Very hard for me to read. And so much wasted screen space.

No dedicated iOS app sucks

Sites like this should have, like, porn or somethin'

Yep, a bit step backwards. Annoyed also that my mobile access doesn't work anymore either. Haven't tried tapatalk yet.

I actually like it. From what I understand, new mobile apps are forthcoming. Right now I'm using it on my phone anyhow.

Mobile site is being worked on, and now the site is making more money.

Stop complaining.

I have always liked Vbulletin better. Love their interface. This new interface looks bland, harder to read, and unprofessional. Hate the Flag button right below each post. Oh well, nothing I can do about it.

Very plain, generic looking and not very intuitive. "Ho hum and a YAWN "

I really dislike the drop down menus and lack of a marker for posts you've posted in. There are other design aspects I'm not keen on but they don't affect useability for me.

Edit: Or maybe the markers from before just didn't carry over? This thread icon is different for me now.

This is the feature that I miss the most.
The new marker simply shows threads which you have viewed, not the ones where you have posted.
I checked through settings & preferences to see if there is an option to enable it but didn't find anything.

Every forum I'm on after changes to the look and feel the majority dislike the change.
Most of the time there is no going back, so after awhile people adapt and except the change.

The problem with this type of jump menu is it’s impossible to categorize sections clearly making for easier navigation, a script/css type menu would help.
Listening to members and making small feature changes does help with the transition.

We'll get used to it.

I don't like when the OP post pics but they are smooshed be because of the ads on the right side of the page.

Don't like it either, but the ads are necessary for any website. So I can make peace with that.
And of course in time we will all get used to it, whether we like it or not.
In the meantime, users do have the right to b!tc# about features that detract from the experience.

yuck!...
some will already have a brain tumor by the time you get used to the new interface...
agree it's really a step backwards... smile.gif

Actually, it is a recommendation or an order. A complaint includes descriptive language about a topic or item which is disliked and is not an active phrase or statement. His statement was an active statement.

Not a big fan of the new layout. I've always preferred VBulletin over every other forum software. Change doesn't always mean for the better.

I definitely HATED the new site change yesterday. I took the time to learn where my subscriptions were hidden and how to navigate, but I still like the old sites navigation a lot more. That said, the thumbs up option on posts is nice. I hated Facebook's timeline the first time I saw it, but that's growing on me, so hopefully this will as well.
post #27 of 358
Not a huge fan, but I guess I'll have to deal with it..

For the ads.. Site owners do need to help make some sort of money to run the site so I understand it, but you can always run ad blocker with your browser. They have been around for a while..

I actually like it. Its pretty usable, which is important.

Not like what Microsoft did to the Green Button. I posted on TGB before coming here last summer. After they destroyed that site I quit using it.
post #29 of 358
I really hate how I can't hit one button to find out where people have replied to threads I have written in.

Now I can't find that. only a full subscription list...

It's not the format, it's the content that matters.
