    I kind of liked the old format. Not complaining, its just I would rather learn something new for my pond and not have to figure out something new to get the info.

    I simply love the new format and I'm even an old (or should I say aged to perfection) dog who's not supposed to like new tricks :D

    OK, OK...I'm starting to get this whole thing figured out, and like most of the features. It'll take a few days, though, I wasn't brought up with computers like some of you kids! ( I kept a few slide rules in case these computers are just a passing fad.) John Oh, da.. now it won't let me use the smiley button!

    Does a row of smilies appear below the post box when you click the main smilie button? If not, I'll take a look in to it :)

    The phone part is going to get even better - perhaps even an app for direct uploading of images :D

    Ian; the smilies popped up, but that's as far as it went. However, when I replied to a different thread a few minutes later, everything worked. :claphands: John

    Oooh! If you get a phone app, can it be windows phone compatible too! :) How do we enlarge profile pics so that we can see them better? Don't remember who, but someone had a pond pic as theirs and I tried to click on it to get a good look, and couldn't. Wondered if I just haven't figured out the trick. Also, not sure if this is the right place for requests, but as newbie, it would be awesome if there was a forum specifically for winterizing! I know winter is still a ways off, but I've been looking ahead to see what I will need to do to prepare.

    ok, I'm not complaining but I liked the thanks button and how many thanks you got. Is that coming back? By having about 10% thanks I always thought i was doing my share to help others.

    Once you get the hang of this new format, it grows on you.

    I'm sure there will be a way to get this working on a Windows phone :). It will take few weeks before I'm ready to go ahead with the mobile stuff, but I'll try and make it work with as many devices as possible. About the profile pic, I'm not sure if there is a way to enlarge it - as it's just more of an avatar. However, the gallery allows resizing of any pics uploaded - so hopefully the pic was also uploaded there.

    A winterizing section is an interesting idea, I'll have a word with the mods about this and see what the consensus is.

    As Addy said, the thanks button has gone but has been replaced by something similar. There have been times when someone posts something really useful, but a "thanks" doesn't seem like quite the appropriate button - so the "like" button is a little more general. It's good to know that you're keen on helping other users :).

    The winterizing forum would keep all the threads that are going to pop up in one spot, maybe make ie easier for someone to find an answer.
