    Welcome to further aggravation. After reading your post I checked and all of my feedback - for some high end knives included, has disappeared! :eek:

    That really sucks and my hope woud be that it would be retrievable through I-Trader (a 3rd party utility right?)

    I noticed over the past few days that not all the forums show up when I am on the "new posts" section. Notably Whine and Cheese, and The Cove. Not sure if it might be related to an adult or family setting that I overlooked. However I do find "political" in there, which I would assume to be adult only.

    W&C and PC are off-limits forums. We don't need outsiders looking in. I believe that's off-limits for searc engines also.

    Political Arena is not an adult forum ( :D ) just off-limits to non-paying members. This was instituted because many political junkies were swarming in from outside, no interest in the rest of Bladeforums, and trolling the PA. As fast as we'd ban them, they'd re-up. They aren't so fast to pay for the opportunity to troll, though.

    No biggie, but I'm pretty new posts in those two used to show up in "New Posts" searches.

    On edit: it seems they still do (show up under "What's New")

    They always did before, and still do for me.

    Cove shouldn't show for Registered Users or guests.

    I like very much this new light blue/gray? background. Good stuff. Good on my eyeballs. Hope this stays and that you add other flavors eventually.

    Me likey too. It's just muted enough to be easy on the eyes. The dark theme went a bit too dark but I hated to gripe as I tend to like a darker theme just not black.

    You probably already know this, but in case you haven't noticed, the top left corner has the VBulletin logo showing instead of the BladeForums logo. :)

    You do? I guess it's on my end...will try dumping temp files, cache, and such to see. Thank you Esav. :)

    False alarm. Sorry Spark. the VB logo must have been saved in my Favorites website data file from earlier today. the BF.com logo shows now after doing a sweep, just like Esav says. :)
    Am using Bold Grey, BTW... I like it a lot, thank you! :thumbup:

    What I would like to see then, is for paying members to see all forums displayed in "new posts" that are allowed for their membership level. Registered Users would see only what they are allowed in New Posts also. Is that possible with the new format?

    Unless its been fixed I now get W&C and cove showing up in new posts. Yesterday I downloaded internet explorer 9 from Microsoft, maybe that has something to do with it. I find E 9 much slower than E 8.

    OK maybe its just me or what I'm used to. But the envelope that represents the threads is back wards than anything I've ever seen. In my experience its closed until you open it. These are open and after you've read it, it shows the envelope closed. Just weird/different. I keep thinking the opened ones Ive read and its the other way around?
    It would be nice if it were more obvious what threads you've read and which ones you haven't, change color, or go from bold to regular after you've viewed them. I don't know, just my 2 cents.

    Edit : AAHHH, I just realized the boarder of the envelopes are slightly different. Read vs unread....I'm color blind and the colors of the envelope boarders are HARD for me to differ-ate between the two....crap.
