Ah, Ads in all the posts. I have them all turned off, could this be why it's perceptivlety slower as I suspect they download anyway?
And another wee moan:
I used to be able to spot instantly whether I had replied to a post or not because the nice compact symbol had a big blue obvious dot in it.
Now It has a tiny white reply arrow that merges in nicely with the rest of the symbol, which quite frankly at a glance looks much the same as the rest of the "thread status" symbols.
Probably just my browsing style, but it's chuffin' annoying.
The site does look slicker, but so far none of the upgrades have improved my browsing pleasure - I have to scroll more and PMs now involve an extra drop -down to get them... and that's before I try it over a dial-up onnection.... Even this "reply" box is surrounded by a nice shade of blue, which is quite obviously not..well... something else!
Right now sat at this desk I prefer the old one......
