    I haven't found a way to do it so far. Really annoying. Will just avoid using it if it stays in this format.

    I don't either. These damn millennial's and their cell phones. Next thing you know you will be able to deposit checks and purchase food on your mobile phones. What is this world coming to!

    I've asked our developer to see if he can make the margins thinner for those of you with smaller screens, etc.

    I like the new look Ray and I am enjoying using it. The problem I have is nothing new, outside of recent post, the time displayed under each post is way off. Example: if someone posted 2 hrs ago, the time displayed would be something like 3:32pm as apposed to 10:08am. Not a big deal, I was just curious what I need to do to fix.

    I’m just thankful the leaders at SwampGas are willing to take risks and grow.

    I didn’t think there was a whole lot wrong with the old forum, but I trust this will be better...just be patient and if you do have a serious complaint; please be kind.

    God Bless :)

    :)For someone who is visually impaired the new format works well. Bigger fonts, and the phone ap is actually readable.

    Ah, I think you need to set your time zone and that's pretty easy to do! Just go to your profile settings here and click preferences and set your time zone. If you can't find it, the direct URL is here: Preferences

    I appreciate your kind words and patience. We've already made a few tweaks and will keep going at it to try and make as many folks as possible happy with what we have. This new format will allow us to add more new things as the old one wasn't compatible with the next generation of features so in the long run it will pay off. : )

    Glad you noticed, readability is key and we've switched to a font that's more "compatible" for the visually impaired with more contrasts. I know it seems brighter and harsher to some, but over time you get used to it.

    Catering to the minority. Makes perfect sense.

    It is what it is — mobile usage is fast overtaking all others, if not already.

    My only suggestion is about the previews of a thread when hovering the cursor over the thread title. If the thread title being hovered over is near the top of the screen on a desktop computer, you can only see the very bottom of the preview, with the remainder being unseen above the top of the screen. It would be nice for the position of the previews to be variable so when the thread being hovered over is near the top, have the preview position automatically shift downward so it is visible. The way it is now you must scroll up so that the thread title is positioned further down on the screen to see the preview.

    I've noticed this. It's actually a function of the forum software itself, not the style so I'm not sure that can be tweaked. I'll pass it onto the developers of the forum. Thanks!

    I wasn’t sure if your message was being sarcastic but it came off very crotchety and if his traffic is 40% mobile now that’s probably a 200% increase over the past few years and gonna continue to grow so it’s not simply giving in to the minority it’s setting up for where the future is going

    The ads on the side are not visible on a wide desktop. Not that this is a bad thing... I would actually be in favor of no ads on the paid site... But I thought you should know.
