Same issue, but even worse! My account was banned because of this! I had to create a whole new account to even post this. Who can I contact to get my account restored? I'm a sad panda

Can you PM me your previous username please?

That's easy. Just add font-weight: normal !important to the subject_old class.

well yes, but I like the titles to stand out a little - so I'll play with colors I think. If those look bad, I'll go the normal/bold way.

Everything bold isn't good, old way is perfect imo. But do as you think, I can mod it the way I want it (safari user css).

Look&Feel so far is awesome, I like the style, the looks, the navigation - I really like the new forum up to this point - Job well done Smile

Only con for me:
When I am in the search interface and start my search I will get a message "Thank you for your search request (...)" and get taken to the results after a short while. Would it be possible to simply deactivate that screen? I want to be taken to the results immediatly Smile

This is all great to hear! Some speed/response issues being worked on, but al-in-all project leader Da-anda did an amazing job, with help from TheUni and others. Kudos guys.

Although new forum is better in many ways, there are some things that I preferred with the old one:

-font was bigger
-it was easier to read. Not sure if it is font weight, size or contrast in combination with background
-I have replied to a post with quote. Afterwards it was impossible to post non-quoted reply to thread (maybe because I missed something)
-not sure I like nested quotes - see post 39 (union1mc)

EDIT: Just seen it and haven't tried it yet, but pull support is very useful addition! Many thanks for upgrades.

My skins:

Amber
Quartz

I have to say that after several years spent here, pretty much trying to help others... seeing a negative reputation for two 2006 posts (which at the time were questionable in my opinion) and one 2009 post that doesn't even link to the right message, it's pretty disheartening. Too bad, it's ironic I noticed at my 2000th post.

For troubleshooting and bug reporting please make sure you read this first.

Also really impressed by the new forum! It looks much cleaner, Congrats!

I have one question tho:

Is it possible to have the Time and Date of a post somewhere at the top of a post rather than the bottom?

Some long posts (eg. Skin Screenshoots ) mean you have to scroll past all the lovely eye candy before you know if a post is recent or not!!

Small problem I know, but any improvement is worth it!!

Anyway, thanks Da-anda!
