    I'm seeing ALL the following messages at the bottom of each forum I open, even if the thread was only started today:

      The forums look a little messed up at the moment.

    It looks good now, I like the new look.  It appears to be a change in progress  smile

    I didn't see this thread and I started a new one. I'll put a link and ask for it to be closed.

    Change! Nooooo! D: I'm going to curl up in a ball beneath my desk and whimper until it's back to normal, or until I learn it's a final change and I've properly adjusted.

    I need to be better at adjusting to change. tongue

    I'm not terribly happy with the look just yet. Maybe it'll grow on me, I dunno. I do like the typeface that is being used, and I like the larger font. But the spread-across-the-screen look just doesn't do it for me. At least, not yet.

    On the other hand......

    In Threaded view, this spread may be an improvement, since replies to replies to replies keep getting squeezed (squoze? LOL) too far to the right to even see.

    I guess I'll backtrack and reserve judgment until I know what's going on.

    I can't believe what I'm seeing. With all the garbage going on about Pinterest today, and with HP in a mudslide about traffic over the last year, why are you messing with forum formats? I really hope I'm seeing a glitch of some kind. This new format sucks.

      I agree! It's giving me a headache.

    Here is a blog post about the forum change:

    The biggest beef I have with this change is how small everything is. I cannot look at avatars and reply/report buttons without straining my eyes. Sure, I can increase the zoom on my browser, but I don't have to do that anywhere else.

    Also, they are slapping a serif font for the forum posts, where the rest of the site, including usernames and reply buttons associated with forum posts, is sans serif. Doesn't look too good to me.

    The forums are so new and improved, they broke a lot of things...

    Whatever happened to the days when admin used to test new things before launching them?

      This is their test. They will see how many users are affected, and who complains about what. Though I don't see why they couldn't test it accross platforms before making it live, as I have heard people complain about iPad, laptop screen resoluation, etc. etc.
