Some feedback for the new forum design...

Thought maybe we could put it all in one place?

 

Can I change the font so it is easier for me to read?

I think displaying gender of members is inappropriate.

Don't like the format and yes I agree re gender, although with mine it's obvious..

Fonts can be changed on the text box, the default is  smaller text size, I can ask if the default can be set slightly larger.

Have to agree - I'm not a fan of the new version, especially the font

People aren't going to change the font every single time they reply so people can see it. That's mental when the problem is the default is too small, too narrow and too light.

I dont mind the font size. I’m not a fan of the new content section. All the new content from the old site is gone

Completely rubbish update.

How dare EB décidé to display poster’s gender and location without consultation.

And that’s not even going into how completely fugly the site is now.

While it shouldnt be visible, if you go to edit profile you can set it to not telling

 

ETA, can set to blank space and it removes gender from view under name

Thanks squeekums. Completely inappropriate for it be be public. Although somehow Dadto2 doesnt have it on his? How did he do that??

 

I just went on to my profile and it displays my first name. Can I ask someone to please click on my profile and let me know if my name shows up to you? If it does that is also incredibly inappropriate.

I like this update. The gender thing is weird, so I changed mine to a blank space, so it no longer appears. I'm not sure why I ever set it to Female in the first place - the new me would never do this.

I agree with others that the font is quite slight, and I'd really love a way to make my browsing 'hidden'.

Other than that, I think this new setup will be more user-friendly.

Not having a go at you Squeekems, but on that....

Bit late when the information has already been displayed.  All profile information should be private unless profile owner actively changes the setting to public!  "not telling' is also a ridiculous option. How about unspecified or irrelevant?

It's under your profile name on the screen next to your comment.

I think I'm blind - I can't see a newspaper button?

 

Edit - ooh, I'm all gendery, as if the UN wasn't enough. I think there's only three guys who post regularly anyway, and two of us have "dad" in our UN!

I couldn't see it, but maybe I'm looking wrong. Then again, I can't see my real name in my profile anywhere either.

 

 

My question is there a way to make the last activity bit private? I kind of like the incognito (and there's a word I had trouble spelling) aspect.

yes, it's a bit much to have all activity on display.  

How do I change that setting to me only?

And how do we remove old attachments??? I have gone into the original post and edited to remove attachments and they are taken out of the poist, but stay as an attachment in my list of attachments!

Inkogneatoh, when I clicked on my profile (to change my gender status) it showed my first name and postcode on the panel on the left hand side.

Turns out I randomly chosen "male" when I created my account years ago, I am actually female....

 

Not that anyone needs to know either way!
