Just for info, the top right corner of every message has a "bookmark" icon now.

If there's a thread or guide I find particular useful. I've bookmarked the first message in it. It then gives you the option to add a message (description for yourself) and labels so you can search for it again later.

You can then access it from your profile bookmarks tab.

If you click the cog, you can get a link to it so you can share it without having to navigate away from the thread your replying to.

Just tested it - it's just the like option - not the other ones
Wonder if it could be updated to reflect all but the 2 negative responses?



Bit of proper feedback though. When I come to check for updates I usually go to the 'show all' link. Makes it nice and easy if I have like 10 updates.

However in both colour modes, its not as clear as the old version which are unread. I know there is a colour difference, but its a bit to subtle.

On the old software it would have an asterisk next to any new ones.

Could the colour difference be bigger, or a symbol added. Maybe a Seat S for light mode and a Cupra logo for dark mode?

OK so I'd not checked properly the reactions work as follows in relation to your like count

Regarding the styling of new posts - yes the colour is a bit too subtle. Will see what can be done.

I particularly like the cupra dark mode. Not sure if it is just my PC that doesn't support the file type, but the smilies look like this for me...

Signed up not long ago , so i didn't have much time to get used to the old interface in order to compare them. But from the first impressions , it seems user friendly and more eye-candy than the old one. So my best wishes to everyone involved and many thanks for providing such a space for us!!

Glad you like it - yes the smilies need sorting (see 2nd post of known issues) - I've moved them just now so they at least don't come up first.

Cheers,

Scott
If I'm honest, those other emoji's were looking a bit dated and not sad to see them go.

Would be happy with a slightly expanded set of the ones that are already working.

Besides aren't the emojis used on iOS, WhatsApp,all linked to the same thing. Could they be linked to that too? Or is that mo money and mo problems...

Looking to have the old emoji's reinstated for old posts so they don't have gobbly gook in them, but not allow them to be added to new posts. They won't look good in dark mode though as they don't have transparent backgrounds/edges.

Yes on device stuff should work I think, not tested it yet.
