    I don't think the primary colors should be orange and green. That color combo actually makes me a little sick.

    Who's idea was it to make the colour scheme like Miami's? The green banner should be blue. My only complaint.

    Hot tip: zoom out your browser to 90%. Much more optimal for viewing IMO

    Is mobile the only paradigm that matters? This is pants when viewed on a computer but yes, zooming out to 90% makes it sufferable.

    Cheesy, homemade website look. The old format was just fine on my phone (no need for tapatalk), looked great, and had plenty of features. No need for change - especially to this.

    Been away for a day or two. Seems a lot better today. Content fills more of the screen and the gray background helps the posts not run together. The new and larger font is way easier on my old eyes too.

    The green banner is also pixelated again much like the last version. Is it so hard for whoevers in charge to get a decent resolution image? Its 2018 lol. Also it looks more like watermelon, not gator skin. Swing and a miss. And make it blue!

    I couldn't find that, sorry

    It lacks definition of old board. I don't know why the change was made and don't really care. It's worse, not better.

    You have a friend? Who knew. :)

    I see the number of replies and views in the forum list - I am guessing that I am missing something - again:

    Replies/Views only appears if your screen is wide enough. I'm still working on an old non-widescreen monitor and they don't show up, but if I zoom out to like 70%, they appear.

    Waited for a few days of using the new format to respond. Not a fan, liked the previous format much better. Don't see the need for supposedly upgrading what is not broken.

    Unfortunately, the prior format was no longer compatible with our newer forum software and several things were broken inside it. New features we've added to the forum would not work with the prior format either.

    For what it's worth, many folks did not like the old format when we switched to it years ago so it's a matter of getting used to it over time. We'll keep tweaking as we go!

    I just figured out a new feature.

    You can hi light a single sentence in a post and only reply to that sentence. Pretty cool!
