"F" should be Before "G" in an Index.

Hopefully a helpful suggestion.

"F" should be before "G" in the 'FORUMS' drop-down at the top of our screens.

The 1st drop-down is "General Forum".
The 2nd is "KLR650.
The 3rd is "Off Topic".
The 4th is "Regional Forums".
The 5th is "Global".
The 6th is "Platinum".
The 7th is "Supporting Vendors".

And Last but not Least is # 8, Forum News, which finally gives us,
"Forum News, Suggestions & Help"

I'll bet you got tired of waiting for me to "Get to the Point"! "F is Before G".

Mr. Westman
Has this winter been so cold in Lander that you could not get out of the house for several months? Do you get very very very bored during that time? Is there absolutely nothing to keep you mind stimulated? How much time do you spend checking the alphabetical order of the arrangement of items in various list that you find on the internet? Is reading this reply making you sleepy?

DO YOU NEED SOMEONE TO COME CHECK ON YOU?

I should point out that pdwestman is a friend.

I don't think the moderators have any say in this. I think the order was meant to be related to relevance, or importance, or interest, or somesuch. Obviously anything but alphabetical.

I find this version of v-bulletin to be rather cumbersome compared to the old version, but perhaps it works better for youts on phones and tablets.

Related to orders of things, I usually go A, B, C, 5, ...

I just feel sad, reading time and again, anyone having to politely inform another New Member about the 15 post minimum requirement to post pics. The Forum News, Suggestions & HELP listing needs to be at the Top. I don't remember Ever Purposely going 'There', until Today!

I've actually seen some members post pics with less than 15 postings. I admire their computer skills.

I've got 2700+ postings and have never even attempted to post a pic By Myself! If I did, I might become a 'post-aholic'.

And Yes, it seems like a long winter. Even tho I had a Never Before Ride, over the local mountain dirt road, the Sunday before Thanksgiving!

Not phone friendly at all IMO. It's obviously geared towards mobile devices, with the icons and such, but the site depletes my battery quickly( phone gets hot FAST), it's sluggish, freezes often and often takes up to two full minutes to load. Every other site I visit on my phone loads in seconds.

My favorite is when I'm typing a reply and the whole thing just *poof* disappears...

I don't know what all is running in the background here, but it's very, very busy, apparently.

I don't have a fancy phone, nor a very fancy computer. But I also completely agree with your assessment of these 4 noted issues.
Even on a desk top computer, connected via Charter/Spectrum cable.
