That's my understanding too!
I assume this forum is for comments and criticisms.
This might take some getting used to. Coming from phpBB at TPF it's quite a different beast here.
The first thing I noticed is the rather sloppy layout of the board. Individual forums are more or less discernible, but once inside a forum it gets messy.
There is actually a reply button for EACH post. If you are operating under the "Linear Format" in your profile perferences (the default) then it will look like phpBB. However, since this board software supports threaded views, hitting the reply button to a certain post will associate your post to that one.
The second thing I noticed is a missing 'Reply' button at the bottom of a thread.
The "lenovo community" text at the bottom of the black banner area at the top of the screen is actually a link back to the forum index.
Going around the forum is not intuitive at all. When I am e.g. in my Profile, there is no 'Go to the Forums' button.

Esteban_LenovoThat sounds like an invitation not to be turned downFor starters, the forum seems to be programmed on a fixed dpi width, probably about 1000? I've logged in using my T43 and an X61s, with the T43 SXGA+ I have dead realestate on either side of the forum, with the X61s XGA this more or less dissapears. This dead realestate would be alot greater on alot of wide-screens. I don't want to start a display / resolution discussion, (well known at FTC), but is it / would it be possible to set the forum width to 100% instead of fixed?Andy

A few quick thoughts WRT Lithium that I'll add to as time allows.
How does the Lithium software remember what messages have been read in a thread, if it indeed does. I can see when new messages are noted in a thread, but clicking on its header doesn't take one to the newest post but rather the first post in the thread.

I've seen that several times and was having difficulty discerning its function and meaning, thanks for the explanation.
