I fully expect that those with negative opinions will modify their feelings as they get accustomed to the new furniture around here.

I'm curious what the general public thinks as of right now.

Please at the very least, click a button in the poll choices and submit.

Thanks!

I think it is fine. It took me a day or so to get used to it. But I like it now.

One change I'd like to see is in the Quick Navagation area is rather than a top of page button have the button take you back to the forum you had been viewing.

The more I visit the more I get used to it. There are some small things I don't like, for instance, the little symbol next to the post day/time...it used to be yellow for new posts so it was easier to skip to posts you haven't already read in a thread vs the white for read and light blue for unread now.

But, as I said, the more I'm here the more I get used to it.

It's bright makes my eyes water, Looks like every other forum that has switched to the new version, got to go up to the top to remember where I am. The sites has lost it's individuality.

The new icons (envelopes, etc.) in front of the thread titles, seem to make the look more "busy" than I prefer. I'll get used to it, and for the most part, already have. But it's not as "clean" as the old software. It does seem to have some nice features though.

Just a matter of getting used to the new format...I'm not having any problems per se (at least not with the forum LOL)

My only challenge with it so far is that the contrast on the RTF general forum page is so minimal compared to the old version, that my eyes have to work harder to see the difference between the sticky's and the Thread titles.

But this is a teency tiny complaint and I'm already used to it. I love all the other changes.

x1....on these two.

Well, it definitely is going to take some getting used to, and I can't predict that I am going to like it, but am trying to stay positive. I find it much harder on the eyes to easily navigate.

As everyone else says, it will take some time to adapt. Thats harder to do the older I get.
I liked the old version log in. I typed the first letter of my login name and the name and password came up automatically. Is that possible now?
The colors are more muted than before. I am having trouble keeping my place in the reading list of messages as I go back and forth. But overall, no problems.

I am off to a Rocky start! First I got myself locked out by trying to change my email address. Now I can not figure out any way to reply to a thread except for "quick reply". (no icons/smilies). Maybe it will grow on me if I am patient enough to keep trying. But it is hard to love when connectivity is limited and very frustrating to miss the short window of opportunity due to quirks.
