Unless you are zoomed in trying to read the front page is nigh on impossible. Threads aren't that bad to read but still looks like you are reading a word document because of all the white, especially when reading any long winded post about Brexit or Ken Anderson.

Sorry guys but I'm not a fan either. 
 
I would have done a bit of user research - perhaps via a suggestions box, a dedicated discussion thread and a sandpit site to trial and get feedback on changes before taking a corporate decision and forging ahead with it - design isn't about designers, it's about users. 

Honest feedback rather than a "knee jerk reaction".

Presume there's no chance of going back now?

You'll find white print, on a black background much easier on the eyes.

All this white  is really hard on the eyes and does not make me want to stay on here for too long. ( perhaps a good thing)

Not liking it so far. I appreciate it is a work in progress but it is harder to read and I haven't found the navigation as user friendly as it was before. Perhaps I have missed something but what I want when I visit is to be able to go to posts since last visit and then only the new posts on a page not the whole page.

And as for more emoticons - WTF! I only use about three and I don't know what most of the existing ones mean anyway (probably an age thing I admit).

Didn't like having to click view my message rather than being taken automatically to my post either.

Definitely a thumbs down from me to the redesign.  ::seething::

Although this post did appear automatically!

How about an option to use the old format?  This one is really hard on the eyes.  Thanks for your consideration.

If you look at the text just below the banner, it's so much easier on the eye. The black background is a big help. Would a black background be possible? Or is that a step too far.

Just looked in and see this it's cold, it's poor, it's bland and harder to read and all this white light will give me a migraine, way to fuck up a good thing.

KP, sluffy and all the other admins and mods. Please put this back to how it was. It wasn't broken so why have you 'fixed' it?

Fuck me, 48 hours later and this shite is still up? 75% of the members tell you they hate it but you don't want to go back to the old format?

What a bunch of arrogant gobshites.

Sluffy, e-mail me when you get your minions under control.

I hold my hands up, it was me pushing for a change. I thought people would prefer a crisp, more modern look.

The aim was to help us attract more people to the forum, but it seems the people who were already here go put off. There was still a lot of work we had to do, but it seems nobody was ready for such change.

It wasn't about the modern look, but rather, the scanning area needed to read.  From my own perspective, it was much too wide an area, with much too white in between... maybe older eyes find it tiresome... and maybe the scanning area was too wide on the page.  Thanks for your time and effort in building this forum.
