Yeah I liked seeing how many people viewed a thread, how many posts there are on that thread and who posted last. I'm on my phone and I can't see it. Other than that I like it

On a desktop, everything works fine for me, same as before, except I have to say, I love the new quick reply box on each thread. I do want the thank button back too of course, so I'm happy that will return.

I think the new structure is just fine... just takes a little geting-used-to IMO.
I think BrianM and the mods generally do a good job, especially the last couple of days!
I thank them for that.

Thank you, Brian, for keeping this place free to enjoy. If I may make a couple suggestions, though they're not too terribly important, and if nobody objects. Can you make the quote boxes white again? I'm not sure what color the new quote boxes are, but they're not very friendly for highlighting/emphasizing text in colors, especially red. If nobody objects, make links open up in a new page again instead of the same page as they do now. Thanks. :)

I don't recall the quote box being white? I thought it was a different color... hmmm..

Are you talking about external links (links that link outside of LDSFF) opening up in a new page/tab? (test: http://www.latterdayconservative.com" onclick="window.open(this.href);return false; )

In retrospect, I'm not certain anymore what color the quote boxes were, LOL. As for the external links, yup! That link opened in a new tab! :)

If you're making a suggestion it would help to indicate whether or not you view the forum on a desktop/laptop computer, tablet or phone.. A lot of the main differences with the new setup are applicable to phones.. and might not ever change back to how it was. The change overall makes it much easier to browse on a phone.

Good grief! Thanks for saying this. I thought I was going nuts when it said all of those were new/unread posts, yet not only had I read them, I was reading posts I had made! @-)

The missionary department appears to be discontinuing missionary use of Facebook, in many parts of the US, for at least 2-3 months.

Hmmmm, I wonder why Facebook proselytizing turned out to be problematic?

I agree, Pink Death. In fact, when I told friends of mine that missionaries, along with the rest of us members, were being encouraged to use social media for missionary work, they thought I was fibbing!!

Brian - I don't recall if you referred me to CleanTalk or someone else, but with prosperazon forum, CleanTalk is amazing at spam elimination (make CoachMarks life much easier), and continues to catch over 250 spam accounts on average per day, so far, making my life much easier with the forum spammer robots out there.
