I love the new feature!

When you get notified about a response to you in some thread - that is excellent! Instead of revisiting same topics over and over again checking if somebody responded - you get alerted right away and can get straight to it. You just need to set the alert settings properly - these are mine:

PS: I actually mentioned it to somebody way back when, but it wasn't a priority.

Agreed.

Don't mind that feature but can do without the popup when you mark something read.

I also find it odd, that every other forum on the internet has like/don't like buttons, yet here the new software doesn't support it? :135:

The forums software we've been using since the very start, phpbb, does not come with a "like posts" feature and never has. Quite a few years ago, we installed a 3rd-party extension that added that feature. That extension was abandoned long ago and isn't supported by the newer versions of phpbb.

As for that pop-up when you mark something read, I do find it mildly annoying as well. That being said, a few things about that pop-up are that you can click your mouse button a second time or press almost any key on your keyboard to make it go away, and it also doesn't take you away to a new page like it did in the old forums.

Justin Trudeau must have designed the new font. It's as hard to read as it is to make any sense of what he says.

Please see if you can upgrade the font to something that works better for those of us with mature eyesight. Thanks.

The font is the default font with phpbb's default theme. We can look at changing it too and will most likely make it the same as the rest of our site.

Yes, there are a number of options that I am happy to see, in particular when someone quotes you. That was long overdue.
But seeing as the other topic, "stupid changes" is locked, I'll pass on my two-bits.
I do miss the LIKE feature. That was a real indication of people. My gawd, even CBC has the LIKE feature. :200:
Yeah, find a way to bring it back.

I never cared for it.

However, the new design doesn't look good on mobile, doesn't automatically scale up or down.

Yeah the page is zoomed like a microscope when you navigate anywhere on mobile.

I'm finally seeing what you guys are seeing with the mobile issue. It wasn't like that before, for me, but I'll figure it out and hopefully have it fixed soon -- most likely sometime in the morning, as I'm still running on about 3 hours of sleep after last night's upgrade.

The “Like” option was wholly inadequate. There should also be options to “Fully Endorse” and to “Dismiss as Utter Drivel.” :up:

You're putting too much thought into the LIKE button.

I miss the likes, more giving than receiving. If someone makes me laugh out loud on a forum with a like feature, they will automatically receive a like.

Not the same without the like feature. Feels like I have no friends. Actually, I have no friends
I have learned that to be with those I like is enough.
