Yes. I have understood that you can delete and edit posts for a longer periode. I think Littlemermaid said she had edited a post after 3 hours.

I agree, this is a huge improvement.
I'll be surprised if it stays. The site is currently under default settings. Once Robo has time to adjust them we'll probably see some changes.

That "problem" is getting resolved. Apparently there was no post edit maximum time set at all. Someone mentioned that the edit option was showing on posts they had made three years ago.

Ooooohhhhhhhhhhhh :pHow did the site ever know the last post you had read? o_O
It was a function on the mobile platform (what you see on your phone) but it didn't used to work for laptop/desktop computer display. On my phone the forum kept track of the last post you read, or rather the last post on the page you looked at last time. When you looked at that thread next time you would be automatically deposited at the next post right after the one you read last time. It was very convenient.

Now it will probably be a function on mobile AND desktop displays, and you will all know the convenience of last-read tracking.

One thing I can't get used to is the font that makes small i look like capital I. Same with j. I keep having to check and make sure I didn't accidentally capitalize letters that should be lowercase.

For some reason my post count does not go up when I write a post. The number is still the same from when I signed on yesterday.

I don't see a post count at all any more. At least not on the post sidebar. I have to look at the person's profile to see all the stuff I used to see at a glance.

Yesterday I edited a post I had made last Wednesday (5 days previous) :sneaky: (I enlarged the font)

If you click the little arrow under the member's avatar and name, it shows post count :)

I think this site is very modern and up to date and everything. But I think it is quite funny it predicts what is happening TOMORROW! Screenshot_20180529-185957_Chrome.jpg

What if you start a group conversation (where the PMs are)? I tried to add and start a group conversation and that was easy. If there is space for one more I would very much like to join.

Are blogs gone, too? I loved writing blogs!

Apparently they're in the very last forum, under the tech support one. You'll have to filter your name through to find yours, though. Luckily I copy pasted all the links to mine before the change over.
