    I was here at the last (2?) redesign(s). I look forward to this. Most tech sites ironically don't seem very techy.

    Is there going to be any sort of purge of old unused threads?

    From looking at the new forums I'm very excited, please please be patient once we're live though; there's always teething issues, we'll get 'em sorted. :)

    Deer god... I was thinking how this site looks outdated literally 2 days ago. I even considered offering my services :) Happy to see this happening!

    Everytime i see a site mention a redesign, i always assume it is going to be like what extremetech did back in the day. Literally nothing but ads around the outside and a small port in the center of the screen with like two links. Just like those old free PCs with a ring of ads and a tiny viewport in the center of the screen.

    I've found the new interface to be decent during testing :)

    I wish all who were/are involved the best of luck. And I'll put up with any teething issues!

    Then the beans are cool. Which would be about the only thing that is atm !

    I think for modern forum software OCUK is about as good as I've seen. Linus's site drags its ass even on 72mb fibre.

    While you're playing about with css & stuff, why is the site such a narrow strip down the middle of most modern monitors?

    The days of VGA are long gone!

    Going by other XenForo-based forums I use (SmallFormFactor.net, HardOCP), it's the only remaining non-garbage forum platform. Rejoice that it's not Discourse!
