Default Next Gen 3.0 sucks. Endless Scroll.

I get on here during lunch and it logs me out even though I have the link saved. I figure, fine, maybe just a glitch. When I sign in, its now Next Gen 3.0 and it won't let me revert back to any other Gen. I check a couple threads and sure as $hit, the endless scroll of pages starts. This sucks. I don't know who thought it was a good idea to do this, but it is terrible. Give us the option to go back to the other Gens of this forum.

More forced changes for the worst.... It's the flying headers that drive me crazy!

Last time I was able to switch back to classic in settings. Can't seem to find that option now.
edit: Checking disable infinite scroll got rid of the floating headers.

Thanks for that. It fixed the infinite scrolling and floating headers, as you said.

We apologize. We took extra steps to ensure folks who had previously disabled infinite scroll did not get 'bumped' back onto it, but apparently there are a number of you whom we missed. I apologize personally for that.

We changed nothing other than the version number, and we added the ability to disable both infinite scroll and related threads in your userCP/options page.

cheers,
robb

Yes, disabling the infinite scroll option also disables the flying headers that take up 1/4 of the screen...

Thanks for at least allowing us to disable the site 'improvements'. Editor is still difficult or impossible to use for complex editing than the original version, wish THAT was still an option.

If you're having login issues, please clear your Rennlist cookies and log back in, ensuring the 'remember me' box is checked. We had some weird problem with our site cookies this week, they went stale or something.

The only change we made this week, gives you the ability to turn off infinite scroll, and/or related threads in your userCP, which means this carries across all your devices and sessions, whereas previously it was done using cookies. You can change the settings here: https://rennlist.com/forums/profile.php?do=editoptions

I'm speaking from my perspective, i do not log in unless i'm going to make a post. Therefore the solution proposed does not work for me.

I'm curious about your reasoning for this. I believe there are less ads and such if you're logged in, versus logged out. Is the experience not vastly difference logged in vs out?
