Plus column: I like the text size and color options above the typing area.

The typing area is decent, I can live with that.

The toggle for light/dark is good, if only the resulting light/dark wasn't so terrible.

The dropdown arrow for menu options is good.

Minus:
The emoticons are atrocious.

I hate the emoticons.

The editing buttons are too large, they should be smaller than the default text.

Too much scrolling, everything is too large.

Did I mention that the emoticons suck?

It's too cutesy and child-looking.

With a childish format, you'll get childish behaviors, teenage type hormones, people not thinking clearly and maturely. This is a site for discussing topics among adults, not teenagers and we don't have to keep up with what's in style for the teenagers. Think of the mindset you want here. Do you want a bunch of teenyboppers trying to have cyber sex or do you want adults discussing topics?

Like most changes, there will be outcry and then soon enough everyone will adapt.


how do I see new topics as they come up in order of thread creation time?.
I think this is it.

Clicking on that icon gives me a 404...

Is this still in Beta?


Not Found

The requested URL /forum/new_topics.php was not found on this server.

Additionally, a 404 Not Found error was encountered while trying to use an ErrorDocument to handle the request.
Well I believe it's a 24 hour beta to anyone who's a member. I'm getting some 404 in other areas as well but they're still testing. EDIT: Oh look everything is back to normal.

oh, just link it to your facebook, twitter, eharmony, topix or disneyland account. That seems to be what's emulated (I would insert a emoticon but with the blue jokes they are, it would only detract)

I dont like the layout at all.. I really dont understand why internal improvements cant be made without doing a complete external overhaul.

Yeah thanks figured it out...just a little weary of clicking buttons that don't offer explanation before hand.

Back to normal.....thank God.

Please leave it like this until you do something about the look of the new one. Topics side by side is great, hte new look single file list is not good at all. emoticons fit for 2 year olds.

Couldn't give an EFF on stars/flags. Word to your forefathers! Check this out though and lemme know what you think.

Stupid or on target? You be the judge.

My biggest peeve is that I really LIKED that ribbon on the bottom to get access to a side-by-side, quick overview look of not just the newest topics coming in as they were posted, but the top threads of the day, as well.

Removing that is the biggest downer to me. Everything else is... dealable. Mostly. Can't stand the new emoticons, though. With my eyesight as bad as it is, they're all a blur and I can't discern between them very well without squinting in a big way.
