I know your right Axel. I'm sure the same thing is true here. If no ones depositing money no money is being made.

I guess I'm a stick in the mud but I really dislike change, just to be changing. If it's not broke don't fix it.

As a business model it probably was broken. They obviously know what's needed to make a successful affiliate site.

Funny I get the feeling that this new site is not done by a Professional Webmaster.

Wizard and is it Face knows a thing or two about websites.

Old site is far superior, still always wondered why Bob with 17,000+ posting should appear at the top of the page.

New logo appears to be home made. But there are too many other things to mention.

Problem is I don't know where is the information I am looking for now.

Face said almost the same thing earlier so you are bordering on plagiarism.
I see your new Avatar, not bad. I wanted the grumpy Gibbon;-)

Adding to the chorus: the thing about bright white on neon white accented with fluorescent white really is a problem. With light gray lettering. Mmmm. Maximum viewing pain threshold < 90 seconds.

Blocked member's posts no longer expand, the link is dead.

Banned members don't show up as banned.

Font is awful (and that could be told with 3 minutes of UI testing). 'We'll change it later' is a terrible answer.

Haven't tried to screw with the icons, yet... not being paid to try and actively break it so won't bother to actively go through all the options and see what else is broken or can be broken.

Oh well, your site, your expenses.

I prefer the old site, but that's probably just because I, like most people, don't like change to something we're familiar and comfortable with. Like others have said, i'm sure i'll get used to it in a week or two.

I'll second all the comments about the text needing to be bolder or darker...

Just looked at it on my mobile too, and whilst it fits much better on the screen, one thing i cant do is 'pinch' the mobile screen to make it bigger. For example, when looking at this thread, the options were 'Pages 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9...Last Page' ... If I wanted to go to, say, page 6, i'd need really accurate fingers to do so. And i have skinny fingers.

And also, post count/threads started etc doesn't show up on mobile.

Instead of using html to do fonts and such I would like to see the post box have the options like word does, so if you want bold you just click bold and type. A lot of other forums have this function.



+1 to this.

I've also seen other forums with this, rather than having to use code to do it, surely not too hard to implement here.
