    Well done with the new design, I would however like the colors to be a bit darker.

    Two nags for me:

    1. Option to display posts in threads in either ascending order or descending order (Same as Steve Magnussen's earlier comment)

    2. Option to display PM's either in conversation mode or the traditional way as "Inbox" and "Sent" (I personally detest Conversation mode)

    Just a general comment, it seems to take more mouse clicks to accomplish what you want to do with the new software than the old.

    I've got one
    Where can I set back the PM's to the "traditional way"?

    Where can I furthermore find the overview of my attachments and have the media types been updated with the new design e.g. "xls" to "xlsx" ect?

    Well, the "New Ferrari Chat" is pretty much unreadable. The fonts are too small and the quotes in light blue are barely visible. Using the Old Style, "Old Ferrari Chat" setting is better, but the "New Posts" list at the right of the screen wastes screen space because as you scroll down the threads the actual messages are displayed over about 60% of the screen width. :(

    I like it. Thank you for the hard work and (apparently) smooth transition. I know how tough and stressful these I.T. migrations are, and looks like you nailed it so far.

    the forum the post is in has been moved to the left side of the screen and its cumbersome finding - on the old fchat the forum the post was in had its own column so was easy to screen new posts by sub forum

    Yah well... not a fan. Sorry Rob. A step backwards.

    Harder to navigate, takes farther to scroll down, TMI, pictures are smaller, the right side of the screen is wasted in stuff we don't need, some buttons (like pages) too small, the swear filter is way over sensitive, more difficult to post multiple pictures and harder to find other people's posts quickly.

    And the ads are...

    Even in classic mode when it's blue its more readable but still way over complicated looking.

    Just being honest.

    as I already have written in an other thread:

    the new design looks better than before the old one.

    but when I click now on a thread there appears then always the first post, even I read all posts and refresh. only when I click in the top of thread the page number then I can see the last page.

    would be good if you could modify this also?

    I'm sure you guys will help sort this out. I'll be in China probably offline the next 2 weeks.

    I already can't really figure out the photo size (smaller) and how to see them all automatically rather than clicking individually. I can't figure out how to unbold all the threads I have already seen.

    On the iPad, the full width only takes up 2/3 the screen unless you zoom in.

    I can't figure out how to zoom and crop an upload avatar on my iPad... it just crops it for me from the center without giving me a choice to move it or zoom.

    It's not clear which threads each sponsor is "sponsoring." It looks like a whole block when that is not the case...

    Thanks for any help.

    Sorry if this was already discussed:

    If you want the old style of Fchat:

    1. Go to
    2. The first option on the top in middle says Style. Drop down box and select "Ferrarichat - Old"
    3. Click save changes.

    It's similar to the old style, but nicer in my opinion. Buttons are larger and there's less empty space. It's better than the default new one. I like the upgrade. Thanks, Rob!

    Yeah that's the first thing I did but it's still hard to navigate and find the threads and posts. It is like everything is backwards and clumsy

    When viewing watched threads, a list of all threads is displayed, but only those threads with unread posts. Would like to see all threads listed and then bold those with unread posts.

    Also, when viewing watched threads, there is not an option to go directly to the last post in the thread. One can go to the last page, but not directly to the last post. This option is available in the normal viewing of all forums.

    Hello everyone,

    A mate of mine has some troubles logging in after the update and has asked me to write on this topic in order to get some help. He enters his credentials and as a reply he gets the following message: ''The requested user 'NürScud' could not be found.'' Any help would be greatly appreciated!
