    I was thinking about that as well. That was a much more dramatic change than this one.

    I am drawin' a blank (FWIW).

    Circa 2005 right here on our beloved Forum. Hint: started as a fun rebellion against another format change with background color similar to this.

    Guess I stumped the Doc?

    I've changed my mind. I'm really enjoying this new format. It just takes some getting used to. The rest of you should stop complaining and switch to using a computer.

    If I say Fake News will I get banned??

    I think we've all been banned and this is forum hell, created just for us to share our misery.

    As evidence in support of @nooshinjohn's hypothesis, consider the following:
    At the top of the forum's page is a "polk" logo. Clicking upon that logo...

    leads right back to the forum.

    It does take you back for Forum Home, though.
    Like the early days of web design where you'd put links in as many places as you could just to make it clicky and interactive. Like GeoCities?

    Ugh...for me, saving a 'draft' of a comment/post did not work. I was preparing a rather involved mhardy-type reply with pics/images, but it didn't save it, so I'm not sure if starting over would even work.

    EDIT: Utilizing the 'Preview' option with images/pics included is not working.

    . Ok, including/attaching pics works, but not for draft/preview purposes.

    Does Polk Audio own this site, if not who does?

    Hey Carl, the Friday evening crowd shows up tomorrow. Back in the day things could get way more spirited around sundown/Happy Hour on Fridays.

    Woohoo!!

    Enjoy the ride. B)

    Hi @CarlJacobson_POLK ,

    The bookmark "ribbon" graphic is too near the page number graphics of multi-page threads. When trying to go to a specific page it's a crap shoot if that's going to happen or you're setting a bookmark.

    Thanks for your help with the Forum!

    Noted, are you experiencing this on mobile, desktop or both?

    If you could hook me up with a screenshot, that would help as well.

    Thanks,

    I use desktop pretty much exclusively. Here's what it looks like on Chrome:

    In mobile format, at least for iOS, the page numbers do not show up until the thread is opened, so there is no problem with the bookmark icon being too close to the page numbers.
