I do like the change on my laptop but on my phone I wish I had the same look, instead I get this mobile version. I wish I could change it to the desktop version. I saw where you can change it back to the classic style, if you want to, on my computer but can't on my phone. Is their any way to do that? If not I guess I'll just get used to it.

You can change back to the old skin in your control panel if you want to.

Adblock... I don't like blocking ads on website I like supporting, but if they become intrusive, they get blocked. I buy my parts from forum sponsors though so there's that.

The recent discussions box on the right overlaps the forum sections on my front page though - I have a 1920x1080 in portrait mode so that's probably why...

I don't like how dark the background of the main discussion panels is, but I especially don't like how wide the Recent Discussions panel is. It makes it nearly impossible to read the titles of the threads on the left on a tablet as that column ends up wrapping to two words per line. For now I've switched back to the old skin.

I had to switch back to the classic view.....the new format hurt my eyes and was harder to skim through the threads because everything was SO BIG.

See the above quote. There is an Esprit there. Just some browsers aren't wide enough to see it. This shouldn't be difficult to fix though.

IMO the yellow is a little too bright. I would vote for a blue of some sort.

This site just cost me about $30,000.
Every time I come on, the orange 400 in the banner speaks to me and says "go directly to the dealer and order a new orange 400".

Just kidding... I prefer the old site but I am getting slowly used to the new site. Now please get rid of that 400 so it stops talking to me

I really can't stand this current website design trend that heavily favors tablet & mobile users. It really looks like step back in time....giant fonts, giant pictures, too much whitespace...

It's like the Jitterbug of website design:

The yellow is better than the bacteria green/yellow color, though white text on yellow is hard to read. I honestly preferred the classic grey contrasting vs the yellow as it was simple and effective.

The blue is the ticket. That's what some other boards I follow use that have a very similar template.

Thanks for working so hard to make this as workable as we can.

MUCH better!


Kind of like the driving environment of James Bond's Esprit in The Spy Who Loved Me.
