I'm sure I will get used to all this white-ness, but not knowing which topics have had new replies is frustrating.
I'm seeing topics with new posts in bold again. Did they change it or is it because I'm on a different computer? Much better now.
I really dislike the amount of white. Everything seems to be floating around on the page. I think this redesign of the page is actually a step back and looks amateurish. There needs to be more color to make posts more distinct.

Also, I would like the ability to go to the first unread post of each thread. I hate scrolling through pages to see the first new post.

In addition, why are the replies and views font size so large? This is unnecessary.

I believe in manicures. I believe in overdressing. I believe in primping at leisure and wearing lipstick. I believe in pink. I believe that laughing is the best calorie burner. I believe in kissing, kissing a lot. I believe in being strong when everything seems to be going wrong. I believe that happy girls are the prettiest girls. I believe that tomorrow is another day and I believe in miracles.

I'm having difficulty multi-quoting, I click the multi-quote button like I would before and nothing happens.

Plus the multi-quotes in the discussions are not broken up to see who quoted what. Before there were boxes around them to show who posted, who quoted, and what you quoted. I was going to give an example here, but can't get the button to work.

Also, I'd like to see links in posts and siggies colorized again, or at least distinguishable in some fashion besides hovering over them. For instance, until the redesign, the word IAGirl's in my siggy was hyperlinked to the recipe. After the redesign, unless someone systematically hovered over everything, there was no way to tell I had that hyperlinked. I've since changed mine and hyperlinked the word link, within parentheses, but it's sort of a clunky workaround, I think.

Once you click to read a thread which has unread posts, there's a link above the first post to VIEW FIRST UNREAD POST. It's the rightmost link in the row of purple links in all caps. Still, I miss the clickable icon to just go to the first unread post instead of having to click to view the thread, then click again to get to the first unread.

I am glad to be on the app right now.

Spider, I do not have emoji on my old iPhone. I just went to a free copy & paste emoji site.
When I hear terms like "hipster" I think, who told cliques they could leave high school??

Yes, we need dates and times for the posts instead of an hour ago, 4 minutes ago, 4 days ago.

Also, with quotes and having the original poster's name at the bottom is confusing.

Can we return to the old format? My head now starts to hurt from trying to read posts.

I like it better than the old style - I found it kiddish looking and way too much color.

So are they finished rolling out the new format or is this still a work in progress? If it's not done yet then I don't want to complain too much, as maybe it will change.
But if the pages are going to stay totally white with no distinctions between anything, it does make it hard to read. And why make things less efficient RE: First Unread, for instance? Now it takes 2 steps instead of one. Not efficient.

all in all, i think it is difficult to navigate and is very uninviting. does not make me want to read, makes me want to leave the format ASAP!

I agree with Jeepy, and Rbb. With a couple of tweaks, it could work/look great, but I hope this isn't the finished product.

You're all ready have issues with traffic on the boards, this is not going to help.

Once you click to read a thread which has unread posts, there's a link above the first post to VIEW FIRST UNREAD POST. It's the rightmost link in the row of purple links in all caps. Still, I miss the clickable icon to just go to the first unread post instead of having to click to view the thread, then click again to get to the first unread.

I had noticed the date link and tried it, however it didn't function like the old icon. The old icon took me to the last unread post, wherever it happened to be in the thread, and it didn't matter if that last unread post fell at the end or somewhere in the middle.

Clicking the date link takes me to the last post in the thread, not the last unread post. For example, I had a notification today that there were new posts in this thread. I went to my UserCP and used the date link as suggested to try to get to the last unread post. When the page loaded, CurlyCanadian's post was at the top of my screen, however I also hadn't read rbb's post directly above CurlyCanadian's. If CurlyCanadian hadn't mentioned rbb's post or I hadn't scrolled up on my own, I would've missed that post entirely.

So, at this time, it seems the best way to get to the actual first unread post is to click the thread title link, then click the View First Unread link.

Additionally, something I just noticed is that I don't always have a "VIEW LAST UNREAD" link when viewing a thread. In my UserCP, I clicked the date link to view the Original Moxie thread. It opened to the last post, which happened to also be the last unread post. This page also had a View Last Unread link as I've come to expect since the redesign. I'm still playing with "View Last Unread" vs. the date link, so I also clicked the thread title in my UserCP to open the thread normally. When the page opened (top of the page, beginning of the thread as I'd expect), I noticed there was no View Last Unread link, although the other expected links were in a row above the first post - Display Mode, Rate Thread, and Thread Tools. Is this lack of a View Last Unread link an intended feature if all posts in a thread have already been "read", or is it a malfunction of some sort?

I'm seeing topics with new posts in bold again. Did they change it or is it because I'm on a different computer? Much better now.
