    I thought there was an increase in spam last week, even before the BB change. Not sure what's up with that, but it's annoying.

    Someone suggested only bolding the titles of new thread, not the poster, date/time, etc. I think that would be nice if it's not too difficult.

    Thanks for the fixes already made!

    Ok, I tried to give this post the thumbs up, but I hit the thumbs down by accident, and now I can't change it. One more reason to eliminate the thumbs down option!

    THANK YOU for making the red go away!!! That was my #1 complaint; everything else is minor in comparison. Phew!

    At the top of the page it says 'You last visited: Nov. 1, 2012 at 01:56 PM'. Which would be great if I had not been on here after that yesterday and again this morning several times.
    If I go into my profile it has a more current date and time.

    I don't remember it being this bad.
    We started seeing an increase in spam again a couple of weeks before the upgrade, and we tried changing the registration question we implemented a while back, but it hasn't helped much. The spam issue is one of the reasons for upgrading -- the new software allows us more options in spam prevention, which we'll tweak as we get through putting out the initial "fires" from the software upgrade.

    Still reading all the comments, but I have an easy answer for this issue, so wanted to address it.

    Thanks!

    So I am with the people who find this tough on the eyes and are just skipping the COTH. Sad, cause I have been coming here a long time. Not a web guru, so I am having trouble identifying what I hate. Mostly, I think that it is the narrowness of the useable area. It is maddening. I am using Mozilla.

    I really like the recent changes, except they broke the "Post Reply" button again and now I can't tell read from unread posts in a thread. I miss that little orange icon which told me which posts were new since I last logged in....

    I think part of what makes it hard to read is the print is not as dark. It's like there is a grey fog over everything. Even enlarging the window on my iPad, the print just seems faint.

    I don't like how different main forums look different. If I hit "Chronicle Forum" or "Forum" up top, the print looks like it used to. But if I hit "Discussion Forums", it's this weird tiny print with serifs. I prefer the old sans-serif font.

    Darn. The double-tap-to-enlarge on my iPad seems to be not working again.

    I was having trouble posting from my iPad (Safari browser) last night. I would type a post, the whole thing was there in the text window, but then when I hit "Post Quick Reply," only half of what I had written would show up in the post. I'm not sure if it was a symptom of the recent forum changes, or just an iPad thing. But I'll be watching to see if it happens any more. Perhaps the forum software or my iPad is telling me something (I am too verbose!). But it was really annoying!

    Thanks for alerting me to yet another cool CoTH feature that I never knew about until it ceased to exist

    FWIW, I can post fine from my iPad.

    I had trouble yesterday posting on my iPad -it locked up. But it was only once.

    It seems the double-tap thing comes and goes. Don't know if it is related to this site or not. I notice it here because I'm here the most, but a minute ago it didn't work on another site either, but once I closed Safari and came back, it worked again. I suspect it's something with this site, though, because it never happened before the upgrade, and when it does happen, it's always here.

    Just noting it was only once I tried posting lengthy responses of a couple of paragraphs or more that I had an issue. But might just be a weird thing with my iPad, or me!

    Yep, I can do long ones too! (I'm currently posting from my laptop so this is irrelevant, but I have done long posts on my iPad over the past few days). So it might have to do with operating system or something like that. I have the newest iPad, and use Safari, but no clue what edition of Safari it is.

    I miss that too. It's a pain going back to the main forum page to look at a particular forum. It was sooo easy scrolling to the bottom and click on a forum.
