All the 'Reply' options are very confusing . . . and where are the bold/italic/under-line functions, please Robert?

Note that you did change the slogan . . . BETTER OFFICIALS is all encompassing and quite timely as far as the RFU is concerned but wouldn't BETTER UNDERSTANDING or simply COMMITTED TO A BETTER GAME be more pertinent to this dedicated site?

Reply is the first, just a bog standard reply.

Reply with quote is quoting one persons post.

The speech marks and + is multi quote.

No difference to before.

As for the slogan, it it what it is.

I like it so far although it's going to take a couple of days to get fully used to it.

I am a bit confused by the reply options. Pressing the big button that says "+ Reply to Thread" doesn't seem to do anything. Pressing reply at the bottom right of the last post just moves your cursor to the quick reply box?

Smilys on the right now work, but there are more on the right than in the drop down.
The drop down ones don't have any tooltip names.
They all seem a little small.

I love how the attachments work, where you can easily see and use previous ones.
I love the logo.

I can't get my head round what gallery does?

Looking forward to all the branding being finished.

If you select the multi quotes, then hit +reply to thread at the bottom it adds all the quotes you have selected.

If you hit the reply button, it just puts you in the reply box, yes.

I agree the smilies look small, but they are normal size in the posts. Didn't notice there were less in the top menu, will look into that too.

:D;):eek:
What do these smileys mean?
Smile, Smile & wink, smug smile I'd say (I think the last one may become your best friend?):eek:

I have just done my first run through and it looks fine to me. Obviously It will take a short while to become fully familiar, but I have no problems to report.

Several things I don't care for.

There is no "time since last log in" anywhere that I can find. This makes it impossible to know how far you need to look back when something logs me back in while I'm reading a post. With the old forum I knew to locate this number when logging in so I could find my "bookmark" in threads.

The icons beside posts to show what is new or not is so pale that it's difficult for me to tell which is which.

From the "New Posts" page the link just opens the top of the thread. Shouldn't that send me to the "first unread"?
