    On my end, it looks like none of the youtubevids survived the transition. Anyone else not seeing any vids? The pics seemed to have carried over.

    I'm still looking it over. The layout sure is nice, but I'm feeling initially lost... which is understandable. Will report back about videos, pictures, etc., once I become a bit more familiar.

    Oh man, I couldn't tell you the last time I saw anyone's avatar/signature. Time to go change those back.

    The read status of all threads has been reset. lol
    That will fix itself though I suppose.

    Yeah, my "Unread Watched Threads" tab is kinda... full :lol: (let's see if that emoji works... EDIT: it does!! :D Emojis remain unchanged for the most part.)

    And the fact that you can just highlight text and reply to ONLY the highlighted text... bless.

    how is contributor status reflected now, anyway? sorry if this is off topic, but I don't think it is worth a new topic and we are already discussing update issues here.

    Sorry if I'm hurting anyone's feelings, but this new UI looks like garbage. Borders between posts are basically eliminated and everything around a post is just as large as the post itself, making for a very clunky read.

    ^ I don't find it very messy, but it seems that I will need to go through a short adjustment period, especially regarding website organization. I can see where you're coming from though.

    Also, what the hell are these "points," or "trophy points"?

    I quite like the new interface and find the content easier to focus on with this new look :shrug:

    Plus, notifications are so much better and noticeable now
    I also like how the poster's profile picture is next to the thread they started in the main forum menu since I tend to recognize people by their pictures more than their name anyways.

    Yeah I was wondering that myself, seems like mine has changed as I'm not able to post to the classifieds all of the sudden?

    It's more of a standard forum format now, moving with the times isn't bad and it should make the forum easier to look after moving forward. Also I think the old look was dated.

    However the current colour scheme of this updated forum is really hard on the eyes here and the old forum never suffered from that. If anything I think the way it was it was possibly the easiest forum to read for extended periods. Now I'm finding it difficult to look at.

    What happened to groups? I was part of the Ibanez and Jackson players groups and now they've seemed to be disappeared since the update.

    Anyway, I like the new interface because it doesn't look like an old message board from 2005 anymore and profile editing is so much easier to navigate now.

    How do you figure that? The background is now darker and the text is a tad bigger. It's much easier to read now. Take a look at the comparison of a random thread below...(title jumps out way better for starters)
