I can't deal with it on my phone just yet. I'm trying to adjust from my desktop for now. But I've zoomed out to 80% because the reduced size more resembles previous CC format on my pc. Mind you, the font is much smaller. But the overall look seems more like the CC I was used to.

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.
A group convo would resemble a multi person telephone conference call.. lol

Oh hey Lynx, in the drop-down from your profile pic at the top of the page, there is a place for you to bookmark things :)

what about groups?

me and some other brothers and sisters were going over every verse and doing a full bible study

i cant seem to find it anywhere...

that was very important to me
Thing of the past my friend. However, you can start a conversation that you assign a name to and send out invitations to join. It could act as a group sort of.

All the old features might just be in the process of being added back in... just like when chat was upgraded there were only bare bone features for awhile but now it has most of its functionality again... (y)

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.
On your post sidebar on left-hand side click on the down arrow and that will expand the information and you will see your post count. However, the age is no longer listed which is important in considering the type of response. The sidebar seems to be a bit glitchy and you may have to refresh the page if you want to see your post count immediately otherwise clicking on the arrow may not work. Another trick to overcome this is to click on several other members sidebar arrow until the information expands, then click on your own post sidebar and your post count should go up along with other current information such as new trophy points awarded and likes received. Another thing, since each member has the same color it is impossible for a new member to easily determine whether the member is a male or female. This too is important information in determining a response. Once you click on down arrow it will change to an up arrow. Click to contract.

Robo himself said that this site doesn't have the functionality for chat groups.

I think it's pretty cool that we're all in this learning curve together! We're making history in a group setting. :giggle:

The display is fine on my 15.6" monitor. The default font is larger, the message boxes are larger, it has a very clean look :)

@tourist

Testing, I believe you just type @(name here) then click their name when it pops up.
What is the point of tagging people? Me no comprende :devilish:

On another note, something else I like is the ability to select multiple smilies at the same time :D

What exactly is tagging people, and how to you do it or undo it. I think the old site had this too but I never learned anything about it.
