    Angry New Forum

    I'm not liking this new forum. It's very cumbersome and once in it, there is not a direct way to get to the file library or FAQ page. What is this choice of Icons for my message? Can I still use smilies in my message? Are we limited to the length of a message? Not a good way to start off the day

    They use this format at my Gran Turismo Forum, and It's pretty good, really. there arent' as many features here, I've noticed, but I'm sure that'll change as things go along.

    A lot of other forums use this format. Seems good to me, I like it.

    You'll get used to it. All links are on front page.

    Not only is this a more widely used format than the past software, but it is also easier for us to track trouble makers who ramble the forums.

    I personally like the switch.

    Not to mention faster and more efficient search features.

    I also like how it is set up, it's different, and looks cooler.

    A very welcome change, and an excellent choice of forum software; better then PHPbb, IMHO.

    Kudos to Nels.

    Thumbs up New Forum

    I do like the new quick reply feature. Haven't tried the new search feature yet. The go advanced option is pretty neat as well It will just take a little time to get adjusted and then look out

    Well, I'm not entirely convinced either. What I miss is the ability to look at a "tree" of replies on post that have had a number of replies already.

    Or maybe I hate facing another "learning curve" anymore.
