The ability to delete a post goes away once someone has replied to the thread after you. It's always worked this way.
Ok, thanks. I guess that's just never been an issue in the past for me.

Can we disable the mobile auto-load on scroll feature? It's very, very buggy. I just viewed a thread with the last post repeated 10 times because of it and while it's loading the last post over and over the screen keeps jumping around.

Also on mobile, it still doesn't auto zoom to 100% width, perhaps only 80% making things harder to read than it should. It looks to me that the toolbar is causing that issue if I had to guess based on how the page renders.

The site is really fast so far this morning.
Is it on the new server, or is it just a good time of day?

And PLEASE give us the ability to get non-mobile desktop version on a mobile device.
Not everyone with a mobile device either wants, or needs, the mobile interface.

Every web page should give the desktop version when you select it in the menu.

Or at least give an easy to select link to it.

This poor new version does NEITHER!

+1, I would prefer to view the full site in its normal state. Mobile versions of any site should be an added convenience, not a forced default.
I noticed you're still working with polymers.

Apologies in advance if I should have started a new thread, but this does seem to be another disadvantage of the new format: When "subforums" are listed at the top level, a "tooltip" was previously available when one hovered over the subforum link that would indicate whether that subforum contains "unread topics" or not. The tooltip still pops up, but it seems to always claim "no unread posts" even when there actually are many. I noticed this when curiosity finally overcame me as to why the "Pacific USA" subforum of the "Local/Regional Discussions" page never indicated any new posts, even two weeks into the "new format" era.

I joined just before the change over. This layout and color scheme is terribly boring.

Forced mobile themes also drive me away. I bought a smart phone so I could view a webpage properly, not view the webpage as though it was ported to a 10 year old Motorola flip phone.
