It’s been a week and I love it, so ¯_(ツ)_/¯
I love pictures. Love the go-to post interface within the threads. Love the OneBox. Love phone notifications for replies and pm’s. Love the differing skins (I use the dark one myself). I love that it’s SO MUCH EASIER and useful to link to the SDMB on Twitter/Facebook (before, I would always have to make a tapatalk disclaimer “if it asks you to download an app, just click no”. Hated typing that sentence. Hated it. And now I don’t have to.) the ability to post emojis.
I can go on. Here, watch…
My biggest concern is post size - 3,500 characters seem far too little and this limit has caused me to revamp a pretty large post I was working on prior to the change… but then, the change is making me redo the entire thing as well, given I can now add charts, graphs, and tables in picture format, so maybe it doesn’t need to be as wordy.
Which I love, the need to revamp this thing, so no big deal. Regardless, 3,500 characters is too small.
Keep pictures as they are, using community pressure and pre-defined limits (per forum) to limit their use. But I think it would be insane to remove them en masse and I’m actually a bit resentful for calls to do so.
I dislike the return of the ‘I agree’ post. Hated them on the old board, not pleased that… with the elimination of ‘likes’… that such space-wasting nonsense has to be ported over. Don’t like the white space? Agree, but I also don’t like information-less posts. Give us the ability to like posts and get rid of the ‘I agree’s’.
Regardless, even if the above doesn’t get any better, I’m thrilled with the new design.
And since this is my thread, pictures allowed.
