    Great New Site Look!

Great job, Chris and team! PP’s new look is clean, the layout fresh and simple. Yet it remains familiar and retains the essence.

It’s an example of what my one-time church history professor called “traditioned innovation.” Bravo.

    SPAM SPAM SPAM

Except for the website’s inability to manage spam, which currently has incapacitated a chunk of the main page.

Come on management, can’t you figure out a fix for this?  Maybe more people need keys to the site so it can be policed more regularly.

Imho the site looks fine, wish we had a better search function.  Too many times I’ve been unable to find previous posts/information that is important to me.   Please, and thank you.

I may have to break out the laptop.
The mobile site hasn’t changed.

    Spam – can we get a “report post” button ?

It would be great to have a button next to each post that allows alerting the mods to a post, be it for spam or other reasons. Ultimate decision should still be the mods (humans), but it would hopefully speed things up with pulling obvious bad posts.

There are some weird things that don’t work right or very well. The search is one. Another is, why when I go to “replies created” under my account, don’t all of my replies show up? Usually the more recent ones are missing.

Regarding spam posts, I assume they typically from new accounts? If so, maybe new accounts should be blocked from posting until someone reviews their first posts? The posts would go to a “review” area instead of being posted on the forum. I’ve seen that implemented on other sites and it cuts most of the spam pretty well.

    Great New Site Look!

The biggest problem to address IMO is the bullshit spam filter. If you try to post a thoroughly researched post with more than a few links, you’ll be blocked. Meanwhile simple one-link spam posts are allowed through. And I’m far from the only one reporting this. It’s been going on for years. It’s a huge disincentive for your users.

I don’t see a new site look btw, it looks the same to me.
