The new look is nice, gonna take some getting used to but I have to ask, is it possible to find "replies" now?  Also, can you still stay logged in?  I haven't entered my password in a long time and it took me a few tries to remember what it was.

OK, I found replies right up at the very top, not where it used to be.  Still wondering if we need to use our password each time we come to the forum?  Maybe I'll find that next.

The "unread" and "replies" is all the way in the far upper left corner of the screen.

OK, I also found the stay logged in thing.  Gotta log out with the "Forum Log out" up at the top and then use that to log in.  Just typing it into the boxes on the top right doesn't bring up that page.  Glad I could answer all my own stupid questions (although Bluesman almost beat to me to my own answer).

Hmmm. High contrast and low resolution. That's what I'm seeing right now. Snappy interface.

Looks good to me, but I've only seen it on the iPad so far.  I'll check it on my laptop tomorrow.

It would appear that the #new option is no longer being recognized. Topics display the first post either way.

When I click the "new" button on topics it takes me to old posts - is this because of the older version thing that was loaded?  Is this going to just catch up this time, or is it going to be a problem forever?

Also, when I post a new message it refreshes the page, but puts me halfway up the page or something, rather than at my new message as it did before.

No more PM/new messages counter at the top.  Do we still get the new message window when there is a new message (if selected)?

Also being sent mid-page instead of to the first new post since last visit.

What do all of the colored boxes under your user name represent?

How quickly one becomes spoiled, eh?  :o

Looks like the colored boxes have replaced the stars.  Red boxes for the admins, blue for the moderators, and yellow for everyone else.

I'm getting the jump to the middle of the page too.

The 'go to last post' feature no longer works.  It just takes you to the first page of the thread.

They ran out of space for all of Tom's boxes and started over   :)

I like the new look. Very slick. I'm also having trouble with the "new" button taking me to older posts. Don't suppose there's a mobile version on the way? I probably spend half my time here on my phone.
