I'm not sure about this new look!  I found it hard to log in and it's a bit harder navigating the site.  Maybe over time we'll get used to it.  As I'm typing this, I find the font quite small, but if I change to to the 150, it's too big.  There must be a happy medium.
I changed the font to see what it would look like at the 150 size.  This is it.

Behind you 100% Cindy - this new look is not friendly!
I am doing a "Quick Reply" and in doing so the box covers a lot of your post that I am replying to, that is no help. Also having the last post 1st means you have if you are doing a Reply instead of Quick Reply the original post is at the bottom, at least that is my experience. Don't like this at all!!!

I get that things have to be upgraded, but I would hope that it would be easier to navigate.
I don't like the fact that I have to log out and then log back in to get on.I had to that yesterday and today, yet I have the "remember me" box checked.  Oh well, maybe in a couple of days I won't have to go that route. 
I do like some changes.  Like at the top of this post are all the options like, like color, font size, emojis.

Hi there.  Thanks for the feedback and the email notification about this post.  Sorry for all the changes... the whole website software had to be updated; we had no choice.  We can configure some settings on the Discussion Group, so if there is something on your wish list, please let me know and we'll see what we can do.

In the meantime, I set the ordering of posts to "Oldest First" instead of newest first.  I hope that works better for you.

Unfortunately the "Quick Reply" pops-up a new window, which partially covers the previous posts.  But if you use the regular "Reply" functionality it gives you a larger box to type-in with all the previous posts underneath.  That seems to work pretty nicely.

As far as the "Remember Me" functionality and having to log-in again, that is something that may be determined by your device.  But we will look into the issue and see if there is a fix for that.

I made the default font size a bit larger, so hopefully you won't have to change the font size each time.

Thank you, Jeff Cooper, PDSA

I changed the "Quick Reply" from a pop-up box to always being displayed at the bottom of the thread. Let me know if you like that better.

Thanks, Jeff

Thanks, Jeff!  I agree with Mel, you do do a good job!  And thanks for listening.
Just a thought, is there some way you could give us a heads up about making changes?  That way we won't totally be surprised by them.

Yeah, I should have posted something on here before we did the switchover. Sorry about that. We are now all up to date, so there shouldn't be anything new for a while. I'm not sure I'm being notified of replies to a topic, so I'll look into that.

Thanks, Jeff
