I kind of like the new look.
Are you on a mobile or desktop? It's definitely got the white background popping it up as brighter for me.
Very interesting ! Looking forward to using these new forums. :)
It's very... plain. But matches the wintery theme I suppose.
Not a bad look. At this cuts down on the # of sites i need to go to get my stuff for gencon..
I've been busy writing user CSS to override things I don't like, like making the links easier to see and getting rid of the sidebar. There's a lot of weird attributes and places where there's no class specified but I would have expected one, which isn't helping. :/
Otherwise, it's extremely barebones. Rolling their own is not something I would have recommended.
On the old forums we had our sig line.. How do you go about getting that back here?
I was just getting my fancy die in my profile up past newb levels on the old forum :(
The new forums look awesome! Although it does now look less like I might be on a boring old business site which makes it harder to browse at work :p
Also the old forum had the capacity to quote multiple people. This one seems to only let you quote one person at a time.
As long as they're on the same page you can quote multiple posts by clicking the "quote post arrow" for each one. It formats a quote in the New Post box, below whatever's already in there, in a way you can't duplicate otherwise.
I hope that we get profile pics again, I miss being able to see straight away who is who :(
I agree that the generic icons are nice but not as nice as using your own.
