    Hey what happened to the forum...?
    Not only it is worst and less bright then the old design but even it doesn't feature smileys....

    I'm sad with this...

    Found 'em. They're in the long "Post Reply", but not in Quick Reply.

    Well, I guess that's it then. At least for now. Maybe we'll be able to import some more somehow. We'll have to run it by horse I guess.

    Strange... The tags probably work but the pictures aren't installed (or associated yet)...
    Between "Here is a try:" and ":lol:", there is several smiley tags inserted....

    Actually im really disliking the new forum style, too complex...the feature for showing where new posts are isnt nearly apparent enough, there's too much wasted space at the sides, the avatar area and username at the side of the posts is too large and the posting area too small, theres only 15 posts to each page, clicking the main title for a thread takes you to the first page and not the last, and theres generally too much going on on screen at once...If I was a person looking to join id be put off entirely with this new set-up...It seemed ok looking at the beta but in practise is far inferior to the old style...

    I'm having to relearn everything. Like right now I'm trying to figure out how to insert attachments to PM's. I can't see how at the moment.

    CC, you can change the number of posts per page and other options in the edit options menu in your user control panel.

    It is not too bad for me as I use other forums which use this board...

    I figured that out just now which makes it slightly better, but the vital things still suck...some forums are saying theres new posts when there arent, and some are saying there are when there isnt...

    Really disliking this style...

    yes i've noticed the new post notifications are that noticable and often wrong, and i wouldn't mind seeing a link back to the other forums at the bottom of the page as well as the top, other than that i like it............

    I disagree.... I like it, as well as the Filux skin....Some things can be tweaked alittle, and Im getting ready to start a thread in the Moderator Forum and list some discrepancies that I've found for David to address....
