    Am I the only one that likes the nice, simplistic feel of these new forums? Quick reply is quite handy as well.

    I really do like it. Will we keep this format (Freja I think mentioned making the areas wider, which I agree with) when things are "Recovered"?

    ...

    Simplistic? There are more boxes and sub-boxes than ever on this forum.

    You want simplistic, bring back the ORIGINAL UHall. The original threaded, non date-slip version. THAT was simplistic.

    Perhaps "Simplistic" is the wrong term..

    Streamlined? Effecient?

    Call it what you want.. I like it.

    I hope they keep Vbulletin boards the just need to finish setting them up and ad some more pluggins. The other boards are very antiquated.

    I like Vbulletin as well, they do obviously need to do a great deal of customization and tweaking, these temporary forums are quite basic right now. With a fully modified and customized Vbulletin system that has all the features of the old boards, I think it will make things much easier for them to manage as opposed to the ubbthreads forum software.

    Works for me as-is, except I would like to see a feature that shows all up-to-the-minute dev team postings. This was requested in another thread.

    Well I really like this forum. I can perform Thread surgery. So we don't lose good posts without removing the bad ones. I can even merge threads!

    I like this forum too, please keep it.
    Merge threads sounds great when players keep making new threads on same subject.
    I like the forum list, the way General and Shard forums are listed as a group of links on the main forum, that would work for for the crafting forums too so it is possible to access all forums from same page.

    As I have said in other threads, just make it so we can delete our own posts and perform other basic operations that we could in the old forums, and I am in.

    I must say that I like this format a lot better. Speed if for no other reason.
