There's no such thing as "Permission to See an Entire Thread". Maybe it started a new page. You have to select the page.
Good luck,

I am a little more worried about malware as I have seen some interesting things come across from Little Ship's Skype account that were coincidental to this recent change...... and I know it wasn't Tom !!

John.
I haven't used my Skype account for weeks. Let me know if this continues as I'll do whatever I can to prevent this in the future.

Bob the view unread posts since last visit button seems to have disappeared. It was there after the update but I can no longer find it.

Thought I would ask in case it's just me...

On my screen it is at the top. But what I miss is that it does not appear to be on the main page anymore as it used to be, only on each individual forum page. I much preferred clicking on it once when I had gone through the various forums.

On every page near the top, in the header is a link "Contributions".
Click it and make a contribution. It's simple and only takes a couple of minutes.

Just my view, the site is so unobtrusive on the money subject that I didn't realize it has been over a year since I contributed. So...I just re-upped. I am as sensitive to requests and emails regarding money and all of that but would have no issue whatsoever with a reminder email or popup every 6 months or annually, whatever. Something simply asking me to remember that this forum isn't free and Bob pays for it all. Without being part of the site management it is easy to forget...

I may get drummed out of the Corps for this or never have a question answered again but...oh well...I think it needs to be said. To get back to the topic "What's Happened?" I think this may show everyone what happened and why the need for ads. Bob is too nice to put it bluntly. All of this info is available on the site for all to see without Snowden, Asange or Wikileaks. I just sort of exported and tabulated it. I assume it is accurate. If it isn't and people give more than what appears then my apologies for being a butthead:

1) Since inception there are 160 members with 100+ posts. I chose that number because with 100 posts a person isn't just here for an answer and then gone.

2) Of these 160 there are 69 members who are currently active. Active defined by as logging in and posting in the last 12 months.

3) 16 (23%) of these Active Members have never contributed anything to the site.

4) 2 members (3%) have contributed this year.
2 members contributed in 2017
4 members contributed in 2016

5) Avg. active user has been here 12 years and donated $6.92 a year

6) Sad but some of the highest post count and more vocal people give the least and haven't donated in YEARS. To a newb like me that's just obnoxious.

Given all of this I don't know how Bob has avoided Ads for this long. If you like and use the site go give a few bucks to it. Geez.
