LOVE the yellow background for new posts in a thread!

You've just fixed one of my biggest problems with the new interface. Kudos! And thanks!

  1. I agree it's nice.

    Chowhound Team, where are site improvements such as this announced? (or have they not been announced?).

    At this point I'm afraid to add my site improvement suggestions because I haven't read thru the 100+ posts and they might be on your todo list already.

    1. I agree. The shading on the new posts as well as the "# of replies" box on the threads is very helpful.

      Thanks for listening to the community.

        OMG !!! ... thank you for posting this to bring it to everyone's atttention.

        I really would not have noticed quickly since IIRC there was random shading before.

        Thank you, thank you, thank you Chowhound Tech Team ... yes, yes, oh baby, yeeees.

      2. Ditto. I want to say also that I'm really impressed by the responsiveness of the Chowhound Team -- obviously all our complaints and suggestions are being read and acted upon whenever possible. It is a little disconcerting when I spot a new-to-me feature ... I think "was that always there, or did they just add it?" Like the link under the number of replies that takes you to the new replies -- was that always there? It would be nice if the tech team could tack a list of the new features as they're added to the top of this board.

          User Help might be a good place to announce these features, which is where the Chowhound Team has been posting tips for navigating the boards.

            As long as the stuff gets changed I'm happy. One of the zillion posters usually catches it and posts.

            That being said, I'd like to suggest again that somewhere along the line there is another link in the Site Site Specific section that only Chowhound could post to.

            That would contain all the Quick Tips and Software Change announcements that would be quick to find. The good info posted by the chowhound team gets lost in all the posters questions and comments.

        2. Thanks! Glad you all like it.

          1. Yes! I noticed this immediately when I logged in today! Now my brain and eyes don't hurt as guys are making the site more and more addictive.
