..."more Details" links to information saying:
Brand and site maintenance - 26 September 2018Owing to planned maintenance, this site will be unavailable overnight on 26 September, including the early hours of 27 September. We are doing two pieces of work:
Refreshing the design to reflect the National Autistic Society's new brand.Updating the software to a new version. The main benefit to this should be improvements to the listing of messages in threads, and the flagging of new messages. We want to implement this in order to help with problems that users have reported

... いま, From myself: I begin this Thread because that is one of the things which I myself used to be most useful for, upon this Forum... But Now things are different and so I Post less (!). Also, However, not everyone notices the Main NAS message, and, also, WebPM says that "As ever, your feedback after the update is welcome." upon the following Thread:
...Lastly from me, this next Link is actually the latest Thread for Posting "Strange" Things... but not many people remembered it...
...That Thread contains many Links to other Threads which are for specific problems (Older Errors, Notifications, Ideas, Spam, Copybots, etc.).
In closing: All in all, Thanks NAS - especially Mr.WebPM. And Good Luck to all.
Many thanks for all the comments. I'm hoping to address some of the issues, so I'll try to summarise, because they appear in different messages in this thread:
I'll comment separately on colours.
Slow loading and buttons so small I keep hitting the wrong one, bubble telling me I'm disconnected, random crashes, painful colour scheme, doesn't pick up my dark theme. My cache clears automatically on closing firefox but still slow. Seriiusly hard to use on mobile. Buttons so small I keep reporting myself as abusive when I try to touch the 'edit' button. Think the software might need replacing with proper multi-device interfaces? It really needs updating?
But obvs thanks for providing it at all and I do understand resource constraints.
