I'd like to see twice as many threads under "Active topics".

I don't care about the few seconds saved by having less there.

The LORD is my light and my salvation--so why should I be afraid? The LORD is my fortress, protecting me from danger, so why should I tremble?

Surely they kept a copy of the White Version before the change over to this yellow format in New Style?

Why not keep the color choices like we had before, at least two or maybe a 3rd choice?

The old colors are still listed, just not available at the moment.
The new format is needs to have a separate build for each color/theme and the team is backed up a few weeks so let me know what you prefer white or yellowish? We should be able to to revert back to the white or maybe a slightly grey background if that helps but I can't keep requesting to switch them back and forth.

I do have one good thing to say about the new layout. I was going to post a pic of my new Candy Red 2015, but as there is one at the top of the first page I don't need to.

However, despite some serious searching, I am still unable to find all the stuff that used to be on the home page.

Tools drop-down menu at the top and select GWF links.

Thank you, had you said to select Quick links I might have found it sooner, but all is good, more or less

Thing is Jeff, it seem like 90% of the users seem to prefer the old look. (Classic) I don't think it's so much the color, but that the new look seems juvenile, like pages from a kid's book. So why screw with the look of the forum just to add some new features? Add those features to the "classic" view and let things be. Seems like that would be a lot less work for you guys, too.
If you want to build something new for the tablet crowd, then fine, but don't screw things up for the PC users in the process.

Unfortunately it is not that easy, this update also addresses some security, usability, and opens up a lot of new features for us that the older version can not.

Once users get you tot he change and try it out for a bit it will grow on them, we have done this update to 200+ site in the last 12 months and people who hated it at first now love it.

OK then, can you simply use the graphics, color and fonts now being used in the classic forum?

I still think that just changing the theme color to yellow would help a lot. The blue bar and white letters is distracting.

Also the member names were larger before.
