    Looking good so far Spark, one question. I went to my in box and it says 111% full 220 messages I have a platinum membership it wont let me send a new message. Is this an issue or do I nee to learn the new format?

    In the 1st post:

    " Private messaging has now become "Conversations" - private messages from before the move are still separated out as individual replies, but from today forward if you message someone, it will be a threaded conversation. PM quotas have been increased vastly as a result. "

    So "leave conversation" is the same as "delete message"?
    There used to be an option to download/save private messages to my computer as text files. Is there some similar option I'm not seeing? Thanks.

    Small question, will the stickies on each forum be separated out to aid in scrolling down to new threads?

    Everything else looks great and I really like the "watch forum" feature!
     
  5. Looks good so far.

    One thing I've noticed: Stickied threads are kind of hard to tell apart from regular posts, I see the red pin icon but the way they were all highlighted before made it very easy to tell everything apart. It could be because I'm on a 4K monitor so the pin is pretty far off to the right. Is it possible to move the red pin to the left right before the thread title starts? Or maybe highlight them again?

    Yes, leave is the same as delete.

    Yeah, you can select the PM and a box opens, then there are options in there.

    It appears that the quota is still wrong. Mine says 50 allowed (250 messages). I did not have this many PM's in the old system.

    Hmm, I'm seeing lots of options to do things like 'star" or 'lock' or 'stick' conversations. Maybe I'm missing something obvious.
    I don't see anything that sounds like downloading or saving.
