I agree with Kav,
I am very happy with the new-look forum, although I cannot see the relevance of the two lines of little boxes, whatever they are, that come up when you reply.  Somebody said that the coloured script was not available nor necessary but I see it is there.  I was using it to address people I replied to but somebody said it was like shouting at them, so I stopped.  I now use it only to insert the colours of the Ukrainian flag when I reply to Dima.
I see you have fixed a fault of not offering suggestions to incorrect spelling that someone mentioned.

It is only a minor point but I do not like the fact that both the old forum and this new one try to get us to use American spelling (For example, underling the word "colour" when I use the English and Australian etc. spelling.

Terry, you have done well. It is something that very few of us could do. As Billy Bunter, the Owl of the Third Remove, (you are probably too young to know what I am referring to but ask Graham or Shirley) might say "The Goodfullness is Terrific."
If you can set up a replacement for Channel 40, it will be as near to perfect as you can get.

I have my shoulder to the wheel,
my nose to the grindstone,
I've put my best foot forward,
I've put my back into it,
I'm gritting my teeth,

Now I find I can't do any work in this position!

I'm still finding the grey on grey lacks contrast.  It might be caused by the way the grey is faded in on the edges.
Which in turn means I'm having trouble seeing the pages.

From a keystroke user model,  having to press 2 buttons to make a reply is frustrating. 
Replying is the most common action undertaken on a forum. It should be the easiest action to complete.     Funny....   Now it appears to have changed. Not sure what is happening

Also, the 'subscribe button' is defaulted to subscribe. It should be the other way around.

Is there a right click spell check/suggestion?

Getting used to it, have found when clicking on blank user name box my details appear, then logged in, I never log out. Should I? Thanks for running the forum, It is a frequent look. David.

The print and contrast seem to be a bone of contention. It is still almost unreadable on a phone or tablet for old eyes. The Forum Latest faded red column is particularly bad.

The whole point of any written page is communication, artistic appearance, style or uniqueness come dead last in the consideration.

How much better is the "Replied etc" line above each post. Why can't the posts be as clear? I think getting rid of the grey or darkening the print might be a good start.

The dud features and functions are being bowled over by Terry very promptly and the workability of the site is as good as ever (except remember log in)). I imagine he actually has a life outside the HVCV Forum and appreciate his time.

Here is a similar forum style (I have no idea what it is about) , still with the grey back ground but look how much clearer the print is.

I have not had the issue with being logged out, except that my phone and computer occasionally boot each other off the forum.
I have had no issues with the new version. Windows / Firefox.

Thanks, Jarrod.
