    Liked the old feature, when you came back to the site, the entries that were new since the last time you were there would be in bold letters. That way you didn't have to remember were you left off.

    Also, PLEASE bring back the "quick search" feature at the top of each respective forum. Much more convenient.

    Hey guys, perhaps we should be posting likes/dislikes/feature requests in the "New Forums Discussions and Questions" thread so the Mods can get the info easier as there wont be random "new forum comment" threads. No offense to the OP of this thread.

    Just click on 'go to first unread'. Your shrink is crazier than mine. You should have spent months at a time on a submarine staring at the bottom of waves through the periscope!

    Wow, the search in the other forums hardly worked at all...really! I tested it and often found that many threads that matched were not returned.....
    Did you notice that when you are in a forum, it defaults to just searching that forum? See this image - notice the checkbox?

    Nice, I never even saw that. I've only accessed the forum with my phone and just plain missed it. Thanks webbie!

    Nice looking , faster refresh. Welcome to the 21st century Hearth.com. Would like to see a break where information articles end and discussions begin for my old eyes though.
    Excellent update overall, thank you.

    I think we can do that!
    There is some kind of color code we can enter which makes stickies highlighted.....I'll dig around.

    Absolutely no doubt that the new forum is faster, smoother and a whole lot better.

    As mentioned though, the feel of sitting around the fire seems to have gone away.

    I don't know why, heck its just a very typical Mssg board.

    Now as far as normal, ???????? Waaaassssattttt ????????? :eek:

    Had some folks over a while back and they just could not believe that we actually use FIRE to heat our home ??

    DUHHHHHH, what else would we be using ???

    Youngsters that have grown up with a heat pump and electric heat strips all neatly packaged away in a silent little box in the mechanical room.

    Hmmm, what about a fire pit in the middle of the tee-pee, that always looked great.

    I do miss the "ratings" though with the cool little titles.

    Maybe those will reapear as time goes by and the admins get the bugs out and tweek things a bit.

    Every new "anything" needs to be tweeked to get it perfect.

    Overall, I give the new digs a solid A++

    Everyday its looking better... Even the little subtle things, make a huge difference.

    The colors are getting better, better breaks between posts, better color for quotes, the board overall looks better with each improvement.

    Just imagine how much adjusting there is for Craig. It's like be seated in a 747's pilot seat and told to fly. Overall, the transition has gone exceptionally well. Kudos to all the magicians working behind the curtain. There will be warts and bumps that will get ironed out, but right now I hope they are getting some rest.

    Craig, what's the new look and feel site/forum and possibly new server running on now?
    Are you still on Windows or Linux?

    Craig, it's looks good and the highlighting is a nice touch. New people taking a look at your web site for the first time will
    appreciate that! Thanks for all the hard work!

    Same server - Centos (linux) 2 core, 2.5 GHZ, 8GB RAM.
    I think this forum will be faster - it has a more modern framework. There are other things I can do to speed it up - but I'm not going to bother until it slows down (and if it does).
