I'll be honest, aesthetically I hate it: the colour scheme is off dull and uninviting, the twitter-esque layout is great for chat-length post but terrible for any kind of debate.. However feature-wise I almost love it in its entirety, except for the 'respect' system, I rather have had the option to like/dislike posts, instead of liking members. 

And you do like posts. The respect count is just not visible. All they did was rename IPB's "reputation" to "respect", disabled negative reputation and showing the count per post.

Its definitely an adjustment, but once we get some things ironed out and we are all used to it things will be fine.

Was about time, IP board is the best forum software available out there. I really like the feature where you can paste text from a site, with exactly the same formatting options from where it was pasted (bold text, dogs, underlines, etc). A welcoming upgrade.

It's very hard to tell at this point since it's a work in progress. The thing I miss the most is the side-bar on the left, it made navigation throughout the site a lot easier. So now I'll just have to bookmark the forums I visit the most or I'll have to go to the forum index every time.

I love a lot of the new features I really do. It's just the forum skin does not compare to the old one. It was unique and you knew instantly where you were.

 

After the main core features/bugs are sorted out I'd like to see some options for custom skins. Particularly one that looks like the old forum. And I'm not crazy about the way topics

are presented. Kind of hard to read. (Fonts etc.)

 

I'll give it time though.

We've always had IP board. Just a much older version, that was modified and held together with duct tape.

Just realized what else is missing. The flag of the country we are from that was underneath our names.

I'm slowly getting used to it now. Also someone mentioned join dates. You can view peoples' join dates by hovering your mouse over their name.

 

Still teething issues, but really it needed a change IMO.

Not a fan. What was the point of the upgrade? The forums looked fine before. This is a major downgrade.

 You can extend the sidebar with the little arrows in left side of the page  :lol: 
I personally like that it's updated, BUT! it will take me awhile to get used to the change, everything is so different! so my final answer would be, "waiting until bugs are fixed/WIP gets done" or undecided as of now

So the forums are like a Transformer?

 

But seriously, people need to give it a proper chance. Plus it is still being tweaked. Plus at least it's better then what youtube and Gawker have turned into.

Hey wow the long awaited and much dicussed transition has arrived.  Thanks to all involved, I'm sure it was alot of work!!  It's going to take some time to get used to...but bring on the progress.

 

A few recommendations, some have been covered before:

 

- Join date

 

- gif avatars 

 

- flags/country of origin 

 

- suf-forum list

 

Those are a few I came up with.  Otherwise great job everyone!

They seriously need to improve the avatar system. Seriously that is stupid. We have Graven, GunWrath and others making these wonderful gif avatars and yet they're "too big" to use. -____- I still can't use my avatar:

What do the numbers under a name mean? I miss knowing when a user was registered as well. It lets you know whether to give someone a break because they're new, or to just completely go off on someone...

I'm not a huge fan of it, not yet. I understand obviously there's going to be many more improvements to the site though, which I'm happy about. Because currently, it feels pretty bare and somewhat confusing.

This is literally the worst forum design I've ever seen. It hurts my eyes. I'm not just being a douche, it's really ugly and it looks fat and bloated or something.

Absolutely hate it. Visually it's horrendous. I don't know how it is features-wise because I can't look at it without getting a headache.

 

EDIT: Threads must have been merged or something, as this post and the one above it were in different threads. Now I just look like a mook ranting and double-posting nonsense.

Well I believe it's the amount of respect one has on these boards. It's increased when someone hits the 'Respect +' button on one of your posts.

I am also presently undecided as to whether I like it or not; and am, at the moment, leaning to preferring the old forum style/layout; but then again it is what I am used to. :p

 

The new layout is going to take some getting used to; but I'll give it a chance. Obviously things will be improved in terms of asthetics in time as well.

I don't like how the side bar is gone. That was how I navigated the forums since it felt like a quick click away. Now I have to go back and make like 2-3 clicks to get to the section :D

Overall I think it looks nice, but some of my own gripes.

 

-Moderators/Admins no longer have colour coded names to stick out from other members. I want my blue username back damn it. :ph34r:

-The lack of a "Newest Member" function is going to be a huge pain in the ass in the next week or so dealing with trolls.
