            ...and I see that the FB Like buttons are gone.  Our voices are heard. Smile

            Well at least someone here is making relevance to the subject.

              yes! everything looks clean again. and the button is moved to the top so dont forget its there, some of you may find it to be useful.

                Nice work, Eric. Good choice on the FB buttons. One for the thread is a better way to go.

                Cool

                  As you all have noticed, I removed the per post Like button and installed a topic Like button instead.  As of right now, FB doesn't support multiple Like buttons per page.  There are hacks to work around this limitation but I don't like FB enough to bother.  Per post Like is still a good idea because users don't have to dig through pages to find that one post.

                   

                   

                  On a related note, the Subscribe button now shows the number of users subscribing/following the topic.  You still won't be able to see who though.

                    Thanks eric. I think the page looks cleaner this way. I'm having some bizarre time dealing with the subscribe button though. For one, the check box next to the Post button doesn't give the option of subscribing without email notification (this is my preferred way). Additionally, I did not subscribe to a topic after trying to use this check box, but on subsequent posts to the topic (free speech), the subscribe radio box was checked and grayed out. This sort of forced me to email subscribe in order to post.

                     

                    PS It just did it again with another subscribed but no email topic (this one).

                      wanderlost,

                      Subscription has two modes: subscribe and follow.  Subscribe sends you an email if there is a new post *and* you have not received an email since your last view of this topic.  Follow does not send you an email.  Topics that you have elected to subscribe and follow are located in the "My Topics" menu item under the Forums menu.  The icons next to the topics will indicate which mode you're in.

                       

                      Subscribe will not send you notifications until your email address is verified.

                        Thanks -- even for followed topics it tried to make me subscribe.

                          No idea then.  Sorry.

                            Maybe your browser was open while the updates were being rolled out and got confused.  If you close it and reopen, the weirdness may go away.

                              wait... what? there's a "follow" and a separate "subscribe"? i am not seeing this. i am only seeing subscribe. when i put my cursor there on subscribe to click on it, a follow button overlaps the subscribe button, but i cannot choose one or the other. they appear to be the same. are there really two separate functions? i would very much prefer to follow and not subscribe. i just want to come here and check my thread list - i don't want a bunch of emails.

                               

                              except - i would want emails if i got a new PM. is there a way to subscribe to PMs?

                                You must be using some wacky browser.  When you - er, I hover over Subscribe, the Follow button appears below, in a separate space.
