    I dont care for this new format at all. Change for the sake of change ?
    How about Admin organizing a member vote on the new format or returning to the old format !

    I'm sorry you aren't happy with the new format. I'm afraid it's not up to a community vote.

    Is there some kind of error : I cannot view the original post here or anywhere else ?

    Seriously morrobay.. This one is much better (other than some small things).. you'll get used to the way it looks.

    I don't understand your post. Could you be more specific as to your problem?

    I can't seem to post- I get a 'internal server error 500', using Firefox 17.0. Oddly, I can post *here*.

    Edit- now I can post... odd.

    It wasn't related to the template change.

    As the saying goes, "correlation does not imply causation."

    (At least as far as Andy's problem is concerned; the jury is still out on Morrobay.)

    I actually like the new format quite a bit. Sure it's a change, but change isn't always bad; it just takes some getting used to. Besides the new colors there are new aspects of the new format that are quite nice:

    • The fixed maximum horizontal length makes it a lot easier to read for people with higher resolution monitors, without sacrificing readability for those with lower resolution monitors. At home I have 2560x1600 resolution monitor, and with the old format, if I ever accidentally went full screen, there's no way I could read a PF post: I couldn't tell where one line ends and the next begins. At work my resolution is much lower. With the new format, the readability is identical either way.
    • There was a problem in the old format where if somebody posted an image that exceeded the maximum image width in the forum rules (rules or no rules, people do this anyway), it would require readers to horizontal scroll left and right to read any and all posts in that entire page of the thread, not just the post containing the oversized image. This new format fixes that for all posts less the one containing the offensively sized image.
    • There is a new "Features / Image Gallery," if you like scanning through images (see Greg's post in the Forum Feedback and Announcements sub-forum).
    • There's now a neat, quick search field thingy at the upper right of the page.

    Posts are now compressed. Could we get the spacing back somehow?

    Overall the layout isn't that different, it's just been prettied up a bit, which thankfully isn't getting in the way when reading posts.

    And my avatar displays better.

    I meant more compact. In the other board I guess the posts seemed to be shorter, now if you have more than 300 words, it kind of looks like a wall of text.
