    So... currently when i view it, the 'thread starter' is not the thread starter but the most recent poster. The time listed is the time the thread was started, but not when the most recent post was. A little confusing. I think it makes sense to show both the thread starter\start time and the most recent poster \most recent post time (as the prior forum did)

    I don't want to read political threads. I liked not seeing them. I am running for a local office this fall and this is an escape from any of the BS. Is there a filter/customization to eliminate certain forums from being seen? The 13 pages in this thread is too many to look through for an answer. I dont want to start a new thread and get whipped for doing so or for starting a new thread with a title that violates the code set by the thread title police.

    I'm actually going to work on that today.

    There is a Facebook/Twitter integration software that I just need to get installed. I'll let you guys know when it is ready.

    Is there a quick link when in a thread to go back to the recent posts landing page? Clicking the CF logo at the top takes to the main page. Asking about mobile

    When reading threads, it seems there should be a Back To Threads List button. Maybe I'm just not familiar with the new platform and am missing something, but using the browser's Back button requires the user to then refresh the page to see the updated bold/unbold (unread/read) threads list. Sometimes it takes multiple "backs" to get back to the list. The other alternative is to scroll back to top and select the forum topic list directly from the drill down title (ex: Home > Forums > Site Related > Site and News Announcements).

    Love the new platform. I love change.

    Edit: It looks like kcclones requested a similar thing while I was composing my post.
