We are live with the new Forum!

As you can see, the forum underwent a significant upgrade.  I am still a bit disoriented with all the user interface changes, and I imagine you will as well for the next several weeks.  I'll continue to make tweaks, especially on the header of the page which isn't perfect, but good enough to go live.
 
Hold off on posting bug reports unless you see something really bad.
 
Thanks again for your patience.

What are the new features?  I do not see the button to post a new thread?

Like in the past, is there still a search box where we can type in a location, (city/town, state), and it would give a list of Roadfood places in the area?  If yes, where is it located now? 
 
Much thanks!

Holy Moley! What a change. It looks interesting, but it's going to take me a while to get comfortable with it. Nothing new there. It takes me a while to get comfortable with a new roll of toilet paper.

From what I can tell (so far), I think I'll get adjusted to this version quicker than I did the last two or three.

Just did my first post on a thread and it was a Snap. I like the new look. Congrats!

I like the idea that you can click on a person's name and go back and look at all their recent posts.
That's Kool!

You are going to have to somehow get rid of those blank avatars or make them usable and allow us to edit them. As they are now they are disturbing to me.

Are you planning on putting our "Post Counts" back?
I like keeping track of my posts since I'm approaching the 10,000 mark!

Post counts are there under our names.
 
Only thing I'm not fond of is having to click more times to get where I want to be. I used to be able to go directly to the forums list, and now it requires more clicking. It's not a bug, it's just me not liking wasted effort. I'll get over it.
 
Edit:
And now I'm over it. I finally figured out I had to change my bookmark. All systems go!

What Ed said, it looks nice and clean.  It might take a little bit of time to figure out how to get around, but that is part of the fun.  Thanks for all the hard work Stephen!

I like it.

Question... From Unread Posts view sometimes it takes me to the start of a thread and other times I go to the latest unread post. I there a way to choose where I am going?

Nice job!
 
Thank you!
 
Operationally, it will take some getting used to, but the visuals are an immediate improvement.

I see some poster's comments (MetroplexJim) are still being posted twice. I thought that problem would have been cleared up.

Hmmm.  I only see my post once.  Isn't it a little early for the hard stuff??

I tried to edit my profile and add a " />photo" />. 
 
Total fail.  (Maybe a good thing).

I received an email saying Joe Rogo marked one of my posts as helpful.  Is that something new?  I mean sending out email notices, not Joe being a nice guy.

I received a notice like that, too. Of course my notice wasn't about Joe. He'd never call one of my posts helpful. Come to think of it I wouldn't call one of my posts helpful either.

At the top of the page there is a Reply to post button, on the drop down menu I found post new thread.

Michael, I don't think that is a bug.  That came as a request from Lisa!
