    Oh yeah!!! You guys fixed it. Thank you so much, I was worried I'd need to hang out on the EAA forum

    Really like the "my threads" tab at the top.

    Don't see the 'edit post' option anymore? The old site had a time out on the edit of 24 hours - IIRC. That let us edit typos and grammer (and spelling :confused:) but left the history basically locked in.

    I sure can't complain. I appreciate the work the administrators do for us, especially those of us who don't send money. HBA has had several changes over the years, generating some heat, but we all get used to it and think it's the best ever until the new one comes along and we grump about how good the old one was--the one we complained about when it came out:)

    Wow, that was fast! Much better on my phone now. Any chance you can fix the word wrapping thing on the biplane forum too?

    Yep, this is going smoother than I thought it would. The look and feel Iona it on my smart phone is MUCH better than it was yesterday.
    I still haven't figured out how to put newest messages at the top of a thread (expected to find it as a setting in "my preferences", but didn't see it). I'm sure it will show up eventually.

    Ditto on thanks for fixing the sizing, I can read on my phone again! Is the button that tool you to first unread post on a thread still available? Can't find it yet...

    Thanks to all mods and admin for continuing to make HBA a great site :)

    Still there for me, but looks like just clicking on the thread title takes you to the first unread post, nice.

    Yes, what are "points" by the way? Can I use those to redeem Clecos or something?

    I can't find them again. I do remember seeing them and thinking it was going to be a replacement for "likes". IIRC they were under the avatar?

    Edit: The new site is taking shape nicely!

    Yep, it's the little icon to the left of the title. That'll take you to the first unread post. Clicking the title alone will take you to the first post in the topic.

    It's kinda tiny, but it's down at the bottom. If you're the creator, should be there. The "Report" link is there, too, if you'd like to turn yourself in for being a ne'er-do-well :p

    Working on that now. You can still donate direct using his e-mail but working on getting the forum software to act like the old addon that was installed too.
