There’s a lot of convenience of the new format. Ya it took some time to get used to but I don’t even remember the old one now.
Badge system is awesome, it’s a lot easier to track threads with a single notification panel now, inserting GIFs/images are so much better now, forum overall seems to be snappier and loads quicker.
Probably more stuff but just off the top of my head.
So thank you Kirik and the rest of the admin team - this place has still stayed true to it’s roots and you’ve only made it more accommodating for new people to come in.
