I think it's looking pretty slick. Like it a lot!

For anyone who was a bit confused as I was, the 'New Posts' link (and others) have moved to a drop-down on the main forums button.

I want thread icons back.



I can't function properly without those.

Forum body background could be a little bit darker than the same white as the posts' background.

Took me a moment to find it - that's pretty much the way I read the forums.

Everything is very BOLD now!

- Threads with new posts are Bold.
- Hot threads aren't indicated anymore

Is it the hot threads or new post indicator that you are looking for?

Don't like hunting for the little "New Post" arrows which are now mixed in at the end of the titles.

Also (probably due to font) pages now seem to be taller/longer, despite having user badges moved to the left of posts (instead of being on top.) Meaning I have to scroll/swipe more to read.

And it's removing all my line-breaks. (Which are being retained - if I edit a post, they are present in both editor modes.)

This new look is going to take some getting used to. At first blush I do not like the new look, but my biggest problem is that it looks as if some functionality is missing. For instance, how do I jump to the first unread message in a thread?

I always orientated myself with the "you have posted in this thread" icon.

It was also helpful to quickly ignore stickies and locked threads.

Can you point me to a thread or post where line breaks are lost?

it seems they are working here.
