  1. Just FYI, yesterday I received +10 notifications from one thread alone without visiting the forum...it's pretty clear that the "only send one" option is broken.
  2. @SandervG Beeing nitpicky again...but this change, although it improved the behavior a lot, still doesn't get you to the top of the first unread post... As you can see in the image you are taken to an anchor that still hides the top part of each post...and you need to scroll back to: See if you actually are at the top of the post See the context of the text...aka. the post topic that is written at the top of each reply.
  3. Having to go into nit-picky details about what, in a post, you want to be notified about should not be necessary. That is not something I have _ever_ had to do in an online forum. This is the first forum software where this question has come up. To summarize: If I select to receive a notification about a topic I expect to receive a notification when something has happened in that topic...be it a quote, a new post or a tag. The topic has had activity, I wanted to be notified, so a notification should be sent. It's as simple as that. If I select to receive a notification
  4. The notification settings is, so far, the only annoyance I really have with this new forum software. It does not work as their own wording describes, and thus not as most other forum software works, and this morning I had to delete a gazillion emails...and multiple emails from the same thread...even tough I never visited the forum while I was sleeping
  5. AFAIK the E3Dv6 1.75mm is still an all-metal hot-end. The one with PTFE is the E3Dv6Lite. But from what I have read/heard the 1.75mm version of the E3Dv6 has far less issues with PLA than the 3mm version. Prusa switched from the v6Lite to the full v6 in Mk2 and everyone seem to be printing PLA fine with it
  6. No they don't. The "smoothers" are really intended for the DRV8825 (if you read all the details from various sources closely). But they do work, to some extent, also with the A4988, as shown here...but with other drawbacks as some have reported. For the A4988 the better "solution" is to solder the ROSC resistor...but that is however a fix that requires more skills, and guts, to apply.
  7. @DidierKlein Sure...I can turn off everything...but I was reporting that the advertised function does not work as intended...aka a bug I like to be notified that something has been updated...so I can go back and check it when I have time...this same function is available in most forums...and this is the only forum where it doesn't work...although both me, reading the description, and @sandervg, made the same assumption about how it should work. Btw, the function to "tag" someone doesn't seem reliable either...I tagged @SandervG above and it didn't work...but now when I e
  8. Unfortunately this option doesn't work as we believe it should, and how you now also explained it,....the forum still sends an email for every update to a post even though you never visit the forum. Sp if you are following a lot of popular posts you will get "spammed".
  9. Glad you got it all sorted out in the end There were some leftovers for me too. But also a couple of springs like this, that you can use to add more tension to the belts. But I never used them. I guess they can be useful when the belts starts to get worn. But I threw them out well before that.
  10. Yay...thank you for that! I was thinking, but never got around to mentioning it, that apart from those issues the menu also took up precious screen area. Not really noticable on a desktop...but on a laptop it felt bad.
  11. Something must be really wrong if the belts are that loose. On mine, before I switched to GT2 belts, they did not require any additional tension. But there are tensioners supplied with the printer...4 small spring-tensioners. Although based on your description I don't think they are enough. I would contact the reseller and ask for help or new belts.
  12. Currently I receive one email for every post and like etc. that was made for each topic that I am subscribed to. So if I were subscribed to a lot of "popular" topics I would be "drowned" in emails
  13. Afaik the fans are the same...or possibly a slightly better model...the BOM on GitHub doesn't specify which model they use. The cabling is the same though...because you can order the extrusion upgrade for the UM2 which is a drop-in replacement for the old UM2 printhead. You just swap out the old one with cables and put the new one in place with it's cables. The fan on the back can be controlled by software...but it depends on the version of the mainboard afaik. Other than that there is no difference, afaik.
  14. @SandervG I am of the same opinion regarding notifications and emails This is my current setup...and I have not changed it since I enabled "Only send one email notification for content I follow until I revisit the community" as soon as I was aware of that setting...which is like shortly after this forum was launched.
  15. @kmanstudios Yay That was the other setting I didn't remember the name of...and yes, I have it checked too...so I should only get one notification.
  16. The ridgid spacer, which you can just as easily print yourself using one of the models @conny_g linked to, will prevent the PTFE/TFM coupler from "lifting" causing internal leaks of hot filament that will, over time, degrade the coupler prematurely. With that spacer and the newer TFM coupler you can easily print thousands of hours before replacing it. You can get it from your nearest Ultimaker reseller also. They may not have it listed in their webshops...but they sell it...since its a spare part for your UM2+. (Here is the part in the Swedish resellers store)
  17. @SandervG I don't know what you have done to notifications...but since mid/end of last week i'm getting "spammed" with notifications :( (or people are more active than before ) I now receive a new email for every new post in threads i'm subscribing to...not only once...until I login again ("A notification when new content is posted"). Afaik there was another setting, further down, or something, where you could get it to behave like most other forums do...only one notification, until you sign on again.
  18. @SandervG Cool! I actually switched back already ?
  19. It doesn't...but it's clean(er) Not sure if it like it so much better...but i'm going to try it just for fun for a while (as I do not expect anything to be "fixed" in the default theme)
  20. Nice tip @Titus...didn't know about that option...it looks quite clean Even though it doesn't address all of the nit-pickes. Will give this a try at least.
  21. In some forums I visit the subject is part of each post. Having more in the menu is probably not a good idea...it is already quite big. Here is one example: http://3dprintingforum.us/viewtopic.php?f=7&t=532 Maybe just a subtle (e.g. not bold and big) "Forum thread title" text on the same line where today you can see "Posted X minutes ago". But again, it's nit-picky, and I can live without it...it is not something that all other forums have...but it is nice when you browse by opening each interresting topic in a new tab. By the time
  22. @SandervG Another nit-picky detail...when you have followed a link into a thread (in this case by clicking on the "first unread" link) you totally loose context of what the subject is. I mean, there is nothing that shows the title of the thread you are reading (the only thing cut-off from this picture is the bookmark bar and the address bar)
  23. The old nerd in me does it all the time...unless I have a scroll mouse at hands My expectation is that scrolling with the spacebar...or clicking on the scrollbar...is that the content will move down so that I can continue reading where I had to stop. Not to have to scroll back...trying to figure out where I stopped. Granted, this behavior is not unique to this site...but it is mostly news sites that has such, imo, bad behavior.
  24. @SandervG I like the speed at which things are improved And while we are at it...scrolling by using the space bar...same issue...you have to scroll back a bit for each scroll.
