I miss the old layout. It was more 'ancient' looking (I mean that in a good way), but it was uniquely atu2. y' know. This new layout feels like many a other forums.

First gmail changes, now this? Arrrgh!  :'( Even the smilies are not as iconic!

But as a happy user of this free service, I'll deal ;)

The new Look should only be temporary. The new forum software did not get along with the old theme, but I expect that will be fixed soon.

Thanks Admin! Our regular lives are full of changes, ya know? Some things should stay a perpetual constant, like U2's longevity and atu2.com forum :)

Thanks!

Good grief! They go down and give me withdrawals then they come back all . . . different. So glad it's temporary!

Don't know if you've noticed, but in the last few days there's been an onslaught of spamm on the forum. A lot of the spam is generated by these spambot programs, and the forum software had to be updated to recognize these spammers. I'd say that only a small percentage of them would actually get through to post their spam in the forum threads, but in the last 2 days alone, there's been about 60 to 75 fake accounts that were created. So the mods have been busy banning/deleting these fake accounts.
And BTW, we totally appreciate when you guys report spam to us because it helps us to act on it immediately.

Wow. I had no idea it had gotten that bad. Thanks to all of you for working your tails off to make sure I didn't notice. Good show!

You do a great job of squashing the spam quickly!!!

The layout seems a bit strange, but if it stays like this I'll be fine with it.

Yeah, the navigation is still the same so it wouldn't be that hard to adjust to the cosmetics.

You may see a lot of different looks soon. Trying to either re-install the old theme or find a new one we can use.
