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.

I really hope it goes back to the look the forum has had over the past year or so

It won't, sorry. Actually, it can't. The old theme won't work with the upgraded forum software.

I'm not against changes but I must say that the new "temporary" look made me rub my eyes a few times this morning.  :o  Hopefully you'll be able to find a good style that isn't too far from the old one (which was the best forum layout I've ever seen!) and to get rid of the spammers.

Now that I look at it - I think it's the fonts that bother me the most atm.

The list of threads which you've posted on which has replies seems to have disappeared, will that be returning? I quite like that feature.

Also, this blue background with white text when typing out a reply is making my dyslexic brain cry.

And I would make one other suggestion, pick a theme which has lines (that you can see) between the thread topics, lines reduce the chaotic appearance for squidgy brains like mine. :)

Those links are in the upper right next to your avatar.

And the font size 16 or something when typing - I hate to scroll down after writing just few lines. (Sorry for being picky, but after doing graphic design for some years - I can not avoid getting annoyed by these things!)

Wow... what a completely different forum we have oursleves here  :D

I really loved the old one and it felt like home. The new (hopefully temporary) one seems a bit bright and big for my liking. Hopefully everything will get sorted soon with a better layout  :)

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.

I'm not real fond of the white on blue in the quick post block, it reminds me of the old DOS days. :D

But I really like that you don't see the posts of people on your ignore list. I can deal with anything else just to have that one thing.

I froze in my seat for a whole minute! I didn't know what to do.. First I thought my internet was just screwing with me and didn't want to load the page..

And to be honest..... I don't think I like this new design :(? But I guess that will turn when I get more used to it!
