Hi Melissa,

Some of the questions I have heard so far:

Is there a way to delete our siggies when posting in certain threads? (I think this is a big thing when grads are posting on TTCing sites/threads, for instance)

Is there a way to *not* preview the text of the thread on the front page (therefore making the front page hold more threads in a smaller area)?

Is there a way to *not* see the first message in a thread at the top of each page of the thread?

Thanks for your help!

How do you change your siggies? It looks like mine is all text and I was just wondering for when I want to change mine.

Also, on our threads with the tickers in the first post, you have to scroll through all the tickers on every single page, since that's the first post. So basically every time I open the pregnancy thread I have to look at all the tickers before I can see any new posts. I guess we could fix that by putting the tickers in the second thread or something?

Here are some comments from me:

What I don't like

- the previews of the first post on the main page of the board. It just makes the front page way too long. I can understand why this might be good for some people, but it would be nice to have the option to just show topics instead (as before)

- the first message of each thread being at the beginning of each page in the thread. This makes it teadious to read.

- Not having the nice red flags that showed the threads I had commented on

- Not being able to choose who I can reply too. Replying to all is a useful feature, and if I want to reply to a certain person, I have to scroll back to their message specifically instead of choosing them from a drop-down list

- the ads between the posts! YUCK!!

- I can't seem to find a listing of the most recent posts made to the board without having to click a bunch of times to a certain page (this is the same with a lot of other features)

- not being able to edit my signature on individual posts

What I do like:

- being able to edit my text!! YAY! I'm a Firefox user, so finally being able to add color to my text is nice :)

- inserting photos is much easier

- being able to see the last person to post to a thread

- LOVE that you can view the thread in a popup window! Makes it so much nicer to answer mulitple posts

That's all I can think of for now!

Thank you for the link to that survey -- I filled it out and really told them what I thought about the upgrade (in a constructive manner of course!!).
