Just got back to civilization after scout camp with #4 son; just started playing with the new forum last nite. So far it seems to work OK with Chrome and Puffin browsers, not so much with the stock internet browser on my Android phone; podcasts and other menus obscure/clutter the startup screen and impede easy navigation; on Chrome and Puffin, it wasnt nearly as bad: the menus and pulldowns were controllable and a tad more organized. Editing account info is easier (bio, picture, etc). Definitely will take some getting used to.

But a problem with the PM's is that a lot of members just use a phone and in 2 days of searching I can't find the way to access them on a phone with two different browsers.

Ok, I see it now but I swear that it wasn't there yesterday.

For others using a phone click on the three horizontal lines on the upper left hand corner of the screen which should bring up the screen that Scott shows along with a menue along the left hand side. Then just open up your envelope for messages/conversations and then show all

Scott, can we get the members information to show up 24/7 instead of having to hit the arrow under their name?

Being able to see it at a glance is a lot nicer.

That was about 3 years ago on the Q creek ranch in Wyoming. A big herd came over a hill where we were parked. The next few photos were of the south end of all those elk!
I had an antelope tag, of course!

Stay tuned guys, we will be having a new banner contest soon. That one migrated over from the last forum but its time to have another one. I wanted to get through finding any bugs first, and might have some sweet prizes for the winner...

All,

I'll come right out say this: after a week with the new setup, I miss the simplicity and efficiency of using Tapatalk to access the forum on my Android phone. I didn't have issues posting pics using TT. Things just were easier-finding new threads-posting pics-navigating threads- IMHO using TT on my phone. The handful of pics I posted this past week required me to use a 3rd party app to resize them-I don't remember having to do that with TT-b4 posting them.

I understand change can be PIA for some. I respect the Eastman's very much, and am grateful for the opportunity to participate in this great social media forum for like minded sportspeople. I will not be 'leaving', nor is the meant as a rant-just a candid review of the new system after one week using it. I also understand that I am a guest here and may need to adapt to new software.

I do think I am getting the hang of using the new forum , and with time, some of the operations will be less taxing. One thing I did was use Chrome to set a direct link on my phone to the forum, and that helped.

Regards,
