This format is terrible.

Thumbs down

This is tonal merger at it's finest -- a sea of grays that blend together visually. The previous format was more effective on many levels... I sure hope some of these changes will be revisited based on members' comments.

Why so many Google ads everywhere? Very distracting.

Yeah, that was one thing I really hated about the old software.

On balance, I think this is coming along pretty good, for us only being 14 hours, or whatever, into it.

I go to a bunch of v-bulletin sites. v-b is powerful software, but graphics/style have never been its strong suits, IMO. I think we're stuck w. v-b, since IB apparently owns it on an in-house basis, but it will look better with tweaking. Just graphically, it will probably never look as good as the old SW, but the trade off is it has far more power.

We still have it. It's at the bottom right of the page.

Seems like a few things are being fixed. I now see the quick reply box, the page count on the bottom and its working much faster.

To those guys that are calling everyone whiners.....you are whining to, just about something different. Its just that people get used to things a cirtain way, then when its changed you have to get used to it all over again. I don't mind the new format as long as its fast and we can still navigate like before.

Hey Wiley - When does that non-compete expire????

This is just another in a long series of insults.

Liked it better the other way, now it looks like every other forum...........

The other servers must have been to much $$$$ and harder for the new guys to run.

Thank you Sir , may I have another !

Hold the ctrl key down while moving your mouse wheel forward and backward to adjust the font size.
This board will take a little getting used to but I believe will be able to do more than the old one. I'm on other mb that use vbulletin and once you get used to it, I think you'll like it.

Don't like it at all. Hopefully I'll get used to it, if not, I'll move on to another site that isn't as much trouble to navigate. They definitely need to address the picture situation in the boats for sale section. This sucks...

Everyone wants to be a freaking art director - I go through this every time we design a new label and someone doesn't like the font while another is cranky about the PMS color used for the sub-hed.

BFD; enough whining about the redesign already. Who cares what it looks like? This is a useful and entertaining forum - be happy it exists at all and move on to other issues.

It's beautious.

The changes are coming along...they have the quick reply now so you don't have to click something first, and even with the small fonts, it's easier to read now that the reading panes are white.....the fonts could still stand to be one point bigger.

I wonder if Jersus knows that Wiley would not have made stupid changes like this

I wonder if Jersus knows that changes to new board formats are usually tested and better developed before roll outs?

I wonder if Jersus knows referring to yourself in the third person is a psychological way of making yourself feel like there's someone with you, even if it is only yourself with a sticky magazine.

I wonder if Jersus knows that if you refer to yourself in the third person, you shouldn't be upset if we make fun of that third person behind your back.

Just kidding with a take off on your third person joking, Jersus. No offense intended.

But back to the point. Had Wiley upgraded the software, it would not have been done with such apparent incompetence, and we would have been much better informed. Wiley actually cares about the members of this forum and worked very hard to ensure we all had a nice time here. I do not believe he would have made radical, non-value added, irresponsible changes like this.
