I would humbly encourage users to please quote the post you are responding to, if at least for the first few weeks. It makes the thread easier to read. Otherwise people have to scroll back to the other person’s post to figure out what the response is responding to. To quote a post, click the cloud or bubble or whatever - 1st icon when you hit and open reply in someone’s post. (example above; I am not answering this post)
Also I am surprised at how critical people are - before we have even used this for a day or two. I think this negativity will lessen considerably in a few weeks. Just hold judgment and give it some time. I am a little worried that by far the most interesting threads are about the changes to the site. That could be an even bigger concern… in the long run for sure.
Last point - I would like a light green or blue background option. Not white or black. Something you could change from time to time. I personally love figuring this whole thing out. Once that is accomplished…who knows.
