Really?

What about the question of getting back the multiple pages as opposed to one very long page for traditional finds in our logbooks?

your reply sounded a little harsh

Yeah, and now you know why I didn't want to reply. It's a topic I'm absolutely sick of.

Okay, to repeat for those who missed it:

I had to fix the logbooks to run faster. They were slowing down the system and I optimized them. After going through several iterations where everyone just got upset and hated every change I made, I basically said, "Screw it!" I'll do it how I like it and not worry about pissing everyone off since everyone was already pissed off anyhow. At least I was happy. Maybe I'll take another look at things after I finished the Jordan Trail.

And when someone explicitly asked about the green checkmarks, I replied with the same answer. Tough it out, and maybe I'll take another look at it later.

What about the question of getting back the multiple pages as opposed to one very long page for traditional finds in our logbooks?

Same answer. Tough it out, and maybe I'll do something about later, but there are reasons I put them all on a single page.

These changes weren't made to piss everyone off--there was a reason for them: to keep AQ humming along fast, efficiently and reliably. Nobody seems to care about that, although I suspect it would be a bigger concern if AQ went down often for long periods of time for no apparent reason. It's one of those perks people tend to take for granted until it goes away.

Anyhow, I have some thoughts about what I'll do with the logbook.

But for now, it is what it is, and when I've made any changes or updates, I'll make an announcement. This answer applies to all logbook questions. Tough it out for now, and maybe you'll like the next iteration of the online logbook.

I've noted all of your concerns and I will take them under consideration. I'll be happy to read your suggestions and ideas, but until there's news to report, I don't really have anything to actually say about the logbooks.

And really, you don't want me to reply to these messages because I won't have anything to say that you want to hear. I'm doing y'all a favor by not replying. *nodding* =)

I think that means there’s hope!

FWIW, I like the single, long page b/c I can control F to whatever I want w/out having to wait for the pages to load.

Thanks for this website. I am just glad to have a hobby that is essentially free and supported by so many fantastic people who are very giving with info & help. For all those hours of trying to improve the website for the general good, my hat's off to you!

(It makes my brain ache thinking about coding & such😨. Glad it's not me!)

Sometimes quality is more enjoyable than speed.

Just to be clear, that was posted by someone else.

To those who seem to feel that no one should ever complain or find issues with the site......that doesn't mean we don't recognize the work involved. It just means we have legitimate concerns and opinions and are free to express them.

If the discussion bores you, feel free to make use of the ignore button. I've certainly used it often enough when the same subjects have been gone over ad infinitum over the years.

I wish it *was* free. lol!!!!

Gas
Tolls
Carving material
carving tools
logbooks
ink
containers
Premium Membership (for some)
Not to mention the occasional hotel room when going to events/or campground fees

Not complaining, or I wouldn't have been doing it since 2004 but I don't think there is such a thing as a truly free hobby.

Hummm.....airfare and rental car for trip to L & B in Oregon in 2008. lol

The list goes on.....lol

Nuttin' is free in dis world! lol
