    Well, you can’t tell by the time stamp on the date, Hermit, but when it’s fully integrated, stuff like that will be properly shown.

    Cant see a full screen. The JPR Logo and “Welcome to JPR 4.0” take up 3/4 of my screen.  Is there a way to fix this?

        Thanks!  As weird as that fix sounded it worked!   Maybe this should be added to Q&A for those of us who use PC’s to be able to see the whole forum.  I couldn’t see the new format because of the 3/4ths of the screen was Logo and aqua background.  The various Forums weren’t even showing up under the JPR Logo and background.

        There may be many of us who haven’t been able to post here since soon after the change over who might be having my same problem with the 4.0 new format.  I miss so many of the posters who used to be here and I think it is because they need help.  Particularly those of us who aren’t so tech savvy as the rest of you are.

        Anyway, thanks for the info and fix.  :-)

      Yes, need more information about your system:

      namely the browser: Firefox, Safari, Opera, or other

      the type of computer: Desktop (PC, Apple), tablet, phone

    Also welcome back to those who may have left while 4.0 was being developed

    ‘Cause that's what it would be. "Tea and cake or death? Tea and cake or death? Tea and cake or death!" Students with beards, (mimes demonstrating with picket signs) "Tea and cake or death! Tea and cake or death! Little Red Cookbook! Little Red Cookbook!" ‘Cause, "Cake or death?" That's a pretty easy question. Anyone could answer that.

    Hi! I have been lurking for awhile here. Finally made up an account today. I also jang  out on C99 with the same screen name. Long ago I dwelt on Dkos, until the exit of the Berners.

      Hey, Welcome to JPR 4.0, Freesia! I haven’t bothered with Daily Kos (as I’ve heard from others) and I think I’ve seen C99 (can’t remember when that was).

      So much to do and say, eh? I think so, anyway.

    I started a new post but it is awaiting moderation that hasn’t happened before.

    Hi there. I’ve spent about 19 years watching DU, but never said much because I don’t think “me too” posts are all that valuable and there were plenty of people already saying what I was thinking, but better. By the 2016 primaries I was utterly sickened by the chasing out of good voices who didn’t support HRC. I still lurk there and it has become more and more toxic as time goes on. I made my account here about when, during the elections, the DU site got hijacked and I was starting to get the shakes. So I’ve been lurking here but I feel I am going to get more “vocal” with current events driving me crazy.

    Not a new member. Just had to change my ID here because it seems that nobody answers admin email. When I sent email asking to restore my old account, “Rocco” several times, I never got an answer. It was never found anywhere, even in my spam. So here I am, in exile in the Netherlands, wondering how long it will be until this account gets bolluxed up.

      Welcome back. And your account should definitely not get bolluxed up again. JPR will be improving over time, but you should never have to re-register again.

    Hello Everyone!

    I got kicked out of SV right after the election. Apparently that was because I didn’t get the memo that the Democratic party is completely infallible, and not to be questioned, let alone criticized. Got alert-stalked by the Nurse (curious that she took the name of an adulterous drug addict but maybe she just liked the show)

    It should also be noted that folks like me who voted for Her, yet held our noses while doing so, are also somehow responsible for Trump because we didn’t do it with wild enthusiasm.

    I began the slow process of Demexiting way back when we gave the Dems a majority with a mandate to end the Iraq war; impeachment was off the table then too. That powder has got to be real dry by now. In the years since it has gotten much worse; the corprodem party–with a few notable exceptions like AOC–has become the party of don’t upset the Republicans.

    I could rant on and on about the other site’s identity politics and their “a Democrat can do wrong” attitude, but suffice it to say I’m glad to be here among some old acquaintances and sane people who can actually write, or at least proof their work.

      Welcome to JPR, which may be showing you its’ “slow” mode right now (loading, 500 errors) now, but will be updating as soon as we get the estimate on that, which should be SOON… Admins here have a MUCH better idea, however, it is all requiring painfully patience as a result of reality out there. JPR will be THE place we all wanted, especially in the desert of progressive sites or ones that claimed to be so once upon a time in America…

    Just a general bit of information for new members asking to join groups at JPR…

    I know… It’s a no-brainer, but I’ll ask anyway… Please begin posting in general forums before asking to join a specific group, and I’ll believe that you’ve proved your humanity that way.

    Thanks!

    Call me a refugee from discussion sites.

    I was a member in good standing on Smirking Chimp for many years,but a wave of negativity on the site led me to slack off commenting there.I recently looked in again only to find myself accused of countless sins because I’m for Bernie and not for the baby boom Democrats for whom many boomers at that site cheerlead.Some of them had a discussion thread going on FB,and as a Bernie supporter I was more or less driven off there in 2016.

     

    So I’ve been looking for a political home.I’ve lurked here since the site began,and I think this could be it.

     

    Special shout out to Rufus T.Firefly,a former Merry Chimpster like me,who was the first to greet me when I joined there.Here’s hoping he greets me again.
