Subscribe option missing and natural flow of the threads is disrupted

I've noticed a couple of problems when working with the submission threads in the new layout.

1) Subscriptions are missing. TG places heavy emphasis on the Credibility Rating. TG places heavy responsibility on the voters to monitor their own votes. TG has just removed the option for the voters to monitor the threads they've voted on!

2) The new layout makes responding on a thread cumbersome. The natural flow of a thread is to read from the top down and then at the bottom to respond. The buttons are at the top of the individual posts which means having to scroll back up out of order with the flow of the thread.

    I been saying that for years... They still dont get it. They never will. They do whatever they want, without any input first, from the active gaming community.

    Everything Barthax said above...

    To add...I cant even see my own profile of what I personally have pending/approved (all of my scores) . The personal ranking search tab is missing, which was my favorite one.

    Dont you think that would be the MOST IMPORTANT to a competitive gamer???

    I just want to not get logged out every time I close my browser. It started over a month ago, after I had cleared my cache.

    Oh, it'd be cool to be "mentionable" in submission threads again. Short usernames (less than 5 letters) can't be mentioned. That started March 2018, and it's been brought up several times in the past. We can be mentioned in wall posts, but nowhere else. Being mentioned in submission threads is usually for something important regarding the submission.

    No ****! Same for me. Drives me nuts. To be fair, it only happens on my phone web browser. My computer browser never logs me out. I do not like looking at the website on my phone. At all.

    Clear your PC's cache and you'll be in the same boat as me and a few others.

    I dare you to :p

    If anyone is interested in the "reply/quote" button, they are now "boxes".

    What? You didnt know that??? <rolls eyes>

    Ha, your large text is still affected by the end text bug. Hahaha, double smack in the face my friend. I'm to tired to clear my cache. The hand movement and the couple clicks is just to time consuming. Besides, it appears my next few days will be spent bitching about why TG keeps making these unnecessary changes when other EASIER, more important things could possibly be done. What do I (We) know, we only use the site every day.

    It would actually be funny if the reply button was a different box every time just to **** with us members. Revenge of the ITs for all our bitching.

    Son of a ***** I closed my browser!!! What pisses me off is that even though I know I'll be logged out every time, I still keep on clicking "keep me logged in".

    Here is the obvious solution...as they will never fix the tagging feature.

    Change your usernames to these examples...

    RaGeMeNtIoNaBle or AlRiGhT

    Max-Out or MAXimus


    (I know, its sad)

    Ha! That must have taken you a while to type RaGe's new suggested user name.

    How do you suggest we fix the premium/marginal track issue?

    How do you suggest we fix that hawksett changes some tracks for one user, but outright tells other users he won't make changes to tracks?

    Maybe they are working with this and that's why things are seeming like they are going backwards?

    I have never cleared my cache and I started to get logged out every time too, starting about 2 weeks ago with one of the latest unnecesary interface changes.

    Getting logged out - I just responded on starcrytas' wall about that: https://www.twingalaxies.com/starcrytas/wall/6583/cant-load-the-site-on-google-chrome/page/1#comment41544 . Most likely your external IP address is changing between log ons.

    Found the Subscribe option - it's under the drop-down list of "Thread Tools" just above the OP on each page. Probably was there all along & I just wasn't registering what it was. :P
