    Please implement a more modern graphical design / texture for this new software, like other forums do for example the Combat Ace community, War Thunder, IL-2 Sturmovik, Elite Dangerous forums.

      +1 for the update being hideous

        The old forum allowed me to see which forums had recent posts. Now I have to go inside each individual forum to see if there have been any recent posts, and it's much harder to see what's new and what isn't.

        Visually, the forums look like something I used in the 2006~2009 time frame, and functionally this text box where I'm typing now is akin to the online university class forums I used in the same timeframe. It's outdated rubbish.

          I was wondering what was going on with the layout. This new layout is not in the least bit user friendly. Change it back!

              Hopefully it's just a case of them rebuilding the... I think they are called stylesheets for the forum?

                    When I first saw this I thought there is a technical issue, knowing now this is intentional I can only say "how could you?" Please put your efforts in getting modules ready, bugs fixed, new features into planes, but not into forum "improvement" which is anything but an improvement.
                    Man, the results of this poll could not speak more clearly.

                        Signatures and avatars can be enabled by clicking on your profile to the top right -> User Settings -> Account -> then find 'Conversation Detail Options' where you can enable/disable avatars, signatures and your own signature.

                        There's a blue button to the left of individual threads that allow you to quickly see the latest posts, but you have to actually be in the respective forum/sub-forum to see them.

                        Agreed, I'd rather have the subforums listed like they were previously, with the latest post shown.

                            I liked the old one, easy to find my way around and looked good. This new one looks like a step backward.

                              But it isn't. Boy are we a conservative lot. The old forum was a pain to read on a mobile device. This isn't. It was a pain to maintain and secure. This one most likely isn't. It's called progress buddy. And yea, that entails change.

                                Hope they fix this pre-alpha of an ugly azz forum.

                                  seems fine to me, just as easy to navigate as the old one, same categories, just looks different.

                                    It looks horrible. It's not fine, and a huge downgrade for the users. I don't care if the backend is better, they should trim down the wasted space and return to the old color scheme.

                                    I couldn't care less for mobile, either. Phone users should get their own site. Flightsims are played on beefy PCs with widescreen monitors.

                                      The only way to make sense out of change is to plunge into it, move with it, and join the dance.

                                      It needed to be updated due to reasons on their end. They are probably getting feed back by those that are not complaining and moaning and will change it as and where needed.

                                        I really hate to tell, but from a professional (20 years of webdesign experience on my belly) as well as a users POV, this is the most horrible thing i've seen in quite a while.
                                        There's so many basic design and usability principles punched right in the face it literally made my hamster.exe stop for minutes. I didn't know where to start, it's been overwhelming.

                                        Really, please: either try to revert to the old design, which was quite okay or find another theme that shows relevant information in a clear, condensed way. This in all seriousness is nothing i want to visit several times a day, not even several times a month and it's no case of "you need to get used to it, take your time".

                                        After recovering i thought i visualize for better expressiveness. That's just the very first things i recognized without really using the forums at all.

                                        I like the ‘like’ function but yeah, it seems useless, I want to see the latest posts, mainly, is there a new update, if there isn’t an update and it’s still the one last Saturday or Wednesday or for Igor RIP, off the forum until I have time to get on my desktop and look at specifics

                                        why fix something that wasn’t broken?
