    Yea, but the only drawback I see is that nobody told anybody that they were going to open up your profile like that. Now you can look at my profile to see who my friends are and I can look to see who your friends are. Some may be disapointed to see that they are not on their friends "Friends List". See what I mean. Myself, I never used that part so maybe I won't hurt anybody's feelings, lol.

    Well just because someone hasn't added you as a friend all you have to do is send them a friend request. I am sure that no one will pass up anyone on here as being a friend.

    Your right about that part rich I hadn't noticed. But your name is still there on posts that you posted on.

    Richard, I'm with ya on this one buddy. I was in chat early this morning for a while, and a couple folks came in whose names I did not know/couldn't recall. I missed being able to click on profiles and see the real names myself.

    I think the upgrade is ongoing, so perhaps that part of the profiles will go back to normal sometime soon.

    All the information that was in the profiles is still there. Take a look under the Profile Picture (or just their username and title if they haven't uploaded a profile pic) to the blue tab that says Visitor Messages. Then click the gray tabs to the right of that that say About Me, Statistics, Friends, and Contact Info. The About Me tab is the one under which you'll find that person's name and location. :wink:

    I hope that I will always have the time to speak with anyone on the B.O.C. But, I either don't have the time or the inclination to go to each page on the board to see what has changed, if it's changed, then experiment with the darn thing to see what it does. I like the KISS principle, as it really applies to me... Keep It Simplte Stupid.

    I liked the old profile page... but I'm partial to "old". :cool2:

    I liked clicking on a page and seeing ones profile without having to click again. Less wear and tear on my fingers.

    I thought everyone was already my friend except the ones in my Ignore List. :wink:

    I've gotten a few PM's from members who are unsure what I'm talking about. Here's a few screen caps of my profile that show the tabs I mentioned.

    I don't like it whatsoever one bit that people can publicly see my messages on my profile page.Their messages to me, not anybody that clicks on that page..... Other than that, I reckon I'll get used to it......

    John, "Notifications" includes PMs and also two new features "friend requests" (folks who want to be included on your friends list) and "new visitor messages" (you now have a conversation board in your user CP, everyone can see what is said there).

    Try right clicking on "Notifications", then click on "Open"; or, you can just go directly into your User CP from the blue bar at the top of the page.

    Hope this helps bro.

    Just think of your conversation board as a myspace page (I don't do myspace, but I heard that's how it works). Private messages are still private messages, so if someone has something personal to say to you that feature is still available. :big_smile:

    Kris (Eithne), thank you for the pictures but no dice. I went in everyone's profile on this page, yours included, once again. In your pics, where it's showing those tabs? All I have there is a skinny navy blue line. Tried clicking on it, dragging across it, everything I could think of.
