      This is going to take some getting used too and I'm old I don't do well with change.

        We may not like the change but it is necessary to continue on. We will try to keep the familiarities as much as possible.

          I like new things, except for most of the new cars lately.

            A head's up would have been nice. Change isn't always bad but this kinda sucks. Not like anything I've used before.

              I'll refrain from complaining until I know the update is "complete." I'll admit I'm struggling with it too. just figured out how to log in. (turns out ublock also blocks the login menu..)

                Any news on restoring the look and feel of the site? This generic vBulletin thug is hard to read and difficult to navigate.

                    Finally got back on, will need to get use to the new layout. Thanks for taking the time to get things updated.

                      I like it. I appreciate the time put into this. It looks like a lot of work was put into this

                        Thanks for the feedback, everyone!

                        Mike P has been working hard behind the scenes tweaking and fixing, nipping and tucking

                        I feel like he's tracked down and solved most of the "hard to read menus" stuff, and I have not noticed the slow loading in a while.

                        If anyone has additional observations, concerns, or requests, please post them here.

                        Thanks!

                          When can we view the full site on the mobile phone? Used to be an option.
                          when will the link to 'Todays Posts' be established?

                            Good observation. I hadn't actually tried this yet.

                            Here's what I see - the login screen is "blank" (white text on white background, presumably?)

                            Does this match your observations as well?

                              I dont get what you're showing. But I saw you posted earlier, didn't have time to respond, went to the 'New Posts' link but this thread was gone. Didn't know which forum it was in, but the 'Todays Posts' would have queued it up for me. I'm kinda slow and need all the help I can get.

                              and at the bottom of the site it used to give the option to view the whole site instead of the fugly mobile version. I'm not paying much attention to this site due to these 2 issues.

                              so, snap to it everyone, lol, joke
