There is an option to change the color scheme of the site. The default is the light skin. If you scroll down to the bottom of the site, you will see a little link that says "6th Gen Light". It will give you a pop up and options to change between light and dark. I love the dark look. Smooth and clean and not so bright in your eyes.

So question:

Before there was a button / link that took us directly to our User Control Panel. Where is that now?

The very first thing I like to do when I visit all the forums I'm a member of is go to my User CP so that I can view my subscribed threads and see if any of them have any new posts.

Also, I just realized by attempting to post the above....The ALT+S keyboard shortcut to posting a post does not work? I now have to tab over to the "post reply" button.

Top right just below the header image, you will see your username. Click on that and it will bring down a drop down with all the options.

I saw that, but that's not quite what I'm looking for. Attached is the page I'm used to seeing on all my forums (but this now after this update, was available with the old version) and the page that would have all my subscribed threads with new posts. In addition, somewhere along the top (DA happens to have it in the top right hand corner) is a link specifically for "User CP".

the drop down menu here is essentially your user cp. if you click any one of the options, it'll take you to a page that looks more like the vbulletin user cp you're used to.

Fast way to see your subscribed threads is to click on the 'Watched Threads' tab.

The "Watched Thread" link is close, but not quite like subscribed threads. When I opened it just now after you mentioned it, it didn't bring up this thread even though there were two new posts since I posted.

I dont use watched threads to much but I believe you have to click on watch thread in the thread itself to have it added to your watch thread section.

When I open my watched threads it shows all the threads I have subscribed to in the past, so I thought that would work. But I guess going forward you have to click on Watch Thread as Shaggy said.

Rep system is gone it seems? Replaced by points.
