    I take some issue with the use of "responsive" here. A lot of people conflate that with mobile-friendly, but really it means best utilizing the space a device gives you. This doesn't do a stellar job of that on larger / desktop views. It's crunched up for some reason.

    Where is the suggestion box?

    Can we have back the thread preview when you hover over the topic? Otherwise, you have to open a thread to see what it is beyond the topic.

    Honest, the gray-on-white text just isn't doing it for me. Very hard to see.

    It's so different but looks cool. Most of the Avatars are blurred. Appears running slow but way early to say right now, otherwise.

    Hey guys, surfacing for a bit to breathe. It's been a rough go, despite our best efforts and plans, plenty went wrong, lol. That's murphy's law when migrating to a custom bridge between two softwares.

    Anyway, it will be slow for awhile as I mentioned in the original messsage that indexes are being rebuilt, etc. in the background. Plus we had to stop using our CDN, it just won't work with our new member system and that spikes the load on our site.

    Anyway we're still toiling away and once things are more stable we'll start adding back in the bells and whistles. BTW the forum app is working now I hooked it back into the new forums. You may need to log out/in or turn your phone off to get it to synch with the new fora.

    Don't forget you can still browse the forums now on your phones thanks to the new responsive layout. We'll also make the font darker, I agree there as well.

    Avatars look blurry because they're larger here than they were on the old forums. Feel free to update yours!

    Do let us know of any issues or suggestions, I'm ALWAYS open to them! I love yawl! ;) (Can I get a beer now??)

    Thanks for your patience, folks. I really appreciate it.

    Ray

    Well we can still edit any post so that's sort of a big one. Unless we're all supposed to be moderators now.

    the text looks fine to me, but while I like the overall direction the forums are going, the background colors need more contrast - really hard to see the divisions between posts/sections of the page.

    SG also keeps logging me out every so often and requiring me to log back in before I can view a thread, sometimes even between pages of the same thread.
