I still cannot insert links for items on this forum; when will this be addressed? Because there is no Tutorial forum, I took it upon myself to create a collection of them,

http://cs.scaleautomag.com/sca/general_discussion/f/3/t/113982.aspx

and have asked members to contribute. Absent their ability to provide links, this has become a stagnant post.

Perhaps not mentioned before, the Search function is now represented by a magnifying glass symbol in the black bar at the top. There is also a magnifying glass in the tool bar when posting a reply...said symbol allowing you to preview your post. Using one symbol to represent multiple (depending on where you are) functions makes no sense. As a suggestion, change the magnifying glass in the black bar at the top to the wod SEARCH so it will be consistent and not be in conflict with other uses of that symbol.

The new search is much better, but can be improved with a few simple suggestions:

As mentioned above, use the word SEARCH instead of an image 

Add the information from the original post, as in the date and author of said post

Do NOT search the text of replies or any other site-related info. If, in my profile, I mention that "my friend married a stripper", guess where it would appear: in any search for stripper!!!

When will the above issues be addressed?

Considering there is still issues that were never addressed, let alone fixed after the last major revamp in 2012 (the log in problems experienced by so many, for example), my guess is not likely anytime soon. As I also pointed out after this recent "upgrade", clicking on "your discussions" now only shows a member what threads they have started, not every thread they have contributed to. There are many posts I've made in various threads that I used to look back at regularly, in order to reference something, but that is no longer possible. Yet, the help section still tell you that you can find them all.

Wait a minute, there was an overall Help section (albeit generic, for all the websites that this particular vendor supported) in the previous version...it gave (generic) versions of how to post pics, links, described what "threads etc." were, etc. I missed that in my original post,,,thanks SFD
