Hmm, login bar, menu bar, GIANT advert and massive font means I can't see ANY forum posts without scrolling down, that's pretty annoying.
Can't say it's much slower than before, my laptop is too slow to show any difference anyway!
Useful feedback, I think an eternal whinger is what we have here.
not sure I understand the requirement for "Active Topics" and "New and Updated Topics", they would seem to be the same thing but only "New and Updated Topics" has the link to view the newest posts but that doesn't show this thread after I'd posted to it?
I like the new smilies.
There doesn't seem to be any way to search the forums anymore ?
I just tried to do a search, and it just gave me results in the 'products' category.
(And the font size is ridiculous!)

Wait, Active Topics DOES show the view new posts link but only if you're not the last person to post to the thread but does show you the thread, New and Updated doesn't show you the thread at all if you're the last person to post to it.
Seems a slightly pointless distinction?
Well I've finally managed to log in. The site seems to be incredibly slow - and getting lots of "Page not found" errors. I assume it's taking a while to update the page caches on the servers hosting it...
Not 100% sure I like the new format.
Fonts are a little hard to read when creating messages - is that thin grey on white?

Since you've upgraded to Drupal 7 (I presume?) which tapatalk now officially supports rather than being 'to experimental' as I've been told by WHF in the past, please add support for it.
Then at least I can still visit without being confronted by the hideousness.
+1 on the lack of forum search function..
Two comments - gripes, because no-one ever has anything good to say about anything new...
The news page is very picture driven - perhaps it's me, but I prefer to read words with the image adding to the written piece.
The forum page (and I've made this comment before) - all the sub-forums are divided into columns (forums, topic, posts, last post). the "last post bit shows the first word or two of the title of the most recently posted on thread. It's not enough to be meaningful. EG:
Computer Based Media - "Best..." Best what?
DACs - "Do I need a ..."
PCs - "Help needed..."
Apple iPad "Watching..."
The aim of the column is to draw a poster in. I wouldn't normally look at the PCs subforum, but if I knew that the thread was "Help needed - battery for Dell XPS", I might be temped in (as I own a Dell XPS).
I reckon i could like this new website, it might take a bit of getting used to though.
Only using this on a phone so far, which is 95% of my usage. Sorry, but I really hate it. Everything is too large and illogically set out. Avatars are enormous, when a user was last active is also huge. The 'post title' is massive and usually makes no sense as it is the first few words. And then I can only see a few lines of text at a time. And on the active topics I can only really see one topic at a time, which is ridiculous.
Posting this it also seems the problems of posting from an iPhone persists, yet there is now no option to disable (and then enable) rich text, rather I have to click 'done' and then click back in to stop it freezing.
Can I please have an option of a 'desktop view' like on most sites?
And the signature thing will be a PITA as mine was links to my system threads, which will be buried somewhere in the midsts of time.
ANDY...gimme my sig back
I hope no one is patting themselves on the back for this dogs dinner of an 'update'.
