Re the editing,  I still have the edit box, but I only see it on the thread which I started. On other threads, I see no such feature in the same location.

Also, it seems to be impossible for me to edit a subsequent post further down this thread, as the edit box is only seen if I scroll back to the very  top of the tread, and off the comment box which I was trying to  amend. 

Something seems to have changed on the overall display, background is light grey rather than the previous white.

To my eyes, anyway, it is an improvement.

Ah, yes, Prop Strike. I have the Edit button on the thread I started on ED908, but it seems to allow me only to edit the first post. Presumably this is what Key are working on.

I echo Prop Strike's and Bobkat's findings regarding the edit-function.

So far only the title or the first message of the threadstarter can be edited by the "first poster".

 

Deleting the original thread "The new layout" was bad form 😒 ,

but I understand behind the scenes things are indeed being worked on.  

 

It has been mentioned before, but I would like to have the "preview-function" back. Plus of course the "embed-function" for Youtube-clips.

A German forum can now even embed Facebook-videos. ❗️

Puzzled.  Now on a different PC at home, the background colour is white again, making my earlier comment about it looking grey seem a bit nuts......

Is anybody bothered any more? The damage has been done and the once vibrant community has scattered to the four winds. As the Duxford Diary and Elvington  Meteor threads have shown, “once it’s gone; it’s gone”

Understandable comments, jeepman. But there are faithful followers who are still trying to get this to work.

Let us hope that my off-line dialogue with jamesm may have instilled into Key the need for urgent action and communication.

I sent a personal e-mail to Khalem a week ago, just to see if he's still alive. No response.
