Another forum I'm on (not football related) just switched to this format too. Don't like it there, don't like it here, but I guess there's reason everyone is switching to it. It's hard to read and see. The envelopes aren't distingusihable, it's harder to see what a post is and distinguish it from others, and the quote takes up so much space, why is there all that space in between paragraphs? etc etc
PLease direct me to the location of the NEW POSTS button
Same thing I couldn't find...sooth informed us that the plugins will be back soon...they just installed a dry version of the forum to get it up and running. Hopefully that'll be one of the first things back.
