    You can also post what you like, dislike, or suggestions for the new forums.

    Not sure. There's things that are better and things I dislike a bit. I'm going to wait a few weeks before deciding properly.

    Still getting used to it to be fair. Can't really judge yet.

    I am however missing the "new posts" option. I know there is the "Whats new" button, but I wish it showed what section the post is found in. It does say under the title but this could do with being a bit bigger. Before it was much easier to see what section a post was made in.

    Apart from that all seems ok. Not liking the white text on black much though.

    ;) I voted as what was the question again ? :)

    So far so good, but yeh still getting used to it, and learning it.
    Some things I like with this new stuff more, some things I may miss, too soon to tell, of the old forums, that we had. And on this particular computer, ie my older one, on DIAL UP, it goes lots faster, lickity split faster, with this new set up yeh even on old school dial up.
    I haven't tried it on my speedier connected highspeed wifi thingies, on my WIN 7 yet. :)

    If you scroll all the way down to the bottom of any page, there is a link to change themes. See:

    So far I like it. It seems a lot more robust. Since it's such new software, I'm sure the team will be working on all the bells and whistles as they pop-up or get added.

    The skin is ugly as hell. I hate this everything is dark crap... it's like the internet is turning into a pretentious vampire larp group.

    Switched the theme, a bit better. Don't like avatars next to posts.
