What better place to discuss the new forums then here?

well, possibly Important Threads, maybe Announcements...


but anyways, what i like about these new forums, the layout on the main page! i got very annoyed by the fact taht i'd accidently click Journals instead of Forums almost half the time on the old system!

i like the simpler navigation


i dont know if i like the colors, but that could jsutbe because im not used to them. Browns, and reddish earth colors.. how odd!
and i miss my title... it was such a short-lived title...

i'll be telling my grandkids, though, how for two months i was the Avatar Pimp flunkie of DOOM!

If you miss the old blue and silver you can always switch to the classic subSilver theme available in the profile (only the forums will be colored that way though I think.)
[edit]Whoops, sorry. I just saw the subSilver selection, i hadn't tried it. I see now that it doesn't actually work.[/edit]

I like the fact that the Jump To box at the bottom of the page works again, and the title is now page specific again! (whoopee!)

I do think the page layout needs to be made more large monitor friendly (800p max?!) but that may be something to post to the Suggestions forum.

Is it just me or does everything seem... bigger? It's like I'm being forced to use 800x600 against my will. :bert:

That's probably it. I think it looks great.

Well, it might come back, you never know.

I like the fact I can post again, instead of getting those crazy invalid whatever whatever messages.

New colours are nifty too. And uhh... I'll think of other stuff as I go.

The colours are startling, but I think I rather like them.

And I think I'm addicted...haven't read any of my webcomics yet, haven't checked e-mail, just wandering around on my sweet, sweet sluggy.net.

MOOP!

I personally like it better. This scheme won't hurt my eyes at night! Yay!

And it's good to be back. A round of cheers for the Mods! Yay!

Well, only in that one expects sluggy.net to be blue. These smooth earthy browns are actually quite soothing, I think. I love the new colour scheme.

Murr...while I do like the new forums, I'm less then partial with the new interface and homepage and stuff. I liked the old one better.
Then again, they're not done yet, so...

It's a shame that we lost our inboxes, I had one or two messages I wanted to save for nostalgic reasons. Anyway, I'm mostly indifferent about the new layout - except that I'm glad we ditched phpNuke. It's just another hacking attempt waiting to happen.

I'd say that I like the new forums, thus far. Seems quite a bit easier to navigate, and I find the colors quite comfortable. Reminds me a bit of a nice couch I used to have.

The new forums actually remind me quite a bit of the layout and color scheme of the old Sluggite Zone and alpha boards that predated the beta boards and our initial love affair with subsilver.
