I would prefer Security News be changed to Technology News, otherwise I wont be able to post as many stories there.

Otherwise everything is working just fine for me so far.

That is not a good idea.
"Security News" and "Technology News" are two different things and need to be separated.
A section for "Technology News" might be a good idea, but then it should be created elsewhere in the forum.

Why? Security and technology as was posted on the original board overlapped almost transparently. For the greater part, both merged into the one aspect. Deciding which one to use led to duplicate postings.
To have two, will again raise a confusion about where to post a topic relating to problems that are based in hardware that could have security consequences.

You either want as much input as you can get, or you don't. No two ways about it tbh.....

Well, there were some misplaced posts in the old forum... ;) :)

I think you missed my point, i meant that renaming "Security News" to "Technology News" would be a bad idea.
If we need a section for "Technology News" we should create it.

I agree, sometimes (but not always...) technology news might be related to security, but then you post under "Security News".
If it has nothing to do with security then you post under "Technology News",
like fx. about a new ultralight laptop, a superfast CPU, or a superfast harddisk form company X etc.

I´m sorry, I don´t understand your mumbling about "input".....

The pagenumber-icons at the lower left corner are to small.
It´s hard to click on the right icon.
I suggest big numbered icons, like what we have on TWCF, as an example take a look at this page:
http://forum.thewindowsclub.com/technology-news/index2.html

But we should have 2 icons for "Next" and "Previous" instead of "First" and "Last".
Because if you want to switch page it´s probably the next or previous page you want to see, not the first or last...

With such a menu it´s still easy to get to the first or last page.
If you look carefully you will see a dropdown-menu where it says "Page 2 of 28", so it´s easy to input 1 or 28 to get to the first or last page.

What is Good and Bad or Buggy at new CoU?

Tell us what you think so we can make it better.

So far I thing font need to be a little bigger. The Quote font is real small for me.

Wow lots of font colors and the GLOW is Cool

I may be ignorant for this question, but shouldn't this website be setup with https to help secure user's data in the transmission of things?

I got XP Pro here.

All the post are hard to read because the text is too small and the Quotes in the replies are even harder to read.
They are very close to the right size.

The problem here is using XP! While I loved XP, Windows 7 is a far superior OS and is supported until 2020. Furthermore, if your hardware can support Windows 7, Windows 10 is shaping up to be the next big leap that will ultimately replace Windows 7 as the current "King" of Microsoft's OS.

I've already done a lot of testing with compatibility and a lot of older software works without issue on Windows 10. This is mostly because it supports IE11 with the same level of support that Windows 7, 8.1 did. As far as security and privacy is concerned, there's a lot of excess hype around Windows 10's privacy that I'd deem over inflated. Windows 10 has a lot of mobility features you'd expect to see on a cell phone or a tablet but people haven't realized it's Microsoft's goal to have a united OS going forward for all devices including the internet of things. All of these options can be disabled and the system doesn't opt you into anything sensitive automatically.

As far as an enterprise level is concerned, I think this will be a big win for Microsoft as 10 builds upon the controls people are familiar with Group Policy, Active Directory Domain Services, etc.

Alternatively, you could always install Chrome if you're using IE, and do check your display properties for your screen fonts, but I don't see this as a bug CoU has to worry about ;)

Steven is one to know if site should be https.

Will I got Dell Vostro 410

2.40 gigahertz Intel Core2 Quad
64 kilobyte primary memory cache
4096 kilobyte secondary memory cache
64-bit ready

ATI Radeon HD 3650

I use Firefox or Pale Moon

I made fonts bigger on my screen and they are okay here but the fonts in the Quotes are hard to see right for me.

There are several "Child Boards" listed on CoU, fx. under Malware Removal & Help Centers :
"Child Boards: Malware Removal - Malware Removal Forums, Sysnative Forums - Microsoft Support | BSOD | Malware Removal | Windows Update, LandzDown - Analysis and Malware Removal, Malwarebytes - Malware Removal, Bleeping Computer - Security Forum, Wilders Security Forums"

But, those "boards" are not forum-sections on CoU, they are links to external forums (and to Microsoft).
Of course it´s nothing wrong with that, it´s an excellent idea, but we should not use the term "Child Boards",
because that implies that it´s sections on CoU.

If you click on one of those links, suddenly you are on another forum / webbsite !?  ???

I suggest using another terminology that clearly shows that this is links to external forums and webbsites.
Maybe "Other Forums" or "External Webbsites" etc.

The terminology "Child Boards" is built in to the SMF software.  I added a forum description, which may make it clearer:  "Referrals to Malware Removal and Microsoft Help Forums".

A bit better, but it´s still not clear that it means external webbsites.
It can still be (mis)-interpreted as sections on CoU....

Perhaps "Referrals to external webbsites, Malware Removal and Microsoft Help Forums"

or "Referrals to other webbsites, Malware Removal and Microsoft Help Forums" would be better ?
