A couple things

- why does it only show who made the last post in a board and not which thread it was in
- why are my friends gone >:(
- where are the smilies
- why is everything so white
- where are all the posts of the past week (I assume they will come back again soon) --> actually they are there they just don't show up on the home page
- why do I have to click a link to go back to the thread I was viewing

- Why am I a Junior Member!!!!!!

Edit:
- can the text be bigger I can barely read the quotes :)

Wow this is bad. What's up with all that white? It was so nice before. Where is the quick-reply button? Where was the warning that you'd update the forum and change it? Why do we never ever get warned about such things. Where was the dialogue beforehand?

They did say in the development thread they were either going to

upgrade vB (which would have meant upgrading a version at a time)
or
moving to phpBB because its [s]free[/s] the same as bikeradar use

CN can now anticipate Full Retard Sky Events and shut the forum down in anticipation of complete meltdowns. Next time I see the forum is down for maintenence I won't watch cycling

That and maybe the upgrade

But quick reply is back, and theyve turned BB code on, have some patience, sure they will turn all the rest of the things on in the settings as well.

How's your eyes?

Jesus, this new color scheme and fonts are terrible. You can tell it was updated (or rather downgraded) by somebody who does not use it at all.

BTW when I go under Board preferences and Edit display options, I can't change it so I view more than 10 posts per page.

Like most things in life, it is an upgrade cleverly disguised as something much much worse.

A shame, the front page has been unreadable for a while and now the forum is the same I will have to rely on procyclingstats and twitter for my cycling info.

Outbrain is back which is a positive start. Im sure they will change the font size and do all the other little tweeks, not the easiest thing moving a forum from one software to another

Ditto. Bring back the "recent posts" button.

Yes, make sense. Less posts per page = more page views = more advertising money :(
