    Please post anything that seems buggy, or that could be improved. For good ideas I'm willing to write custom addons.

    Also report any issues of the main site here.

    Known issues:
    - Direct login from techpowerup.com not working

    Looks good. Thanks so much for the effort.. and I see editing tools not in 'advanced'! W00t!

    Can I switch themes to a darker one? I will look for the option but have not seen it so far...

    this is probably obvious, but if you click the "comment on news post" button it gives a 404.

    Is this serious? I thought the forum was hacked.

    Are you really dead serious about THIS being new look (which noone asked for) of the forum?

    I'm guessing the awards were uh, awarded last Sunday because that's when you began the 'migration'?

    Forum is over bright.

    Not feeling this at all.

    You compete with others using the main site not the forums.

    links from the main page direct to pages that 404.


    color theme is so light i cant tell where the white stops and the blue starts.


    edit and delete buttons are tiny and on the left, not near reply/their usual location.


    new moderator queue function is rather nice, quite a timer saver (not that this helps most of the users in this thread :p)

    new email notifications look rather fancy, and pointless. showing me the content of a post (with users avatars!) seems pointlessly complicated. why show me full details of a single post of a thread that could have 50 more posts after it? the simpler 'click here to read' and 'click here to unsubscribe' emails were far simpler, and made more sense.

    live update of posts not working. dont see the custom buttons for reporting posts/infractions/spam ban

    Is there a way to hide avatars? Because it's like looking at your stupid internet faces.

    Also, the smileys are tewwible. :mad:

    Are we getting boxes for the new posts and news like the old forums? Those were very handy. Also is the cross hair off about a 1/4 of a inch for other users? I have to go below the "post reply" button to even click it

    I liked the old forum style better. is there an option to revert back? because in there I don't have to scroll a lot just to visit different sections in the main forum page. everything fits on 1-2 pages.

    This new style has lot of unused areas that makes pages unneccessary larger, I would understand if this is the format for iPads, Tablets, but seeing that I use a Desktop I would prefer the older design, I checked wayback machine and it was used since around 2006 the earliest I could see and i would like to have that streak going :)

    Yeah I really miss that box, the most recently posted threads in one side, articles arranged by date in the other.

    Well this new layout is a lot more fresh and nice I guess, but I did prefer the (relatively) no-nonsense layout of the old. I'm pretty sure I'll get used to this though - no dramas. :)

    A small bug is the message count I think, I haven't even reached 1000 posts yet but my counter says 2725. :/

    I'll quote myself, but besides this my only real gripe is the lack of contrast in the colors (as have been mentioned already).
