Well now, I like that option to save the PMs as text. Wickedly easy and fast. For the first time in ages I have a totally empty mailbox!

Ah, you mean the little wrenches and the like? Not shabby, but I, for one, am holding out for the icons with tiny Eagles, stunguns and commlocks!

So did I. How many different ones are there? (Oh, cricket, don't forget that there's a stungun in the forum rank icon for Weapons Engineer.)

Oh, by the way, I love all the new emoticons!

There is an advantage here with this 'new' system. If ever you lose your connection or you accidentally close the browser, you won't lose track of all the unread posts. That used to drive me potty and, in my opinion, is a good trade-off.

The smilies and small/large text options don't seem as accessible, but that may be just me. I've probably missed the easy way to them!

OK, I admit it, I'm starting to warm to the new look as I get used to it.

I am getting used to it too. No, no, I already liked it when it was new. Now that the major bugs are eliminated, the new forum is really much better than the old one. So all your work pays off. Thank you!
In point of view of the design I first thought that blue would look better than brown, but brown is probably much more an alphan colour.

cheers

It’s funny…each time I hit the refresh button of my web browser, the original blue appears during a fraction of a second…

Me too. I'm used to the brown and coal black as well.

I really like the 'New Posts' button. That really saves on time and backtracking and clicking. Thanks for pointing it out, Eagle.
