Anyone knows whether a deluxe membership will get rid of the ads (is this membership still available) ? I don't mind paying a regular subscription like for YouTube to get rid of ads.

I'm using the Samsung browser on a tablet in portrait view (Chrome is similar; doesnt matter whether you are using web app). What really IRRITATES me is that each time I go to a new page on the forum, the items on the page will be moving around for a second or two, as it formats the ads on the page. Very often, I would want to click on a link only to miss it as the whole page shifts because of the appearing ads. WTF!

The whole experience has become a real pain.

Why the bug reporting thread showing this error message again ? Can view all other threads except this bug reporting topic.

Windows 10, browsers : Edge & Chrome same thing.

Service Unavailable
The server is temporarily unable to service your request due to maintenance downtime or capacity problems. Please try again later.


Every now and then I see this error, which only happens for this bug reporting thread. Usually it will become ok after some time.

It seems trying to view the last page of this thread will trigger this error. Can view all the earlier pages, except the last page.

Not yet, but hopefully we'll have.
The current User CP tracks your replies, threads you've chosen to watch/bookmark and if you've left a reaction. So the latter is an option for you to check on what you've seen/read without actual participation or bookmarking.

For now.
I think the move to this new platform is a premature one since some of the much needed features aren’t available.

Management should’ve got the development team to have all the old features made available before migrating to this new platform. Also the UI isn’t half as user friendly as the one on the HWZ app. Newer in this case certainly isn’t better.

You're very kind. I would characterize the move as a disaster from a user perspective.

But then again, perhaps the move meets the revenue objectives of SPH. So in their eyes, it has been a resounding success. Users be damned ...

can i request for the sticky section to be trimmed down? this together with the ads really make scrolling down a chore. alternatively cut down on the size on those ads.

appears on all pages, including the thread list. And when the notification goes to zero, when I go to next thread (not supposed to have notification), it will shows up 1 and then quickly goes to zero.
oh i think thats cos need to clear the notifications beyond 1st page. bottom left theres a "show all" then clear from there

I don't really understand...
seems like a bug. If it's a feature, then better change it cause if I don't have any notification, I see a red 1 and then it disappears, confusing.

For long threads, I will sometimes get landed on page 2 or 3 of thread (instead of page 1) when I click on title. Is this because I had a setting to remember where I left off enabled? How to disable it?

At the moment, it seems to know/track what you've viewed and land you where you've supposedly not seen the new posts.

If you have seen all the posts within the thread, clicking on the title brings you to the first post (or the last post based on your display view settings on VBB).

Fortunately, you can jump to the last page directly without entering the thread.

Check out tip no.11 here:-


You can also search for them --- the advanced search is quite comprehensive.

You can also click your own profile user name and, click it again to land on the dedicated profile page -- that will give you options to see all your contributed posts/threads.
