It's very bad

Roll back to the old site until you have a decent update that someone had put more than ten seconds effort into while under the influence of several pints that does not work , looks shit , and damages the brand

Can't start new topic

Does anyone know of a reason why I wouldn't be able to start a new topic?  I've tried in Chrome and Safari on the Mac, didn't work on either, in Safari it kept on logging me out when I tried to get into the forum

Because this has been coded

Because this has been coded by a idiot and it has not been tested

Always the same with major

Always the same with major forum upgrades; people just can't handle change.

I'm sure it can be but this look is not a patch on how the great-looking site was.

I'll bet that other sites have tried to copy how the old look was, simply because there wasn't anything wrong with it, Why change something which isn't broken ?

This scattered BIG-LOOK is a sad looking set up for what was a great site...... why on earth was it changed any way ?

Change, people can handle, but broken links, bad coding and seeming absence of any testing before going live, is amateurish at best.

And to have the forum setup so that one brief post takes up almost an entire page is rather pointless.

The lack of posts since the 'upgrade' should tell the tale well enough and most of those made are complaints.

I can only presume from that statement that the old forum was the only forum you've ever used.

The old forum was by far and away the worst I've ever had the misfortune to use.  If you copy and pasted text into it you lost all the formatting.  Paragraphs all melted into one wall of text.  Nightmare.  The old forum code must have come from the Jurassic Period.  This is more up to date, faster, cleaner and just needs the odd tweak here and there.

The old site looked, well, old!  I also doubt if the coding could cope with or take advantage of the changes in web and forum design.  There always comes a time when the old code become a bit obsolete and you need newer websites to take advantage of what the latest browsers are capable of.

I dunno if this is against the rules and a mod can delete this sentence, but if you want to see a modern website that this should aspire to then check out avforums.

The AVF redesign is almost as bad as this, and managed to see off plenty of regulars..

This is far worse than merely bad. I've worked making software for 30 years, and rule #1 is -- NEVER EVER remove functionality that users have been enjoying, and you have removed my ability to work here with the ipad. BOO HISS!!

I think they've been successful with their primary aim of giving the advertising greater prominence. 

Apple Mini -> Pioneer U-05 -> Adam A7X

ATV -> NuForce Icon HDP -> Genelec 8020C
