I don't mind it, it just does seem like a skin though. Some new functionality though like the @ feature, so @megadamp will tag you

If its too bright for you you can chose one of two actions. Adjust your monitor and put on a cool pair of shades. Or scroll to the very very bottom of the page and look to the left for the skin chooser. Legacy will be the skin the site had yesterday.

The new "Last Post" column (third from right on the thread list page) is really annoying. There is a lot of text in a narrow column and so the text wraps and each thread then take up a lot of vertical screen space. This just means there's a lot less info on the screen.

The smart thing to do would be to make the thread title column a lot narrower - there is so much "white space" in the middle of the screen - and then a lot more info could be displayed on screen.

Presently in the garage :
- 2005 ML350 Special Edition (purch. 04/'13)
- 2004 ML350 Luxury (purch. 04/'13)
- 2001 ML55 AMG (purch. 12/'13)
- 1976 280SL D-Jet (purch. 05/'92)
No longer in the garage :
- 2001 ML430 AMG Sports Package (sold 11/'13)
- 2000 ML320 Luxury (sold 6/'13)

Seems to me someone was trying to fix a problem that didn't exist. Was anyone complaining about the old format?

I switched back to legacy where I will stay

I do realize that I haven't subscribed to Benzworld so perhaps those of us who are riding for "free" have no right to complain :-)

Go literaly to the end of the page. On the left you will see a small rectangular box saying Mercedes benz forum. Click on it then select legacy
Legacy is much better.
