Do we really need picture attachments that are 3000x4000 and 3 MB in size? That'll fill up storage space quickly, slows down page loads and uses website bandwidth for no reason. Especially on mobile devices or on slower WiFi connections. Please enable automatic picture resizing on the forum so it will resize images to a smaller size when uploading..

It has a mobile look for smartphone which looks good.
Can't find the forum on Tapatalk at all though.
Can you now upload photos directly here ?
Worked out how to attach the photos :thumbup:

I preferred previous look. Plus, when you click on “mark topics read”. There is a screen message stating they have been marked as read, and needs to be closed.

A minor point for sure, but seems unnecessary as I know I have now marked them as read. This will happen a lot for me, so a little irritation.
You are right - another box pops up, although a single mouse click (anywhere) closes it. It is not necessary to position on the box or anything, so it is literally an extra click.
Thanks Richard.

I used click as an example as I use my iPad Pro and thought I would have to be accurate in my screen tapping. But you are correct, a quick tap anywhere on screen gets rid of box. So no real hassle. Still seems a tad unnecessary tho.

By the way! I usually use hidden status, but I can now see my username at the bottom of screen. It is italicised, so is it just me or can everyone see it. I’ve sent a PM to Kip about this, in case it’s a possible glitch.

If you are on line I can’t see your name listed, but I can see mine in italics.

Thanks you for your patience everyone. We are back live!!

You may notice some minor navigation changes...

The quick link box in the upper left corner

You name in the upper right with a drop down menu for easy access to the User Control Panel and your Profile.

TapaTalk users, please note: Tapatalk is the final element of the upgrade so it may not be totally functional with the forum for awhile yet.

Please, should you notice any issues, please notify me by pm or email.
