Changes to Design on Wednesday, Dec 12

Hello everyone,

Here are the changes we made today in response to your feedback about the new design.

1. We made the "To the Top" button take you all the way to the top of the page, not just to the initial post.

2. We increased the number of discussions on the category page to 25, up from 20 on mobile as well as desktop.

3. We reduced the font size and padding of the discussion listings on the category page.

4. We changed the username at the upper righthand corner of the page to be in the capcase that users chose instead of all caps. We also changed the username capcase at the top of discussions, where it says, "Latest Less Than A Minute Ago by Mudaba" e.g.

5. Fixed issues with fonts looking too small in the text input fields on Windows and some Firefox browsers.

6. Fixed a bug on the mobile site that was affecting the edit button.

    6. Don't use mobile CH except on my Kindle (and haven't tried it after the re-design), so hadn't yet affected me.

    As you might imagine, the fix to #5 is most welcome for me. Thanks.

        1. any chance the "reply to OP" button will return?

          and why only 25 threads per page? was 50 really too cluttered?
