    :oops: don't mind me guys, just that at my age I tend to resist-resent any change.

    Well, it hit me hard too. Forced me to deal with a font issue I've had for a long time in this browser though. So there's that.

    I'm not liking though that there seems to be no way to adjust how many posts you can see per thread.

    Progress apparently!

    I quite like the lightweight straightforwardness of ye olde vBulletin. Shame the company went down the toilet so most forums stuck with what they already had.

    I noticed that as well, hopefully the feature will be added back.

    This is by far the ugliest forum I visit. I don't like the changes.

    Huh... either they haven't gotten around to implementing the 500 post-count requirement for uploading avatars, or they haven't updated the FAQ thread yet. Cuz I'm not supposed to be able to have an avatar yet :D

    Also the signature character limit is longer. Again, unsure if that's intentional or if they haven't re-implemented the limit yet.

    I actually really like the changes. vBulletin was getting a bit old.

    The 500 post requirement has been removed, anyone can have an avatar.

    Right you are! Shortly after the migration it was still 200 characters, but not anymore.

    Oh, very cool. The moderation is good enough on this forum that I'm sure if anyone abused it (like with an obscene image), it would be taken care of very quickly anyways.

    Guys, unless Arn installs a third party plugin the posts per page ability will not return. This forum software does not have that feature due to the way it processes links to posts. The only one that can make the change would be Arn and it applies systemwide, not specific to each user.

    We're stuck with 25 posts per page, which by the way is five more than the default.

    This is... Interesting. At first Tapatalk wasn't working, but now it is. But, wow, this is different

    Also, jbarley, what Sam-H are you referring to, because the only one I can think of is Sammy Haygar (may not be spelling that correct)

    Oh yay! It does! I thought Tapatalk was tied to vBulletin. I like the new look, hopefully it doesn't stress our macs out too much.

    This is definitely different. I'm satisfied with some of the changes.

    How's it running on your PPC's?

    It's running fine on my PMG5 in TFF, I'm booting up my G4 right now. I'm noticing that typing is a bit unresponsive.
