I welcome change, but when, in the process, something that was highly useful goes missing, it makes me very cranky.

One of the issues I'm referring to is the feature on the old forum when a thread I would post on was highlighted to enable me to quickly find it again later to resume my participation. I would love to have that back. Is that at all possible?

And my second issue is with the "likes". It's gratifying to see the tally accumulate in my little window on the page, but there's no way, that I've discovered, to see what the "likes" relate to - what thread did it occur on and by whom? The old ovations gave me this helpful information.

I hate to sound like an old fuddy-duddy, but the old BYC was a beautiful and very functional web site, well designed and user friendly. This new site is leaving me out in the cold. I'm holding out the hope it's still a work in progress and these things can be resolved to make the new site as good as or even better than the old.

I also hate change, and learning new tools is hard for me, so give it a chance and you might find that many of the new features are very nice to have.
