What is happening to this forum?
There seem to have been some recent changes to the forum, which, in my opinion at least, are making things more difficult.
Firstly, the forum will allow a user to type a reply to a post, before requesting that the user logs in. This can be very annoying, as what has been typed is then lost when you have to leave the current page in order to log in. If we MUST log in each time we visit the forum, rather than allowing a permanent cookie to be set (which I have mentioned before, and would be much easier), can we have the log in request as soon as the Reply button is clicked, rather than after writing the post?
Secondly, what's this new 'Photos' tool? I have just tried to upload an image, which I managed eventually, but the 'Photos' dialogue doesn't fit on the screen, so the 'Post' or 'Insert' button isn't visible! I'm hopeful that this is a 'work in progress', which will improve, but I don't see the advantage over the old 'Insert Image' tool.
