The password change actually works now. ;)

Also, like the way forums work, notifications and the ability to set Likes. The phone interface is great. All around much, much better for membership enrollments and forum capabilities.

So, I kind of made a come back to the site when I was told it had migrated to new software. I browse with mobile device, and the mobile interface works nice and smooth. I tested out the image embedding, and that too is quick to use and works well. I can just simply pick an image from my phone memory and it uploads it to the post.

But I do miss the dark mode 😂

I noticed when reading through a thread that posts that draw moderator ire now have moderation comments right in that post. I don't think the old boards did that, and I think it's great - it sends a signal to others not to engage with that post or that line of posting. With separate moderator posts, it's not uncommon that people immediately react to the offensive post despite the mods already having dealt with it.

Yeah. In the past, to get the same effect, we had to edit our comments directly into the actionable post. And we'd really prefer to not edit posts on folks, unless we have to.

I’m liking the direct loading of images from my computer and mobile devices without having to utilize an image hosting site*, and the easier insertion of images and videos from the Web.

* both Photobucket and now Imgur have cheesed me off...

The old software did this. There was a gallery and you could upload images to it and link them to posts. No external hosting site required.

The quoting, both of whole posts and sections of posts are very nice. It's so much easier to multi-quote specific parts of a prior post without having to go in and edit and break it out so you can answer various parts directly. I also like the way ignore works now.
