    I wish that there was a reply box already in place, like we did have. But other than that I love the new design. :thumbsup:

    i think you may mean the quick reply box... there's some debate about this point.

    We CAN turn it on so theres a little box to quick reply but there are no smilies in there. We're looking at good ways to fix that but what we find is that people miss those smilies.

    So at the moment its turned off and the full reply box is used which has the smilies in the usual place

    What we want is a nice combination of the two :)

    I like the way the smilies are set out now. :yes:
    But... I can't read the black writing on the dark blue background, under the smilies. Would it be possible to make the background lighter? :)

    Love the Mickey and Minnie clouds. :thumbsup:

    I liked the coloured bars that we had under our avatar. They said I needed 59 more points until something or other. I was hoping it meant I had enough points for the crystal decanter and matching tumblers.

    I've no idea how to change the smiley colour but will go and look now. I've never noticed it before now- VERY annoying I agree!

    Josh

    EDIT: I cannot see an option anywhere to change it but it does look as though it is defined by the skin so I will ask on the vBulletin help files.

    Something I miss a little bit - when I first joined you were able to say thank you on a certain post in a thread. Has this gone for good now? :unsure:

    you know, I miss that too! thanks and like... both buttons were useful although I guess one would've done :lol:

    Either way I'd like that back too

    What did everyone prefer? the thanks ? or the like?

    I think there is a like button up the top but it looks like it's a like button for the whole thread rather than a certain post. Glad I'm not the only one :applaudit:
