What the F happen to the forum?

Okay, okay....I feel like I am some odd sight now....

Is this progression or digression?

Now to see if I can figure this out....

But I suppose one good point, the smileys are better...

I still don't like the format...

Wonder if this will cause people to leave, I feel like it now...

It's no big deal. Just cosmetic. By next week, you'll have forgotten what the old style looks like.

I'm thinking that in part it's supposed to be more mobile friendly. Higher contrast, bigger buttons, etc.

Why would you want to leave? If you prefer the original look of the site after taking a short test drive of the new format you can scroll to the bottom and look for "LEGACY" in the drop down that lets you choose the skin you want to view the forum in. The site is still here, same people, same rules, same spirit.


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