FWIW, I don't mind change suggestions, and I don't take those requests as being disrespectful or dismissive of our efforts, so please feel free to make suggestions.
Move Like and Reply to the left side. I keep clicking Report by mistake. I don't mind adding some height by moving Report+Edit+Delete+Bookmark to a separate row.

I noticed that the icon that sits next to the web address when you save the site as a bookmark hasn't changed since the update. It's no biggie, but it does look like the old logo. Maybe an updated icon there would be a nice addition.

Sorry I don't see the logo you refer to. Do you have a screenshot? I just looked at my bookmarks list.

It's called "Watched." On mobile, it's under the 'hamburger' menu.

Hope this helps,

Loving the new design. That green dot on new posts that showed up today though, sorry not a fan. Personally, bold thread title is enough.

Also, small thing, but on an iPhone I notice that scrolling down in the list of threads, I can inadvertently swipe left or right a little bit instead of just straight down or up. Doesn’t happen once in the thread itself though.

A few people noted issues discerning the font weight (bold, normal) and so the green dot is to help visually scan much faster the threads that have new content.

Is the color the issue? That can be changed. Are you on a Dark or Light theme?

For the swipe left/right, I haven't been able to replicate that on my Android phone. Sorry.

I think the issue is more psychological. It feels like an unread email. But obviously I can’t read every single thread. And so I’m left slightly uncomfortable feeling of a to-do list that will never be done. The little green dot is a brain hack, I guess, unintentionally, that calls too much attention to itself. I never felt that way when the title was just bold or not bold. I’m on the dark theme.

I understand. Sorry about that. I did just changed the color, hopefully it will mitigate the impact. I'll keep an eye opened for potentially different solution.

Wait a sec. I just noticed it’s blue now. Was it blue before it was green and I just never noticed it? So weird how the brain works. Blue was and is fine for me, lol!

I thought it would help, the green was a bit too "sharp." :)

Cheers!

I asked in a previous post if what was "Recent posts" is now "New Posts", but it doesn't look like it is. The difference is that if you post in a thread, it doesn't show up in New Posts. I always used Recent Posts because it was the quick way to see the most recent everything, whether or not you posted in them. Is there a way this functionality can be restored?
