So which sign-on is this?

Do we get a new 'I survived the ....'?

Gnomon - time to move on

My impression is that Pliny is working at the lightning-fast speed it always works at but the older skins are going really slowly.

Pliny is great for conversations, but I recommend that you do not edit entries using it.

Pliny isn't reliable even for conversations for my purposes, loses the copy on preview almost every time and I've seen several promising newcomers scared off by its unreliability.

We fully intend to resolve the Pliny niggles, but have been prevented because of reasons...

My old password was strong in the required ways but I was told to change it.

Hm. I can't explain that. But I hope the change went well, since you are back now? And yes, happy to see you back! smiley - smiley

It is a wee bit confusing that your "login name" is not your current onscreen identity but your email address.

re 29 & 30

Pliny is okay for conversations (when it's not as slow as it has been, mind) and I have no problems with preview that I didn't have with alabastard also.

But if I have to click back to check what I am responding to it loses what I have written smiley - erm

And I have to do that because it almost never shows me the message I am replying to. A well known glitch.

I am used to copy what I've been writing now before I go back - but it's an unwelcomed inconvenience, of course.

re 35

It doesn't have to be, Recumbentman. Mine isn't. Can't you change that in your preferences?

Milla, h2g2 Operations

yes, please update your preferences to correct values - you shouldn't use email to login. It might work if you set it up so, but it shoulnd't be so.

email [email protected] if you need help.

I'm using separate tabs on the web browser to handle the materials I'm working from and the copy I'm composing.

Though the Android OS I'm using doesn't allow simultaneous display of two or more iterations of the website, though that would be more convenient, its easy to switch back and forth between them.

h2g2 thankfully isn't restricted to single sign in.

Yes, different tabs is an excellent way to circumvent certain obstacles smiley - ok
