Here is a list of known issues and problems with the new site.  Please add to this list if you find more.

Message Board:  No emoticons.  Renamed Forum to Message Board on top tab but can't figure out how to change it on right sidebar, still reads as Forum.

Uploaded movies: uploaded videos don't appear on the iPad, or in Chrome browsers.  Just a black empty space. 

Photos:  slideshow doesn't work on iPad (Flash?)  Just a black empty space instead

Facebook:  integration is spotty.  sometimes the post will appear on FB, sometimes when clicking on the link the following message will appear on FB:

Sorry

The link you are trying to visit has been reported as abusive by Facebook users. To learn more about staying safe on the internet, visit Facebook's Security Page. Please also read the Wikipedia articles on malware and phishing.
 

This matter will be resolved eventually, it just might take awhile to get it working correctly. I received this response from the HELP Dept today:

Sorry to hear you're encountering difficulty here. There is actually currently an issue with sharing content to Facebook where Facebook is blocking our links as spam. Please rest assured that our Policy and Safety team is working on contacting Facebook in order to resolve this issue. I'm not sure what is involved in order to clear this up, but we will do our best to get things working properly again. Thanks for your patience as we look into resolving this issue.

Glad the problem is solved. I'll leave the post up in case anyone else has the same problem.

I don't know if this has been mentioned, but it's a bit annoying having to log in every time i come on to the forum, it would be nice if there was a "remember password" option.

I need to sign in every time also but, when I click on the box to type in my email I get a drop-down window with my email already there. When I click on that, my password is automatically entered and I just click 'Sign In' after that so, it's really easy for me. Maybe it's different for different people?

Maybe if you try updating your password it will remember the new one?

Firefox gives you the option to remember both email and password. Works great for me.

I use LastPass, a free password manager.  It is the best I have ever used.  Google it if you are interested.

Holy Crap that's awesome! I think I'll be doing that today! I've got this little paper pad I keep all my passwords in (cuz I feel uneasy keeping them anywhere on my computer) and of course it's not in alphabetical order... so every time I need to find a password (which is often) I gotta hunt through every last page of that little book and it makes me NUTS!

I never knew that such a thing as 'LastPass' existed so, this is fantastic news to me... I can't wait to throw away  BURN that little book.  Thanks Martin!

I'm using safari so it doesn't remember it like firefox. Lastpass does seem like a good option, but in my opinion people will be a little more enticed to the site if it has a "remember password" tickbox like many other sites do! Just my opinion though ;)

If the site doesn't support "remember password", then it doesn't support it.  Anyone who wants it different can contact ning and see what their plans are for feature.  As mentioned before, there are several perfectly good browsers that will take care of that.

Something I noticed once I got past the indignity of not having the "remember password" feature implemented just the way I wanted it, is that there seems to be some stopmo content here...

Apologies! Anyway, otherwise the new site is awesome! Loving it.

Just wanna update here, I did create an account with LastPass and it works! I still have to see that log-in screen but my info it automatically filled in for me now.

Ron,

I am just glad that I could help.  Between the inspiration and information that I have gleaned from you, Nick, and Richard Svensson, not to mention all the support and general good vibes from so many others too (like Anthony, Mike, and Dan, and so many more) and the archives here, I constantly feel humbled and very fortunate to be a member here.  I remember how I first found the site while reading about Ron's facial mechanics control in a book on stop motion (the one with the blue tunnel from Coraline on the cover) which had a link to his video, then I read him mention the board, and BOOM!  Like going through the wardrobe in The Lion, the Witch, and the Wardrobe and ending up in Narnia!  This board and the people on it are the reason I have slogged through the past six or seven months keeping my hopes up, patiently collecting one bit at a  time.  Without you folks and this board, I don't doubt that I would have become discouraged long ago and given up.

I have almost finished a test set and a 1/20th scale puppet for the T. Rex piece, and will be posting photos soon.  I used mostly recycled materials, and I have to say it is looking pretty good, although there is still a lot to be done.  I will have to make the final set a bit larger, this one is a wee bit low on the ceiling heights, and I will be making 2 sets: one at 1/6th scale and one at 1/20th scale so the size of the 40 foot (real life scale) T. Rex will be a manageable two feel in length in the long shot.

Ron,

Since the information you put into LastPass is encrypted and not on your computer, should you have a disk crash or move to another machine, all you have to do is download the software again.  Your account access is not affected at all.
