    I saw the subject "BEAR WITH US" and thought my dog was here! ;)

    Everything is working well for me! Thanks for everything Sharpie!

    Is there a separate thread for bug reports? I am stuck with mobile style on my phone, as the "full site" link (...styleid=25) is currently broken. Thank you again for your hard work!

    Glad that FSU is back! :cheer:
    Among the ranks of those who are squinting. :( I will try working with my monitor settings to see if I can improve things for my aging eyes.

    Just now tried the default mobile style -- and it was much worse! Blindingly white. :eek: That will teach me to try something new when I don't know what I'm getting into. :lol:

    Were you able to get back to the original style?

    The mobile style looks good on my Blackberry -- much easier to read on my phone than the regular style. It's a nice option to have. I agree, though, that it's too white for viewing on a regular screen. The regular style is rather bright too. I do appreciate the clean layout.

    I switched my PC to the mobile style, and the only way I was able to go back was to hit my browser back arrow until I saw the original style, then clicked on that arrow again and chose the original one.

    Agreed on both.

    This looks too much like Goldenskate though. I stopped going there partly because of the looks. Any chance we could get our old fsu colors back? The old site was more recognizable, and had its own identity. I can get used to the functionality here, but would love to have the old 'look' back. Actually when I say 'look' I don't just mean it in the superficial way; the old board was easier on my eyes, and I do have good eye sight (no glasses needed).

    If you scroll down to the bottom of the mobile view and click on "Full Site" you get the vB4 Default Style back.

    Yes, by finally figuring out to do what Really said above.

    I feel as though I've been abducted by aliens. :lol:

    Apologies if this question has already been asked and answered, but what do the different colors on the envelopes next to each thread mean? It looks like grey means inactive, but there's also pink and blue (on my screen anyway).

    Blue means new posts, grey means you've read it (or marked it as read). I'm guessing the pink ones are 'popular' threads with more than a minimum number of posts.

    Thanks! Very strangely the "full site" link works on PC but not on my phone (Android + Opera Mini). Got "404 not found" error. I am hesitant to clear cache and wanted to ask if the link works for others.

    Hate this change. It looks too much like the other skating forums now. :( I always liked FSU's unique style. I do appreciate that you are trying to make things faster tho, so thanks, Sharpie. I guess we'll all get use to the change in time .....

    I changed my Default Style from vB4 to vB3 and I think I much prefer the colours and icons. Anyone else tried changing the Default Style. Hmm ... just noticed a little yellow box show up on the RHS saying "auto saving". Hmmm, another little trinket :)

    Re phones, I'm on my iPhone right now and the new interface rocks. :respec: It's much easier to use, and quicker too.

    I though vB3 was what we were on. This is much easier on the eyes. Thank you!

    I prefer vb3 also. There is much more of a contrast between threads with new posts in them and threads without.

    As you've noticed, the default style is now a more vB3 orientated one. Hope you like this change. And yes, the lips will be coming back :p

    Is there a way to see the Forums page first when I click on fsu? I am getting a whole list of the lastest posts, which I don't care for. I normally select a forum that I am interested in. I hope I am being clear.

    Personally, I'd get rid of the "What's New" page all together. Reminds me too much of the crap that Facebook forces us to have on our screen (and it's kind of creepy - makes me feel like a voyeur even if everything is public :lol:)

    Yes, you were clear as day. The forum is now the default page. Keep the suggestions coming! :D

    How about making the user cp and reputation available in the mobile style?
