    The pale font color and all the white really bother my old eyes. Ugh. Tried to darken my screen a bit, but it didn’t help much.

    “Reduce your font size”
    I shouldn’t be forced to figure out how to modify settings on a common device to use a web site. It should be properly designed.

    How do I reduce font size on Safari on an older iPad?

    (Yes, line spacing is a mess. The post looks nothing like it does in Edit)

    I found out how to access the ‘latest posts’, but how do access the latest post? When I click on the thread and it goes to the first page. How do I get to last page?

    Awful. You will surely notice a huge drop off in usage.

    Was this a McKinsey & Co. idea?

    I do suspect some of the slowness is that we're all on now, having waited all day. Nuts to do sw changes during the day. As it is, user traffic is so much lower at night. Lol, at 2am EST, only Hawaii and east of GMT are awake. Use that time.
    Sure, next "update," I'd meet in NYC to give feedback. Buy us lunch, lol, probably cheaper than the sweatshirt.
    My issue is all of us shouldn't be forced to intuit what the process is now, where to find things, dependent on each other for tips. WOuldn't fly in a client relationship.

    Yes, it’s summer and since my kids aren’t currently very active, my interest in providing feedback and lessons learned from going through the process has plummeted.

    I may check back in a few days.

    @notrichenough , actually, you have to click on the list on the left, on the table that says “college admissions and search” in order to find the sub forums for college life, essays, and others. That makes no sense whatsoever. If you click on the topics on the right, including “college search and selection”, and “college admissions,” none of those topics are visible. That’s totally ridiculous, wouldn’t you agree @MaineLonghorn ? How would anyone know how to find those sub forums without clicking on everything?

    Sorry to tag you Maine, I am just hoping that you somehow have a way to alert CC admin to these problems.

    The pale font color and all the white really bother my old eyes.

    There are browser extensions like Dark Reader and Dark Background Light Text that try to alter the color scheme to reduce the looking-into-a-flashlight effect, particularly when reading a mobile device in a low light environment. But they may not always guess correctly what colors to use for all web sites, so it would be better if there were at least a user setting for a dark mode (like on some mobile apps these days), if not make dark mode the default. Also, some mobile devices use less battery when most of the screen is dark compared to when most of the screen is bright.

    Yikes. I was figuring it out on my desktop but am totally confused using my iPhone or iPad. How do I get to the cafe?

    From the homepage, it's a link in the white box on the right hand side.

    I feel sad.
    As has already been noted, we know it takes time to get used to changes but I, for one, will never get used to this.
    Bye, CC. I'll miss you.

    Just testing the "reply" button.
    ETA: I may have missed this (just logged on since the change) but does anyone know what the reply button is supposed to do? I was hoping it would carry the comment to which I was replying over, if that makes any sense.

    What happened to the search and advanced search options??
    @jym626 It's still there. Click the magnifying glass to the left of your username at the top of the screen, then click the dropdown on the left.

    Well, the good news is that the annoying video just disappeared. I really hope it doesn't come back! But as everyone else has said, the giant font and all the blank white space is terrible! I'm on my laptop - Macbook Pro 13" and I can only see 1 post at a time. The whole right side of my screen - probably 1/4 of the total space is empty and white.

    nope- there is no white box on the right side. Am on my phone but didn’t see it on the computer either.
