But I still find the forum slightly less easy to use than it was before.  I tried the 'Show unread posts since last visit.' link, but that gives me a list of scores of posts, most of which are of no interest to me.
Where's that 'Don't Understand  ???' rating when you need it...

That functions exactly as it's always done and is unrelated to the feedback options so I don't understand how changing the ratings system has in any way made the forum "slightly less easy to use than it was before"...

Excuse my ignorance in reference to the word emojis to describe the icons at the end of the post :doh: I think I have been spending too much time testing my kids on the phone :goggleeyes: Am I right in understanding that what we use in a post is an emoji being a descriptive picture? And the same character being called an icon if it is to perform an action. :confused2:

Because, as Laurence said, he used the presence of the thank you button at the top of the post as an aide memoir  to whether heíd read the post or not. The degradation now being that he has to start reading before knowing if heís read it or not. For me thatís a hugely tenuous use though!

So...
He used to Click on the Thank you Button on the last post in the thread or every post in the thread (regardless of whether he agreed with it) so he had a marker of posts read???  :headbutt:

That means that any thank you given by him is totally meaningless and potentially unmerited... - all the more reason for changing the system then...

Anybody else missing the new icons/emojis at the bottom of posts? Also, and I do not know if this is connected, the forum is being extremely slow this evening.  ???

Maybe someone clicked the "remove Emoji" emoji :angel:

Seriously, given the current speed of the forum someone is working on it at the moment so I expect they will reappear, hopefully thinned and better spaced so they can be used on mobile device screens.

Even though 'spending less time on forums' is not one of my resolutions, I sense that I will be spending less time here. Because yes, change is bad: but bad change is worse.
