    At the very top of the page you'll see what I'm calling the Userbar. You should see your username with a small version of your avatar, along with links next to it for your "Conversations" (PMs) and "Alerts". Mouse over your name and a drop-down will appear with links to everything to control your user profile.

    That's odd. You shouldn't have been able to do that on the old site. It was an unreleased feature.

    81918? That's the number that appears in the link to my name anyways. Preferably I'd just like to alter the spelling of my name

    Thanks for the quick reply! I looked in that drop-down box and can not find a place showing my folders. Again I am looking for the folders where I stored/sorted my subscriptions to threads and my PMs. The folders used to be on the left hand side of the user CP. Thanks!

    Yes I have been to this link/page. It only shows the subscribed threads in a long list. No folders.

    The blue dot doesn't reset after you read the thread like it used to. I'm rereading threads if I don't read in sequential order and mark the forum read when I'm done.

    I like the new format. I always thought the personal info, left side of forum posts was too big. Now it is just right.

    When viewing on my Ipad, double tapping any text fills the screen with that text (as it did before the site refresh) and that is how I focus on a post (or any text really). Sometimes I even play with the ctl + and ctl - zoom on my pc to attempt to recreate that functionality, but it is more work to get it just right on the pc. I use zoom features to control the "white space" I see others talking about (I think?).

    The site speed / page load time is great.

    Are you pressing the "Back" button on your browser to go back to the What's New page, or forum page? If so, that sounds like it's just your browser caching the previous page.

    Can you fix it so the reason for editing a post isn't mandatory?

    Also noticed that when I click on a post in the "Alert" box it takes me to the post as it should but the alert doesn't clear. Can that be changed?

    When I visit a thread, it scrolls immediately to the bottom to show my posting box. I have to scroll back up to start at the beginning of the thread. Is there a way to change this? It's really annoying. :(

    I'd also like to see the orange box at the left made a little wider so it could be shorter. It makes every post really long.

    Other than that, I like the new software. Just a few tweaks here and there, which is to be expected.

    I have to say, I am quite happy with this upgrade. So many things to like.
    From the home screen userbar, check out the 'customize this page' option. I moved default content from the left column to the bottom, and then resized my window. Now I have a less cluttered page I prefer.

    I'm not planning on bringing any folder functionality for the Watched Threads, but I can tell you that we will have a Bookmarking feature with the ability to organize them.

    Bookmarks will be a Premium feature. More info on the Premium memberships soon.

    That is something I was going to point out, especially as I add more widgets that can be used on the front page. Soon you'll be able to organize your front page by putting the news where you want, the latest threads from whole board, from the Prius forums, from the Prius v forums, etc. But, just so you know, this is a browser-based cookie saved feature; meaning that the same layout will not come up when you log in from another computer or mobile device.

    Understood there may be some deficiencies in the new software. Any chance to recover the folders (basically each folder contain a bunch of links to threads or PMs) or are they gone already?

    COOL.

    If the widgets are resizable, even better. Will the page update automatically ?

    No and no. But both are awesome ideas.
