Is there a reason why I can no longer edit a game classification? Specifically I tried to update 7 Ate 9 but nothing happens when my cursor rolls over the classification hyperlink on the main page.

Do you want to submit a correction, or vote in the poll? Both seem to work for me.

I can get the edit to work.

But, where are the polls now?

under CLASSIFICATION, go to Type and click the little graph link on the right

look at the new entry Star Wars: Destiny, currently Uncategorized

I do believe it takes some minimum votes (maybe 5) to add a classification

Thanks,

That's why I dislike the new layout. It's a easter egg hunt to find where you click things to get places now.

I do Geekmod on all three domains ... every day
... I have image admin power on all three domains

by doing Geekmod, I have found lots of human errors and problems
... duplicate images, wrong database entries, etc
... I can move images, I can help some users and admins, I submit corrections

I have also learned a lot about the new page layout on BGG meeple

* I have grown to like the new BG page meeple
... I learn something new every week, as I did for the old game page
* there is a learning curve
* I know they are fixing the little bugs
* I suspect they are writing additional code
* in my admin duties, I helped new and veteran users with navigating the Geek
* I will never know everything about the Geek

I did notice and I was trying to be nice and informative at the same time

... I only learned about the CLASSIFICATION graph this month



on learning new things
three weeks ago, Matt (Octavian) ask for help on a Geek feature, related to work I did in the past
I sent a reply, then I thought about it and did some closer research
I modified my reply

this is what I got back

I was interested in submitting a correction but when I moved my cursor over the word "Classification" nothing happened when I clicked on it. I now believe it may be because my Safari browser is only 5.1.9. Odd that this didn't impact anything else on the page.

I know I should upgrade my OS 10.6.8 software but I stuck with the existing system because of a legacy program that I still need for my business. I'll just use my desktop computer in the future. Thanks for responding.

Using 9.1.3, nothing happens for me when a click on the word classification. But, for me I can click on the pencil next to the word to get to submit corrections.

I couldn't see the pencil at first since it's light coloured.
