hi HB   no it is all sorts of stuff, some is for jobs, the whole page at times is swamped with items from news bot

Whats newsbot?

Is it all that unrelenting drivel that used to be at the top every page using twice as much bandwidth as the forum pages you are trying to see,  or the unrelenting blurb about other threads and god knows what that I used to see taking up the whole l/h side of the pages that used to soak up my sometimes limited bandwidth and even more limited screen space?

 

They make my browser work quite hard shutting the scripts down, but i get almost full pages of what I come for now, although my main browser cant even log on here again.

God knows how many people try a few times, and those that  eventually connect and see reams and reams of telly tubby colouring book in their face or OH OH page you've just clicked on  doesnt exist .... and leave.

 

I still get that uhh oh page LOTS

You only log into two topics everyday anyway both in the bear garden....nothing consumer related...no advice or assistance given to anyone.

 

So not sure why you are  having problems searching...what's you searching for ?  🤣

I'm not searching for anything - the uh uhs are simply from clicking on 'last page; from the page list at the bottom of forum threads or even a few pages before the alleged last page on some of the very limited threads I look at

... or even from a link in emails received from here.

I laegely gave up on the rest long ago.

 

Although should you bother to look back, I did help a few times when I could be bothered to circumvent the issues, but the 'hostile environment disincentivised that - and not just conniff  despite him doing a populist and pointing at others

- as previously stated and commonly de-listed.

- although your critique is generally accepted as valid

 and I'll act on it as per your example

 

I didnt want to be associated with threads where forum representatives told clearly forum inexperienced people to read through the threads on the subject as that had been answered before somewhere or other,  or a long period where people were told to 'take them to small claims court 'you'll likely win if you do it right .. probably putting them off here forever

-yes it probably would work, and yes that would shake up the repeat offense businesses, but people are afraid of that and the fallout and costs should they simply get something they know nothing about wrong.

 

 

Mind you, this is also a critique, albeit intended as informative if unlikely to end up being constructive.

If I click on new posts tab - I see posts from all over the site

Not sure what you mean by red star or circle Am I missing something in your question?

Sorry, I didn't frame the question very well.

 

If I go to the BG I get the list of threads. For me, there is normally a red star or dot on the left of the thread title that takes me to the latest posts on that thread and I click on that.

Depends on Internet browser being used as to how the site behaves.

 

I tend to use Firefox as that appears to work best.

I use an older firefox set up how I want it and a proxy as I sometimes connect through the BT or VM shared connection facilities I have access to when I'm out and about and dont want my actions viewed by (or blamed on) unknown others if i can avoid it.

 

Currently using a portableapps version of latest palemoon to access - which has the same uh oh issues

 

I use one of the adblock 'strains on each to block all the unwanted stuff, but turning them (adblockers) off makes no difference to the Uh Oh's

Sounds like CAG forum software is not friendly to your browser set up.

 

CAG site had a major update recently, so that may explain this being a recent issue.

Undoubtedly to do with site code changes - as without changing anything at all sometimes I can log in with my old firefox, sometimes I cant

Script tunning is actioned differently on a number of browser - but that it changes without me changing anything points at the coding 'methods' here

 

The uh ohs are consistent across a number of browesrs, but if i remember rightly, didnt occur with a latest firefox browser i tried - but the latest firefox doesn't do what I want it to, and the old version does despite not being 'liked' by some sites. The new install also affected the old one and wouldn't play nicely with it so was removed

 

Trustpilot bans you even reading the site unless you use one of their approved latest browsers - so I dont go there anymore = mind you when companies with 50%+ highly negative feedback can get high positive 'trustpilot  ratings' there ... its no loss

I mean npower had over 4* trustpilot rating despite almost solid red bad reviews didnt it?

Oh and the star appears for me when a new post appears in the list HB and it takes me to the post, but that seems different to the uh oh issue despite the uh oh occurring sometimes from emails, despite me being still logged in on arrival, and it happening on the page list constantly on some threads

It seems the sites 'only display limited posts if its not a registered user logged in' script as a likely source

With shortgage of lorry drivers, people to pick crops and now energy supply costs set to hit production,  not looking good  !

 

WWW.BBC.CO.UK

A shortage of the gas could hit meat production and packaging, UK processors warn.

 

These media stories will drive panic buying, as people look to stock up.
