      Major Update to OL (please click to open)   02/09/2016

      Sorry for the inconvenience, but we had to update OL and there have been some serious changes made by IPB. The real bad news is that they had to merge User Names and Display Names. This meant that I had to choose between bad and bad. I opted to keep the log-on information the same, so you can get on OL like you always did, but now your User Name is displayed. If your User Name and Display Name were the same, you will not feel the change. If they were different, you are probably irritated right now. I will figure out how you can change this so you can revert to the Display Name you used before if you like, however this may entail a change in how you log-on. The good news is that OL is now searchable from the very beginning. This means all the old posts from the A-Team in Objectivism (and everybody else) will finally show up when you search for something. I will keep changing this announcement as we adapt to these new changes. It's a pain, I know, but after looking around the backend for a bit, I believe the benefits will far, far outweigh the current irritation. They changed things in a hamhanded way and I don't like that, but I can't do anything about it. Benefit-wise, they actually did a good job, so please bear with us. In addition to this change, many good things are coming over time. You are the reason OL exists and I am sorry you have to go through this. Think of it like birth pangs... (All right, all right, that's forcing it.  ) Michael

Changes to Corners of Insight

Changes to Corners of Insight

I got an offline suggestion and I thought it was a great idea.

I have rearranged the Corners of Insight a little bit. Some who were in "Corners of Further Insight" have been moved out to the normal "Corners of Insight" and some have been moved in.

I also put them in general alphabetical order, except for the actual placement of "Corners of Further Insight" and the ARI and TAS Corners, which stayed in the same place as before.

Part of the decision of where to place things was totally objective and part was totally subjective, as befits any interior decorating.

But at least it's a bit tidier.

Michael,

This is on a different topic, but can you tell me how to change my avatar (the pic on the upper left)?. For some reason, the new format automatically changed it to the pic you see now, but I wanted to return to the one I used before.

I figured this out earlier, but I can't seem to figure it out now. I might have simply forgotten, and this is probably what has happened. but I thought the new system might be a little different.

Thanks,

Ghs

George,

I imagine you click on your name at the top, go to "My Settings" and change the photo.

Irrespective of that, on checking, I see that they new version of the forum software is now integrated with Gravatar.

I suggest you go there and set yourself up an account. This will make your photo/avatar issues a lot simpler all over the web. Even Wordpress has integrated with Gravatar.

If you have further problems, let me know.

Michael
