and somehow the transition went smoother than the PDGA's transition to the new site. Yes I went there.

My outbox does not retain any of my sent messages. When I send PMs, they will show in the outbox until I leave the site. When I come back, they're gone. I looked at control panel options, but if anything's there to fix it, I missed it.

Holy cow, there's almost 300 themes on that page! :shock:

So far, and in order of most to least, I like:

overlord
proFormell
ktukblack
proDark

Can you tell I like dark themes? :P

I'm with ya there. I hate "white"/bright themes.

Liking the new forum but have one minor gripe:

I miss how the old forum would mark new posts read even if I skipped them after I browsed and logged out. Sometimes I don't read every single message and the new forum keeps them as unread until I read them even 5 visits later. Is there an option to mark things as new only if its been posted since my last visit instead of everything I haven't read?

That doesn't sound like what he was talking about, and I'd like to second the desire for that (I clicked on the thread to post the same thing completely aside from him heh).

I keep my forum session logged in on my home PC, and it's obnoxious to the point where I don't even really bother checking the site but maybe once a day now (as opposed to maybe twice an hour as I find myself waiting on things at work) and hardly read anything because there's just so many threads the forum is telling me "ZOMG NEW POSTS!!!!" for posts that're all quite old at this point.

I can't tell what's REALLY a new post or not, because I don't compulsively click every thread and read them, so there're TONS of threads the forum says are new or have new posts, but they're just stuff I didn't bother to read, or don't care about new postings to... That used to not matter. I could just close my browser tab and the next time I came here I'd see what was new since my last visit.

The view new posts and view unanswered posts links don't really address this, they just show you every post the forum thinks is new, without them being categorized, and it still shows all the other ones as new, too. Right now the forum tells me there are 129 posts for me to read, and I'd have to hunt through that whole list just to find say, a disc dying thread or trade posts, and even if it was only showing the 44 posts that've been submitted since my last visit, I'd still have no organization to the list...

have you tried the "mark topics read" or "mark forums read" link at the top of the topic page or forums list?
