    New forum rocks, nice job Jamie.

    I notice we can no longer see post counts? Is this intentional?

    hmm ... lookin good :D ... but harder to find particular threads? are you not afraid of certain sections, ie. general just getting completly swamped at times, so if a casual browser comes to checkout the forums (not a hardcore addict like moi :p) they will find that they have to leave through pages and pages to find what they are looking for?

    I like it, although I'll miss my (relatively low) post count.

    Filtering the threads by post icon should help but many of our sub forums were completely dead so merging them together should hopefully get people looking through stuff they might not usually see.

    Well, I suppose there has to be one grumpy person. I'll let it sink in for a bit, but my first impression is that I liked the old style better.

    The color scheme is nice; it looks a little cleaner in that respect. However, the navigation just throws me off. I rather liked the old version, but that may be because I was used to it.

    Like I said, I'll give it a try. Maybe I'll come to like the new format, or maybe I'll just pine for the "good old days."

    I was thinking that too. I want to look at things for sale in the UK and if there is alot of activity on USA threads then ill have to trawl through lots of pages to see what for sale in the UK.

    You have minimised the catagorys way too much which seems to be a backwards aproach. Should be spliting them more so people can find specific topics of interest to post about.

    There were 37 forums in the old version. That's way too many. I would hope people would give the new forum a few days before making snap decisions. Of course we are open to suggestions.

    Ahh i see, the sub sections has been reduced but can be accessed via the filter buttons.
    Im still not 100% about it but it will need some time to get adjusted to it.

    Any chance of getting the retro colors back on the system?

    Wha? we lost the post count aswell?

    Generally pretty cool, but with everything being condensed isn't there a concern that everything will get lost in massive long lists of threads? Oh and where is the entertainment section?
