So I'm giving the mobile-friendly changes another shot, and will be fixing any problems that come up. It's a work in progress, but feel free to reply here or send me email directly if you notice anything amiss: linh@dance.net And I have a treat in store! I'm bringing back chat, and it'll be a lot easier to use. Probably on every screen or something like that. Linh

I have two questions: how are we going to know when we have a now PM? I don't see anywhere now where we will see a yellow banner. How do we give karma to a post? I don't see a button to click to give karma.

All in all, I don't know if I like this new mobile format any more than I did the last mobile make-over. As I recall, the other mobile make-over didn't seem to go over too well. Many members were happy to see the original way the site was set up. Please keep the site arranged in the original format.

Let me know what parts are important to add back and I'll work on them first. :)

The reality is that we need to go mobile-friendly because search engines increasingly rank mobile sites higher. So if we want to grow, we have to make the switch.

Based on your comments, I'll work on:

  • PM notification
  • Giving out karma

Also, I think you'll be very pleased with the new chat I'm working on for the site. It'll have four main rooms: dancers, teachers, owners, and mods, and will appear on all pages making it really easy to use.

Are you any closer to a way of PM notifications yet? I'd really like to know how we'll get PM notifications. When we click onto our profile, we see the small envelop icon with PM on it. Maybe that icon could have the yellow banner on it?

Funny you should ask that. I have most of it in place now where you'll see a yellow envelope and "NEW PM!!" if you're using a desktop browser. On phones and small screens, you'll see the icon change color to yellow. This generally works when you start a new browser session with dance.net. I'm working on clearing out the cache sooner and a way to update the envelope in real-time while you're browsing. Thanks for being patient! Best, Linh
