The avatars seem larger than I remember. Are we allowed a higher resolution pic now?

There definitely is a lot of open space with the new layout (viewing through Google Chrome on a 24" monitor running 1920 x 1200 resolution).  Does require a bit more rolling of the mouse wheel to move up and down the posts.   I know the push here is to make the site work better for tablets and phones, so I guess you gotta do what you gotta do to fit the majority of the viewers.

My first goof. Typed in a reply without realizing it was the Facebook comment box. Since I don't have my FB account connected, off it went into the ether.

Same thing happened to me.  Taking a bit of getting used to...

Sorry I haven't helped out much here, I'm just not seeing any problems to report. Speed wasn't a problem (for me) on the previous version, but like others I have noticed an increase in scrolling speed even on this old XP machine that I'm still reluctant to replace. (I'm constantly fixing/removing malware and virus stuff from my wife's Windows 8.1, which doesn't motivate me to abandon ship just yet.)
I appreciate all the hard work needed to make this happen, I hope the new software has behind the scenes improvements that makes it easier for David and Richard to keep us in line and functioning properly.

I love the new header! ..and I think that the photo of "the bench buddies" really represents the relaxed and enjoyable, yet informative, nature of 99.5% of the "chat" here.

Well done!  :eusa_clap:  :high5:

Things are shaping up. Keep up the good work.  :eusa_clap:

Couple Things:
1) I can no longer add attachments to posts. The error message reads like either a permissions problem or a lack of destination or no available space at the destination.

2) The old forum kept a list recent posts at the bottom of the forums page, which I found useful for finding a post I had read earlier, but wanted to revisit.

Thanks,

Flash

Attachment didn't work for me either.

The upload folder is full. Please try a smaller file and/or contact an administrator.

And it wouldn't respond when I tried to post after clicking the Back link and removing the attachment. Had to go back to the topic and start over.

The one line posts still seem to be obscured by the scroll bar.

I don't get that.  Can you send a screenshot?

I like the new layout, great job!

I am missing the "go down" / "go up" button that allowed to move to the bottom / top of longer threads with just one click instead of scrolling.

UP and DOWN is back!  Thanks, Andreas.

David
