    Is there a way to get the old desktop forum on your phone back? I appreciate the initiative but the design of the new one is pretty rough from a usability standpoint.

    If not, here are my suggestions:

    -Reduce the size of everything but the text. As I write this, a third of my screen is formatting buttons that I don't need on mobile. It is hard to pick out what everyone's writing as the signatures are the same size as the text and the blocks above and below are gigantic

    -Make the quote option next to the like button instead of via the three dot menu. It's an extra unnecessary step for something that gets used a lot. The flag button can stay hidden in that menu.

    -Overall it just feels really hard on the eyes. I don't know how you fix that but the old desktop on mobile was super easy to read and interact with.
    I know they just released an App, perhaps it's better on the App? I haven't checked since the update though, so not sure if there is a difference.

    Was there a technical reason for the upgrade to vBulletin 5? Don't like to complain usually but I really liked the older one better.

    I mean I can do everything (except post twitter posts apparently) that I could do before. Just liked the look and feel of the older version of the forums better.

    Also, having trouble navigating to "last unread post"...both of the little blue "fast forward buttons" take you to the LAST post in the thread, but for example if there was 20 posts before that unread, you may miss them as it skips over all of them

    Are we able to change back to see who liked your posts? It was a nice feature and you knew who was on what side of a debate. And it was neat if DanH or someone just slaughtered a post you'd see a paragraph of names liking underneath

    Does the "view first unread" button still exist? I don't notice it anywhere...and that button makes navigation 100% easier!
    Let us look into it. Please stand by.

    Love that there is a "Night Mode" type feature now. Everything else seems to be coming together as well. Great work Arse and Doc!
    Thanks to Zarar for sure.
