Also the site seems significantly faster than before.My 2 cents:
Different aesthetics: meh. Just got to get used to it I guess. I do wish that the inline images were a little bigger on desktop.
Stuff loss during the conversion: Disappointing but not a huge deal. Stuff that I noticed is gone includes:
Animated gif profile images, but they can be re-uploaded.
Profile images in general, some of them got weird.
Previously followed content being gone is probably the biggest functional loss that I've noticed. But I've already rebuilt it in my watched threads (your milage may vary).
Having a library of uploaded attachments was useful if you often use the same gifs. Meh, just a different system to learn.
Some inline images seem to have disappeared, but others didn't. ¯\_(ツ)_/¯
For whatever it's worth. Watch threads and notification work much better in the new system in my opinion.
None of this is a deal breaker. Change is inevitable.
The issue is now I have to go into each forum to do this. I was able to stay on the main page previously and click the word bubble to mark the entire civil forum as read. But now,I have to go into the civil forum and then click that button.
I despise change, it's why I work with utilities.
For you. But honestly, it is very close to being a dealbreaker for me.None of this is a deal breaker. Change is inevitable.
As do I. It's why I'm in government.I despise change, it's why I work with utilities.
Have you tried re-uploading your avatar image? That fixed the non-moving gifs. I'm wondering if it will fix the background color issue....
A big thing that's a little annoying (not a huge deal breaker), is that my icon has a weird speckled black/white background, but when I go to check/mod on my preferences, it shows as a normal white background.
Oooo that seems to have worked. I literally saved my avatar directly from EB and reuploaded. Super weird, since I didn't change the pic in any way.Have you tried re-uploading your avatar image? That fixed the non-moving gifs. I'm wondering if it will fix the background color issue.
