    Now that we have a refreshed look...what about the emojis/smileys? Can we add a bunch more? I see some of the new ones that probably came with the new site. Just curious. We have had the ones we have forever.

    Also, I might just be missing it, but is there a way to go to the last post in a thread from the top page of a forum?

    I very much dislike the way to mark forums read.

    In vB, you could double-click on the icon on the main forum page and mark that forum read.

    I would do this to forums I don't want to read, then hit "new posts" to get the posts I want to see.

    Having to go into each forum, click a link, answer a question, click it, etc is way more cumbersome.

    It would be great to have a forum jump at the bottom of the page like the old format had... right now I am hitting the up arrow to get back to the top of the page and then navigating back to the forum page.

    Edit: Thanks for setting this up.

    I have a consistent issue where when i click on inbox, it freezes my whole browser until I stop the loading and refresh the page.

    Is there a way to add a graph icon to a thread that has a poll attached (in the main forum listing of all the threads)? This would indicate that there is a poll included in the thread. I think the old one also auto-populated "Poll: " at the beginning of the thread title as well. I don't read every thread in some forums, but if I see there is a poll I usually go in & vote.

    The term "Poll: " is now prefixed on the thread titles while viewing the list of threads in a forum.

    I don't care for all the wasted space inside the message area nor in the message separators - kill the black bar and put the heading data in the gray bar in black type. I would like a slightly larger font for the text - the italicized quote is the most challenging thing for me to read. I can make it all out but I can read much faster when its trivial to read. A way for me to set the type size I prefer would be ideal... or maybe it already exists and I'm ignorant of how to utilize it.

    I like the shortening for long quotes.

    Do we even need the "Multi" button? I could never get it to work, but I did just stumble into seeing that if you just press "Quote" on multiple posts, it quotes all of them in the reply box at the bottom of the page.

    if I push quote, it quotes that post and has my typing. If I choose multi, I can continue reading the thread and all of the different posts I want to quote and reply to stay in my clipboard so when I do go to reply, I can quote everyone instead of one at a time.
