    I don't like round avatars. No space savings overall, yet the avatar is smaller. What's the point? To mimic Chrome's latest look?

    I don't entirely agree - I have no problem with the new buttons, and the board seems just a little quicker.
    However, I would not be unhappy with a "compact" mode, especially in the forums. Right now, each post's header uses an unconscionable amount of dead space.

    Cutting! 🙂 . You may have noticed that over the years the reds used on the site have become darker...partly to avoid this.

    As part of the update, I did introduce a new 'brand' - more on that at a later date - but you can use it now with a provisional design if you are not keen on red.

    Keep in mind some colors and some graphics may change.

    I like it.

    My only reservation is probably related more to my tablet. But, the Analyze board is a bit smaller. When it was larger than the main board, I used it to aid diminishing vision.

    Other than that, I am very pleased with the changes. Keep up the great work!

    Do post your niggles though - now is the time to get things fixed if you are unhappy.

    Very minor probably, but on the game page, the 'go to next waiting game' arrow icon could stand to be larger. It almost looks like it doesn't belong there as it currently is.

    There is plenty of open space in that area, and it would look more prominent and right if it was the same height as the 'submit move' button! Maybe it's color should turn green at the same moment when the 'submit move' button is clicked, sort of like a traffic light!

    (This is as seen on a laptop.)

    The Analysis Board (I believe) used to pop up in a separate window on my desktop computer, now it replaces the main window. That means I can now longer arrange the two windows to see both the Analysis Board and my personal notes window at the same time. (I can't see anything else on the main window at the same time as the analysis board either, but personal notes is perhaps the main concern.)

    My only observation that I consider detrimental is with the games waiting info.Before,when the plus sign appeared at the side of the games waiting it told me that there had been a recent move in one of my waiting games.As I like to play live(ish) I could then go back to my inbox and move in that game ignoring the game I was looking at in analysis mode.This doesn't happen now.For example it's just changed whilst I am typing this from 13 to 12+ while neither I or an opponent has moved.

    My niggles are mostly cosmetic.

    For example, I don't mind the circular avatars but don't really like the plain colored circles (with initials) for those without an avatar. (Preferred the previous silhouettes).

    Also not keen on the use of yellow/orange to highlight 'edits' or the thin strip of color on the post one is responding to.

    But like I say, only niggles.
