    I can delete the draft now. I was not able to delete the drafts right away in the past. Thanks.

    Strange. After post 120 I still see it in My Draft. I clicked on it and clicked Post (I thought I forgot to post). Now I have double posts.

    I still see the problem, can’t delete this draft. Once the “Draft saved” message appears, it sticks, even after erasing the chars and closing the window. (iPhone)

    Wait, you guys are seeing a bullseye on for banned posters' icons? I'm seeing the old CC logo. This is on my PC. I don't use the phone or iPad to access CC.

    Edited to add -- I just checked on my iPhone using the old CC app and did a search for a banned poster. Her icon is the regular default blue grad cap there. Then I tried it on my phone using the Chrome browser instead of the app. Same default blue grad cap. Weird. I wonder why it's different on the PC?

    Full Site vs Mobile?
    Now for banned I see the circle and tipped paint can on FS and just the paint can on Mobile. Android.

    Frankly, the former is *not* intuitive at all.
    And why these variations? Are programmers in some locked room continuing to change things?

    Actually @CCadmin_Sorin , it's day six, and I'm frankly really not happy with the font sizes and colors. It's very ageist. It is way too difficult to see the notification numbers in the little red box. The header fonts at the top are too small and too undistinguished. I am guessing at least half of CC users are parents, and if we have college aged kids, we might well being wearing glasses. Give our old eyes a break please.

    Also, the fact that many people think the CC logo is a bullseye and spilled paint shows that the logo isn't that clear, tbh, and to also be really petty. :-) It's the letters CC, with the graduation cap point creating the C's, by being placed over a target. So clever on some level, if you think about it, but still unattractive.

    I'm sure I will get over it, but I have to wonder who at CC thought these changes were a good look.

    Never noticed the target was also a “CC”. Too subtle.

    My first thought was that, if it's a target, it refers to targeting colleges on CC. Not that it represents someone being taken out of circulation. You could add the word Banned and then leave it to folks to guess the stylistic intent. I don't know what the point is in making an uninterpretable graphic.

    You put [Xquote] someone's text [/Xquote] (ignore X. I put them here so that my response does not show as a quote).

    Embed the quote with a pair of quote/noquote tags:
    [quote]
    This is a quote
    [/quote]
    

    This gives you
    This is a quote

    Do you think the target bullseye thing was really supposed to be a "CC" because the outside, gold-colored 3/4 circle doesn't look like a "C" - the opening to the right where it is eating the diagonal blue fishing dock with a gold carp tail sticking out is too small

    @jym626 That poster had been put in jail by a moderator. After being paroled she found and used the jail bar icon as an act of defiance.

    Just going to add my annual plea to be able to bookmark a subforum, as we were able to a few years back.

    I'm missing messages/notifications - agree the font should be bigger relative to the fonts on the rest of the page.

    @CCadmin_Sorin

    Was any thought put in to banning "chance me" threads in the new version? IMO, they're problematic, they're toxic, they're deceiving, and almost everyone agrees that they are the worst part of CC.
