my seat

Why is it loading so slow?

    The logged-in feature only displays those people that are currently active on the site. If you have not been reading any pages within the last few minutes you aren't counted as being logged-in.

    The feature is very interesting, but it is just slowing things down too much. So, I'm going to deactivate it.

    Since you guys were all able to find this on your own, I feel a little silly, but I'm sure someone besides me has this question too, so I'll just ask. Where do you look at the recent visitors and list of people logged on?

    And it says we can rate each other? How do you do that?

    Attn Administrators:

    Just a suggestion: can you please add an optional male or female question to the profiles?

    OK Everybody please go to update your profile and write if you are male or female (if you want to)...This will eliminate some confusion

    We CAN make a difference :D :D :D
