    I added one to ease the transition, but you can do it without it. It's just not as discoverable.

    The font is different in the different skin formats. It is a good size for these old eyes anyway. The avatars look fuzzy though. I've tried different skins but all look to be the same grainy appearance. Not a huge deal by any means.

    Yes and damn. We have to go a different route on the search engine than we thought. Amazon will offer a great one in a month and we're debating on whether we can wait that long. We're experimenting with installing one now but if it takes too long we may have to wait the month.

    You can't yet. When I get time I'll work on that. Could be awhile, sorry.

    My subscribed threads (watched threads) are all still there.. but all my "watched forums" are all gone.

    I previously used to enter the site through the usercp. All my subscribed threads and forums were all in the same place. Kinda dislike how its in two different areas now.. and it seems im seeing alerts that there are posting in my "watched threads", but its not necessarily showing that postings were made from the "watched threads" page.

    I just want to know how to change the amount of posts seen per page from whatever the default is, to 100 or whatever the max is.
    Other than that, everything looks pretty schnazzy. Nice work!

    I think we're sticking with 20. Something to get used to.

    Tapatalk has been up for a few hours. Make sure you delete ADVrider and re-add it.

    People need to re-upload avatars. You'll notice mine is no longer grainy. It now supports higher resolution photos.

    I also don't like the new font. If I had to explain it, I would say that it's just too condensed. I'm on a 1080 IPS monitor right now, and something about it just makes it hard to read. It's not easy on the eyes IMO.

    More nitpicks:

    - what happened to the :lurk icon?!
    - can we pretty-please get the post dates at the TOP of the posts instead of the bottom? Having to scroll down to see that, especially on long RR posts, is somewhat annoying.

    As for the font, yeah it's hard to describe but this font is difficult to read, at least more so than before. I agree with Insanepain, it's spaced too closely together, and is kind of blocky. If you want a Sans Serif font, there are others with better readability, but I think I'd prefer something more Serif-y. Just IMO, but I'm not digging this particular font choice...

    Was there a recent change to the Alert system? I'm no longer getting the flags even though qualifying events are happening.

    Which you click on the "forum" tab at the top, is there not a "Mark Forum Read" option there? If there is, when you are in a subforum there we be a selection radio button to choose all or just that subforum to mark as read.

    any way to remove the sidebar on the main and forum nav pages?

    ie- is the layout customizable at all by the user or only by the admins?
