As do all changes!

 

This is the default interface from the software provider, I had nothing to do with the design. People using tablets may find this easier to use.

 

One change in the software: You may get e-mail alerts when new posts are made in topics you're following, when you get a personal message, or other events.

 

If you do not want to get e-mail alerts

 

1. Click on your name in the top right corner of any page.

 

2. Click on Account Settings.

 

3. On your Account Settings page, on the right-hand side of the page, click on Notification Settings.

 

4. Choose Notification List if you don't want e-mail notifications.

The text is a lot lighter, making it hard to read. I found that enlarging the font can be helpful.
