Well, just finished poking around a bit on the new site. I'm not sure if I like it or not yet, I'm currently reserving judgement until I've tried out some more of the features. So far though, my impression is leaning towards positive. I'd be more inclined to liking it if it weren't for two problems - which will hopefully be addressed as the site proceeds in Beta.
Namely, that old archived forum links and code are having alot of issues, and the fact that I cant change the forum post backgrounds to something a little easier on the eyes than just plain white. Why they didnt keep the previous forum's setup and just add new material, I don't know, though I'm sure there were reasons.
