    Ha ha! I'm totally going to do that!

    Now about hiding the visual clutter all of you other chowda' heads are displaying in my previously clean margins...

    That's very hurtful. I'm going to go out of my way to intentionally clutter your margins with as much superfluous nonsense as I can possibly muster from a mobile device before I decide to give up and watch Columbo. :p

    This will take some getting used to... some things are better (load speed, overall appearance), but a lot of information is gone from the profiles and I am really missing some of the settings. I also can't stand that friends are now followers... what's up with that?

    I use it occasionally to find a post by a particular member (typically myself) when I can't recall when the post was made. It could be days or even years later. I guess there are still ways to do it, but like most things that were easier, it'll just be more work. :grumpy:

    Thanks, BTW, for trying to make the transition (whether some of us like it or not) easier.

    Those animated ones bug me too. It's why I also have sigs turned off...yikes!

    Does anyone know how to increase the number of replies per page? I can't find a setting for that anywhere.
    This update is sure gonna take some getting use to. I really like the "like" button. Something we've all been asking for.

    Is there anyway you can move the ebay listings to somewhere else its kind of distractingly in your face on this new format. Also anyone else think the grey color is too bright now? Otherwise I like the look of the new forums but its going to take some getting used to.

    I don't like change... But I'm sure I'll get used to it.

    Actually I miss the top 5 posts that used to appear in the sidebar to the right so I could jump to the most recent post in an updated thread.

    Oh, and anyone know how I can set my pages to list 50 instead of 10 or whatever posts on a page? Can I still do that?

    OK guys and gals. Keep posting with questions and concerns. I'll try to answer and round up everything tomorrow as best I can, and put it in the first post. Need some sleep.

    It'd be nice if we could get a free name change with the new board upgrade.

    Only thing is that when I save the icon on my iPhone home page it doesn't show the TFW2005 icon but a 'xenforo' one.

    Then new features sound cool, but I don't really like the new appearance much to be honest. The old one had more color to it, and I thought my browser was zoomed in at first. To anyone reading this I'd recommend setting your zoom to 90% if you want to see the site better, though some of the buttons get pretty small if you do :( 
    I'm not sure why the eBay listings are shoved in between news posts either, that's a little weird.

    I'd also like to point out that the 'Radicons' button isn't working.
    Also while we're changing and updating the site and whatnot, can quote/reply notifications be a thing so we don't have to manually find our comments/threads to see if we've been replied to?

    Some feedback:

    + Everything works smooth en fast
    + Responsive design is great, it's a joy to navigate the site on my phone, navigating through topic pages, back to forums etc, great!
    + Liking the like button :p  Especially needed in the picture threads in the toy forum, where not everyone posts a reply simply to say if they like a photo
    - There is *a lot* of gray. When I'm reading on a high res monitor I'm basically looking at a wall of gray with some thin blue lines in between. The avatar/profile box breaks it up a little, but it's not the full height of the post.
    - Maybe a maximum width is needed? Post texts are now stretched the entire width of my monitor.
    - Not a fan of the avatars in the topic lists. It looks busy and provides no extra information IMO.

    All in all, functionality wise, great!
