    ^ Click on your user name at the very top, then click on "inbox" on the top left.

    Uh-oh. When you do an advanced search, say for a poster, you can't read the highlighted name. It's the dark blue over the black letters.
    Adding: hard enough on the tablet, worse on the phone.

    Rats. Now all the previously banned posters have the same new avatar. It was much more helpful when they still had the old CC avatar.

    @jym626 "previously banned"? What does that mean? Does it have something to do with the little jail bars I recall seeing on people's avatars?

    My thoughts:
    • I like the redesign in general.
    • I particularly feel that the header is a sleeker/less obnoxious look. However, it's too large, vertically speaking—it takes up too much vertical space (using Chrome on my laptop) that could be better filled with content.
    • Most of what I use CC for is the forums, and they're still quite clunky, really. Are we ever going to get an update to their architecture to make them more easily usable (e.g., being able to search for a forum name directly rather than having to scroll through the list in the advanced search)?

    If threads are closed do they disappear or are users now permitted to delete threads? I was flagged on one today that no longer seems to exist. If a thread was closed before the relaunch, we'd get a notification that we couldn't post to it, but it was still there to read. This doesn't show up in a search or in the OP's thread history either.

    Not unless the thread violates ToS @austinmshauri
    are users now permitted to delete threads?
    No
    I was flagged on one today that no longer seems to exist.
    It was deleted because it violated ToS.

    Could you please delete some of the really old information( 2012/13, etc.) on the College Information sites ? A lot of the information/ lack of relevant information is irritating. Thanks !

    Still think there's too much white space on the non-mobile forum pages.
    So much bright white is tiring my eyes quickly on the large screen.

    The magnifying glass at the top right generates a warning on Mac (Edit: "This is a non-secure form. This form will be sent in a way that is not secure. Are you sure you want to send it?"), but the one below New Discussion looks okay.

    Both magnifying glasses work fine on my Mac.
