Don't like it. I probably shouldn't say that as a moderator but this is a discussion thread and Im just being honest. Where is the search button? How come I cant see who is online? Where is the member button? Why am I getting auto play ads? Where is my contributor banner? Where is my itrader rating? Also before on the home page I could choose to go to the first or last post of the thread. Cant do that now. Even the new old version isn't as good. Form should always follow function. A huge part of coming here is to be able to easily access information on the zx-10r that you cant find anywhere else. Are we trading that for a more social media type of site?

Does this board have polls? Would be a good time for one.

Sorry, but I do not like it at all. I really liked the way it was. It was simple, and easy to use. Now it is just a bunch of garbled mess. Seems to be what always happens when the "Techies" get involved. They want to add all of these fancy features that nobody will ever use and just make a mess of things. Remember, simple is always better. Please go back, or make it easy for people to use the old setup if that is what they like. Thanks. Mike.

Here's something closer to what I prefer (I think similar to the "simple" that the above person mentions):

To be fair though Or, you can get those with the switch back to the Greenapple skin. But no member list that I can see and the home page is not the same.

Also you cant go to the last post in a thread on the home page of the old version. I guess my point is shouldn't the new version be better than the old? I shouldn't want to go back to the old if the new version is better right?
I will say I like the Garage feature. The gallery seems to be fixed. The new smilies are cool and I also like the recent quote alert.

I prefer the old site look. much easier to navigate. I view this site on my phone most of the times and it is horrible to navigate.
now I hesitate to open up your site on my phone. why change if it wasn't broken?

Don't like.

Seems like the sole purpose of design is so there can be
more and bigger display ads.

Fair attempt to re-design to be a modern "responsive" design.

Images scale kinda. Alignment almost works. But again, all the display ads get in the way of the responsive design.

Some sites just don't work well with a responsive design and
should just stick with 2 designs, normal site and mobile site.

Responsive designs work best when site is just dumbed down
to the very basics. But "responsive design" is the big buzz now a days.

Guess we can blame it on Google's push that all web sites
have to pass their mobile standards or loose rank scare tactics.

I'll head off and try to change to classic, or old theme, etc.

This theme gives me a headache.

*** Found the "Classic" theme, ahhh...much better.
