    I don't like the new forum

    Hi,

    I just totally stopped visiting the forums for about a month. I came back to check replies on a website review I submitted. Turned out to have several replies, but I never received those replies in my email even though I did the necessary email option change in my preferences.

    Furthermore, I have no idea what's happened lately because there is no longer a notification bar where I can see likes, replies, and all that other stuff.

    Aesthetically, I liked the legibility of the old forum better too. More color separation and narrower reading columns.

    I'm trying to keep with the forums, but without any tool to keep me clued in, it really kills my desire to stay active in the community.

    Just my opinion.

    There actually is a notification menu that will tell you the likes you've received and the new PMs, although it's not immediately obvious. Right underneath the logo, it says "Welcome, (username)" and then Notifications, with a dropdown. So they are there...but again, it's not particularly intuitive.

    As far as the email goes, it's not very intuitive either, but it is there. Above the logo, there's a menu that starts with "New Posts". The second-to-last menu option is a Forum Actions dropdown. Click that, then Edit Profile. You'll see a menu on the left that says "My Settings." Click the "General Settings" from that menu, and change Default Thread Subscription mode to "Instantly, using email" if it's not already done. Like I said, though, it's not obvious.

    I personally like the forum. I think the theme looks great too.

    he was actually making a comparison with the OLD forum... it's a lot clunkier than the old one

    The owners have slowly developed it since the engine transition to make it more visually appealing and easy to read.

    When the new forum first came out back in June, trust me, it looked AWFUL. Grey everything - no contrast anywhere. It was the main reason why I drifted away from this forum and started to use other boards.

    But now it's quite nice.
