sometimes "something new" or "changes" in general may be difficult to get used to.  As long as the content is easy to access, it shouldn't matter what the layout looks like.  We just need to keep in mind, can members easily access the content they're looking for.  If so...it's good.  If not, they wont come back and wont tell their friends.  I personally think we need to maintain a sense of familiarity.  Maybe there should be zombie pictures in the background or som'n like that.  If it's a walking dead fan club...lets see some walking dead.

Siek, I have to agree that while the white appears weird, I don't mind. I trust you and will follow you into hell

I don't mind the white, the text could be a bit darker tho.

my only recommendation so far is that we need the "recent posts" link back or have the threads default to the most recent post.  i know it's only a few extra clicks from page 1, but people will end up just avoiding large threads.  like the welcome to the forums thread.

also, the directory on the left side of the page was a good feature.

not really, a bad lookin forum can make people not wanna go to it no matter how good the news is, ive heard that from many people who frequent different boards, i dont think this is bad but im just sayin that does happen

Bottom line, the new forums are a vast improvement because I can actually log in and post. For whatever reason, I would get denied by the previous forum about 75% of the time I tried to login. Haven't had a single problem yet with the new version. I'm fine with the white background and the font color could be darkened a little, but it isn't a real problem. My # 1 suggestion would be to have the threads go to the most recent post by default - looks like it still goes to the first post by default.


Anyway, very nice work overall, Siek! I'm glad to see the TWFC Forums in good shape.

It's simple and user-friendly. The text is soft on the eyes.
