    I've only used my tablet / phone (Android) a handful of times to post here, mostly because you have to go to the "Full Site" to post, which makes it more difficult to navigate. If their app / mobile site would give the same posting ability without hindering the look and feel of it, that would be much better. I keep suggesting changes to this new layout...but only a couple have been changed...you'll see tomorrow what I mean.

    I had them change the number of characters shown when you quote someone...now, you see maybe 50 characters (if that) and you have to choose "Read More" to see the full comment, even if it's only a few characters longer. The layout is ok, but I think the forum / comments sections leave a lot to be desired.

    It does appear the moderators are viewing this thread, though, as one response I got indicated they are watching the "New Forum Layout thread" to see the feedback...but they also indicated the best option would be to use the green Feedback button on the right side of the page.

    I hope WRAL fixes the bugs in the system before they roll out the new format. I haven't even tried it yet, as I'd rather wait until it goes live.

    I've noticed more obtrusive ads here as well - some of them flash on and off and are distracting. "Lucky" for me, I have old technology - I use a laptop we got in '09, so I don't have any ipad or android issues, but I've also had to re-post some posts that seem to have disappeared.

    @70 - I've experienced the spyware issues recently, and I keep getting notices about popups, which I have blocked. Frequently, if I've searched for something on-line, ads for those items appear on the sides of this forum.

    Luckily I haven't seen any obtrusive ads on the new layout, they are all over to the side from what I've seen. The layout itself is decent, but not great...they could have done much better in my opinion.

    Something else that's annoying is I reported a bug yesterday, regarding the oldest / newest first issue....now I get a single page for either Oldest first or Newest first, there's not multiple pages like it used to be. I reported it again, but it seems the folks handling the coding need some help.

    Ok! They fixed that oldest / newest first issue. Making progress. :)

    I'm getting lots of spyware notices as well. Come on WRAL.

    I like the larger print vs the old Sportsfan. All new programs have a few niches to work out. It's a better format though. Most all things are now being connect to the major media programs.

    I came back to Facebook since November since the Roanoke News Sports programs went to this type of forum. Still a few things to work out. Still better; overall.

    Thanks for keeping us posted on the progress of the new site, and for being proactive with WRAL by letting them know what isn't working. Tomorrow should be interesting here:)

    In case we aren't able to post much starting Wednesday, Happy New Year and good luck to each of you.

    ;)

    Looks like they've made some progress fixing the bugs I've reported. It's better, but still needs improvement. I don't like that there is no edit button or no "preview" before you start a new topic, though. I added those as feature requests...if enough people request it, they'll probably bring it back.

    Use the Feedback button to request changes / report problems.

    Happy New Year to you as well, '70, and to you, TIZU. I'll use the Feedback button to request changes; the "edit" and "preview" buttons are too important to be omitted from the new forum features.

    Absolutely agree! Do it! :D

    Just found another bug...the quote feature doesn't work when you're quoting more than 1 person in the same quote.

    Reported. :)

    Looks like they fixed that one, too. Cool.
