    I'm not digging it, but I'll get used to it.

    The old color scheme was easier to follow I think. I'll manage though, now that I figured out how to make it fit the whole width of my screen

    I don't like either, but I have no choice.

    a. if video instructions are required in order to use/tune a web site client, I begin to worry that complexity is getting out of hand.

    b. i get accustomed to a lot of change pretty quickly, gregg should be able to run it the way he wants

    c. I am denied access to the how-to video link, doesn't do much for me that way.

    Go to setting / general settings / format skin and change it to wide.
    The narrow look was driving me crazy but found this in the settings and all is better.

    There's a quick access drop-down on the lower left of the page, when you are in a discussion forum that also will let you set it to wide mode.

    ^^this.

    It is monochromatic. Everything seems to blend together on the main forum page. I feel the font is too small as well.
    Stay aware of those who hide in plain sight.

    Sucks!!!!

    It is like doing homework (being online now)---

    old website you liked being on and surfing.. Also everytime I make a post it crashes (webpage is WHITE and I just get a letter 'V' in the tab next to a webpage that stays blank!!!)

    very frustrating now.. The old color scheme (and Font sizes were much better!)

    --i don't go on as much (and certainly don't stay on long now!)-----pass this on to 'Those in charge' of this...

    --This was an example of 'If your car is running fine--don't need a tune-up!'-----and mess something up!?!?!?

    P>S>----You could see Private Messages already listed on past layout (you have to go to private messages here)--ALSO you could see the page numbers of the thread before--now you have to go to the First page, then navigate---THAT SUCKS!!

    I don't get online at all now------For something that was not broke (MTBR made it worse!!!)

    I agree with the thumbs down. Just plain boring. I look at enough black and white stuff on my computer for work. Now this. I use to go on Mtbr at least everyday for at least an hour. Now the time is cut way down. Maybe 15 minutes. I see myself spending more time on pinkbike.
    LOVE THE RIDE!

    The new look MTBR.com

    I would rather the content of the forum be the draw, than the window dressing on the forum.

    So I am in favor of the current layout over the previous.
