Is anyone else having problems with the board not given a link to unread messages?

I wondered if the board just went silent in frustration after all my bickering with Claw about the FCS championship game.

P.S. Fortunately, the "Unread Messages" tool under "New Posts" still works, but I do miss having the alert to the number of unread messages when I open the site.

If it can be returned, it would be much appreciated.

Thank you, admins, for the thankless job you volunteer to do here.

I won't be shocked to see a full site revamp and some changes take place around fall time. This style of format isn't really supported by the developer anymore. It's just a feeling I have. DrakeNation went through an upgrade a while back. This one probably isn't far behind.

Noticed the same thing and had to find the New Posts along the top bar... This after Tapatalk broke for PN as well...

BTW - I love this site and Ames Panther doesn't get enough credit for making it all happen.

Tapatalk going down has really harshed my buzz. I thought about starting a thread on the for a while, but didn't want to be "that guy".

Had the exact same thought. Used to check the site all the time with Tapatalk... now I only do it once a day or so on the computer. Miss the convenience.

Click new posts in the yellow toolbar at the top. Then unread messages.

Yep. That is what I am doing. I really appreciate the site, so I don't mind if I have to "endure" a few changes now and then.

And I concur with the expression of appreciation to AmesPanther. I have no idea what it takes to run this site, but I'm sure it is far more than I can imagine. Thanks.

Agreed on both points. As workarounds go, this one is minor to the point of being nonexistent.
