So you, long standing and contributing members, stop posting and being active members because the new design is an "eye-sore" ? Seriously !? :facepalm:

Mainly the white background is the issue kinda harsh on the eyes

+1 having to scroll from the beginning page is a hassle. Makes navigating around much harder. :(

Well I thought I was quoting another post lol about not taking back to last post you read on the page, and having to navigate all the way back to where you left off. The white is annoying also, but not a main distraction for me.

Yes. It actually gave me a headache the other day looking at it.  I think it's the bright white look of it.  Again, the "beta" is significantly better than the initial roll out and the breaks between posts is more noticeable now.   I think that once (if) we're given the option to change some of the colors/settings, it will be ok.   But the white/ligh-light grey/light grey color scheme isn't working for me.  

I love the boards (they're the only message boards I've ever joined that I stayed on longer than a month or two; 15 years, in fact!), but not enough that I'm going to accept getting a headache from reading/participating on them.

What, exactly, is your problem with them?

Like most, I didn't like the initial setup, but it's better now after some tweaks and they're still working on improvements.

:makepoint:

Legitimately, I don't like a single thing about them.

I've visited more based on habit than anything.   After a few seconds of scrolling around in my phone I notice I just exit.

 

I do like the "notify me of replies" switch right about the submit button  I suppose.

To the left of each topic in the forums there is a star or black spot click on that man takes you to the last post :)

Does anyone feel like user activity has slowed down since the transition? Might just be the weekend, but I wonder if things will pick up as more people become accustomed to the new board.

It sure seems like it.  (shrug)

I think many are posting in threads about the new boards instead of posting in the normal spots. So traffic on my usual threads is down but tons of new posts about the boards.

Yeah, even the sales forum seems dead. I'm hoping it's just because people are having trouble coming over to the new place, and not because folks decided to leave. Because right now this place is snoozeville.

Very much so. I think that could be part of the reason for the switch. Less time spent moderating.
