Something else I've just found - the link to the Gold Member Offers Threads forum doesn't seem to be on the main forum list anymore. I was able to find it by clicking through 4 links or so from a post which had a link to membership levels/how to upgrade etc. so wondering if there's a quicker/easier way (other than bookmarking) to actually find it?
These are at the top of the forum home page now.

And the smilies - not so many now, I thought there were considerably more on the previous version?
The number will be increased in time as emoji support is enabled. The amount now is the default set.

How long should it take for an avatar change to populate throughout the upgraded system ?

I can see your new avatar now, it seems to say ...POINT. Hard to see the whole word with a circular avatar. As it is all CDN-based, it can vary person to person as you might receive your images from a different server to me, based on your location.

Been playing around with it - just can't get it to stick.

Having just looked at the Lounge meets is there a way that date could be highlighted to be more easily seen amongst the detail?

Maybe bolding/different colour text and/or bright shading so each date stands apart from the general text?

Thanks for considering.

Apparently we now have a hugs button but for some reason I can't see it.
There seems to be a blank spot to the right of the "informative" button; perhaps that's where it will land. When you touch that blank spot, a hug is recorded (see your post above) with the word "hug", but no icon, nor is it in the correct position. Still a WIP, I guess.

Sounds like a way to keep everyone happy. Those that want it, can use it. Those that don't want it, don't see it. :)

It looks like a heart. I cleared the cache and it showed up. You hugged a post of mine earlier today.
I did, that was me testing the blank spot I can see as TV told me the hug was there and it was the reaction I wanted to use. I only noticed as I was like looking for the heart eyes face.

Thankfully that one has gone.

This is currently a work in progress as we try to find the right balance. I am leaving April alone but May, June and July have adopted a new style. If these work for most then they’ll continue to be used going forward.

The annoying thing for me, perhaps less so for others, is that while the new tables work great, I still can’t use column span like in the wiki, which does limit the look somewhat.
Apparently we now have a hugs button but for some reason I can't see it.
TL;DR you need to clear your cache as the asset is shared with the existing reactions and thus will not be picked up immediately.

The previous system was being flagged by OSX as consuming excessive resources if I was using Safari. It was so bad that I couldn’t even write a reply and had to resort to Chrome if I wanted to make a comment. This works just fine....
