New look is great!

As for bugs: my new messages flag still shows 1, yet there are no new messages. Perhaps you can manually reset that?

Thanks for the reminder. Yep, I'll check that out today and hopefully fix that with tonight's updates.

Quick question: Would you use a feature that lets you opt in to automatically receiving email notifications any time someone replies to any topic you start or post on? Then you wouldn't need to remember to subscribe to each individual topic.

Jason, I'm noticing when doing minor edits to my posts that the changes often don't show up after hitting the "Post" button.  I never had this issue before.  Big edits seem to stick immediately, but smaller edits sometimes need multiple refreshes to see.  I'm pretty sure my edits are happening, I'm just not seeing the smaller ones in a timely fashion.  Currently using Chrome as my browser.

Thanks. I may have been over aggressive in caching forum posts.  I'll take a look at this tonight too.

If only my day job didn't get in the way of building this site :)

dewster, my response was actually terribly slow. I see you asked for linking to posts a year ago!  Shame on me for taking so long.

Jason, thank you for adding post linking and for generally keeping TW going, I imagine it's a heck of a lot of work!

You are all very welcome. It is definitely a labor of love. My hope is that I can focus more on content now and less on website tech. I got into this crazy end because I love the instrument, but the redesign has taken so much time that I've barely been able to think about content and organization.  Given the rise of forums like Facebook groups, I'm planning to pivot the site more towards builders and players over the next year. Of course, I welcome any contributions and articles from our members too!

I fixed at least one bug in the private message system tonight that might help this, but please let me know if it's still wrong.

"Profile images can now be 256x256  -Jason"

Resizing the old images to new  256x256 format (enlargement style) is not good idea
Amethyste, please reload your photo!

 The phantom message count of 1 has gone at last. Many thanks! :-)
