    So I'm using the search function to find all posts dated 07/02 for example - as we can't seem to order the board by date like we used to! Super annoying but thats another issue.
    But when I run a search for comps with that end date, how do I find just the current ones?? I'm getting lists full of ones that are in Game Over for example, which is not what I want. Can anyone help? Thanks.

    Hello everyone. 
    I hope I am not asking the same question as everyone else and the answer has been posted elsewhere. How do I sort competitions by date order which is how I normally do it? 

    It would appear at the moment that you can't. Ive just had a look at the snagging thread and it appears they have noted that down as an issue, as well as not having the skip/entered visable on the main thread. Hopefully that means they will sort it out.

    You need to use advanced search, title E:07/02, category competition time, and remember if the button is blue then it's ticked. So you don't want subcategories or replies on.
    This is how it looks for me on that search and it doesn't seem to pick up GO.

    No hover text.

    Skips and and enters missing entirely from post phone and text.

    This for me.
    Plus...
    New posts were in bold & older/read posts were faded.
    Can't change font size when posting too, if I copy & paste then it's massive & you can't change it.
    Characters even more limited in title. Can't fit much info in but, that is one I can live with.

    I have to admit this is causing some major panic & grief for me, ha. It seems so dramatic but I absolutely love comping & I felt like I was truly organised with the way it way, this is a huge headf**k - I can't imagine that even with it ironed out I'll ever be truly comfortable but I'm staying optimistic :) MSE do like to put us first so I'm sure all our concerns will be listened to.
