    By default, the post being quoted includes a link to it, so all you need do is click on that.

    Yep. A tiny little arrow pointing "up" right next to the quoted member's name.

    Sure would be nice for us blind types, if it were a bit larger.

    It's "so stark, and cold" because the background is such a bright WHITE. It's sort of like trying to read a typewritten letter while holding it toward the Sun. It's quick, certain, path to eyestrain.

    I have the lighter blue current page number, too. But the contrast is so slight between the current page and the rest of the page numbers that I have a problem telling the difference between them.

    How about numbering the uploads as before.
    The number would take one to a special link url for that numbered upload
    making it easier to share on a PM.
    Today one can not even PM, "yo, check out number 17 in the #@& thread."

    Répondez s'il vous plaît

    Update on this: I went back to that forum, and my comment was embedded in the quoted message I was responding to. I know about mouse placement...that wasn't the problem. As I mentioned, in the Edit post it looked fine and my comment was in place. Notice this posted twice, #239 and #240. So, is this going to be a problem due to my computer or device? Or are others having similar issues.

    I just made a post, and then the system logged me off. How does that keep happening? Where are the mods to answer our questions? Are they sick of us already?

    They're working on problems in the background, we probably won't see them for a few weeks.

    Besides numbered uploads, I am missing
    "national origin" of the author.
    Really. It added flavor knowing I was
    reading an Italian or French view point.

    Large font because I am so ignored here.

    May I repeer my proposition to change the colour of the hyperlinks? :worship:
    Th current one is greenish, which is very similar to the black font, hence hard to distinguish.
    Thanks.

    Yeah, there are still some strange quirky things going on. So far, so good tonight with getting logged off at random times. We'll see how it goes. Maybe they've fixed that issue.

    Just wondering if their is an option to wrap text in 'quote' tags, rather then having to type them out?
