Groundspeak been tweaking again :(
« on: January 17, 2016, 11:09:11 am »
I noticed the alter email format has changed to a more spaced version, so you need to scroll to read it all, no great shakes but is it a slightly larger email now?

Also they have tweaked the Play menu and now changes depending where you are. So now when you go into your PQ's, the Play menu doesn't have PQ menu item listed, so you have to go back to your home screen to get back the PQ menu item in the Play menu  :o ???

Not very helpful if you are doing several PQ's :(

Considering GS seem to be pushing the app/phone side of things, using HTML for emails sure upsets the users using phones for reading emails!
Not too helpful for those reading emails on computers either...  ::)

AND... They plan to remove HTML from logs. Why remove from one part of the site, then ADD it to another?

Work gets in the way!

Yes, I preferred it how it was...

I do think the move from HTML in logs makes sense - although so many existing logs will now be ruined, I've used HTML in mine for links and to make some text italic for 1000+ finds!  :-\
