New board layout - I fear change

Post by 666ways2love » Fri Jan 19, 2018 12:58 pm

My eyes are having problems adjusting after 10 years. GURU - Any other new features that were or will be rolled out in the near future?


My wish list - the one and only thing:
Noferin Pecan Pal: Colored version Fanelli
sales thread http://forums.kidrobot.com/viewtopic.ph ... 0#p2065190
100+ Buying, selling, muling transactions over the years. Plenty of references.

I think it's not looking good at all! Very difficult to read and look/see what is new in all the threads! The older site was much much better!

Hmm... not sure yet. Is there any particular reason the decision was made to change the forum look? Change in software or something like that? I must admit I'm finding it a bit tougher to read but that may just be because I'm not really used to it.

Dear all of you complaining about the new look,

The overhaul wasn't done by choice. It was either overhaul the board or get rid of it completely.

Sorry, you'll get used to it.

Dunno that you need apologize for something you can't control. If this is what is needed to keep the board up then that's what needs to happen. I finally figured out how to get to the most recent post from the threads menu so there is hope for my navigation skills yet! :D

I noticed this latency as well. Takes maybe 5 minutes to actually see the post.
Other bug I've had is even after I have read a PM it continues to show I have an unread message.

What happened to the internal search feature? The only thing I'm finding is the "Google Search" box.

Not a big fan of the new layout as part of the reason I stop by is for the nostalgia element. With that said, I’m glad I’m not forced onto social media channels to talk vinyl any more than necessary.
Good transactions with: daimyo, gonedaddyfinch (2x), Cornbluth, dunnydummy, NYC.Parce, fdavis138, eckotyper, NSTNATE, HeyJB, broke4toys, conchan (2x), BabyGerald, Dustygarage, Vinylassasin (2x), bloc115, justalilodreamer, MrJames, Chapper, blackicex, supershallow, geoffcuddy, Jackcuzzy, pugspaw, Fliptrickz916, lui, pys111, twentytwo, topnotchchach, flabby (8x), Rgon81, drewproduces, raphyki

Kaws and more for sale.

Looking for: Michael Lau Fingercroxx

I loved the simplicity and look of the old board. I thought it actually worked well, Ive been on so many message boards but the classic kidrobot board just stood out. I dont know what it is about this new design but it just feels cluttered and i hope it doesnt draw people away from the board. I hope it was upgraded for technical reasons and not just for aesthetics.
