The New Board Format Sucks Big Time

25 posts in this topic

I sure hope this is just some Halloween temporary joke. At best this should just be an optioon. If the intention is to completely change over to this, then you have to offer the old format for the users who are used to it.

Dark Background and black type makes for much smaller looking and much harder to read posts. It is so hard to read after 3 mins I am starting to get a headache and I am being forced to squint.

I don't need this header either It is already in the drop down menus up top why redo it in each post?

for jumping to different areas at the top and predominant because I rarely use them if ever.

Who wants or needs to jump from posts to the blog or video section so often they need a direct link?

I'll be gone if this is permanent and I can't get the old format back.

Use the mobile setting.. it bearable that way

I thought is was a temporary formatting issue... but if permanent, its brutal.

This is brutal. I reloaded the page a few times thinking it was a glitch. I really hope that this is a problem with the site and not actually the new design.

Aside from this new board format being ugly to try and read, it is not user friendly at all...

Probably should have waited until April 1st to try out this new format because it is nothing more than a bad joke...

It's horrendous... Please fix it...

When you go to reply the post is black lettering on white background so readable. Black on black doesn't cut it.

I'll spot check but I'm gone until the old format returns.

Wow, this is BRUTAL! Couldn't even figure out how to comment? This is "fast reply"??? How is it faster?

Definitely a formatting issue with the script. Kinda like when you log in and put an incorrect password in. Hope this gets fixed soon!!

The IP mobile version isn't any better either. I HATE IT! Don't even use it on my phone, although for the time being, it is easier to read then this garbage!

But I supposed one could press Shift + Alt + PrtScn and make the type white by putting their computers on "high contrast". It actually looks kinda cool!!!!

I thought there was something wrong with my computer.

In what way at all is this format better than the last one? It must be all on the programers side because this is just brutal.

I honestly don't think I can come back on here anymore. This sucks and is annoying to navigate. I don't understand why they have to change what's working. Well, I don't mind a little change, but something this drastic. Too much. I hope they change it back to something closer or more user friendly. Probably a new tech wanting to put his own mark on the whole system. This is lame!

I thought my computer was off, so I restarted it.

The real 1 is back.

Man, that BS was annoying. It looked as bad as a fat woman in a short skirt. :wacko:

Sorry guys, looks like the message board skin went and exploded.

Hope its working okay (enough) now...

Seems fine now. Thanks Peeps. :)

Just because the NHL, you Teams, and you Owners, can screw around with our season, doesn't mean you go and chop up the one place we still have somewhat of a community for our team.

It still needs fixing. It's ugly as well done steak.

I'm experienced with other forums and boards.... so I'm not totally confused but what's up with the blue? I like blue.... should add some copper :wub:

I'm an oldie.... back in the day at 07 the board was much nicer....

Think I seen three changes by now, fourth if I'm counting this....

I miss our old swears, George Bush.

We will be launching the newest version of IPBoard (3.3.1) in the few days along with a spanking new Flames theme. We know it doesn't look good right now but please be patient while we get this fixed! Thanks!

On the mobile site I can no longer jump to the last page of a thread (you can still click on the last page, it just doesn't direct you there). I have to scroll through each page which is annoying and time-consuming. Anybody else having this problem or is it just me and my pesky phone?

I am not posting on a phone and have no problem clicking the last page(3) on another threads page listing at the top and getting directly to that last page.

Hope that helps, maybe someone who posts with their phone can zoom in a bit on your problems.

How are the upgrades coming along? Your few days just rolled over 2 months.

Edit:

Their support forums are running Ver 3.4.2

so your 3.3.1 is already out dated.

Edit/Edit:

Seems they are in the final stages of Ver 4.1

I think the CPC has followed me here from China to Canada, and is trying to hack our forum to intimidate and get to me somehow.
