When you hover over a person's name or avatar, their account information comes up. You can click the number of posts for that person, and it will take you to their post stream :)

Also, I absolutely ADORE the fact that I and literally everyone on this site can become a grammar nazi via the bad spelling reaction...

Hmm...wonder if anyone will get some ideas from this comment. Hee hee.

i meant on the admin end... all avatats would be set one way or the other for a paricular page or part of the site.

I don’t mind, bees tend to be round and so are teapots.

I like the new CC fragrance the best...



So....now Christian chat smells like flowers and giant dancing teddy bears?????
That was what you were trying to tell everyone right?

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:
Well that way the site is "well rounded" and a "circle" never ends just like God/Jesus's love so I think it fits!

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!
Cool now you can expand your horizons and become even more popular than before!

I think it looks great. Very mobile friendly. Who has two thumbs and likes the changes? This girl right here, that's who.

One of the things I noticed pretty quickly is that you no longer have to have a ten character minimum for posts.

Long gone are the days of posting "..........." just to meet the minimum ten characters.

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?
I like the reaction icons. Other than that, I much prefer the old format as it was easier to follow. Miss the friends list and the rep power system. I also miss the last 10 visitors list to your profile page and the amount of visits since you joined. A member's sex should be visible on each post, the previous color coding was effective. If I had a choice would have stayed with the old format, except perhaps for a few cosmetic changes. The reaction symbols probably could have be incorporated into the old format as well.
