I agree. I'd like the countries/flag back, RR back, make multi-quoting easier, old emojis, and a few more things. But I'm happy the original blue is back.

Big time!  Hooray for contrast when trying to read!  I also very much appreciate that the reply numbers are back with each post, rather than an obscure post ID number.  Also, thank you for bringing back the old favicon which makes the a.net browser tab easy to find again.

Thanks for the improvments.

I agree, the blue is a big improvement.  

Now I seem to have lost the ability to return to forum discussions at the same place I left off at.  Does anyone know what happened to the link for sending you to the first unread post in a topic?

Thanks!

Nice. Maybe reduce the post-author box size a bit on the left, e.g., reduce font size on the posts joined etc. part.

I do like the colours!

That's the icon for 'Hot Topic', a topic that has received a lot of replies in a short time.

have to weigh in and say thank you for the change to what I think is actually one of the better contrasting color schemes i've seen in a long time. that old version was horrid.. I hope someone got tied to the fence at SXM while the AF 340 departs as a punishment for that mess. As others have said, still a ways to go to clean up the other pieces that are needed, but this is a huge step in the right direction

On my iPad the text size is painfully small. Of course my eyes are also atrocious. I've tried make NG the text size larger in Safari, but I haven't tried this site in a different browser yet.

Well, Mods, I guess the overwhelming verdict is positive, kudos. As others have mentioned the return of the flags would be nice. The red dot on the notification bell is alright but it notifies me of all comments that are made, whether I am watching that thread or not. Like to be able to configure it to notify me of a thread that I am watching or better yet, bring back the 'yellow star' denoting a topic that I am watching or participating in.

Yes. Thank you! Thank you for bringing this color back. The white was hurting my eyes and 10 mins of reading through the Trip Reports I had to shut it off. This is much easier on the eyes.

OK...like the rest said, GREAT improvement. However like a previoius poster, said, it is almost unreadable on an ipad and iphone, as the text is way to small. Other forum sites, you can "pinch" the screen, and make the screen bigger to read everything. You can not do that here.

Again, GREAT improvement, but you need to address the iphone and ipad to make the text bigger by letting us "pinch" the screen.

I had grown accustomed to the new colors. But bringing back the blues is nice too. I see you were able to get rid of the carriage return (CR) that was inserted above each text entry... Nice work guys.

I don't think there's "lots to be done." The sentimentalists have got their blue back, which is sad for those of us who liked the white site and found it easy to navigate, but I guess majority rules.

Everything functions as it should for me, so - what else?
