While I like the graphics and lettering, I do not like the way the forum pages look. I used to love coming to the site and it was easy to see what was "new" or had been "updated" at the bottom of the page, now it's very are to look quickly and see what topics have been updated/started recently.

DEFINETLY not a fan of the NSFW ads at the bottom entitled, "other things you may like".... I have the same issue with Yahoo!!! I can't go to Yahoo at work anymore because of their risqué ads. Gonna probably be the same here as soon as one of the ads hits the filter wrong...

Not sure if it's a better function or worse. But it does load faster. That's a plus. One of the things I didn't like about the site before was that it would load so slowly. This is an improvement.

I do wish there was an easy to find key for the symbols used on the forums. What's the symbol for threads I've replied to? I think I can spot the unread threads.

You can use the tools on the main toolbar to sort new posts.
https://www.solsticeforum.com/forum/search.php?do=getnew

or Active topics:
Pontiac Solstice Forum - Active Topics

Stay logged in and all those ads and the bottom should not show.

Having previewed the changes at Skyroadster, this didn't take me as much of a surprise.

Thanks for the effort.

We can tweak colors if needed.

The yellow bothering you?

It's not a big enough deal to worry about changing it, I'll get used to it and then it'll look fine.

For the most part, everything works pretty much as it used to for me, so it's OK, as long as the content is the same and it's easy to get to, I'm OK.

Overall, this conversion went a lot better than the one for our Sky brothers and sisters, so keep up the good work.

You call that yellow? Yellow is the color of the Solstice on the far right that some of our resolution-challenged members don't see.

To me it looks more like Baby Pxxx Brown.

Again, no big deal.

Have a great day!

It looks like you can tweak some of the colors in the User CP (control panel) area. That's pretty nifty- haven't seen that before in forum software.

The pages load blazing fast for me. Someone did some serious work to make that happen. Awesome.
