    Others have tried so let me try as well.
    We are having a problem with the buttons down at the bottom of posts.
    Well the buttons are fine. Some members aren't reading the buttons.

    We are being swamped with reported posts because the person reporting a post is either trying to post to a thread or either he is trying to rep another member.
    The report a post button even has yellow lettering.

    These "reps" are NEVER received because the BOC REP GIVER button wasn't clicked on.
    These "posts" never get posted because the POST BUTTON wasn't clicked on.

    The POST button is located on the left side BELOW the SECRET button.

    The problem occurs when a member thinks he made a reply to post. His post never shows up because it goes to the staff. The member then thinks since his post never showed up that his post was pulled by staff. That is not the case. The member that clicks on the wrong button pulls his own post.

    The other problem occurs when the rep you intend to give doesnt get received. Over time there may be a misunderstanding between members with someone thinking they are giving all these reps to a member and that member NEVER reps him and thinks he is being snubbed. He NEVER reps you probally because he has never been repped all those times you thought you were repping him.

    Slow down, take your time, read the buttons and everything flows like water downhill.
    This board goes through changes periodically for various reasons so you have to read the buttons.

    I dont understand whats so hard about it . Letters are plenty big, easy to read, maybe the beer is the problem. LOL.. but since it is a problem. Why not switch back to like it was before the change. Unless that was a problem also. If members get that confused over change . slow down on the changes a little. Seems like every other week its something different. We are outdoors people, not closet people.
    Someone drink a beer now and then and chill out . this aint wal mart change aint always good. LOL.


    besides, my buddy Phil probably has been loosing Reps over this miss print / miss understanding of buttons and he is hurting for some love.
