Yup.  I will have to relearn all my reflexive actions.

 

Also, I keep getting a popup box about getting notifications every time I go to a new page.  And I'm not sure where to get the WISYWIG text input.

The default settings had circular avatars, different colors, and also instead of list format, a Grid presentation.

Interesting.  I will need to figure the tweaks out.

Currently individual posts are wasting a lot of space, apparently due to the personal info.  Reaperbryan's is bad.  Sorry Bryan

Okay, seeing if there is some simple way of getting WISYWIG.

Gee, Mom, what's this do?

Huh.  There are ways to insert code.  Most of the old emoticons are here.

Can you remove formatting? yes.

There's a box at the bottom of the page... Same basic place as in the old layout. Click in there and it brings up the WYSIWYG editor.

Not thrilled with jumping 2 lines every time I hit enter. I'm picky about my spacing. 
Can get around it using shift+enter if it bothers you.

For sigs: I'm hoping it's just part of the functionality that hasn't finished migrating.

Indeed. LOTS of wasted space, at least on the desktop version.

Ooh, there is no longer a "Like" button on my own posts.  No more embarrassing self-liking accidents!

Easy enough to modify. I can make it shorter than this even, if I need to.

One of the new features included a "reputation" system, which included Reddit style up-voting/down-voting, and then members were ranked not only by post count but also by the sum of positive votes and negative votes their posts had garnered. 

We opted to stick to the old "likes" system, and not introduce that.
