This afternoon, I received an error message while on DC that the site was being updated. Has anyone noticed that the front page of our profiles no longer has the number of points we have? Earlier this evening I saw a new feature on the home page called "Book Club" which looked like book reviews on diabetic cookbooks and other books about diabetes. When I went to look for the same feature later, it was taken off. There was some discussion about adding gifts that could be given, but I haven't seen any new ones.

The points on the top of your profile have been removed but you can still scroll down and see all the points you have earned, see the top point earners and also the most active points of the day (or week, I am not sure) Anyway, those are at the bottom of the page.

I still can't see anything beyond the first page of posts. If someone posted a message on my profile an hour ago or more, I can't see it. This just started yesterday. The other changes to the website weren't important to me, but only being able to see the last few minutes of postings means I am missing a lot.

There is a link at the bottom of your page that says "see older activity". That should take you to additional pages.
Your badges and points are not on your profile page, but a tab labeled "Badges and Points" along the top of your page. Click on that and you will see the badges you have earned and at the bottom of that are the active point people and your points as well.

I hadn't noticed the missing points on the profile but I had missed the Book Club option several weeks back; it hasn't been there for a while. We can still see our points by going to the Badges and Points tab. Maybe it was removed from the general profile because people were placing too much emphasis on "Points accumulated"? Although the amount of points I've earned is interesting, I value far more the advice and tips I've received from discussions and posts.

I got the same messages. Didn't note the book club. I looked for my points and didn't see them on on my profile but did see them when I clicked on the link to show all the badges earned. It was close to the bottom of that page. No biggie!

That isn't a problem, but I am having trouble accessing posts which do not appear on the first page. I can't tell if someone posted anything to my profile.

Mostly when I click at reply, comment, likes…options, it does,nt work. I thought there was something wrong with my computer but I do,nt know. Sometime back I did,nt see the photo word to click at for picture viewing of a particular friend, it has come back though. The web owners could explain better.

I find them easier when I go to my outside email page than I ever could by going to my profile. I have so much activity going on with my page it gets buried so very easily. Does DC post your wall postings to your outside email box? If not I don't know how to set that up, but I find it has been very helpful to me.
