    1. I love being able to sort the news feed by Phone & Tablet, again.

    2. Still no notifications on responses to blog comments - I suppose you guys are working on it.

    No problem. I have nothing to do with actually fixing it but I forwarded on the "bug report" over to Admin immediately and they got to work on it ASAP.

    Anything I can ever do within my given position & skill level I will always do for you the members

    Version 1 was great. Version 2 was a valiant effort, but fell short (imo). Version 3 is AWESOME!!!!! Keep up the good work.

    One suggestion. It be great if you could seach for all your comments on the blog just like you can search for all your posts on the forums.

    Can you guys PLEASE tone down the big banners at the top?

    I'd like to arrive on the site with at least one story visible, instead I have to wait for humongous graphics to load which serve no purpose but to take you to a story (that, chances are, you've already read).

    Banner creep seems to be all the rage these days. Some of us read this on data plans.

    Is there a similar link for the forum? I like to have efficient use of space when I'm in the forum, is it really necessary to have the Search, Popular Forums and Trending at the top and taking up the first page? I feel like this is something that could be toggled?

    The mouse roll-over info is missing from the menubar choices in the primary editor (basic) while doing a routine "reply" to message (not in Advanced). This is using IE9/Win7.

    Is there any way we can set our default editor so as not to have to select "Switch Editor" every time? (NM, I found the setting in UserCP)

    Also, appreciate the larger fonts in AC overall, but in the primary editor (well, basic editor), upon a reply, the default font is still very small as displayed on the screen. Can that be increased? It's fine in the "Switch Editor" mode and advanced.

    Version 3 is much better than v1 and v2. Thanks!

    Im with the two posters above me, we need a function to minimize the search popular bar. Screen real estate is a top priority. Having to scroll past that each time is enough to make me not want to come here to read. It truly is too much.

    Yes, we discussed putting a Collapse / Expand button on the lower part of the "forums super navigation". So we'd still show the upper block with your user avatar/ search forums / find your device forum, but the lower portion of that block with the popular forums / trending topics could be collapsed / expanded (and remembered by cookie).

    Don't have an ETA on this, but will put it on the list. Hopefully can make that happen fairly quickly.

    Now that I've had a chance to use it more, I do have to agree with others that there is too much white. It wasn't as noticeable earlier at work on older monitors, but now at home on my newer laptop, it's virtually blinding white to the point I almost have to turn down the brightness level of the screen.
    I like white! That's where the clean look comes from! Also, the bold and italic buttons in both editors have been working fine for me (Win7/IE9).

    Yeah, I was not kidding about the white. I think it's the white that gives it such a nice clean and crisp unobstructed look. I really do like it.

    Hey, is there any way you could fix it so when you scroll totally to the top of the forum, that you could see the path navigation bar?

    This one..

    Android Forums at AndroidCentral.com > HTC Android Phones > Verizon HTC Thunderbolt Forums > Thunderbolt better with age

    I'm so used to just scrolling to the top of forum pages and quickly choosing to change area this way (or bottom, same issue here at AC). It it s little bit of a pain to have to hunt for it because it is below so many other things. I wind up scrolling to the top, then down until I find it, sometimes passing it yet again, and then scrolling back up, then clicking on where I want to go. Oh... and it is such a small font.

    Thanks for all the work. I do like this v3!

    Good feedback. We'll put this on the to do list as something to look at. The font on the breadcrumb definitely is a little small, especially relative to the other fonts we're using which are quite a bit bigger. In the same note, we also want to work on the pagination a bit (page one, two, etc.) so it's a bit bigger - need to be easy to tap when browsing on a phone.

    Multi-quote button doesn't work here in the forum...??

    Anyway the link above is great if you access it from a book mark or something, but if you arrive via the primary URL, you would expect to click the link in the "Headlines" section and achieve the same results.

    However that link (shown below) fails to do anything in any browser I've tried it with:

    Pretty sure that link is just there to let you get out of phone-only, tablet-only views. You can't really expect a huge web site to banish banners just for you -- I'm surprised they gave you a link at all. lol.

    Bug report. I'm having an issue with how the forum shown old vs new (i.e. read vs unread) threads. Sometimes I log in and it shows threads as yellow (unread) even though I've read those threads and there hasn't been any new post on them. Sometimes I log in and it shows threads as blue (read), but it's definitely new stuff I haven't seen.

    I've been trying to pay attention, but I haven't been able to figure out a pattern. Maybe you guys can look into it. Or maybe I'm just not using the forum right, and someone needs to expain it to me.

    Are you guys still tweaking stuff? Looks like my option "show 40 posts per page" is not working. Stuck on 10.

    Tried logging out then back in. Changed it to 30, saved, back to 40, saved. Still shows 10. Using Firefox latest build.

    New bug: when there is a really long thread with multiple pages, and you click on "last page" you get taken many pages before the last page.

    Edit: Found something that is probably directly tied into the bug above. I have my posts per page set at 30 but its only showing 10 per page.
    So I think the forum is sending me to a page after I hit last page that its thinking I am showing 30 posts per page. Hope that made sense.

    Was working fine yesterday, so this just came up today.
