    @notrichenough......thanks, now, I see. But gosh, I'm a 17 year veteran of this site and if I had trouble finding it, I doubt that the members who are just active on the Musical Theater Forum, are going to find it.

    A master list of all discussion forums as in the past should be readily accessible.
    AND the massive scrolling down to things is not good. Too little can be viewed in a window.

    As far as the ad/video, I count myself lucky. It was not on the side or top of my screen. I do use an Ad Blocker but I don't think that video is an ad. Once I scroll far down the page, I see there is a video but it is not on my screen unless I scroll very far down the page, so it doesn't bother me.

    I'm on a Mac laptop. Using Safari.

    I’ve only accessed the new site on my phone and it is very hard on the eyes.

    @jym626 The edit window of 15 minutes on a post still exists.

    Various ad blocking features within Chrome and within Safari do nothing to the video for me
    Chrome's built-in ad blocking only blocks ads that google considers "annoying". You need to install a separate ad blocking extension like AdBlock or AdBlock Plus or uBlock Origin.

    The white background is giving me headaches. Just turned down my monitor by 1/3 so it's not blinding. ^^^Yes, drafts are now auto-saved. One of my drafts just popped up here after I had exited and rebooted my desktop.

    Just installed adblock on chrome Whew. Goodbye horrible PR autoplay video! (It is still there, @vonlost, when I look on IE. It's not gone, unfortunately)

    @notrichenough Thank you! I installed AdBlock Plus. (I'm never sure who to trust with extensions!) The video seems to be gone! A step in the right direction. I can breathe again.

    Please tell me there’s a way to see more than 4 topics at a time on my iPad. This is ridiculous.

    My D is looking to major in CS/UX/Human Computer Interaction. She’s having field day taking notes for a “how not to do it” case study.

    Beside slower response time, which I hope will be resolved in time, this new interface displays much less information on a page, requiring too much scrolling and too many additional clicks to get to the right page. The new trend in aesthetics influenced by mobile-centric computing shouldn't come at the expense of usability.

    "Slower response time" probably means more data being sent (autoplaying video ads can consume a lot of data), so if this is "mobile-centric", it may be counter productive if each page load consumes a lot more of one's allocation of mobile data ("unlimited" data plans typically do come with a limit after which users above the limit get much slower data).

    Reduce your font size.

    I use an ad-blocking browser on my phone for this issue, and for battery life - loading all the ads and playing video will drain your phone in a hurry.

    I don't see times where posts we're made. But I am seeing the double spacing here.
