You can see when people are replying which is… different.

@Brian_9605a It doesn’t work on Microsoft Edge. I am being forced to use Chrome right now and I don’t like it.

Looks like the new forum is already improving people’s lives :stuck_out_tongue:

I get a white screen when I load it on edge with the colorful Vs on the left. I guess vex has a thing with producing white screens.

You can just message discobot yourself with start new user then.

I get the white too, but it goes away after a few seconds. The color bar is at the bottom for me.

I love the new forum. The dark theme. The good modern UI. All it is missing is oauth and passwordless login.

I see.
I just sent Discobot the following message:

start new user
[random string of characters]

and it worked fine.

Anyone know how to mark a reply as a solution?

I think that may sadly be one of the lost features with Discourse.
Hopefully the combination of people liking posts and the Summarize Topic feature can make up for it.

Edit: As @DRow mentioned:

This should be doable. The permissions are probably just misconfigured. More evidence of the feature existing:

My biggest let down is it isn’t as friendly for mobile.

There’s a progressive web app for mobile devices.

I was relieved to see that I’ve been promoted to “Basic” and can now read and post. Thank you, @DRow for this vote of confidence!
