You can bookmark them. Though I dunno how helpful that'll be.. :unsure:
Learning to learn this site is blind luck. You click on stuff and certain things happen, try the same thing and nothing happens. There appear to be many glitches, like clicking on the arrows under your screen name. Sometimes you can see the information that is hidden and other times you click on the scroll arrow and nothing happens. Thing is a nuisance, better to just list everything with each post as before.

Now, you don't know a member's age even if their profile allowed for this and if you are new to the site or new members join you don't know whether the member is a man or a woman. This is important to know as it can determine the type of reply to a post.

I don't even know what a bookmark is although I believe that was also a feature of the old format.

I don't see any instructions at all in how to navigate the site or even a section listing the rules of conduct.

I like this thread though and also the thread about embracing the changes because the peeps share info on what they have discovered about what works and what doesn't. Two best thread on the new format so far.

Obviously there's going to be a learning curve involved here :)
For all parties involved. If you think it's different on your end think how much more different it is on RoboOp's end. CC had been on the vBulleting format for longer than I've been around.

And God bless him for that! Talk about perseverance :)

I like how the format adjusts to the width of whatever device you are using.

One thing I am wondering though, is why the page links are on the opposite side of the page to the scroll bar. It is somewhat inconvenient and counter intuitive to have it that way. I also do not see the ability to jump back up to the top of the page like the old platform had. Is that gone, too?

It's the teeny tiny up arrow at the verrrrry bottom of the page.

Is there themes for the forum to change colours? Especially for mobile, I can't seem to find if there is.

Another forum I'm part of just recently migrated to new forum software that has themes.

I have not been on CC for the last week or so and just got a notification. Wow this new set up is very different. This is going to take awhile to get used to but it reads like a major upgrade.
