Hi, all:

On Monday, June 1st, we will be updating this forum to a newer version.

There will be no loss of functionality, but it will definitely look different. After the change, we can tweak a few settings to make it look a little more like what you're used to, but please be prepared for a change!

A major advantage to the new version is that it looks really good on mobile devices. I know that a lot of you use your phones, so you may appreciate the cleaner, more modern experience.

There is no downtime required for this change, but it's possible that it might happen while you're on the site. If that happens, don't worry--it'll get sorted pretty quickly.

I have featured this topic across all forums to make sure that you all see it, and I will also send out an email from the system.

The format of the various forum pages which list the topics is different from the old format,

A blue star at the right means that the topic is one which has been featured.
The orange New is of course one with new posts on.

As in the past clicking on the title of a topic takes you to the originating post on the first page.
Under the name of the originator you will see any reactions which have been made on the originating post.
Then under that you see Last reply (plus name and date) which as before takes you to the last post.
One thing which has gone is the First Unread Post link (and that orange new symbol doesn't do anything). I don't know if that may return in the future.

 

The most noticeable change is that we now see up to 5 avatar pictures to the right of the title of the topic page. Those are the latest 5 posts made to that topic and are from most recent, then the previous one from left to right. If you click on one of them you get to that posting. So the first avatar picture is another way of getting to the latest post.
