I know it will take time to get use to the format, but I'm not liking it.

Can you tell that I do not like change, lol! Where do I find my "favorites". I have high speed, but it is still taking me a long time closing one board down, going to the main message board listing, find the board category I am looking for after opening the more button, and then find actual board I am looking for.

What is the difference between the Quick reply and Reply buttons?

I don't like it either! The layout is clunky and NOT worth the new features.

If you go to "Edit My Preferences" there may be some options there that help organize things better for you.

the only thing i like is that I now get Rich text with Firefox.

I'm having a hard time figuring out what posts are new and what posts are old.

Chris, If you click on the green number of posts on the main page it should take you to the new ones. That's also one of the options you can select under "edit my preferences"

FYI - quick reply brings up a small text box right underneath the post without any options.

Some of the new features are nice, but what gets to me is not being able to see as many messages/threads in the screen at once. There's so much "wasted" space on the screen, it seems to me. Maybe there is something in the settings I'm missing? I'm sure I'll get used to everything, but for now I definitely miss the old look.
