    I can't find where this may have already been asked since the IPB 3 transition. Can we possibly get back underlined links as we had in IPB 2 please? Just two examples of where it's a tad hard to spot a clickable link:

    Even with them being a different colour and an underline appearing when you hover your mouse over them? I must admit I'd never noticed the misssing underline before....!

    Maybe it's the skin, Leif, but the "different color" is a very light blue which is hard to spot (for my eyes) and yes, the underline shows up when I hover, but ONLY if I happen to realize that I should hover. Just seems that it would be nice if ALL links were underlined, but maybe that's too much trouble...

    What? There's no app for human levitation?

    I think we probably need some alternate skins to optimize the Lounge for various mobile devices. Or perhaps Apple will develop an alternate metaphor for floating a mouse over an element.

    Long ago, there was a time when men cursed and beat on the ground with sticks. It was called witchcraft.
    Today it is called golf!
