On the new skin, at least on mobile, links in text aren't highlighted sufficiently like they are on the old skin, makes it easy to miss them:

Also note the skewed user image at the top.

^^^^^^^^^^^^

Agreed.

Does Xenforo permit changes at this level of detail, @chris ?

Is the link still there but not highlighted? i.e., you can still click/tap on the link providing you know it's there? Or has the link been extinguished and that's why it's not highlighted?

A good example is in my reply above, whereby chris's User Name is a live link but you can barely tell (using the new skin, on Mobile and Desktop alike).

The link stands out in blue on both my laptop (IE11) and my mobile phone (browser not app).

Nope, just the same for me! :-rofl2

Maybe a small point to add:

In a forum menu, there used to be a thick line separating the 'pinned down' threads, and the normal threads.
It always helped me a lot, to glance at the first 'normal' thread, that had new content.

Now, that line is hardly any thicker than the other lines separating the threads, so I have to look much more precise to find the first 'normal' thread.
Might I suggest to use a thicker line, or a line of another colour, between the pinned-down threads and the normal threads?

Greetz,

I agree, a tiny colour difference or thicker line would help. Or you can revert to the previous skin - SatsUK Fixed or SatsUK Wide :)

1.2Mtr Polar MTG yes it has been on the arc for 35 years and is now fixed on 13 East using two pairs of rusty molegrips. Unlike me they never groan but always perform.

Well I am on SatsUK wide skin and I doubt further differentiation could be achieved, thick line present, pink background present

Yes it's the new default skin "SatsUK New" where the sticky/pinned threads blend in with the regular ones :)

Here's an example of what I mean.
SatsUK new: no pink, not a thick line.

I've just changed the background colours for sticky posts on the sats new skin, does this work better ?
