Things are a bit slow to download/render.  I hope that will be fixed as the new servers are replicated/tuned/whatever.

I see a few people gripinig that the avatars aren't being instantly approved for them.

Give it some time folks - the new forums just got started.

And remember that the avatar approval process is manual - someone has to look over the images and approve them.

The default font size in posts is way too small.  WAAAY too small.  And there doesn't seem to be any way to adjust it as a practical matter.  If someone posts at 10 points in this software, it comes out much less than 10/72 inch.  And there is no excuse for allowing posts to be at 8 points.

What does it mean that the question is "possibly answered"?  That people have issues?  This item isn't a question, it's a place to collect issues.  There are no answers, and probably will be no fixes for many of the issues.

when you make a thread you have the option to make it a question in which case you as the OP get to award points to people. If you don't want to see those yellow buttons then i suggest that you deselect that option as it's on by default(it's just beneath the thread name)

Would it be possible to have my name display as "Michael D Sullivan" which is my chosen "screen name" here and was also my user name on the old forum?  The screen name displays properly up top, where my avatar is greeted, "Welcome, Michael D Sullivan", but in the forum postings my middle initial is omitted.

You can add your initial without affecting your account in other ways by clicking the account link at the top of the page. Just add it to the first name field.

If people what their comments seen, and more likely answered, the main comments section that the forum staff and developers are watching is at http://forums.adobe.com/community/general/forum_comments

I know, I know.  I've already said this.

Making the font larger to suit ones needs is sometimes necessary.  The real problem is the fact that the width of the posting area is fixed.

Solution:  Let the USER decide the width which is appropriate, even if that means adjusting the width of the browser window.  In other words, give the us more control.

I'm not on the forums team - I'm a user of the forums just like you are.

I just want a record of the problems I see.
