In response to BDCDottie's comment:
As you can see, we've launched new discussion forums, article comments, and personal profiles on the site. We've always relied on software from other companies to power our user tools. But during the past few months, we've built our own â we think this will give us more flexibility and control over these features.
Here in the forums, we had to delay the implementation of some of the features that you like: The gold star that brings you to the first unread comment, Ignore this user, spell check, add an image, and some others. We have a working list of items to restore in the coming days and weeks.
Once again, for at least the 4th time, I'm complaining about the inability to author long posts on this horrible new system. It appears that, when attempting a long post, you get "timed out". Something always appears to happen, half way through a lengthy post, in which I get "this program is not responding" type messages, and my key board freezes up. As a result, I post gets wasted, along with my time. Please let me know whether you intend to look into solving this problem. It's been ongoing for most of the season.
Just paste the post into a text editor and compose your additions. Then paste the completed work into a reply. Better than wasting your time. Simple enough.
It appears that nothing is going to get fixed here any time soon.
