I haven't found it much different apart from I am now on O/T and won't bother with BT.
The only thing I am not keen on is the colours, it's so washed out and I find it a bit difficult to read the thread titles and the font is small. Oh and I hate having to tick the email replies button off, would have preferred it the other way around!
Anyone got anything constructive to add?

I don't click off the email reply and not getting any emails! On the main settings page I unclicked it, maybe that's why?
I'm actually really pleased with how iPhone friendly it is. I press 'return' and get a new line ather than having to type in <[p]}>' and various othe obscure codes hah!

I agree about the colour and font size. I've also been having problems logging in from a pc but I've managed to get in through a link from Hitched.
30/11/2012 at 10:33
I quite like it actually. I'm finding i'm spending more time of OT rather than BT, but it's easily disguisable at work.

Ooo off to check my settings! x

I don't like the colour, and I don't like how it keeps logging me out.
Apart from that, i'm slowly getting used to it, but still prefer Hitched.

There's a few little things that I feel would be useful over here (some they're looking into, but I don't want to keep bothering Sarah with my suggestions ) but generally it's good and getting lots of old and new people out of the woodwork which is always a good thing! Still don't like the name, but hey ho.

I still prefer hitched but this is 'smoother'. Again I will probably be sticking to OT although I never really went on OT on hitched. Hate the colours, very washed out. Hate the fact I have to scroll back up to the top of the page. Dont like the fact I can't use smilies unless I go into advanced reply. But it runs a lot better than hitched in terms of errors, speed etc
30/11/2012 at 10:59
oh and still hate the flaming names although I can see the difficulty they had trying to find another.
30/11/2012 at 11:37
Wonder if Sarah is reading this?
30/11/2012 at 11:40
I think its alright. don't care about colours name or font size (remind me in a years time when i need glasses !) its much more mobile friendly but i do wish we had emoticons in quick reply.

There's a few things which I think could be improved (and I'm sure will be over time) but I'm actually enjoying it more than Hitched at the moment - easier to reply, both on laptop and phone, I love having recent threads altogether on the forums front page as it means I'm answering stuff from both BT & OT, and it's brought loads of people out of the woodwork which means it's far busier here than Hitched has been for ages. I like the look too, it's different from the PP and will take time to get used to but it's far cleaner and there's no stupid task bar cluttering up the bottom of my screen.
30/11/2012 at 11:45
oh yes the silly bar at the bottom of hitched was really annoying
30/11/2012 at 11:47
Actually one thing annoying me is not being able to start a new post. im on galaxy s2 java enabled and can reply to threads but not start them. i can open new thread box type title but then nothing, no text box via html or when i tap in box nothing. any ideas?
30/11/2012 at 11:53
i can do it on an s3 with java enabled.
30/11/2012 at 11:57
I'm on S2 with no problems but I've no idea if java is on/off
30/11/2012 at 12:04
I like it so far! It looks modern and easy to use from an iPhone x
30/11/2012 at 12:09
Can you start a post purplestar?
30/11/2012 at 12:12
Yup I did one yesterday on baby talk about getting periods whilst pregnant
30/11/2012 at 12:14
Hmmm. Did you do anything different or simply new post then title then type in box? Im not getting a keypad
