Also, can we also get larger images by default so I don't have to click on every image to see what it is with my old man eyes.
Possibly. Which images?
For instance the image I posted, if you click it, it opens in a new at its original size. Pretty much every image uploaded using the new image tool instead of a direct link does this now, they post as a small preview image with a link to the original size image. It doesn't seem like the usual BBCode tricks to change the height or width have any affect on this behavior. The default used to be to post at the original size unless you changed it to be a different size. I understand there possibly needing to be a limit but right now I feel like the default is very small.

Sorry if this has already been answered. I've been away from the site for a week. Is "view new posts" gone?
Click on the "Quick links" in the top left, you'll see a New posts option.
Awesome! Thanks

That's the postimg extension we've installed not something we've made a conscious choice about. It displays thumbs and then you click through to the larger image.

I think I've found a hack to make it display the full image so we'll have a play with it.

I agree with this. I also miss the link that would take you to just the threads you previously had posted in, to narrow down viewing each topic that's had new posts since your last visit.
That link is in the quick links my menu, top left, that egrimens referred to.
Thanks. Completely overlooked the "Your Posts" link. :P Thanks and great job with the new site everyone!

Why can I no longer edit my post? Has that always had a time limit before, or is that new?
There has always been a time limit on editing. Not entirely sure why. It's not changed since we upgraded but might be something we could change in the future.

Certain someone's went back and deleted their entire post histories, and there was fear that this would happen with future scammers as well.

If scammers get to stay so we can "keep an eye on them" as has been explained in the past, why should the rest of us suffer and not be able to edit previous posts?

I don't have a problem with it. I also think ya should be able to delete yer entire account and posts if ya want. fudge even zuck allows ya to "delete" yer account (even though they still have all yer daters anyway).

so if drymount can be turned into drymount....any way we can make it so all of CodeBlues "fudge" is turned into real words.
This is the main thing I am looking for in new EB.

Technically fudge is a real word. :D

Fudge is actually another swear filter for something else.
