good to have the possibility to post more than one picture at the time. The other new issues I might be able to find out over time, or may be not.

the text is too light for the light blue in these two pics, but other than that the forums are twice as good as before.

It appears to be the "reputation" rating, grey appears to be neutral or not rated and green seems to be a good rating.

On my system these two sets of texts are black and not white. You might want to clear your cache and try again. Let me know if the problem persists.

To be blatantly honest with you, I'm really beginning to miss the old forums. On these ones, there's way too much room being taken up by little icons and the user bar along the righthand side. It just seems soooo much more difficult to keep track of. If you ask me, simplicity is key.

I'm sorry to say this, but I liked the old forums a whole lot better.

Tend to disagree. I don't know which user bar you are referring to, the one that appears during the writing of the posts? There is none on my screen when reading anything. A second very good point I just discovered is that the notification emails of new posts now contain the actually message send, so you can save yourself a lot of time not having to open posts like: "Wow", or "LOL".
So try to keep up with it, and maybe you'll get used to it. I think you are too young to already become a conservative.

i agree but i think this forum needed to be changed to comply with the website change but yea simplicity is the key i think wouter didnt need to take this change to a whole new level...next time wouter you might want to take a few suggestions before doing changes and not just giving a 30 minute warning

The whole forums came as a software package, so we have to take the good with the bad. After working with it for a while I have gotten to really like the many new features. Especially the attachment feature is awesome. All old uploads now also have thumbnails.
I think most of it is getting familiar with the new layout and options and then you'll like it as much as I do.
