Did the AutoGuide app get killed in the upgrade?

Also, the web view needs to ignore the signature if a user posts twice on the same page. Some people have really long sign ( @bimmerule , @TheShafro - I'm looking at you )

I like being able to tag people though, nice convention there...

I really like the mention feature, saves a lot of hassle.

However, sometimes I only know the first few letters of someone's handle and some people have spaces or underscores in their usernames that I forget about. Is it possible to get some sort of suggestion list right after you type the "@" symbol, just like how Facebook does it? That'd be great.

What is hard about it, might be able to change fonts, coloring, or size.

Most everything is under Tools>QuickLinks to clean up the look.

Thanks for checking it out and the feedback,
Jeff
The white background it to bright where in the legacy setting it is a light blue and much less harsh. Also, the reply area is much too small for what its purpose is.


The "Tools" menu is completely useless. If what you are looking for is not visible when you open the tool menu, if you scroll down the menu and the menu tab go off the visible page.


Please do not think that I am just being a "stick in the mud" but improvements and to actually improve the functionality and usability and I believe that finding the faults is the best way to be sure that this remains the best car forum on the interwebs. Thank you.

Thank you Bimmerule and Shafro for taking the attention away from mine.

I like it!

But why no E60 in the middle of the E39 and F10 on the top of the page ?!

Also will it be possible to finally put pics in our signatures or custom avatars?

Please note that the user cannot always drag and drop a file for uploading:

- When using IE10 in Metro mode, I cannot drag and drop stuff from desktop to the Metro browser.

- Drag and drop works in Chrome for me, but even here it is not always as convenient as being able to specify a filepath (which could already be stored on the clipboard, or the file is so deep inside folders that it is an annoyance to access it externally). I strongly feel we still need that 'Upload button'.

I'm not sure how useful the 'Recent Discussions' panel on the right side will be if we cannot access the last post directly.




At the moment we just have links for the first page of each post and the profile of the last user who posted.
