So much better - thanks!

(I still miss the IMs)

and added that line to see what it did to my post time, it slipped. So the moratorium on post editing still holds.

Hadn't realized how slow it was until seeing how fast it is...

Nice to have you walking tall again, Typophile. Thanks to you, good folks at Punchcut, for this upgrade -- whenever you are ready to take donations or membership fees again, I'll be ready.

Great job. I know you wish we'd say the same about software upgrade... ;)

Will those of us who contributed while the site was down get memberships too when that's working again? I ponied up.

That's not a bad idea...

I don't think this donation should count towards a future membership fee.

Actually I just saw the very nice thank-you, so I retract my previous statement.

Yeah, I'll say it again, thanks Punchcut. I agree, membership options with new tees! Perhaps a tee design contest on typophile?

Why not? I've wanted to join for awhile and it hasn't been possible. Isn't the point of membership to support the hard work of the typophile team? What's the diff?

It seems to me that the spirit of the donation should not be encumbered by expecting something in return. I think most of us did it simply to show appreciation for this event. But there's no reason different views can't be accomodated... via the making of future donations by the willing. :-)

And exactly how are such donations made now? The experience is much better than ever - thank you all so much.

That's how I felt immediately after posting my first message.

Yeah, bring on memberships! I'm ready to sign up the entire studio, whether they like it or not ;P

I like the idea of the membership thing remaining voluntary. I first found the site several years ago, and didn't join right away because I thought it was paid only (and at that time money and food were a bit more closely connected in my life).

Now that I can, I will pay my share, but I like the idea that there is no distinction between those who have, and those who cannot (or will not, I suppose). Or if there is a distinction, let it be on the profile page or somewhere, and not on the forums.

Actually, there was a distinction back when membership was offered: access to certain parts of the site. On the other hand those parts remained tellingly deserted (even though there were a good number of -otherwise active- members).

That speedbust was really necessary... ; ) Nice.

BTW Where are the previous and next links?

(And a reminder: I paid for a membership & never got my T-shirt. So…)

Hooray! It's back!

One little thing, though: The favicon is missing from the "shortcut icon" in the HTML.

Oddly(?), for me it was there until I logged in, then it was gone.

(seems to be fixed now)

Is there a place where that link can normally be found, or will we have to search through threads to find it?

Christian,
You mean right there at the bottom after the copyright the blue word "feedback"?

> Anyone having trouble with the RSS not showing most of what gets posted?

I believe the RSS of thread posts was purposely delayed when the forum was just back online the first time. I'm not sure if it still is after it came back online the second time, with the new hosting package, though.

It looks like it, sometimes a lot of new posts show up in my reader, other times only sporadically, eventhough there are new threads.
