Yeah, I said it, hate the way it looks. Much harder to find various links (took me a while to find the Search function as it blends in with everything else). Everything looks the same and it makes it difficult to distinguish things.

Just posting is confusing to figure out what to click to post. This new interface is just plain bad.

I like that they're trying but really not liking it.

Also, tried to go into a thread I posted selling some items to mention the items are sold. Can't find the thread now.

How do you create a thread and set up email notification of replies now?

Not a big fan either but its mostly just the script that bothers me. I'm sure they will get the other kinks worked out. As with almost all change you aren't going to please everyone. At least its not as complicated to navigate as my other favorites like FM and DPR. I love dome of the new features. I'm sure I'll get used to it.

Maybe it'll help to try the change body text option at the bottom of the page if you haven't already.

You can't expect to immediately know how new software works right out of the box, you are expected to give it time and learn it. How about doing the same here, spend some time looking around, checking out the settings, and asking questions. Offer up specifics on what you dislike, another member may have a solution, or Pekka may take your opinion and make the changes.

Nope, but add that to the list of cool new features.

You can create threads as before when you are in the forum. However, email notification is not yet up and running. Make the suggestions. There have been many changes since this launched on Monday. Pekka is a work horse and instead of taking some time off he is really listening and trying to make changes as possible.

That and get rid of the margins in the For You Eyes Only page.

Site looks and functions GREAT!

It looks a lot better with the smallest margins to me. There was far too much white on view with the wide margins.


Is there any other skins like other forums have? I couldn't find an option anywhere.

I don't "hate" it, but the overall balance between brightness and contrast is way out of whack. And FWIW, it lacks character in a sense that it feels like I'm staring at a piece of blank notebook paper.

Does it vary that much from vBulletin POTN? I just don't see that it's ventured that far off.

Pekka has it on his list to develop a few other color alternatives, as was stated elsewhere.

True. "Narrower 1" is a definite improvement for me.
