    Can't get used to new format

    I know, change is inevitable. Just have to voice my personal experience, I just don't like the look and feel of the new format, whichever color or font it is.

    The result? I'm viewing and posting less. Much less viewing.

    Too bad we don't have a choice to restore the old format.

    I'm curious what you don't like about it?

    With the Winter Retro theme I think it's pretty similar to the way it was. There can't really be a choice to go back to the old format because this is a newer version of the forum software. It's like getting a new version of Windows; you can do things to make it look similar to the previous version, but it'll never be quite the same... Eventually you adapt...

    If there's something specific you don't like it may be possible to tweak it, but we can never go back.

    Prolly too much trouble to tweak it, I guess its just the icons. Funny thing is I can't remember exactly how it used to look, all I can remember is it was different and my brain can't wrap itself around the new display. I guess its just gonna take time, ala "And with your spirit"

    Thanks for the feedback skidork... keep updated as I have a new design coming this week. I have some screenshots of how it looked before as well and I will try to adjust it some more. The retro themes are supposed to match as closely as possible how the site looked before.

    i have to side with skidork here. perhaps it is just the "all change is bad" mentality but i do find it harder to view the site. something about the font selection or perhaps the font size, it find it just harder to read, kind of like nothing stands out and everything is just jumbled together.

    i think the pics at top also contribute to it.

    once i'm in a thread it is OK but the main page listing the sub forrums and even the listing (when viewing NEW) just seems worse.


    on a different note - bugs the shit out of me that the "new posts" button (which is almost all i use for navigation) seems to move based on what screen you are on.
    shit happens, wear a helmet.

    I would move the random pics to the bottom of the main page.

    You can collapse the Featured Photos section, but unfortunately it loads pictures first and then collapses the section once the page is done loading.

    Thanks again Bvibert. I really need to take a class on how to use a forum I guess.
