Ok, I like the collapsing boards... that's pretty cool. If there's a new post, does it automatically expand? That would be nice.

No way to see if there are any unread messages without entering a forum... I liked seeing the number of unread posts in the main index.

In "the blues" color scheme, the unread thread is black... really, I'm mildly depressed , but not all out black! A deep grey perhaps?

I would like to see the replyee in flat mode as before. And what became of stellar ratings?

Can I second that?

I just noticed the "quote" and the "mark all read". Very cool! If they're not new, well I like them anyway. The ability to search by display name is also handy, although I see you need to get the name right. The inclusion of the post number would be handy, if I kept a list of posts that were important, if you could just say "oh, look up post 24601 and they'd just jump right to it that would be fantastic.

I guess the boards don't expand automatically with new messages. Oh, and there are (+) signs for both "new posts" and "no new posts" in the legend.

The LIGHT BULB on the left hand side of the screen indicates if the forum contains unread posts. Does is really matter if there's 1 new one or 100?

Not sure what you mean by replyee in flat mode . Please elaborate.

Ratings are available as a switch. I have it turned off for the moment.

Before, every post in flat mode had the name of the poster to whom he was replying (except the original post, of course.)

For example, you just responded to OhNo4, but it doesn't actually say that in your response (it used to). This reply also won't specify that I'm responding to your post. Historically that's often been a point of contention ("I wasn't replying to you! ") when discussions get heated.

A major reason for this, to say the least!
