Hi, all :) Just wanted to let you know that some board changes are going to be rolling out tomorrow night. I don't know what exactly the changes are but I do know they are in response to some surveys that the cl's took.

Of course you can join in! :) And I agree about the date of the original post.

I liked the dot too - and wasn't there a flag or something once you responded to a post - sometimes I forget which messages I've already replied to.

Yup, date of original post is helpful too.

I took the survey, but I have one more thing that I'm wondering about - at the top of the page, it used to say "Welcome tmpavlac!" and now even though I'm signed in, it only says "Sign in or Join" at the top of my page. I'm not sure. I never know if I'm logged in, except if I look at whether there are any messages that have been read or not. Does that make sense? I don't know if that's just my account or everyone's account. If it helps, I am using Firefox.

Yep there was. A perfect world would be a combo of the old and new boards. I LOVEEEEE the quick reply feature on the new board (using it right now!) but I do miss the dots and the flag.

Girls, just noticed something. You CAN see what messages you have already replied to. Just not from the main page. If you click on "see all" next to each of the categories, it shows you a list of all the posts in that category. There are little gray or red bubbles to the left of the posts and if you have replied to that post, there is a little black arrow next to it.

What I can't quite figure out why some of the bubbles are gray and some are red?

Melissa, can you advise?

It would be easier if they put that information on the main page too. I rarely go to that category page, mostly for time constraints. It would be easier to see on the main page at a quick glance what has been read and replied to. :)

Yep me too - that's why it took me so long to figure out but if you're not sure you replied to a post and want to check, it's nice to have that option.

The red bubble indicates it's a "hot topic with new content", if you hover your cursor over the bubble a description will pop up.
