OMG, what has happened when I was away!!!

What a change! Hopefully, it won't all be bad. It isn't finished yet be a long shot, and will probably be a few weeks getting smoothed out.

I hope you can all tolerate it. It is the "NEW" flexible design, which means it should look better on small devices...

I think the overall format will be better once we all get used to it. Unfortunately all the classifieds got left behind. So if you had an add, you will have to repost it:(

Nice thing is we have a Garage back, unfortunately it is empty. No importers available to bring old entries along, so that too is starting fresh. I haven't even made an entry myself, so I don' t have any idea what is missing:(

Even the reference section needs a lot of work to look right again. That will be a ways down the road, in the meantime, it is still available for use, it just doesn't look quite right.

Anyway, you can start telling me how much you hate/love it and start pointing out some of the fixes I have missed.

Definitely nicer on a cell phone!
That will make it a lot nicer to browse the site whe waiting to board a plane, or at the doc’s office or on the road...

I like it so far. The only problem I've seen is a banner at the top of the page saying my mail box is full but when I go into conversations there is no way to delete old mail. Growing pains I guess.
 
Does anyone have moderator access? I am thinking not! And I'm not sure why...

It should be in the upper left of your screen.
 
I approved a post the other day in the approval queue. I have two tools under Morerator: Approval Queue and Reports. The other tools that were available to me are not in the new system.

I suspected as much, I am going to have to do some research and find out more about the way things are set up.
 
you can go to your account page and change your preference from 'TeamBuick' to 'Default', which is a blue and gray color scheme.

i'm not seeing other options to modify color or layout, i typically prefer a black / dark background with white / light text. i find this color scheme easier on my eyes and suspect that it's probably also easier on the display ( especially those of us in the stone age who are still using CRTs ), and i don't see any way that it wouldn't also be preferable from a battery life aspect.

Mod tools display in the bottom of every single post in a thread. you have to check the Moderation box in the lower left of the post and then i've got options for Report, Edit, Delete and IP.
 
Ok, Switched views, much better. The yellow was terrible. I can click on the moderator link and see the que etc but that is all.
 
I have only seen a couple of posts so far requiring moderation. This system may produce fewer, I am not sure. I know when I looked at the moderator privileges, there seemed to be an appropriate number, so I am not sure what is going on. If anyone notices, mention it. I will try to remember to look at colors a bit more.
 
okay, i found the approval queue.

in the far upper left there is a Moderator button, there are only two options; Approval Queue and Reports.

funny, i never noticed that before.
 
Could be I accidentally fixed something!!! I also lightened the background in the main reading window. I am sure some will endorse it, but is it enough? I know different screens produce different color intensities, so while mine may be good or at least seem acceptable, that may not be the case for others.
 
The site still doesn't work on my laptop! On the phone it works fine but I get nothing but the message that the site is under construction on my laptop. Can't use reference or any other features either. Is it just me or is everyone using a desktop or laptop not seeing the site?
 
Hey your right Ben! I've seen the prompt but never clicked it. That's a roundabout way to get into the forum but its better than nothing.
