    Yeah, no more tickers. No more number of posts/join date. And I don't see any ability to see a user's other posts. Those were all features I used often.

    ok now that i have looked at it... how do i find discussions i posted in, not just ones i created? why is it so hard to read? whats with all the white space and tiny bunched together font? why cant you read the topics on the main page without hovering. i am sure these changes are for mobile use but one needs a forum that works well for both and so far... i see it as not that improved. except for all those editing options and picture adding, which is very cool.

    It will take some getting used to.
    I don't hate it.

    I had to click on Recent Discussions just to be able to read the whole headline for the threads ;)

    I do not like it thus far. Text is far too small, pictures are far too small and I had been hoping for a 'like' option for posts, the same as you get on your newsfeed.

    +1 will have to do for likes still.

    There are a bunch of features (such as Likes) that we can turn on as we go forward. We've started with a smallish set of the available features so we can achieve stability before we start opening Pandora's box.

    We are encouraging feedback and suggestions in Website Suggestions topic.

    (Hot tip: click the star at the top of any topic you want to follow and you can jump to those topics in the star menu at the top right… and when you return to a topic, you're placed at the last post you read)

    The number of new post threads show might be the only new feature I like.

    curious - how do you track the forum topics that you have posted in????

    My Discussions at the top of the page

    Mine just has the discussions I started, not all of those I've posted in. Am I missing something obvious?

    yea, mine is the same …when I click that it just shows topics that I started, not topics that I have been posting in …

    annoying..

    maybe it is a temp bug...

    Sad. That was the easiest way to follow up with someone asking for advice to make sure they got the answers they needed and didn't have any more questions.

    Apparently, at some point we can bookmark any topic to follow. I assume, without posting in it. I see no explanation of how we can follow current topics we've posted in though.

    Somehow a discussion that has been around forever (Official Nightworker Thread) has disappeared. It would not link from my profile via a comment I made just the other day.
    Time for a practice picture here:

    Perhaps this didn't work like an above poster because the image is quite large - I have a good camera.
    Hmm, the whole thing will take some getting used to - finding everything again.

    Not sure how I ended up with three pictures!? WHAT! now the other two copies disappeared? ... :o

    Well, it's a change. The jury's still out on whether I like it or not. However, for the time being...I miss the way it was.

    In the meantime...

    oh I see …that is kind of annoying as I will have to star every thread that I comment in, rather then just having MFP do it and they show up in "my topics"
