    I think that the webmaster has put a lot of work in to this interface already, and it's getting better all the time to be much like what it used to be

    I agree - at first it was annoying, but now it is closer to original and I have gotten used to it. I wouldn't mind a change back, but I sort of like this now (as long as they use these smilies ) .
    EDIT: i agree with jver, not brian

    It takes a while to get used to it. Perhaps all the "extra" features could be removed/hidden from the pages.

    I really like the quick response, the bold topic font, and the tooltips when you highlight the topic.

    If you could be a bit more specific about things you would like to see changed to make it more like the old forum, I would be grateful. I have tried to remove most of the unnecessary bells and whistles graphics that were originally part of the new board, but if I have missed something, I would love to know.

    The reply box resets if you go backwards or forwards. The design is ugly, mainly the white text on dark blue background but also the title bar ^^^ and it's associated ugly directory icons.
    <-- the avatar bar sticks out too far

    ALL of the tool tips are pointless and annoying.
    The reply box is ugly.
    The quick reply box is ugly and its pointless, it only saves you one click.
    The thread rating thing is retarded.
    The additional options go off the page on the reply section.
    All of the new icons are hideous.
    The cells on the forum list need more padding or at least need to be evenly spaced, as they look all wonky.

    I could go on but my original reply got erased because I hit back by accident.

    Poor baby!

    >>The reply box is ugly.

    The regular reply box is almost 100% the same.

    >>The quick reply box is ugly and its pointless, it only saves you one click.

    And another page loading. in the upper-right hand corner you have an option to collaps it. Use it instead of complaining about its existence.

    >>The thread rating thing is retarded.

    There has ALWAYS been a thread rating column. This one just integreates things like "Sticky", "Attachments", etc.

    >>The additional options go off the page on the reply section.

    More like your browser is pushing them off the page.

    >>All of the new icons are hideous.

    About 70% are the old icons.

    >>The cells on the forum list need more padding or at least need to be evenly spaced, as they look all wonky.

    The only thing I'll agree with. The cells everywhere need a bit more padding, IMHO.

    I agree. The webmaster has done (and still doing) a great job. I don't see any strong reason to change it back.

    except now its an ugly beige thing within a big ugly sky blue box.

    And another page loading. in the upper-right hand corner you have an option to collaps it. Use it instead of complaining about its existence.
    There is no option to turn it off completely

    There has ALWAYS been a thread rating column. This one just integreates things like "Sticky", "Attachments", etc.
    Yeah but now it takes up space and contributes to the overall ugliness.

    More like your browser is pushing them off the page.
    Because the page is too big. My resolution is 1280x1024 there is no excuse for that sort of size.

    About 70% are the old icons.
    I have no problem with the old icons, the new ones suck ass.

    The only thing I'll agree with. The cells everywhere need a bit more padding, IMHO.
    yay

    Riiiiight. I'm running at 1152x864, and my browser window is about 800x600, and it still looks fine. Nothing's getting pushed off the page. Your browser is just wonky.
