WTF WSO

@AndyLouis

You HAVE to stop that annoying pop up on the lower left of screen. I know it's intention is to sell more premium items, but this is an abomination. I'm sure there was time/money spent on developing that, but it needs to go.

It can't have value more than once or twice. It'll make people aware of the offerings (although there has to be better ways to advertise), but then beyond that it'll either be ignore or annoy the fuck out of everyone.

Also, although the chance of doxxing is very low, it seems very odd to be showing names and location of people purchasing on a site that has value driven by anonymity.

Definitely agree on the last point. Why do we bother with usernames if our real name will be displayed when/if we buy something?

SB'd. Don't pull a SNAP and completely kill the platform because of a shitty new layout and site functionality.

SB'd the OP but SNAP was killed by IG/FB not because of some sort of redesign

And a shitty layout, followed by a final blow from one of the Jenner girls, who specifically mentioned the shitty layout.

Also, since we get a box for best and funniest answer can we get a red one for 'worst answer' (most MS)?

While I agree with how annoying it can become, the solution is simple:

  1. Wait for the next box to show up.
  2. Bring your mouse to the box, an "x" should appear on the top corner of the box.
  3. Click the aforementioned "x".

The boxes should not come up again. Hope this helped :)

Prost

SB'ed cheers

Agreed. Also can't stand the new mobile layout - I liked when I could see the "new" comments on the right hand of the screen. Have definitely used WSO less since this update

the "new" comment links are now back on MOBILE for the following views:

  1. All recent content: https://www.wallstreetoasis.com/tracker
  2. Recent forum content: https://www.wallstreetoasis.com/forum/investment-b...

Should have them on most of the Trending and Best views by end of day and all of them by early next week.

Thanks,
Patrick

There's also an issue of not being able to see how many new replies there have been to threads that I've read before when browsing through the 'All Recent Content' screen, at least on mobile.

THANK YOU guys for your honest feedback...I think there are a few issues highlighted in this thread.

1) Bottom left Pop-ups -- something changed where they just started showing up way too frequently and were annoying. We've now removed them so that they only show up on product and service landing pages for now (if you still see them, could take a while because of cache)...in other words, these will stop annoying you because effectively they are gone except for <1% of the pageviews on site.

2) New Replies on Mobile -- this is my fault. In the new change over to the cleaner forum container design -- we lost a lot of the title and then in an attempt to get title length back up to normal, x new was removed (along with a bunch of other bugs that were fixed just yesterday). This will be remedied but it may take until end of day tomorrow (apologies @BBDreamin and @poppinbottleS ) @leadlefttackle2013 I assume this is what you mean by shitty new layout and site functionalilty? We haven't had any other major changes recently...

Any further ideas/suggestions welcome!

Stay tuned!
Patrick
