    Same here.
    Just like anything else, I dislike the change; however, it is the content from fellow members that is important to me vice the innocuousness of the aesthetics of the new platform-particularly the color scheme.

    Maybe I just didn't know how to work the last one, but this iteration is optimized for mobile use. I don't have to zoom in on anything, scroll around, or use tapatalk. It auto formats to my screen.

    I thought that this is New Year's edition of the forum, not forever. :D
    The old theme had some kind of warm like "at home" feeling.

    As mentioned elsewhere in posts on the upgrade, the old theme is not compatible with the new upgrade, and the features won't all work. We were running a very old version of forum software. The old theme was a custom theme. We know we can't please everyone, but the upgrade was absolutely long overdue and necessary. The theme wouldn't carry over.

    Here's the thing. We know that we can't please everyone. Whenever we make a change of any sort, someone is going to be unhappy. Some folks hate change and want the old theme. Yes, it was warm and home-like, and we had it for a long time. Well, with the new upgrade, you can't use all the features of the old theme. They don't work. It's simply not an option. So we adapt. And maybe it grows on us. And maybe it doesn't, and maybe we hate the appearance (new features deemed irrelevant), but we hang around anyway because the forum holds 10+ years of fun and useful information and great members.
    If you discover something that doesn't work or works oddly, please let us know. Thanks.

    The layout is fine. The colors are horrendous, especially the light grey background. It doesn't contrast well with alot of the words. Eg. the Like and Reply buttons.

    I'd very strongly support a color scheme change to a darker back ground, even just a darker grey.

    I'm confused. The colors look exactly the same for me.

    If one goes to the bottom left-hand corner below NEW POSTS, one will see "Scratch" with an arrow. Click on the arrow, and one can choose the theme one sees. One can choose the old theme, though I don't know how long that option will be available. But all functions will not work with the old theme.
