New Or Old and Why?

I know the @administrator has been shutting down alot of these threads and maybe it will happen here to but was hoping we could keep it civil and provide suggestions rather than saying the site looks like this or like that, hopefully he can keep this thread open and it will benefit both him and the members.

Personally I like the new look, faster for sure and love the garage feature as well as tagging people in the thread. This is a great feature since sometimes we know exactly who has knowledge with a certain problem so he/she can easily be tagged into the conversation.

Still would like the heart to be changed when liking a post and that the vehicle would still show up under our avatar, otherwise very happy.

We all want the site to be better so lets add constructive criticism even if you currently don't like the new look. Maybe with suggestions the admins can tweak the new site to most everyones liking.

If you don't like the site scroll all the way down and select Benzworld Legacy from the dropdown menu to go back in time.

We are just trying to keep all the change requests and bug reports in one place. New skin or old skin it don't matter, they are both here for you to use and continue to enjoy the same site you have always enjoyed only you have more than one option for how it looks. We have a few of us working on this site and making changes that will make the new skin better as some that have made the old skin better too.

If you find browser related issues or functionality issues I need help with getting all that info gathered together so we can work on it all.


If you have any suggestions or feedback, please PM me.

I haven't had enough time to play around here, but so far I have no issues with the new site. I would agree with Pete on the hearts...maybe it can be a wrench or something...

Just take some getting used to. I do like that you can preview the last post before you go in as Pete says. Should be a Mercedes symbol instead of a heart.

Money can't buy happiness, but it's a lot more comfortable to cry in a Mercedes than on a bicycle.

I haven't played with it much but i'll get used to it. But it seems the text is harder to read for me anyway..not as much contrast and blurry? Might just be me, anyone else?

@Whitey047 I agree with you it needs to have a bigger contrast from the background, but I imagine this to be a small tweak. One thing I have noticed is when you type in the quick reply box the text is smaller than the thread posts and a bit too small IMO.

I usually use an 8 inch Windows tablet when reading the site. The new version is unreadable. The font is so small I can't even read it with my glasses on. Is there a way to change the font?

@loooney2ns scroll all the way to the bottom of any page, on the bottom left there is a drop down box menu then choose legacy to have the old look.
