    Horrible! Please go back to the orginal!

    the screen is one third the size

    It looks like the forums when they were first invented many years ago.

    the only good thing is the avitar is a square and not a circle which would cut off a portion of your picture

    the small spacing makes for less words in a row and longer scroll downs to get to the bottom of the thread.

    too much white and bright.

    What are other forum website options besides GC?

    Not a fan at the moment but I imagine any change is hard to take at first. On initial reaction I'm not a fan of the fewer text per screen and longer scroll to read even one post.

    Ima be honest . . . . it looks like :emoji_fearful:
    This seemed to come out of nowhere. Did we know a change was a comin'? Not that they owe that to us; I'm just curious. The other look seemed cleaner and more . . . Gator.

    That’s what I posted on the Mod forum. The width is about 1/3 the size. With big chunks of the side not being used.

    It's strange this is being billed as "more modern".

    You have made Nussmeier’s offense look exciting by comparison

    But how do you really feel?

    Also the notification green flag doesn't work. you quoted me and I have no notice unless I hover over the flag. Why are they going to try to impliment it if is is so much worse than the other board?

    Looks like mobile browser format. I can change size but it still don't fit the laptop screen. Not an improvement.

    I like the menu, but that does not come close to how much I dislike the stuff that is mentioned others above.

    Could've used a heads up this will change soon sticky unless I just completely missed it.
    Still toying with the new site.

    As WC Fields once said "I'd rather have two girls at 21 than one at 42."
    (This site is kinda feels like 3 girls at 62....disturbing). :eek:

    If GC wanted to 'upgrade' they should have stolen what FloridaGators.com once had.
    That was an incredible site and now that they're gone....who would care?
    The "search forums" section does not help.
