LonghornRob is now using a Billy Crystal character from a well-known movie, instead of the maniac from No Country for Old Men.

The new icons are still less ugly than the avatars of a lot of people here :whistling:

Well, at least your avatar matches the default forum colours. That's a plus, I have to admit.

The new icons are clearer, even though I'm not used to them yet. They'll probably be good.

Look out for the new fancy signatures too!

Is there a way to set the icons back to their old selves? It doesn't really add any new info.. just makes one more thing to learn to recognize. (And in the short term, makes it harder to figure out.)

No idea, really. Maybe it looks different on different skins, I haven't tried.

It'll take me a while to get used to them, but I like change.

I use purple and had no idea what you were talking about untill I was viewing the forum without being checked in.

The "old post" little picture is now pure black and invisible in the default skin.

I like all of it.



Huh?
I second your "Huh?"

I don't mind the changes and I think they are being implemented very well. Instead of logging on one day and wondering if you're on the right forum because the entire thing looks different, the changes are gradual, even unnoticeable in some cases.

This forum has been the same since I joined over four years ago. About two years ago I was banned from a forum that had not changed since 1996. It was literally exactly the same in 2006 as it was when it was first put up. One of the main reasons for my ban was that I repeatedly called the head mod's bluff when he said that the forum couldn't be updated or changed in any way - every time he made comments to that effect I linked to their forum software homepage and he STFU, but still nothing changed and we were using the most basic forums imaginable (no editing, no previewing, no post numbering, no time stamps on posts, no smilies... the most advanced feature was hotlinks and you had to jump through hoops to get them to work). I recently had a look in at that forum and it's still exactly the same. I would sooner have a forum be updated and changed over time than become stale and awkward to use. We should be thankful that we have a good Admin here.

That said, the sidebar still pisses me off.
