    Can I still make my pages "longer"? I used to have 100 posts per page. Can I change my settings to do that with the new set up?

    In the Old system, one could see who was the OP next to their Avatar. Now that is gone. Can you possibly show the OP again? Makes it easier to drop in the middle of a post and see who is the OP...
    Thanks

    I've just noticed that the top left corner of some avatars is green. At frst I thought that it denoted the OP, but now I see that it doesn't. Anyone explain what the green corner means?

    I think it refers to who is online now.

    As a monthly group ride organizer, I would love to have a calendar item to use to plan ahead so that everyone could see planned dates, locations, tracks, etc. It would be nice if this calendar item was specific to each region.

    Any chance of getting the Edit time and date on the bottom of posts when they've been edited? If even just for one thread?

    The Tent Space sign up thread uses the edit date in part to determine if the post is current. Now that edits aren't visible it makes that a little less convenient.

    Thanks,

    Jamie

    You can see that with the default browsing skin. I am not sure what else is missing with the other skins, but in order to see everything, I have to use the default skin.

    I will see if we can add it in to the Black Responsive theme. I know it used to be there...

    Ah! News to me. Thanks.

    Wait. Which one is the default? I'm using the Orange, or Black, or whatever it's called. I thought that was the default.
    That would be awesome.

    No idea if it's been suggested already but...

    If there could be a second link to "Watched Threads" or that whole toolbar at the bottom of each page, sort of a footer, that'd be really handy for reading through of one's subscribed threads by removing the need to scroll back up top to get back the list of watched threads.

    There is an icon at the bottom of the page that will take you to the top.

    Yes, there is. However, one click would be better than two. Also, that icon is difficult to use from a touch-screen device.

    I'm using the Revo style, Mac OS X 10.10.5 on Chrome Version 46.0.2490.80

    In the 'Alert' dropdown, when I follow a link, the first line of the post at the top of the window is hidden by the navTabs div.

    Thanks for all your hard work!! :thumb

    PS - I started another thread here a few days ago about the favorites icon in my Android tablet still using the default Xenforo icon, in case you didn't see that
