    I like it! Very nice and certainly easier to read and easier on the eyes. The thing is however, I lost my email subscription notifications for the threads I am watching and participating within. Will that all return to normal or do I need to resubscribe?

    Thanks,
    Null

    You will need to resubscribe to the threads and forums that interest you.

    I like it too, its a good design, cheerful and bright. It makes you feel welcome to be here. The old look was getting boring and looked like the contents of a 1950s filing cabinet (no offence IS if you're reading).

    Nice to have you new admins here too, I like the new touch and flair you have added. Good job!

    While I quite like the new design, I was thinking that the line-height is too small (that is, the spacing between each line of text). When reading a long post I find it rather uncomfortable. Does anyone else notice this, or is it just me?

    Nice format. Shame it required the removal of core members.

    Thanks. We will be adding some extra tools for the LaTeX editor soon, too.

    No members were "removed" for any reason. An update had to come to TSF eventually. We were running on software from 2004 and it just wasn't safe.

    Intriguing. What kind of new tools?

    There will soon be a quick commands dropdown but it is still under development.

    Ah, so its an inbuilt command box for various functions, symbols etc? That should be very useful- and save time from having to type out lines of TeX coding!

    It's been awhile since being in the forum, and in my old age, I can't remember the old format. The new format has good contrast, but I'd like to see the small button text and icon's increased, so my old eyes can read and see them better. And yes!, I do need new eye glasses!

    Hi, Old Sage. Can't you just increase your font size? (Hold the CTRL button and hit +)
