    Looks good so far.

    Give it a chance. Dont complain right off the bat.

    Crossing my fingers, that this will have less glitches than the previous version.

    Way more mobile friendly for sure.

    As for the brightness (LOL) - adjust the brightness of your screen, gents.

    If you're on a apple device you can set your device up to invert colors. This will make the white background black and gives the site a much better look.

    If you set it up correctly, you will just need to tap your home button 3 times to turn invert on and off.

    Meh...I'll give it a few days to decide. I did like the old forum layout though.

    No one likes change, but I need to spend some time here before the batching starts. Hopefully once it is dialed in, it will better than the old site.

    I liked how it would indicate where people are from and their forum stats without having to click on avatar like it is now

    No thanks. I have other priorities, or I could put that money towards a new knife.

    A similar type was initiated at another forum (EDC forums) and I never was able to adjust to the operation of the PM system and the way the BST forums worked. What happened is I stopped going there.

    Spark said he was shutting down the Exchange to sort out some issues. I don't know if it's turned back on, yet

    I will give it a chance but not real impressed with the new format so far. But maybe after some tweaking it will be better I do hate the scrolling.

    One of the biggest pluses to Bladeforums was the layout. Its not like there isnt other choices out there if needed. Now add in "likes" and its just a weird combination of a informative site and facebook. No thanks. If anything that cliquey crap is whats already ruining bladeforums.

    Jeeeez. Give it a few hours at least before going directly to BITCH!

    Exchange will be down for a while. Says so right at the top of the page.

    I have a few select forums under Watched Forums. That helps with clutter...
    Waiting on some themes to cut the blue light/negative white and overall brightness...

    Thanks Spark, et al for letting us in!

    Gonna reserve my overall opinion until you say you've turned the final corner on the changeover.

    But here's some feedback to take under advisement from JoeForumMember:

    1. "Like" is lame...I hope you dump that feature lower than whale crap...

    2. The old avatar displayed a lot of vital & cool info... hope that can happen with the new site.

    3. Gotta be a way to give better background color variety...GOT TO BE.

    4. I always enjoyed seeing how many members, and which specific members were viewing a thread at any given moment....can't see that that's an option on this new format...please add it back in! PLEASE

    5. Kinda has a WTF moment seeing a particular member show up in the "Top Traders" and "Untrusted Traders" simultaneously....hahaha.....newbies might get the wrong message, that is unless you really wanna go ALL IN on the pirate subculture! lol

    6. A riff on #5..."Trader" usually implies , you know, trading rather than selling. Maybe standardize the terminology with the old site.

    Thanks for the effort but I can't see anything improved from an already successful format.
