    Bernice is clueless.

    I wish they had left gocomics the way it was. I don’t like this new site at all. It took me an hour to have it show my username instead of my email name. And you still have to double click for a good line break. And you still can’t edit a comment without doing a cut and paste.

    1) Sounds like GoComics’ new format is going to be hard to get used to. 2) Cannot wait to see Bernice’s and Ez’s adventure begin on this kind of patrol.

    I will have to get used to this format for comments. I don’t see too many people who had been commenting, so I will see where it goes. Change can be disconcerting.

    Tips for the New GoComics:

     

    Navigation Tip: Instead of right clicking the strip title and opening in a new tab|window as we use to do, right click on the speech balloon and open in a new tab|window. This way you won’t have to reload your comic page when you want to go to another comic.

     

    Screen Name/Avatar: Click on your Avatar (top of the screen to the right of SHOP) and select MY PROFILE and click EDIT. Then you change your display name and/or update your avatar. Note: Your display name will appear in all caps regardless of how you enter it.

     

    Editing a comment: Until you refresh the page pressing Ctrl + Z in the comment box will re-display your comment so you can edit it and then repost it (then you can delete the previous one). Note this does not work when using Reply.

     

    Creating a Blank Line: Type Enter Enter   Enter Enter (  stands for non breaking space)

    On the new site, many of our usual display names got somehow reset to the prefix of our email address, or some such. If you notice yours is not displaying as usual, go to edit your profile and set your display name to what you want.

    So what the hell is a “GC Insider”? What classified information are you privy to, or what are you inside of that we’re not? Can you reach inside the GC site design team’’s collective behind and pull their heads out?

    But then there’s this:

    THAT’S the error message when something goes wrong?

    I’ve read the complaints about the re-do. You can click on an avatar to look at someone’s past comments, but it no longer tells you how many they have made. Because of this we won’t be able to celebrate Bouncing Betty or The 20% Solution reaching the 50K milestone. Sad. Obviously another crooked, lying media ploy.

    Those stupid, annoying pop up ads don’t interfere with reading the strip or the comments. Much better. The strip is also larger for guys like me that need reading glasses. Also much better.

    @Bigboxes: On the old site, you also did not have to see the comments if you chose not to. You just looked at the strip and moved on to the next comic in your rotation. Easy Peasy. No Brainer.

    I like: The replies are in-line with the original poster, making it so much easier to see who is being replied to. 

    I don’t like: The “Reply” link button visually is too similar to the “nn Replies” button; should have a different font to make it easily stand out better. Better still, the tree should open automatically for the entire comic, as others have said here. 

    I also don’t like: The comments counter at the top of the page only counts original posts. It said “43 Comments” when I looked; in fact there’s over a hundred when replies are included. This is misleading as to the reach of the day’s conversations.

    A family lived like it was 1885 for six months. When they returned from the 19th century they weren’t so enamored of the electronic heavy, time restrained, stressful 21st century. They in fact used their electronic devices less, spent more time outside and felt relieved not dealing with them. I found that very telling.

    If I did that I’d be spending ALL my time outside, probably under a bridge having lost my ability to earn income and keep a roof over my head. I’d love to be able to do things the old fashioned way in my line of work, and that was as recent as the early 90s, but it’s gone — not from memory, however.

    @ Frank Farkel: The wonderful new system does not count any of the replies, just the visible comments. If you include the replies the way the old site did, the number would probably be closer to 100.

    “One Moment, Please”

    Another problem I see with the “Replies” staying hidden unless chosen for a specific original comment: it’s going to suppress the total comments count since people will no longer be replying to replies as much. You have to click every comment/reply combo to read them all, and re-read if new replies posted since your last visit, something less likely to be done. So you may not know, for example, that AGENTX gave a reply to CINDERELLA327 that in turn you would normally post a further comment on. Long discussions will in some ways be stifled.

    While I don’t love the new format, I do appreciate the fact that the strips are now shown in a larger format. For example, I had never seen the nameplate on the Cottage 4-2 lady’s desk that revealed her name as “Emily Love” before. (Other people in the comments had mentioned her name but I hadn’t seen where that came from.)
