Not pickin' on any one individual, but let us all try to provide constructive criticism. Just to say "This is bad," is not very helpful to the programmers to see if they can make a subtle change and fix it for everyone's enjoyment.

If you don't like the size - state what size you want. You maybe want font size 16, but someone else is happy with 12, so possibly a compromise is somewhere in between.

You may not like a specific font they way it is displaying, like Times New Roman and would prefer Arial. Maybe there is something in between that can satisfy everyone.

Please don't criticize just for criticisms sake?

*Speaking as a member, not an Administrator-

I too, have noticed the faster page loading, which I like. I must've still been sleeping when the first rollout launched because I see no red print or bright white background others mentioned. I don't have issues with the font, but then I've got my laptop viewing set permanently to 125%.

I'm ecstatic about the homepage. Been wanting that for a long time now. Thanks DriVer for filling it up. As more feedback comes in on what members want to see there, maybe we can have other members contributing to that "1st impression" page as well.

As others pointed out, I miss the colored background & more clearly defined box when quoting. I also miss the column line that split the forum topic from the reply column, but can adjust. I'll have to mosey around the site & see what else I discover.

Change is tough & uncomfortable for anyone. As Mike pointed out, there were less than positive opinions when InfoPop was introduced & then again with VBulletin. It's all part of not being stale & moving forward. If it weren't for progress, we'd still be in caves wearing bearskin duds...& we all wouldn't be here.

Overall I'm pleased with the improvements & look forward to seeing what this new software can do.

How is it one careless match can start a forest fire but it takes a whole box to start a campfire?

I really like the faster loading, but am having a problem with all the different font sizes. Seems to be one size up in the top tabs, a larger size in the posts (too large for me...the post titles are all wrapping around and this is making it harder to read) and a very small size in the right side-bar. This makes it hard to adjust to a single font size that works for everything on my screen. Plus seems the font types are different too?

I might suggest a consistent font size/type throughout...then readers can adjust fonts on their own computers as they want.

I like all the changes except the BRIGHT WHITE glaring background. I had to go get my sun glasses...

I have an odd problem with the pop down menu buttons at the top. ("Forums","RV forums" "owners forums","Photos","Classifieds") On some pages they work just fine. Like on the home page. But when I go to some other pages the pop down menu hides behind the ad. And you can't see or select some of the menu items.

I prefer the font color to be black. To me that is much easier to see.

I don't have a problem except with the dull font. A little hard to see compared to the previous Red. Change is gooood Donkay.

On June 25, 1876. a fellow named General George Armstrong Custer changed his format also, at Little Bighorn, Montana.............

I think we all know how that turned out.
