Quote from: Madiel on December 01, 2022, 07:07:25 AMI don't have any such checkbox... look in your profile settings.

Well, that was my point, actually. I don't have any checkboxes either.

Quote from: Harry on December 01, 2022, 07:06:11 AMI fully agree, its is annoying >:( 

Yes, that. :(

Possibly: 

Forum Profile > Look & Layout > Show quick Moderation > change to Don't Show, instead of checkboxes or icons ??

When one scrolls up from the bottom of a page with lots of images (e.g. the listening and buying threads), I noticed images are no longer loading instantaneously, in the seamless manner they used to; instead, they are loading as one goes along, resulting in very noticeable and annoying jolts and stutters, losing your position on the page. Can this be fixed or is it staying with us? 🤷

Nope. I already had it on don't show, but it shows >:D

fair enough...I don't get any checkboxes at all and that was on "don't show".

Quote from: Spotted Horses on December 01, 2022, 06:08:03 AMActually, now that I look more carefully, it is inconsistent. Sometimes it opens with the top bar visible, other times not. Seems to "remember" that I scrolled up to it on a previous visit. I'm also using Safari (current version).
Hmm...strange!

And I haven't tried visiting GMG forum on an iPhone lately, but it sounds like (from others' comments here) that it isn't an available option for phones.

My experience is that the bar at the top is there on iPhone/Safari but it doesn't include the search field unless the phone is in landscape mode.

Thanks.  I have such a hard time typing on (at least my) small iPhone keyboard--even doing short texts is a pain let alone look up anything on Safari.  :(

No, I haven't used voice before.  Good suggestion!

Not that it answers your question directly,  but I have my posts set to display as most recent first,  and as I scroll down the page the pictures are already loaded.  Doing it this way may seem annoying to maintain continuity,  but you soon grow used to it.

No, I didn't think you could see that,  that's new. Anyway I have a row of icons that can be changed into a menu list,  wherein to do that stuff I do.  Thus it only applies to mods.

But if anyone has run across this option or if Rob notes this  comment (he will) maybe it's a control that he could simply activate.  😇

"Who are you, sir, who ar't so wise in the ways of men?  Hmmmmm??"  :D

Yeah, that's what I meant, I don't know why you have controls to turn something on/off that you don't have. But I'm not a teen any longer, what can I know???   :D

What I meant was, I don't have the boxes you're complaining about. "Box" versus "checkbox" confusion.

Do you mean that when you press the button to "Mark everything read", you don't get a box that comes up and says "Are you sure you want to do that?". I am highly desirous of turning that right off. That's all. Well, that and all the other similar actions which seem to require double verification.  :)

I had never tried marking everything as read. I just read them. Yes I do get a prompt when I do that.

Presumably as a moderator your list of unread posts grows a lot longer than mine.

There is nothing I can do about the extra "Are you sure" popup. Its pretty standard on apps, such as email, where you want to be careful about what you delete.
