Hard to read unless someone posts in Bold  Finding the script too light for my OLD eyes

Are you guys complaining about this on your phones?  I had zoomed to 110% in my browser for the old cc and had to back it down to 100% for the new because it was too big.

No, I'm using my laptop but the text is now darker or larger than it was earlier. 🙂

Since I've replied to this thread I should have a blue star, right?

I don't.  The dot is gray, not bolded blue.  Does this mean I've replied?  Or just read?

My browser the Dot turned into a star if I just visited.  Blue=new posts Gray=no new posts.

Looks like the default moved from 20 to 25 posts per page, which will mean even more scrolling in those threads with folks quoting long posts/pics.

Quick thought, I'm liking the mobile view so far.  There is a speed difference, but I'm finding it Ok.  I'll look at the site from my laptop later tonight.

What if I've posted on the thread?  This thread, for me, shows gray.  No indication that I've posted.  I went away for a few minutes and had a hard time finding the thread again.

Strange. My Blue Dot just goes away when I just read (visit) a thread.

I do get the star when i post to a thread. Blue=new posts Gray=no new posts as you said.

That is what UAT testing is for... to get the bugs ironed out before you roll it out.

LB - who has done a lot of UAT testing 

The problem is, often testers are too close to the new project and can't easily see the faults. That's why user beta testers are good.

I'm on my 7 inch tablet right now and I can actually read better than when I was on my laptop.

OK, I see what you mean now.  

A star instead of a blue dot.  :classic_biggrin:

 

OK, now wait...…. I just went back.  I just posted, right?  It should show a star, correct?  It just shows a gray dot, no star.

 

Seriously, this is too much like work for me.  I have a cruise on Sunday.  I'll visit when I come back.  It'll be fine by then.....right?

Just tried it today and it seems slow to me. I understand that there is no app anymore. Which I know I will miss. It was great just to have to open the app on my phone and not Google the site every time.

I’m not tech savvy so I’m sure it might take me a little longer to get use to this.

True. By next week, we'll be used to the differences and begin to appreciate some of the new features.

One thing that I keep forgetting is that the "Go To First Unread Post" button is now outside the thread (the blue dot/star). I keep clicking into the thread first, then looking for the button. So the new way is much better - saves a click.  Kudo's CC 👍    (side note: lot's of new emjois)

Give me a few days. It takes awhile for this old dog to learn new tricks.

Speed seems fine. Font, brightness too.

Can't access roll calls.

Not a huge fan of the new look , speed is no problem 

Like any change, it takes time to adjust. I do think they are still working out the kinks though.

They had mentioned the CC app was going away but I see Tapatalk is not working either. I really hope they have more sense than to restrict avenues to their own website. unless that is a method to reduce postings .  :classic_unsure:

BTW can someone tell me how to access favorites now?

Was finally able to login. Looks OK, just different.  Will take a while to get used to it.

The font is now darker than earlier and looks much better.  Anyone else agrees?  

 

Agreed.

Looks like they added an expand signature feature?  Or maybe I changed an option?

Not sure what the full impact will be (countdown clocks), but signatures are restricted to 6 lines.

Didn't there used to be a top of page button?  Not sure it's really needed since there is better navigation at the top and bottom of the page.

Darker text is much better!

You're right, that's an instant improvement 🙂

I don't like it. Print too small for me because I have Macular Degeneration.  Probably won't be on here much.
