    How do you see your signature and other people's signature?

    You could see them on people's post but now I don't see them.

    So far I dig the changes. Somethings will take a little getting used to but that's to be expected.

    There's currently a large empty space, fixed width, on the right side of the desktop layout. I see the ads, but it needs to be adjusted such that 1) the side ads are narrower and/or 2) post width extends outwards to fill that space underneath the ads. 300+ pixels is a lot of space, especially if not browsing fullscreen.

    edit: Would be nice to have an option for clicking on a thread from the main forum page to use the "unread" behavior as opposed to taking you to the latest post.

    Gotta say Alex, this new layout is quite easy on the eyes.
    Only things I would change have already been mentioned here, notably the separation between sticky and normal threads, as well as the 'first unread post' function on clicking a thread.

    Seems like half the pictures refuse to load or are corrupting in threads. Also having trouble viewing other people's image sigs.

    Glad the "likes" are back, but what about the "thanks"

    This is the most significant change I've ever seen over here.

    Admins, the new site update is really nice. Gives off a modern look and feel. I know its not just a flip of a switch kind of effort to implement an update like this, so much appreciated! Nice work.

    Can't help but feel nostalgic about the old aesthetics, I practically grew up with it.

    The site just doesn't feel the same without the like button, having that back is my favorite part about the update.

    maybe a bit more difference between the readed and new posted un-readed treds name? I know now theres a dot next to the un-readed treads and the font is a little bit more Bold. But the difference between that bold and normal is pretty small. Difference seemed bigger and easy to spot in the old forum. Or maybe because every tread now is un-readed" for me?? lol

    either way thanks for the updates and to bring the likes back

    This update is like putting a Floyd Rose on a Gibson 1949 ES-5C

    I love the new forum, wonderful look, just one thing totally kills me:

    You can't automatically read the first response to your subscribed threads in your email account. My mobile phone is almost 10 years old and takes years to open a website, but I at least could read the first answer, not anymore :(
