The Trailboss would like to keep upgrade problem threads focused on a single problem so if you have a different one, please start a new thread.
My problem is that the extra user info added to each post makes it harder to read the message, especially when you have several short messages close together. I'd rather see the info moved to the first column, under the poster's name.

Yes, after looking at this for a while I agree, it's clutter, better that that stuff is on the left.

Well, I think it's all visual clutter in either location - but I actually think it looks slightly better in the new location, under the body of the post.
Several people have noted that the new software seems slower - I wonder how much of this is due to the added info we're looking up for everyone? It probably shouldn't be very significant, but it might be...

Of course the extra user info also makes it easier to identify impersonators :roll: .
