It has been a very busy week here at Gay Authors. While the site upgrade has been completed, the staff is still working on all the little bugs that can happen with such a major switch. Please be patient, and if you find what you believe to be a bug, PLEASE check to see if it's already been reported and answered. We have a bug report thread specifically for reporting bugs. Some questions are being asked repeatedly and the staff is doing their best to answer, so help us by checking to see if your question has already been answered. The new forum software has some great new options, but with the good comes the bad. Please remember that some of the options that were in the old software are not available/possible in the new software and these things are not something that Gay Authors can change.
Here's a couple of the most asked questions and their answer.
Q: Can you please restore the ability to delete notifications.
A: No. While the old software allowed this ability, the new software does not. That aspect of the notification is not something we control and we cannot change it.
Q: When I try to change notification settings, the option is grayed out and says "The administrator has disabled this option from being toggled."
A: It is something that we are aware of, but unfortunately it is not something we have been able to fix at this time.
Q: My list of friends has disappeared.
A: "Friends" has been replaced with "Followers". To add a member to your list of people you follow, simply go to their profile and click the "Follow Member" button next to the member's name.
These are just a few of the questions that we keep getting. We know that there are a lot of questions with the new system, but once again, please read through the bug thread to see if your question has already been answered. Also, when reporting what you think is a bug, please include the following information so that we can try to replicate the problem:
What area of the site were you using (Stories, Forum, Blogs, Gallery, etc)?
Specifically what were you attempting to do (post a topic, edit a story, etc)?
Tell us if you succeeded, if you succeeded with an error, or if the result was not what you expected.
Tell us if the error is repeatable - did you try again, and did it work?
Provide links if you have them: Please link to the story, forum topic, or specific post if you can.
Please provide a screenshot if you have one, by attaching it using the image button in the toolbar.
We also need some information about your system:
- Your hardware platform (Mac, PC, iPad, Surface, iPhone, Android, etc)
- Your operating system, including the version number if you know it (Mac, WIndows, Linux, IOS, Android, etc)
- Your browser and version (Internet Explorer, Edge, Firefox, Safari, Chrome, etc)
- Did you have any ad-blocking software or pop-up blocker running, and was it active at the time?
Now, let's take a look at what happened this week in the various GA News Blogs!
