While I don't want to judge too much until I've had some time to get used to this one, I do think the lack of any defined borders around the posts makes it quite hard to read.

The design isn't that bad, but I'd like to see a separate news section in the top right and at the top left the latest forum topics.
(A little more like it was before)

Looks rather generic (doesn't have the TPU look) and the font is smaller, so it's not so good for those of us with less than perfect eyesight, like me. The old one looked much better. Just skin it and it should be fine. I see the siggy's back.

We're missing all our stats under our avatar too and that's a biggie for me.

Is there any way to make things wider? The large empty spaces on the sides seems like such a waste.

What happened? It's like a YouTube layout nuke they did way back. This is gonna take some getting used to, it doesn't "feel" like TPU forums somehow.

It's nice that important buttons are stored up top, but couldn't that be done before?

I don't mind the change though it would be nice if the posts could take up the full (or near full) width of the screen.

Thanks, but it still feels like there is a lot of empty space on the sides. Didn't the old forums auto adjust to take up the whole screen, or am I crazy?

If you make them much wider, texts will get very difficult to read due to the extreme line length

Increased the limit by another +200 px

Got it. Thanks! It is much better since you changed it, so I'm happy.

Now we just need a dark theme so my retinas don't burn away while I'm browsing the site in the dark. :D

I like it - feels snapier. Wish there was a dark/grey theme though - all that white is hurting my eyeballs.

Same here, I like it. Very stylish and refined.
Liking it so far, looks clean & minimalistic which I like.
And yet it DOESN'T look like the flat, ametuerish and childish UI from Windows8/8.1/10 or the "materials" look from the latest versions of Android. Microsoft and Google could learn a lot from this look!
It looks superb on the mobile app.
I'm not seeing a difference, are you talking about the app or browsing on a mobile web browser?
Call me a Luddite but i dont like the look on PC
Ok. Luddite! LOL! Joking aside, I gotta disagree. This is a very good look on PC, both Windows and Linux(which should be the same anyway).

1. I would like a dark theme. The more themes, the better :)
2. The Steam ID field in the account details is too narrow.
3. The System Spec page is missing.
4. I'd like an option to make the forum more narrow because when people add very long posts without paragraphs it becomes quite difficult and tiresome to read them.
5. I'd like an option to hide TPU badges or make the option of hiding people's signatures apply to their badges as well.
