The mobile version is now back in action too... We have a new app in the works also that's a few weeks away from being ready that will run natively and add all the usual app features we've all been missing for all platforms.

I'm finding that I occasionally get a nice new board design, but more often than not I get a real hash of almost illegible and poorly laid out lines of text.

And the banner at the top is a mess -- I see all of locations for all of the American national tours, which means I have to scroll way way down to see the boards.

The new BWW looks great and is just as easily navigable as the old, but I will agree on the bright white background. It's a little tough on the eyes when reading for a long time.

We've increased the line spacing ever-so slightly on the text, and switched from a bright white to an off white as well. New Board Design!

I think it's great. I was wondering if you had or if I had just gotten used to it.

I just posted on two threads on the OT board, and my writing appeared to be center-aligned, rather than left-aligned.

Also, I couldn't italicize or bold words.

I agree with harder to read. But, I'll admit to being old. New Board Design!

Actually, the main board seems to be better than the OT board.
The spacing on the OT board also seems to be cut off slightly at the top?

Congratulations on the board development work, Rob.
And thanks for asking for our thoughts on this thread!

I'm using Internet Explorer 9. The new design is only occasionally visible, and the search function doesn't work at all.

I like it, I think. People tend to hate change, but after a few days the old style will be forgotten.

Was the old style in use since the start of BWW (2004?)?
Sick, pathetic POS

Rob, the new Board seems overly sensitive to the touch on my IPad--as I scroll down, it frequently jumps to items I don't want to see, and I have to start at the beginning all over again. Very annoying.

I think this is great and an update was long overdue.

One question I have and it happened on this new and old board but after I make a post is there anyway to just have it keep you in that thread and show the post you just made instead of taking you back to the main board?

Is there now a way to go to the last unread message in a thread? I've never been able to find that feature here, I've had to just keep clicking through pages until I find a new post. I tried clicking on the little envelope but that just takes me to the first post. Am I doing something wrong??

You can jump to the last page by clicking on the 'last comment' column of the board.

We've also just made a slew of updates to the mobile board, which should now load 4-6 times faster.

More to come!
