    When you hit reply, in the quote text above it should say it. also you can mouse over the name and see the number in the bottom left corner of the browser, as someone else has pointed out

    Ahh, I saw it and have forgotten it already. And no, this font and color isn't doing it for me either. #160720, this color might work.

    Didn't see this in the thread and search didn't seem to bring it up.

    Are the old buddy lists saved somewhere and will they be converted to people you are following at some point? Or are they lost to the sands of the intertubes forever?

    Will take some getting used to, but I think I like it.
    Looking forward to the full version with all the bells and whistles.

    **edit** I guess we have to reinstal our avatar manually!?

    Problem for me seems that it opens a "popup" type login section and it's hard to find on the phone. Everything gets grayed out and you have to search for the fields. Once I found them, no problems on the database side, but just strange placement.

    hmm...i saw the login section, but when i login it just brings me back to the new forum screen as if i just hit refresh.

    I mean the layout that they're using now. You seem upset...

    I think this is just the default layout. Lots of people will be upset because it's different. I hope there is some hybrid between this and what we had. Mostly, I would like to see the BA main site into in the side bar, and more integration. It will come, I just have to be patient..

    I too am very happy with the speed and response of the new servers, but not at all a fan of the new forum format or log in. BTW, what's with the sign in on the front page (not working) and then a forum log in? Shouldn't there be a memo on the main page that says "Go to forum section and log in." Took me several days to realize I could log in, but couldn't sign in. So confused, scratches head.

    So, when all the data from the old forum is transferred over, does that mean I won't have only 2 posts, or are we starting over from scratch?

    LOL. None of this technology existed 10 years ago, and our old forum was built 10 years ago.

    She really likes it. The other day at the beer tasting I hosted, she was telling the guys how much she didn't like RateBeer and hoped that the forums here would be back up this week, so she is happy.

    Also, my avatar is of Doug, my brothers cat, I'll upload my cat Luna in a bit as my avatar for a bit.

    The main page is very clear and understandable now. You have to tip your cap to the Bros. They have always listened to us and will make proper adjustments as needed. I have no doubt these new changes, once all are in place, will be user friendly and enjoyed by the members. Cheers!
