I understand “spread to zoom,” however the gist of the original post was looking for suggestions how to make the UI more user friendly.

So one tap rather than spread to zoom and then tap would be more user friendly. Also when you zoom in you often have to drag the area over to see the area you need zoomed. So that could be 3 actions instead of 1.

Thank you for the positive feedback. That's one of the biggest reason we made a change was to meet all the google mobile requirements. There is updated php, code, fonts, etc etc that go into all this.

Thank you for the specific feedback! We will send to the developer and see if we can make this better!

The new format has a dark green back round color for the quote box which is great. But.......when a link is included in the quoted comment, the link does not show up because it is also a darkish green in color.

Is there any way to make the color of the link a brighter color so it shows up in the quoted comment against the dark green back round?
Thanks.

I’ve been using the new format since it started. I haven’t experienced the problem you describe.
I do not have a dark green background color for the quote box.
Maybe you have a problem with the color settings on the devices you’re using.

Colors are difficult to calibrate because of individual device settings. I use a dark theme on my browsers and the TOTV backgrounds are charcoal and khaki.

It always take time to adjust to user interface changes, but I've gradually settled into the new format. Thanks to the mods for their hard work keeping the site updated!

Default Identify OP through thread

It would be helpful if the OP were somehow identified throughout a thread. Perhaps a different color, or just “OP” on their subsequent posts. I’ve seen this elsewhere and it’s very helpful, particularly on long threads. Thanks.

How about a notification when someone quotes you and a link to that reply? Or is there a way that happens now?

Just scroll down. There will be a section offering the alternative.
