    I'm on mobile. I hope I didn't just uncheer. It wouldn't go through (my connection isn't the best). If I accidentally uncheer you, that's actually a cheer. 🙂 Do entries still show on your page after you complete a goal?

    Closing this goal

    as now the beta version is done. I think I can move around the site fine now and I know how things work. Posting, cheering, following and seeing peoples activities is pretty easy now.

    This version is much different from the old version, but I would expect that. Everything changes. It is just nice to have 43Things back.

    I did miss it.

    Here's my latest frustration: uploading pictures that are oriented correctly! Any picture taken with my phone in portrait (v. landscape) orientation appear sideways when uploaded to the site. I don't know how to correct this, whether in the moment or afterwards as an edit.

      @choosejoy I had this same problem. I fixed it by cropping the picture so it was a more landscape orientation. It then rotated 90°.

      It may not work for all situations as I only had this issue once.

      I hope this helps.

    I guess I've got it figured out so far. There are plenty of features that feel like they're missing. I'm not drawn to the site as I used to be because it still seems to be missing a component that would make it easier to access the community. Maybe I'm not trying hard enough. I'll find hope in the fact that they still call it 'beta'.

    Seems to be improving, though when I really get going I still outrun the cursor

    I have spent some time maneuvering around the site and pretty much have the basics down; cheering goals, adding goals, finding people, etc. So far it all is pretty basic. I just found out hitting enter "sends" the goal. So how does one create a new paragraph? Maybe we don't use paragraphs to delimit thoughts anymore.

    (I just discovered you use shift-enter to create the paragraph). So That is figured out.

    One cannot cheer posts here. I did see in notifications you can turn on and off cheers for posts, so maybe that is coming soon.

    So it all looks good so far. Very nice to see this site back up. I truly did miss it.

    Does it happen for anyone else that the text I type sometimes shows up really really slowly on screen? I've experienced this now from two different computers as well as on my mobile, so I guess it's a site issue. Here's hoping things speed up soon!

      @choosejoy I just put in my first post and noticed what you did, the text appearing slowly and well after I typed it. It is a bit annoying, especially if I have to backspace to correct my horrible spelling.

    Can I really only cheer goals, not entries?
    Are cheers unlimited?

    So weird that I can see who is following me. I mean, I guess it's nice to know. But I enjoyed the mystery of that in the old site.

    And how do I shift the positioning / zoom of my profile photo?

You can type any date in plain English like in 3 weeks or next month.
You can also type in recurring due date like every day, every week and every month.
