    Suggestion: The ratio of usernames size to written text is nil (they are bold, but same size). Increasing font only makes everything larger, but no distinctions.

    In the past the usernames were at least four points larger. This would help IF there is an adjustment for this.

    Thanks, man.

    Spark, the new format is fine but my post count is zero (I had nearly 900) and I am seeing ads with a subscription? What happened here and can it be fixed?

    The "insert image" icon looks a little different now -- like this: [​IMG]

    When you click on that a dialogue box pops up -- choose "from URL" if the image you want to post is already hosted on the web somewhere; choose "from computer" if you have it on your own computer and want to attach it.

    I would prefer really black text instead of the current greyish.

    I said I would wait, but this is one I have not seen mentioned.

    The list of recent threads is not showing which sub-forum the thread appears in. There are a few sub-forums I don't bother with and it would be nice to know where the threads are so I don't waste my time.

    Yeah, without knowing what forum the recent posts are from, it can be hard to judge what they are about by the title alone. Also, I used to use those parent forum links to get to the forums quickly sometimes.

    I used to like it when you were on the recent threads page and you could see what forum the topic was under. Now I don't know if its a WSS, PT, custom makers or political. What forum it is posted under does make a difference to if I will click on it or not.

    Can this be reinstated?

    OK I have a question.I just replied to a thread then clicked on new posts aka "what's new" & normally that thread would be at the top of the page as in "most recent reply".It's not with the new setup.It's not even on the first page.:confused:Why is this?
    The JD forum does the same thing.It's not really a gripe,I just prefer it the way it was.
    Thanks

    Only allows access to "Quick Reply" Perhaps that is intentional, but it is unique in my experience.

    Recent posts? Recent threads? If you mean New Posts, the column to the far right has the forum they're in.
    (What's New? on the top bar or New Posts on the bar below that are the same.)

    That's weird. I'm not sure what's going on here. This is a unique problem. I also don't see your subscription. When did you pay for it, & what method?

    Should be fixed

    Will investigate

    Can you give me the exact URL where you are seeing this?

    Can you give me the exact URL where you are seeing this?

    Can you give me the exact URL where you are seeing this?

    Can you give me the exact URL where you are seeing this? Which forum was that in.

    Need more info. Which "reply to thread" button specifically?

    I noticed my old bookmarks ceased to function, I had to make new ones. Does this mean that intraforum links in old threads will all be broken now?
