For users of IE 11 version: 11.371.16299.0, hitting the ‘reply’ (areas circled in red) will not bring up a post window which you would think would be the logical thing, rather, it will only display an orange circle w/ plus sign in the bottom right corner of your screen. Clicking that orange circle does absolutely nothing, and, oddly enough, prevents the post window from displaying even if you attempt to re-size your browser. If you happened to click the circle, you will have to click it once more, then, hit the re-size button on your browser (also highlighted in red above):
What displays next is a bigger window which does not allow you to preview your text/ images as you type which is very annoying:
In order to attempt to get back to the view you might be used to (with the preview pane and ability to see other posts in the thread) you have to then hit the ‘maximize’ button circled in red above and then you will see:
Sometimes the area circled in green will be scrunched to the bottom of the screen really hindered. To remedy that, you have to utilize the arrow re-size (circled in red above) but, just clicking it sometimes yields nothing. You have to not only left-click, but, left-click and hold and, it acts like a slider going up and down. Sometimes this works and other times i notice that it will not “slide” in either direction. Very odd…
Bottom line, i wish that FUNimation would integrate a similar ‘reply’ functionality similar to that of community.norton.com. Their ‘reply’ system is very intuitive AND does not require you to re-size your browser etc. just to reply to someone’s post. This wonky reply system happened at the same time we got the icons spread needlessly down the page, possibly three months ago?:
Obfuscation, undelineated functions, are really hampering navigation for users of this Website. Makes you wonder who is in charge of design… Please also note, these oddities are not just limited to IE 11. The oddity with the orange circle appearing (with no corresponding reply window from the first screenshot) can also be witnessed in Google Chrome. Once again, the site update that happened three or so months ago was the impetus for these problems and ideally, the site should revert to the design that it used to have. This aggravation has been going on for some time now with no real resolution, however, finally found some time to fully document it which can hopefully lead to qualitative change.
