    Let's start with dislikes, because there is just few of them:
    • Inserting quotes into message is now bit coplicated.
    • 'Home' button that logouts you.
    And now likes:
    • Graphic style is briliant. I especially love that blac pop-ups.
    • Likes.
    • Indicators, if a user is online.
    • Message editor.
    • Profiles.
    • and the rest... :-)
    I love the new forum and what are your opinions?

    Things I like:
    • It's much easier to colour your words
    • Being able to see formatting as you apply it instead of having to click the Preview button
    • Undo and redo buttons
    • The very helpful New Posts section
    • Alerts
    • The option to not see signatures
    And probably a lot of other things, but I'll have to have another think. As for dislikes, I can only think of a couple of minor things.

    I was a little confused by the quoting as well. but if you are only quoting one person if you just hit reply it makes it a lot easier

    I forgot to write this. Alerts are very useful.

    I also like showing notification about new messages in thread while you are writing. It really helps in threads like This or That or Favourite.

    Yes, I'm really enjoying the new forum. I've not found anything to dislike yet. It's feels all new and refreshed.

    I hate having to tap on a little tiny gray circle with my large clumsy thumb to read where the new messages start without missing and hitting someone's profile, the start of the thread, or some other random thing. Otherwise, it's a really nice forum - looks nice, as I'd hoped, although I haven't had much opportunity to fiddle around with settings trying to be kept up with the increased posting.

    Oh, and also, why can't I like my own things when there's an ignore function?

    I think the way the forum shows everyone EXACTLY WHAT YOU'RE DOING is a bit stalkerish.

    I haven't long logged into the main forum, but apart from having to set up a new account to log in, it's quite nice.

    The other account 'Marbloid' still exists but it wouldn't accept my password. When I followed the reset link, it accepted my email information, but no link was sent to my email. It wasn't even in spam.

    When I set up the new account a link was sent, albeit to 'spam'.

    It's not a big deal as I prefer 'Mardroid' name to 'Marbloid' and I use it elsewhere. In fact Seb, please feel free to delete my Marbloid account. Probably a good idea to check the new password link though, as it:s only a matter of time before someone needs it.

    Right, first of all I WAS NOT and second of all, it appears this has been fixed! Earlier you couldn't untick "show current activity" under "show online status", but now it works! Yay! Happy stalking everyone! ;-)
