    Everything is so fluffy!

    Noticed the upgrade happening last night. Logging in this morning, everything is very "soft" looking.

    Just wondering if the other theme is going to make a come back.

    *Edit: It also seems to be extremely slow in it's responsiveness. Not sure if that's residual from the upgrade.

    Lol, the old timers hate it, imagine that. Well, I think it's alright. I like the larger look because of the monitor I use. I usually zoom in anyway. It looks good on an iPad 3 as well.

    For some reason the constant use of blues makes it harder for me to block off the various parts of the website. I would like to see a few other color templates.


    Also, the site is no longer auto logging me in when I type the forum web address.

    I hate it because I hate the vb4 UI in general. I've spent a lot of time with vb4 and it's just a pain in the ***. You basically have to delete all styles and start over. It's just a nightmare.

    vb4 has actually made me look at other solutions, like phpBB and Vanilla. And the pictograms in vb4... oh god, it's TERRIBLE.

    Very slow for me as well, stuttery and far from smooth.

    Performance has been fine for me. Can't say I care for the color scheme tho, everything looks the same and melds together, no sharply defined sections like before.

    Looks like they've been updating it, or it just looks radically different on my TV/HTPC at home. The forum looks more like the old forums, with blues and oranges.

    Request: See about finding a way to return the alternating light grey dark grey for the forum/subforum/subject lists. A long list of all the same grey background with slim borders in between subjects bleeds together really easily.
