Darker colors....yes. No option for "ALL" pages on a given post. Not as user friendly.

Pros
-LOVE the drag and drop attachment feature for a desktop, not sure how it will work from a mobile phone
-Likes and rating are cool
-Oh I like how on the right side where the recent discussions are there is a little thumbnail next to a thread which allows you to click on it and view pictures on a post, thats kind of cool (at least for a desk top)


Cons
-I dont really prefer all of the white but but that could grow on me
-The PM section is less than desirable, had all kind of old PM's when I logged in and couldn't find recent ones right away
-I do not like the way the PM's reply as a quote
-Honestly the mobile page is horrendous without forcing a desktop view
-Not really fond about clicking on a thread and taken to the first message not the last/new responses

What indicator are you seeing that lets you know if there are new posts in a forum when scrolling through the forum list?

Eh...wot?

Also, holy advertisements. They are everywhere. They are even between posts. I understand it is a business though and this isn't free to run. So from that regard I completely understand, doesn't mean I like it though.

I agree with the "view all" feature. That is how I preferred to view threads longer than a few pages.

instead of clicking on the desired thread, click the little openbook/bookmark looking thing in front of the thread. it will take you to the first unread post

I like the addition of the like and mention. I do believe you have achieved your goals with the modern look/feel. Page load on my PC and phone have greatly improved.

The only thing that would be nice is to be able to view the entire conversation when responding to a PM and to not have the last message automatically quoted in the reply pane.

Again thanks for the update for me it is a very welcome and appreciated change.
@nomad_archer

Thanks a bunch for the feedback, I will share with the team.

We have made the number of PM's a lot higher now, I will have to try and find a plugin or hack to bring it back to the conversion/thread view.

Should they expect a delay or is that feature a auto send and maybe not working?

Thanks.
@dpms - if a member is stuck not being able to log in please PM me their username and email and we will send them a reset.

@Wald Jager

Drag and Drop and attached images will show up thumbnails, hosted images will show up as full view.

If you click on the thumbnails it will open in full view as a light box.

I really do not like the stuff on the right side of the page. I prefer the threads to take up the entire page. Easier to read, less scrolling, and more to a page.
@Backwoods

You can toggle the sidebar off/on per the first post.

6) The side bar can be hidden in your user options.
Click on my profile / user cp at the top right.
- click on edit your details on the left.
- Look for Show Sidebar on Forum Pages under Additional Information.
- Click disable and save.
