I'm unhappy with the page because;
1. 1/3 of the screen is ads. It seems this forum has become a huge advertisment not a forum for the users. They're bright, full size and moving-very distracting. I use this forum for the posts. I don't want to see ads at all. I've tried opting out but found I must op out of each ad at their website, not as a bunch. And some ads say you can't opt out. Is there a way to block ads?
2. there's a tall band of ads at the top
3. 1/4 of the remaining 2/3 of the page is about the poster. This leaves about 1/2 of the screen width for the content of the post.
4. the size of the font is too small

The info to enlarge the screen was very helpful

This new look is the pits. It's hard to read and hard to find what you want. If it ain't broke don't try and fix it.

I'm also seeing "page not found" in the email link. Is this going to be fixed?

Default Adding pics to posts?

On the old, user friendly board, I could add a pic by clicking on the picture frame above. All that shows up now is a URL address. Can this be changed so we can choose pics from our computer as in the past? Thanks.
And I might add the print on this "new" forum is way too small and the colours are blinding. I'm getting a headache from trying to read the posts.

I don't care for the new look. The colors is too bright and the print is hard to read. Also the pictures are too small unless you enlarge them.

Default new format...

Well I typed a short list of things I found disconcerting and a problem.
Trying to post it and it got lost altogether.
My short list just got longer.

I do find the comment about changing back, "that is not going to happen," to be rather abrupt and inconsiderate.
I get it that you might not go back but could it have been phrased a bit less, "in-your-face"?
