Presenting the All New TechPowerUp Forums

We're excited to present the all new TechPowerUp Forums, which features a swanky new user interface that keeps up with the times with its easier to read fonts, quicker to grasp user interface, and new sharing and collaboration features. The new TechPowerUp Forums leverages XenForo, a powerful new bulletin board software that's snappy to load and use. The best part? We've managed a smooth port of our five-plus year old TechPowerUp Forums content, including all its users, user-groups, sections, threads, and posts. With over 68,000 users, over 180,000 threads, and close to 3 million posts, TechPowerUp Forums is one of the biggest communities for PC enthusiasts on the web.

I like it. It's a nice, smooth interface.
Now where's the thread to report what's been broken?

So shiny, hate the baby blue tough, the thanks and reply buttons look kind of unnatural.

I still miss the old comment system.

I think I'll just admit it right away: I don't like it because it's different, and too tailored for tablets.

Yeah, i agree,... that has been my main criticism since the front page redesign as well....
I mean, yeah, i get it, blue = tech, but why is the logo dark grey/red ???

Plus too many font faces. (Thanks & Reply button have one kind, Post reply, Upload a file and More options is another kind, then you have username, inbox & alerts a different kind, article date has a serif font, and lastly the logo which is a sans)

Not really forum breaking issues, but the overall look needs more consistency.

I wouldn't ever had said "easier to read fonts" the default font shoves this letters together especially here when typeing. I think it's actually worsre to read!

easier to read fonts
read: simply larger fonts, so only half the stuff would fit on the screen now

by: W1zzard
quicker to grasp user interface
read: a much more confusing interface and a color scheme with a greatly reduced contrast so it would be much harder to see stuff, especially for those with bad vision


Yaaaaaaay!!!!! ...no. :(




P.S. gimme back muh stars :p

Well, it's guaranteed that most of us will have a week or so of teething problems till we get accustomed to the new format. But I must admit it's much cleaner and less '90s than before :D And W1zz is constantly online listening to complaints and trying to improve stuff for everyone (poor guy ;)) So let's just give it some time shall we? :)

Meh, speed and other improvements aside, I much preferred the old look.

This looks so washed-out, and is much too bright, it is actually giving me a headache.

Technical things first, looks can be fixed once we iron out all the important bugs.
