Ok, I will be constructively honest. The new software is worse, in my humble opinion, than the old forum software. Way too much white space! I am viewing this on my smartphone. And the grey text on white background is difficult for us seniors (at least me and my wife) to read. Most modern forum software gives each user the ability to modify the background/text to colors they like. Most modern forum software also allows the user to selecr the font size also I see no options for any of that in my profile options. Every message now has the profile of the member who made that post at the top. It used to be in a sidebar, thus making the actual messages spaced too far apart... with mostly white space inbetween messages.My wife and I are just 2 voices, maybe the others here are happy, but maybe not. How about Phoenix post a poll to see how folks like the new look?
