I agree with Skippy.I hate to complain about change but this is just a mess, it's actually quite hard on the eyes!

Wonder if this change is due to the Google algorithm changes wot penalises non-mobile friendly sites, or "Mobilegeddon" as it's been called.
All right, so I MADE a mistake! ONE MISTAKE!
Can't a man start over?! Do I have to keep on PAYING?! HUH?!
Maybe I should make another mistake! ...maybe TWO more!

It's a total fucking mess!

You can't see where something is a quote from the previous comment. Can't see half the screen without using the arrows on my full width laptop. Fucking shambles! :ugh:


"If it's not broke then don't fix it" is a wise quote.


Also no option for latest comment rather than going through the board index?

It's very garish. Ironically, considering it was done for ease of use on mobile devices, it seems even worse on them, the bright reds seem to really gouge your eyes out. Hopefully I'll get used to it...

And isn't that the point of having avatars in the first place? So that you can quickly identify the person that has posted. You naturally look at the left hand of a page, not the right.

I also want to know what all the randomly placed tick boxes without any text are all about. :?

I think they've done it on purpose. They know we're a whinging bunch of bastards anyway so they probably thought 'let's give them something worth moaning about!'
