Sorry I'm sure a huge amount of work went into launching this, but it really looks a like a retrograde step at this end...my typing here is tiny, the names above our avatars is basic small type text and the whole page looks really bare and sterile...not sure exactly what's missing but it has no character or energy !!
I appreciate the avatars are more readily available and that some people find it a progressive step for their iphones and ipads, but for me at home, it's a bit of a disappointment and looks like the old forum setup again...sorry !!!
PC/iTunes - 1TB HD - Aureon dual USB/Optical output - CA 650R - Denon DVD1920 - Wii - SkyHD+/Iomega Director plus multimedia - MS10i fronts - Mission dipolar rears - Lecron hi level fronts & centre sats - Thatcable & Monster HDMI - TCI Coral optical - QED speaker cable - Tacima CS929 mains conditioner
To repeat again, all the work has been at the back end - we fully appreciate there's a LOT of design work that needs addressing, but we made the decision to do that post-launch (to keep the site up and running without a break) for many, many reasons.
Please bear with us in this beta phase. I'm in a meeting right now (ah the joy of being able to post via an iPhone now!) about getting fixes processed ASAP.

I've had a quick look at the page source for the "Active posts" and another forum view, and it seems to be that the active posts is using a different style altogether, with the headers wrapped with html "strong" tags, which are not present on the other forum views.
Looks like this to me:
whereas normal threads look like this:
Thanks prof - glad it's not just me going mad.
I am having a terrible headache just after 10 minutes so I think I will be leaving.
Do try again next week - we sincerely are on the case re fixes None of us wants it to look like this!
RE the picture suddenly appearing on your profile, would it be that the new system now recognises pictures that you have previously tried to upload via the old system but that never appeared? This is what seems to have happened on my profile as the last time i tried to upload a profile picture it was the same one that has now mysteriously appeared today...not complaining atall i might add, it was just a thought.
Well, I don't remember ever trying to upload an Avatar (could be my memory though...) but suddenly I have a profile picture ass well.
I don't mind though. It is an old picture

It's a shame about the edit function. My spelling, grammar, and punctuation are abysmal. Many of my posts are only - tolerably - readable (I hope) after editing mistakes I spot after the event.
Never mind. I will have to get into the habit of typing up posts on notepad first and proof-reading them before posting.
Perhaps you could consider it an opportunity to improve your writing ability?
still having problems with this new setup...couldn't type here until disabled rich text (whatever that is !!) and after I finally managed to insert an album cover (after 3 attempts) under the 'what I'm listening to' thread, I couldn't post a comment with it ?
I know you're still working on the setup so just want to point things out as they come up and hope that they are on your 'to do' list !!
Are you sure it's not just part of your bad weekend/fortnight/month?
What kind of device are you posting from, and where is the picture you're trying to post hosted?
Definitely one of your more enigmatic posts, Chebby! Care to elaborate, or is this merely a glitch thrown up by amendments to the forum?
