Hi Andy:
1. Would be good to have a quick reply to private messages. I see a way to quote and forward only.
2. I keep needing to adjust the type size for pages. Seems the font size for posts are quite large? What if the quotes were displayed in a much smaller font?
3. Looking at the user cp, there are lots of new features, but I don't see a way to change my custom avatar? Maybe I've missed the buttons, I'll keep looking around.
Thanks!

5. There is no link to the Home page on any page except the Home page

There is a home button on the bottom of the page. I think it should be at the top too along with just a forum button like we had before.

Thanks, Brett! I see it now.

Another bug:

When using the site as a guest (not logged in) the "todays posts" tab returns all the posts for the last day or so but.....
When you log in and click "new posts" you get only the posts that are new since the last time you logged on.

Drop down menu? Who's online option? I don't see any of this.

Hey, under the avatar it doesn't say what kind of trailer we have anymore. I liked having that there. Otherwise I'll move it to my sig so folks always know what kind of rig I'm talking about.

Great job Andy, thanks for all your hard work! I'm seeing a lot I like in the new setup.

I also would rather see the last one to post rather than the originater of a thread. Both would be a good addition.
Bob,

Love this NEW email notification!

It gives me the posted article in the email notification so I don't have to click on a link and go to the web page to read it. S W E E T ! (like some of the other forums I subscribe too).

I also like the on line buddies box on the home page. I like it. I do not have to look for them in the currently on line mix this way.

The more I surf the site the more I like it!

OK Andy I know how few will dare tell you what they really think, so I will volunteer to be the bearer of bad news. !

So far I say it is a well intentioned gift that just doesn't fit.
Or to put it another way this is an ABOMINATION... Just a joke, tell the Moderators to relax.

My few attemps at search are much more time consuming now. I hope to heaven that the old thread numbers that I have been dutifully copying down into a journal for a year now are still valid. It seems that every computer screen change move on the site takes a longer time than before, i.e. the flow has been greatly slowed and interupted, but maybe there are shortcuts I have overlooked , (however I don't think so). I spend way too much time on-line now, Your changes may drive me to go work on the trailer more.
Hey maybe that was the whole idea!

Let me ask you this just out of curiosity (or maybe wishful thinking)..Could you put it back like it was if you were so inclined??

The last 25 is totally ruined (it is now down to 21). I recall when it was the last 30 and I would have liked the last 50. But as prev mentioned the inability to see who last posted is the main glitch there.This we can all get used to I am sure, but will they??? I am not sure this site is more member friendly or user friendly now.

You have been much praised for what you have done for the Airstream owner and wanters community. Rightfully so. Let me add my appreciation.
I would and will pay between 1-100 yearly dollars for the pleasure of using this forum I have read others offer to pay and in some old thread you declined such wanting to keep it free. You are the boss, but it would have avoided the ads, which I assure you I will seldom or never visit.

Many of the users here are very "make do" types and we will make do with what we have.
But all of this progress begs the question....What was the purpose of the change over? Will it give us greater capacity to do something? Were we running out of room of some sort?

Not knowing you except from the posts you place here, I don't know how this type of candor is recieved, I hope you take it in the spirit it was meant. No malice, no gripes...you built it and many have come...I plan to stay, It was and I hope can remain a 'Forum of Dreams'. Thanks.

Now don't get me wrong there are some ..er.. things... that I wish would just disappear back into the cornrows though.

New and highly cool....

You can control which posts in a thread you see first - oldest or newest. To change yours - go to "user CP" select "edit options" amd then "thread display options".

Cool Cool Cool Cool Cool! J.

Lest you get it any further into your rigid skull that you are the only person who dares speak the dark truth, my dear, let me tell you what I really think: Anything that makes this site more difficult for you to navigate is OK by me. Put down the huge cross of having to speak for all of us (or those of us who are sitting around wringing our hands & fearful of Andy's great wrath) and pick up a small banner that says "This is my opinion."

Here's more of what I really think, and I will volunteer to be the bearer of my own opinion: It WOULD be a great thing if Andy would just put things back the way they were--on a parallel forum for one.

If you EVER again doubt that I can say in plain language what I really think, sweetie, you just ask. I have lots more to say & could start with widespread misuse of the phrase "begs the question." While this expression is a subtle & elusive use of the English language, it is NOT synonymous with "this situation makes me want to ask..."

I'm not sure what the difference between "post quick reply" and "go Advanced". Being type A, I use quick!
