Pretty much what the title says, it may have taken a little while and its going to take some time to learn but at the same time it gives a refresh to the whole experience. Looks good and organized.

I like it as well. My first response was "Woah".

 

It's very well done

It'd better if there was only one topic to express yourself about the forums.

I agree. Change is good. Looks very slick, easy to get to grips with. I have no objections, personally.

Now that I am looking it on the laptop, it looks sexy on fullscreen IE11.

Adjusted to this a lot quicker than I anticipated. On top of that, it looks great.

I have some problems with the new font for topic-titles. It's not that good readable if you ask me. Letter spacing needs to be increased a little.

Also the background gradient for each thread-"bubble" is causing a flickering on my laptop. The font-size of the text paragraphs needs to be bigger too and last but not least quotations do not work as they should.

 

Beside of that I kinda like it.

I really like the new format as well. Works well and a lot more easier. 

Thanks Admins and Mods, well done :)

It's not bad at all. It is a lot faster as well. Missing features will probably return in a few days.

I just want my subscriptions back on  the left navigation  column lit/unlit depending  on whether they have new posts.. that was awesome and I could just check the main page every other day instead of looking through loads of pages. Not much  else  I care about but its  a shame that the banner was replaced with something from the gtav.net site.

enjoying the sleek new design. the only new feature i truly wanted 2 see added was an option 2 ignore users. that way when there was a frequent troll poster you could simply ignore that user & keep the nonsense 2 a minimum.

 

another option is: hover over a topic 2 see the 1st few lines of a post without having 2 click on the topic.

For the functionality part, I like it. The design and layout could be better. The post layout is fine, but the rest makes it look like an unorganized mess.

You can do that! Click on your username on top right and go to Manage Ignore prefs.

I can't use Firefox's spell check which is annoying.

 

Need to find the FAQs for this.

I think the rating thing is a little stupid. Mods will get low ratings from the people they mod.

Also I think people will make multiple accounts to make people they hate look bad.

I can't say I'm too excited about the new format, as well as some new features. I don't usually like changes when I'm really used to something and I easily move trough. I guess it's all about time to get used to this one, anyway.

I'm totally lost. 

 

Isn't there any FAQ or a guide about this new overhaul?

 

What about the skins? Don't we get the option to change it?

I believe miromiro's already in the process of getting the newbie guide updated or will soon. He has a lot to update now. 

 

Regarding new skins. This is the only one that could be used as of yet. Based on what I've read so far we should see a few more soon. I don't know when though.  

 

Now that I'm getting used to the update it's a lot better from what we have had before. It would have been nice though if you got a notification every time someone quoted one of your posts.

I thought there was an option for that, I saw it in the checklist, forum Guru.

Hey be glad the track record of this place is that it's slow to update. At least you'll get time to get used to a design before it changes. I'm looking at you, YouTube.

I'm exactly the opposite, it feels like it's been done by Youtube. Removing features and making things harder to operate. I lost my avatar, I can't see where people are from, when they joined the forums, I can't switch to GTA V section for example by just clicking on the left hand side. Really dissapointed.

They'll be back. Those hacks were native to 1.3, this upgrade to v3 just needs to be stable and the bugs fixed to start with. Additions will come.

You guys wanted V2 and you got it. Actually respect the effpet gone into making this possible. But yeah, I agree with the OP.
