Love all the changes that have recently been made to the Soup! Kudos!
However, may I make one suggestion.
After viewing "My Poems" page, most of the time I would like to go directly to "My Comments InBox" but it takes me to "My Soup Mail" page first.
I would appreciate it if these two were reversed therefore eliminating the extra click.
Many thanks, people, for a great site!
Cheers, Jack

    Okay this is getting spookier by the minute! Ended up as a freelancer for about 30 years under the name Ellison Graphics Inc. Most of those years, I worked with a couple of different design houses on a retainer type basis... the best of both worlds! (cont'd)

    Sadly I had to retire when the last studio I worked with was bought out and I was out. I was 75 so I guess it was time! Tell me your story... hugs, and much love, Jack

    I feel the same. Anyway, if you read my blog I did last week on this topic, you can find an easier way to get quickly back to your comments by using your right click on the mouse.

    I'm a Mac user and us guys don't have a "right click" button on the Apple mouse. Maybe there's another way... I'll keep searching! Thanks Andrea!

    Hey! Jack! You got a membership with Blog ability and every thing... So Cool! Your bio is very interesting... so many don't have any. Mine would be boring. A tremendous picture of you by the way! What! No birthdate? Shame on you. I hope to be able to read more of your blogs. Will you be putting on contests, too? your friend. Carol

    I'm a very young 77! LOL And you? or is it not nice to ask a lady her age? You can always lie! I'm the publishers of our quarterly newsletter and one of the features is to interview a neighbour and ask them to tell their life story. Their immediate reaction is the same as yours... my life is not very interesting! Everyone's life is interesting! (to be continued)

    Not thinking of putting on any contests... maybe some time down the road! I enjoy our little chit chat so much... hugs, Jack

    Michael, you should scroll down to my last blog. It's all explained how you can do it without clicking so much.
    Ellison Avatar Jack Ellison Date: 10/10/2012 12:51:00 PM Block poet from commenting on your poetry

    Yes, something else... going back sometimes doesn't take you back to the previous page!
  1. Date: 10/10/2012 12:10:00 PM
    I check my mailo (hopefully) every day. I do nor care where the tab is, as I use both.

    I agree with you I rarely check my mail. We premium members should get a little more consideration on this.

    Oops the last was meant for Suzette! Sorry!

    If they were reversed, I don't think the newbies would miss the mail. Hugs and happy thoughts, Jack

    Thems are my sentiments even though I've only been a Souper for a couple of months! Cheers

    Hallo, Jack. It took me a while to get used to it as well. However, I am in agreement with soup. Not many new comers know to check their soup mail regularly. This way, one will see the inbox for the soup mail first. Love, Su
