I've been out all day, and missed the launch, so a belated welcome from me. I hope you like the new look.

We are bound to need a couple of tweaks, and it would be good to hear what you think, but perhaps you could let me know via email, rather than starting a thread? Otherwise we'll end up with a batch of threads, and it may get confusing.

It's great to have a new site; I hope you'll enjoy using it, and perhaps join me in thanking the hard-working development team who put it all together - no mean feat with a site of this size and complexity.

Mobile phone number required to update profile

That's a glitch. It should be optional, not mandatory, and will be changed next week.

Apologies if this has been mentioned already, but on the list of threads it tells you how many answers / views, I think "answers" is a poor choice of word. A particular thread could have 15 replies, but still not be answered. Not a problem for regular users, but could be misleading to new visitors looking for solutions to their problems.

I also hope the bold feature doesn't get abused!

I've just had the problem where I've tried to submit a second reply, but after clicking submit it just disappeared without trace!

I was commenting that the preview box doesn't convert the links so you can't actually see what they look like until you click submit. Would be nice if this could be fixed :)

finerty, Matt Egan has said in another thread that they are having some difficulty with My Postings, but it will be back ASAP.

What do you mean? Like this link to the BBC, it seems to convert them just fine.

I have noticed one oddity, when you used to click on a link it used to open up in a separate window or tab depending on your browser, this isn't a negative comment as there are quite a few other forums that either have one or the other, this one seems to have adopted the open in the same tab as you are using mode, no big deal, I'll just middle click to open the link in a new tab.
