I just got home from vacation yesterday, logged into CC and Wham! Yikes! Different. I am sure the "different" has gotten a good amount of flack, as usual. Who really likes change, anyway? But it looks like there was a lot of work put into this new update, and I think I'll really like it. What are some of the features you're finding cool?

I already know I'm going to like the private messaging system much, much better. No more cluttering up the inbox and wading through responses to try to find where so-and-so said such-and-such. It's right there at your fingertips, laid out thread-style. Cool!

I haven't had much of a chance to look around yet, but I'm sure I'll be back to gloat as I find other cool features. What are YOUR favorite things about the new system?

1. It’s super mobile friendly.
2. Mobile users can upload pictures straight from their phone.
3. There is a gifs option that you can use instead of having to search and paste gifs from the net.
4. Emojis!
5. Easy to navigate around.
6. Faster loading.
7. The “reaction” options are super awesome. 8. “Tagging” people is very handy.

That’s what I can think from the top of my head :)

I really like that it sends a notification when you've been quoted by someone. Nice!

Has anyone figured out the difference between "Watch" and "Bookmark", and why does it say "Sticky" and "Public" when you bookmark something?

What are those options for?

(As soon as I figure everything out, I'm sure I'll be liking it.) :)

I am also really enjoying the "Life Bits" feature, too.

I love the overall look, but there are some things missing that I am going to miss.... and there are a few very minor criticisms I have about the new look, like the circular avatars... I prefer rectangular ones like we used to have, but I guess these round ones encourage people to post a pic of themselves instead of say... a box of donuts... :cautious:

I like being notified when someone quotes me. Idk how many posts i “ignored” in the past simply because some threads move so quickly.

Would you believe...

During all the time I was on CC, I never once thought about sending anonymous love notes to a guy I had a crush on through the rep system... and now it's too late. :(

Bah.

Now if I get a crush... I may actually have to tell him. :eek:

I like the notifications if someone quotes me or mentions my name. Also, the emoji's and the posts reactions. Overall I like the change, just need to get use to everything.

While I can't quite forgive it for taking nearly 18 months worth of likes and reps away from me in the blink of an eye, I think that no longer needing a image hosting site is quite nice...

Also, I now have the ability to spread my memes on the Life Bits sections!

I really like the new look. It's more modern and the features really give off more of a true social media feel, which I think will be a benefit in attracting new members.

But most of all, I like the additional smilies. :sneaky:

Oh my gosh, you can save a draft!! :eek::cool:
Not only does it save a draft, but if you start a post and then navigate away from the page, your partial post will show up again if and when you return to that thread. The new layout also makes it easier to align your content (available right away) and change the font color and face. If you do not like the color options, you can enter the HEX code in a small text box under the color swaths. Being able to upload directly from your own device is nice, but I noticed that images entered that way do not carry over from post to post. Before, that was only a problem if the page number changed, but even that wasn't always that way ;) Overall the look is very clean, and it seems quite user friendly. I have not figured out if we are able to access another person's post stream; perhaps you have to go to the other's profile page? I dunno. Creeping people's profiles was never my thing :) It seems a little inconvenient to have the page links on the opposite side from the scroll bar, but hey, first world problems, huh? LOL. I am still learning about some of the features. It is fun! A number of people sort of freaked out when it was introduced on Monday. I was not one of them :devilish:

There is still a five minute edit limit, but no note gets attached for edits made at any time. For the first day, you could edit any post made at any time while you were here... meaning, I could have edited that spelling mistake made almost three years ago :giggle:
