    I just keep wondering why you had to change the forum. I DO NOT LIKE IT A BIT.

    Did the separating of the calls in the general classifieds die?

    Below is a snip with thread titles highlighted trying to show the issue.

    Not that Site Staff cares, but I'm not impressed with new layout. I don't think it's an improvement at all. The colors and backgrounds make it harder to read. Also, the lack of shown pages under thread titles is disappointing.

    I wouldn't think they don't care. However, based on feedback, your opinion is in the minority. Many were not happy in the beginning, but now approval comments far outweigh those still not happy.

    You might try adjusting your settings. The default settings ARE small. You can adjust it upwards, to 50 if you like. The default is only 10, and the old software it was 20. You might also consider adjusting the contrast on your screen.

    The old software was buggy. This is the new standard across many forums. It was not an easy decision, and not a cheap one. However, complaints of problems have dropped 90% since the change.

    I've had some double postings while editing and edits that when I submitted them didn't change.

    Plus...I'd like to request again a longer than 30 minute "edit" time limit.

    Thanks...Bear

    Same problems here.
    It seems to me that the edit function is a lot shorter than 30 minutes.
    It needs to be at least a couple hours.
