    The only thing I miss if I think of the old AK is the message posts list. It would be easier to notice milestone posts if it was still available.

    The new one has grown on me, I didn't like it at first but that would be normal with anything new. Matter of fact, I hardly remember the old one.

    What I miss from the old one is the ability to see if a thread has any attachments in it. Aside from this, all works quite well and pretty user-friendly interface.

    Can't think of anything more at the moment, mind you, I only had one espresso so far. :D

    I didn't like the old PM box because it didn't hold much history. I was constantly having to delete old emails so it would still accept new ones, or arbitrarily delete by age. I haven't needed to delete a single one since we changed and I have a lot more going on in it than before.

    I don't miss anything about the old site format, it was to old when we switched. In fact there is another site I belong to that was/is the same as the old one. I gradually stopped posting there because my computers and generally all the changes in internet technology make doing anything there other than writing difficult. I can't post vids or images anymore on that site. This is unfortunate because I like a lot of the members there.

    Other than the color tones and it wasn't as contrasting when we changed to the new so I didn't like that. But thats all been fine tuned and we got used to it.

    The other thing I don't like and Luther did it for members with old equipment and slow systems. He reduced the image posting size, at first the images were 100% of the box and he cut it to 50%. This was done to speed up page loading for old technology users. Aesthetically and with my vision they looked better at 100% on the page and you didn't need to click zoom it. So we get a 50% view or click the image that can be so huge you can't see it that way either.

    Oh yeah, I also don't like the "insert image" option re-sizing a pic to a smaller version on the new format. I figure with the new format and the talk of more bandwidth that came with it, pictures from our computers can be inserted without compression.
