Here is another example where the contrast has been enhanced as also the QuoteTags (makes it far easier on the eyes than the blinding white background — without looking tacky):—

Here is a screen cap of the problem. I leave each forum open in a separate tab and have Chrome reopen all prior tabs on restart.

The new notification count shows up in all forum rather than the one that has the new topic.

The following 4 buttons (illustrated below) have rather poor visibility and need some urgent love:—
  • Edit Button
  • Report Button
  • Delete Button
  • Quote Button

Not at all impressed by the new format. Very much prefer the old one.

The display fonts are atrocious!
Too Small!
Too Thin!
Not Dark Enough!
Far too much wasted space between threads etc!

The speed (mentioned by others including yourself) is much slower!

PM screens are all F'd up!

Etc etc :gag :gag

Two other problems, or differences, I've already noted:

(1) The "New Post" Icon does absolutely NOTHING unlike the old one did. The old one took you to the Oldest Unread post but this one just sits there and looks stupid! (i.e. Dumb!) It would be much better if it acted in the same manner as the old one did.

(2) Even when the user clicks on the Thread Title, it doesn't take the user to the oldest unread post (which the old forum s/w didn't do either, but ...), so the user ends up having to scroll all the way through the thread to find the last stuff htey hadn't yet read. :facepalm :facepalm :rant :help Alternatively, if #1 is fixed then this one (#2) is fine.

Just noticed something peculiar about the buttons (Edit, Delete, Report, Reply). :scratch :?

They are ONLY Present/Visible if/when the User's cursor is over a particular post. ALL other posts DO NOT show the buttons, unless and until the User moves their cursor over the given post.

I'd like to see the RHS SideBar (Customer Care Centre) removed — at least from the forums since it's hogging horizontal real estate. :(

The whole width including the CCC is scaleable to a point when you shrink the width of the window.

Not seeing the "highlight" on the orange here on my system. It stays the same color irrespective of where the cursor is placed
