I don't mind it. It's about time they upgrade to a newer version of vBulletin, anyways.

I don't mind it. It's just now I need to relearn how to post links and pics. Other than that it's all good. The boards had been the same for the last four years so I welcome the change. Well thats all for now GOoD JOURNEY my fellow schmoes.

The new format is fine EXCEPT the laughable ten character rule. That needs to be fixed or it's all downhill...

It's ok. I'll have to get used to it like I do whenever they introduce something new. I mean, it's not that hard to use.

I hate it. It's ugly, looks massively outdated, it's allowing sigs and the threads are less comfortable to read what with the poster info on top, rather than to the side, of their posts. I'm not going to stop posting or anything, and I'm sure I'll get used to this look but it's still a huge downgrade in the board for me.

I haven't quite gotten the hang of it, but there's nothing wrong with a little change. Once they change it we'll be saying the exact same thing about the new format.

That's why there's this fun little option:

I don't mind it, it'll take a little while to get used to the change in look since I got so used to the old one but the extra features make it worthwhile IMO.

I don't mind. Didn't our info used to be at the top a long time back?

I think it's dope and you are just a negative person.

I dig it.
But one question: how do you accept cookies?
If I don't accept cookies, I have to keep logging in.

Other than the electronic snack situation, it's pretty cool.

Depends on what browser you use, if you have a firewall it's possible that's denying cookies too.

With Firefox it's Tools/Options/Privacy and tick "Accept cookies from sites"
Pretty much exactly the same thing with IE.

Hope that helps.

I definitely agree. I hate this new set up. I don't feel comfortable roaming the boards anymore. It all looks way too damn mechanical and too much like the other forums on the web. Horrible decision in changing the forums. Not to mention the horror boards are plain now. I'm definitely EXTREMELY disappointed with their decision to do this because the board was fine. BOOOO!!!

But we already had all those smileys. Only less colorful.

I don't like it at all. The older version was far better, and easier to navigate/use and read. But after 4 years of this, I'm sure it'll be easier to get used to and use.

Then why come to the rant forum?

Anyway, I think it's not bad and it has more options, but I still prefer the old style.

I really wanna know why some people are just "registered users" and some kept their Schmo titles...I liked those titles and was oddly proud each time I moved up. I was looking forward to, years from now, being a King of All Schmoes...now I'm just a registered user? What happened?

The user titles are apparently going to be fixed soon.

I thought someone just fucked with my profile, actually. This kind of sucks. It was just all fitted together better the old way. The new thread icons make everything space out weird. In the actual threads it isn't so bad. A lot of scrolling, but less clicking.

the old adage goes if it's not broken don't fix it. The old style worked who cared how long it had been in use. I don't like the new style either and truly doubt in 4 years time I will like it. I think I will just learn to tolerate it better.
