Another problem noted. I just tried to edit a reply and assumed it was still within the 60 minute deadline as the "Edit Reply" link appeared at the bottom of my earlier reply.

My post two above you, which I posted about 3 hours ago, still has the "edit post" link even though it is clearly outside the 60 minute window.

Resolved.

If you could see it in your hearts to make an old grandfathered (site-wise) member happy and return the PM function to grandfathered members.

This new release does not involve reducing, eliminating or changing the features that were already included in your account level. In other words, if you've always had PMs and access to post in Site-Related in the past, there is no intention to remove those features. What you're experiencing is a bug rather than a change in service. It's been reported.

Quoting Packman (Reply 70):
My profile shows that my last post was about an hour ago but I have not posted anything since about 24 hours ago!

This is true of most users. Although this has not been confirmed, it appears that the system is reporting the date of your most recent login as the date of your last post. It was reported to the Developers earlier today.

It seems there's limited space for uploading images to your personal profile. For example if you wanted to insert an image into the "Other Information" part of your profile before, the page stretched to suit the size of the image you were uploading. Now it doesn't.

When I click on the preview of the first post of each thread in the Forum page the lines shown never hyphen, and its something that happens since months and months, cause of this its a function I never use these days.

When the preview option was first introduced it worked very very good.

Also, its very many days I didn't post on A.net and my profile page say my last post is of about 3 days ago.

Quoting Viscount724 (Reply 93):
Strongly recommend reverting to the old flags. Many of the new ones are unidentifiable. When they're that small they have to be as sharp as possible. For example, the new US flag looks like a reddish smudge with a little blue in one corner.

The UK flag has now been changed but it's still not as clear as before (it has some odd anti-aliasing so it still looks blurred). I see the Swiss flag is now smaller than the rest for some reason. I agree reverting to the original flags which were clear and readable is the best solution.

When you also check "From this location" it shows the correct images (mine from that location), and when I uncheck it again it shows my own "From this photographer" photos.

There is no negative lesson being experienced here. Indeed there are some bugs which have been reported above, and they will be addressed. But the general functionality of the site is stable and most areas of the site work as they should.

Profile edits, album photos, national flags and the appeal queue are all important aspects to users, and will be addressed.

You are only seeing one portion of the new release. It also includes extensive re-working of the administrative side of the site, vastly improving the tools and functionality available to the crew. Some of these these have been on our wish-list for quite a long time and this release tackled a lot of them.

For example - when the moderators move a thread from one forum to another - the system has never generated emails to the thread-starter, until this week. The moderators had to manually compose emails making note of the old & new URL's etc. We made good progress in getting this done consistently in the last year, but the system will now ensure better customer service by handling the task every time.

And another example is that emails will now be automatically generated when thread-titles are changed.

Yet another example is that post deletion notices now place moderator comments at the top, more prominently, so the basic reason for a deletion does not get lost in paragraphs of text. Users requested this change.

Just a few months ago we added the ability for moderators to edit posts - which has reduced the number of post deletions because we have been able to save user's content by removing a sentence or two instead of the entire post.

At the same time we increased the edit-time from 30 minutes to 60 minutes for users to edit their own posts, which also reduced overall post deletions.

When you include the things added a few months ago and the significant changes implemented last week (even if they aren't readily obvious to you) it is a major step forward in providing better customer service to users.



A little more than a year ago a release was implemented which caused extensive problems. Different people were involved then. By contrast, this latest release is a very positive step forward for the site. The number of bugs is relatively small given the huge scope of what was included in this release.

I don't know if this was intended, or is a bug, but I certainly don't like it:

When I just came to A.net, on the front page, the entire background behind the modules is a giant Acura ad.

I was going to include a screenshot, but, of course, I can't upload photos to my profile (it prompts me to log in....and then tells me I'm already logged in).

Whatever this new business is of turning the homepage into a massive ad in the background, it is not helping at all in the whole scheme of things. The website is being turned into something much more tackier and it doesn't need to be like that. It detracts from what this website should all be about - the gathering of aviation enthusiasts worldwide. IMO the homepage looks disgusting in its curent form with the ad in place. Nevermind the planes, it seems to be purely a revenue generating ploy: one that looks like it has the potential to deter people from the site.

Well, I guess thanks will be in order once the site returns to full functionality... However, I question the priority of issues being addressed here. There are still plenty of problems with the new release but instead you choose to introduce a new add to the front page. Photo screening has slowed down to less than half of what it usually is (coincidence? maybe...) though the uploading problems negate some of that... And there are still plenty of other account and forum issues that remain...

If A.net needs the add revenue, fine (though as others have said, something a bit more tasteful would be nice, this one is just a good way to shoo off visitors) but could we please get an update that fixes the current issues before introducing more.

PS. I'm not sure if it was introduced in this release or not, but I think blocking the Site Related forum from prospective members is a bit underhanded -- this is the only place on the site where we're allowed to mention the bugs with the site...

Some bugs that have crept in since the new release:

Following appear in photographer's corner:

1. View my photos in DB link at the bottom of the upload queue stats page takes you to view all photos in the DB.
2. My Total number of photos in DB at bottom of the upload queue stats page shows number of photos before shots added over the weekend - out by 6 at the moment.

Resolved.



When viewing a full size copy of 1 of my pics in the DB, the Other Great Photos by this Photographer thumbnails below it do not show any of my photos.

It might be a good idea to let those with a photographer account be able to post messages to the Site Related board.

Your feeling would be incorrect, as there was quite a bit of beta testing done prior to it going live, as members of the various crew departments tested a laundry list of items prior to the new software went live. No matter how much beta testing gets done beforehand, there will always be things that don't pop up until the site goes out of beta and goes live.

You have obviously never worked on a properly ran commercial site! The whole point of beta testing is to find bugs before the changes go live. If the bugs had got past beta testers on the sites I have worked on we would of sacked the testers   or got more involved. Of course it could be the way your dev site is set up who knows... someone should.

The whole point of beta testing is to find bugs before the changes go live. If the bugs had got past beta testers on the sites I have worked on we would of sacked the testers   or got more involved. Of course it could be the way your dev site is set up who knows... someone should.

Jid

I've worked on quite a few sites over the years, many of which were owned by multi million dollar companies, and I can honestly say that I've never seen one which was ever 100% bug free after a major update. Airliners.net is miles ahead in comparison and is making good progress despite some of the teething issues which are apparent.

As pointed out already, Airliners.net & Demand Media carried out extensive beta testing before the updates were applied to the live site. Inevitably, some bugs may have slipped through the net. In addition, it's also important to keep in mind that while a fix may solve one problem, it may inadvertently create another. (due to the nature of software development.) Despite that, I think the pros of this update will far outweigh the short-term cons. For example, the back-end has been significantly improved, offering better functionality and long term-stability. Additional features and enhancements have also been added to various parts of the site. Once the teething problems have been ironed out, Airliners.net will have a much better product than what it had before.

We do understand your concerns and there's a lot of internal and external communication to ensure that any outstanding issues will be addressed as soon as possible.

All we ask is for your continued patience, along with your constructive input. The end result will be a better site, for everyone to enjoy.

I cannot upload photos bigger than 1Mb. Up to last week that was possible without any problems. Will there be a change?

Would it be possible to have the mods edit the original post with a list of the bugs currently on the list from this thread. I don't have time to read them all, but I noticed a couple things.

1) #5 on the front page "Top 5" shots is blank
2) Acceptance email links to "recently added" instead of the accepted image
3) Link to "your photos" in que stats goes to database's most popular
4) "Other great photos" is screwed up

Cheers,

Kevin

Would love to have more threads per page on the forums again. It seems like there are fewer per page.

Absolutely agree. It seems like most of the pages have half the threads per page that they did prior to the update.

When I post a reply in a thread the read counter shows "0" until another reply is added after my reply.
It happened on several different topics and forums.

This is very irritating indeed.

Also it seems the website reverts all the time my setting of unlimited posts shown (the good 'ol way) to 25, really disturbing, can't this be solved somehow?

I wonder what the advantages are of the new website, thus far i haven't seen any improvement (okay the flags are better).  duck

Unable to delete any uploaded picture(s) from my "profile". After this : "Default" image is displayed.
Also impossible to edit additional remarks with uploaded pictures on my "profile".
Unable to upload pictures to my profile from my computer, it states that i am not logged in.

All very frustrating.

Quoting Srbmod (Reply 128):
No matter how much beta testing gets done beforehand, there will always be things that don't pop up until the site goes out of beta and goes live.

I am sorry but are you saying that no one noticed the problem with compressed threads? The testing cannot have been that extensive to have missed this.

I have been away from the site recently - unfortunate to come back to these kind of issues.

After a couple of minutes I notice two irritating issues, previously commented upon but not resolved:

* Replies in threads all compressed, and making changes in my profile to my preferred 'Good old way' of seeing all replies in full does not make any difference. This despite me reading here that this problem was going to be resolved some days ago.

* I also see that all the comments to my photos have disappeared in the Photographer's Corner. It says I have had no comments at all - but in fact have loads when I last looked. Without this there is no easy way of knowing how users are responding to your images, so this needs to be resolved.

Resolved.

Exactly - this raises serious questions about any "testing" , it is such an obvious and annoying bug that it should have been picked up before this 'upgrade' was unleashed on the unsuspecting members . Fixing this , and the limited number of threads per page should be a priority , but unfortunately nearly a week after the screw up ( oops , I mean "upgrade" ) no fix has occurred and no timeframe has been given for a fix , instead all we get are bland assurances that it is being looked into and rather annoying self congratulatory messages that things went really well so we should be grateful that they didnt make an even bigger mess .

Frankly this is unacceptable . Can somebody please give us a timeframe on when this is going to be fixed ? Bearing in mind the number of SNAFUs in the last couple of years I think that it would be a good gesture on behalf of Demand Media to extend everyones memberships by a couple of weeks in recognition of the degradation of service that this and other "enhancements" have caused .
