Non-urgent (but annoying) suggestion: Can you make the filters stay put after browsing away and coming back? For example, I always had the News sections sorted by First Post rather than Last Post and while I can still do that with a few clicks, it seems to reset between visits.

@Cyan If you scroll to the bottom of the Forums and click Groups, it lists them without pictures.

The option "Collapse Similar Threads by default" does not seem to work.

When you give a "Like" the "Like" button does not change to "Unlike".
This is normal operation from now on?

As best I can tell, the user preference for this doesn't actually work.
Assuming its "Alerts pop-up skips mark read" I saw no difference with it disabled or enabled. Is it a different option or is that one broken?
I don't know, someone was saying that in the V8 announcement thread if you have the heart to check out all the comments page... I haven't looked into it myself
You can see my preferences below. It should work the same way as before looking at that, but it doesn't:

Seems to be a bug in one of our addons.
I've applied a quick fix for now until the author can update it.
To get the old XF1 behaviour, those first two checkboxes should be unchecked (which is the default)

You can view them by clicking the arrow:

Someone made a suggestion to make it visible by default earlier, I would sort of agree.

Yes I know that, but why is that there in the first place? I thought it was fine seeing them in their entirety by default. Surely, we can have an option to universally display it without clicking the expand arrow?

Some ads don't play nice.

Also a HUGE annoyance is that when the bottom banner ad refreshes, it gets rid of the on screen keyboard. You have to then click on the text field again to bring the keyboard back up. It has happened 4 times just typing this message.

Have you considered doing a 'Support' or 'Help' or so thread prefix? That seems like it might be useful to me since people asking for help threads are fairly common and currently people just seem to be marking them 'ROM Hack' or 'Homebrew' or something not super relevant since that's what the subforums were before and there's not really anything better I guess.

On mobile when pressing on a thread that has new posts, it seems like it doesn't always take me to the new posts, sometimes going to the original post on the first page instead. I tried twice in a row on one thread (in the Switch forum fwiw), first time I went to the original post, then I went back, and second time I went to the new posts.

Not just for that reason, but also in general, please could the "Jump to new" button that exists on the desktop site also be added to the mobile site? There looks to be space for it in the same kind of area to the right of the page numbers. Some links in certain parts of the site (eg. the front page headline links iirc) always take you to the start of the thread rather than the new posts anyway, so it would be really useful to have.

Ignore function is inconsistent. When going into a thread now, I can see most ignored posts and members. Kinda defeats the purpose.
Also have to fix my icon, I guess?

Oh, and now I have to block certain sections again. GROSS

It's hidden in the ⋮ overflow menu, but yeah, it definitely seems like there'd be space for it if the page selector was left-aligned.
