Things you miss from the old CD


#22

Being able to remain logged in near indefinitely.


#23

I miss literally everything because I’m a sentimental son of a gun.


#24

I went ahead and added that to my Full Name. Will see if that is needed but I like knowing the teams and roles too.


#25

Nobody misses that haha


#26

Well I guess full names aren’t shown, at least on my mobile view, so not much of a solution.


#27

I think what is shown is the contents of the AKA field, which isn’t editable…


#28

Dark theme definitely helps, I still think the old CD colors look good though:


#29

Team numbers, load speed, information density, color theme.


#30

Is there no way to edit custom user titles?


#31

Spotlight and going into spotlight rabbit holes from 2004.


#33

Can we petition for “Classic CD” to be a theme option?
How long until someone makes a plug-in?


#34

As odd as it sounds… I kind of miss the “go to last post” being broken. I got so used to scrolling as soon as I opened a thread… Going to have to retrain my muscle memory!


#35

oh no.


#36

I feel like im just missing a lot. Karthik is now just a “K” and theres nothing about who he is, which just seems way to empty for my liking.


#37

I miss a lot of things about CD-Media:

  • A stream of actual pictures & whitepapers on the left-hand side, that was separate from the noise on the right-hand side.

  • Now it’s all jumbled together, without thumbnails of the photos.

  • In the thread the images seem to be [conformed to an arbitrary size, even if the original was not(pic: 1885 ILITE's Robot for 2018).


#39

I aspire to be more than a letter to you! :rofl:


#40

I miss the signatures too seems like a downgrade.


#41

I always thought that signatures added too much clutter, but thinking back, it was a good way of identifying people. Everyone looks the same now.


#42

To me old CD felt rustic but fully functional. I am sure we will get used to it and I bet the back end is way cleaner but I miss all the info the top off each post provided.


#43

This is coming in a couple days …
