    I bet you took a deep breath before announcing this. The new style is quite similar to the current though and it looks pretty good to me, I can't see it causing a mass walkout as on other unmentionable sites.

    It's nice of you to give us a warning and sneak preview as well, rather than just give us a suprise kick in the knackers.

    :tongue: :?: :biggrin:

    There's lots of new buttons and things to 'play' with :?: Looking well organized, well done Shaun (and thanks in advance) :tongue: .

    Well, that's what I wanted to do - make sure most people got a chance to see what was coming, and have a good idea of when it would happen.

    I did a test-run this evening, and transferring all users, threads, posts, PM's and avatars took less than an hour. :tongue:

    There are a few things that will need tidying up afterwards, but it pretty much goes over well.

    I'm hoping it'll be an improvement - it'll certainly make the admin job easier, and I expect once people get used to the new features most will agree it's a good move.

    Check out the thread-hover feature - click on a forum, then hover your mouse over a thread - see the start of the thread text appear - allows you to preview it without the need to click on it ... neat eh! :?:

    Hope not too many people are too put off by the idea - shouldn't be too bad, and if anyone needs any help with the new layout/features, just PM or email me. :biggrin:

    Cheers,
    Shaun

    Looks good to me... of course the forum, as is, is pretty well new to the overwhelming majority of us, so no worry about people suffering 'culture shock' as presumably happened in the C+/radar changeover. Nevertheless I'll add my compliments to Admin, alongside those already paid, for a job well done - in anticipation! :tongue:

    I noticed that when I first had a look and agree it's a neat feature.

    Congrats on handling the change so well so far :?:

    Looks good, an upgrade and improvement, rather than a complete overhaul into something monstrous. Makes a change.....

    Is there a 'posts since last visit' button? I can't seem to find it.

    I think that's covered by "New Posts" in the top nav-bar?

    I'm still getting to grips with it myself :tongue:
