Hi everyone. It's a pretty major upgrade so there will be some things to iron out in coming days. We welcome your help reporting problems. If you have any questions fire away.

The upgrade comes with a pretty nifty mobile version which you can reach with your mobile browser by going to www.SoWal.com/bb. It should automatically detect and use the mobile style.

We will be submitting iPhone and Android mobile apps this coming week so when they are approved we'll let you know. They'll be free and for now will be forum only so will be called "SoWal Forum" apps.

We're undergoing a major redesign on the main (non-forum) sections of the site which will go live in a couple of months.

Thanks for your patience and help.

I like the pics on top.
For some reason this new format makes me feel like I have more privacy.
I think because you can't see the entire screen at once.
Thank you for your diligence and expertise in operating this site- it is well needed and respected in this area.

I logged in, then hit "new posts" - and it logged me out.

I am not a huge fan of the new icons/big buttons and spaces for weird/minor stuff, and tiny buttons for what I consider "basic" functions.

Ads are bigger, fonts are not fitting properly in their designated spaces, and the spacing is all weird.

I hit the "reply" button and it thinks I am quick replying (something I never understood as I thought all replies were pretty fast.)

I'd add smilies, but they are gone.

This is in Firefox BTW.

Something I have come across is when I click on a thread the page jumps up & down. (maybe it's really excited?). I wasn't sure if it was just me (using Safari) or happening to others.

So far I kind of like the changes, they feel easy on the eyes. The one thing I miss is how big or distinct the thread name use to be.

Super excited about the Android app though! Thanks Kurt!!!

Can you tell me which version of firefox? There are a few spacing issues - can you send me a screenshot? The reply system is a little different. Ad sizes haven't changed. Smilies are gone?
