During the last weekend, CSC has been migrated to a new infrastructure, and there are already some strong opinions about some of its features (or lack thereof). Being a long-time member of CSC, I do not think that dismissive comments about the new infrastructure being plain wrong and putting back the previous version of CSC is a constructive feedback. The team behind CSC had its very good reasons to move to this new infrastructure, and naturally, when our common ways of doing things change, we all feel uncomfortable, me included. But I also know that in IT, things actually can be improved and the CSC team is listening very closely to our opinions and wishes. Just making this immense transition from one infrastructure to another in the course of a single weekend is a feat of IT engineering in itself. So let's simply tell them what we miss. The more agreement and support any constructive feedback gets, the easier it is for the CSC team to justify the improvement to the infrastructure.
So without any hard feelings, these are my comments regarding the new CSC site:
If anyone agrees/disagrees, or has his/her own set of thoughts and suggestion - please bring them along!
Solved! Go to Solution.
I agree with all your comments. You miss the big ticket item of no email notifications, though.
Plus here's another one: I followed the link from the RSS feed for this article, and I got the message saying I'd posted the message! See attached.
In the same way I am also seeing the Correct Answer button for this thread even though I have not started it :)
I have to say Peter voiced most of my issues quite better than I did myself on a previous thread. The layout of the different views whether it was inside the discussion or the list of discussion of a certain section of CSC needs some work done to make it more easy on the eyes to read.
Are you still seeing the "Correct Answer" button even if you aren't the author? We haven't been able to reproduce this.

I am not using them so I did not know there is an issue with them, too. I am spammed enough even without subscribing for e-mail notifications ;)

Well, you surely wanted to :-P
In addition to what Peter suggested, I found that VIP Space disappeared from Additional Community and also I was not able to send a private message to my followers.
Just my two cents (for now :) )
We really appreciate the feedback. Let me address each of comments/suggestions inline below:
Really appreciate your feedback and hope to have the issues you have identified resolved soon.
The font color change is a great improvement! Thanks for your continued work on the CSC fixes and for your great support of CSC in general :)
