Not sure if a feature, or a bug,
If I reply to a post listed in the 'new thread' view, after posting and refreshing the new threads, the thread I just replied to is no longer there, nor is it further down the list. It is just gone from the list even if I look the the timestamps of posted threads.
It seems counter-intuitive, but maybe it's a feature?

Bear with me. It's a bit confusing.

If you click on "What's new" or "New posts" at the top you will see a list of posts that are NEW and UNREAD to you personally. So in that list it makes sense that as soon as you click a post or reply to a post it will no longer show in the "New posts" list because it's no longer new to you. Someone else will need to post in that thread again before it will show up again for you in the "New posts" list.

However, if you don't want to only see UNREAD posts, then click the X next to "Show only: Unread". This will clear that filter and you'll see all new posts, regardless of whether you've seen them recently or not.

That "Show only: Unread" is one of a few filters you can set. If you look to the right (when viewing "New Posts") you'll see a Filters dropdown. Click that and you can set other filters, like "threads that you've started" or "watched content". If you always want the "New posts" list to behave a certain way for you, then make your selections, then click "Save as default" at the bottom. (you can always change later)

Did it not save old settings for ignore members? I had a few that it no longer ignores.

As you said, if you hover over or left click once on a person's avatar you'll see some info. There's more info there than it might seem at first glance.

From top to bottom:
- Join date
- Last seen (last activity date)
- Messages - click the number to get a list of their posts/threads
- Gallery - click the number to see their photo gallery
- Garage items - click the number to see their garage
- Start Conversation - new name for PM

Then if you want to really dive deep click their avatar again. This takes you to their Profile Page. It has a lot of the same info, just displayed in more detail. But I think you're looking for the "About" tab on the far right. (light blue bar. I need to tone down that color a bit). The "About" tab has some additional info like location, state, Bronco info, etc. (keep in mind all that is optional, so not everyone has chosen to fill it in)

I understand where you're coming from. I'm the same way. But once you start poking around I think you'll find very little has actually changed. And what has changed is for the better.

The old software hit it's end of life years ago. It was becoming a maintenance and security risk. So there really was no option to just leave everything as it was.

I agree. I hate change, and most of them I've lived through have been nightmares. Which is why this one was a very pleasant surprise. After getting used to a couple of small changes that made things "better" but "new" and not automatic for my typing fingers, so far I'm happily impressed with the changes.
And good timing for me too, I had just recently out of necessity started using my phone for some off-time access. What a HUGE improvement the changes were for phone access!
So for now I'm living happily with the new stuff while still getting used to a few things.
