I do think there are some good improvements... but the fundamentals have changed - and it's not good. On balance, I'd forfeit the new trappings that I like to go back to the old forum. I'm not against change, but not change for the sake of change. To much of this wasn't thought out properly. Add rather remove the Bling and improve usability and function. A poll sounds like a good idea, but I'm not sure how it would be accomplished. We need more than an old vs new. I'm sure we'd all like some of the new features to remain, but we need a way of determining which features proved a hit and ehich didn't.
