    I got this too. We had to restart our classifieds server. Should be better now. May possibly happen again.

    weird pixelated thumbnails

    As several other members in the forum, I also seem to have pixelated thumbnails.

    I can't seem to find the "My Account" tab that showed new thread replies to threads I have posted in / recent rep. Is this feature gone?

    The "Quick Navigation" dropdown is not primed with the current location, making it more cumbersome to go between the three forums I use most that are within one page of each other (Washington, Cannondale, and Ibis). It always defaults to the top of the list now.

    For those of you like me, that go straight for "My Account" to see new subscribed threads, I have only found one solution so far. Across the top there is a "Quick links" with a drop down arrow. Click on that and one of the option sis subscribed threads. It will show you ALL threads you are subscribed to, with the most recent on top. You can tell if it has new posts because it will have the arrow next to the thread title that takes you to new posts in the thread. Not as convenient, but it gets the job done....

    As for everyone complaining about pixelated pictures, the site admin Gregg has already responded to that 2 or 3 times. I think we can stop beating that dead horse...

    Let me get this. We're supposed to see blue on white as highlighted? Epic fail; but it isn't just MTBR. Lots of dysfunctional websites and labelling going on at the moment. Maybe 'Readable' will be the Next Big Thing. Who could have known?

    Ya just spoiled my morning coffee...
    Agreed 100%--aesthetically, this version is hard to look at. It also looks bad with the yellow/brown logo up top. Is there a way to modify the color scheme?

    First of all, I love mtbr.com and I thank all staff and admins for their hard work.

    You're doing a great job.

    I have to say that I really dislike the new look though. It's cluttered with stuff, colors and buttons. It looks really loud and and the ad banners on the right side now take up almost a third of my iPad display.


    The old version looked a lot cleaner. Any chance that there'll be an option for a classic theme?
    Otherwise ai might have to change to tapatalk or something

    Greetings Znarf

    Sorry again for complaining, I generally really appreciate the effort!!!

    I don't like the new layout at all. Please, give us back the full width format. Reading is awful in this new version! I appreciate all the rest (of improvements), though.

    The new layout just looks like the forum has been squashed up and made smaller just so you can fit more adverts in on the sides. A dog turd of an upgrade

    Forum Upgrade to vBulletin 4.2.0 - problems, concerns post here

    I wanted to give you some feedback on how the updated MTBR site appears when viewed in the ipad's Safari web browser. The picture below is the updated MTBR forum alongside a screenshot of the previous MTBR forum design.



    On an ipad there are two main issues with the new site design currently. The main one is that the right hand bar which contains news items and adverts has been made much larger than before, taking up most of the screen. The Wide and Fixed forum settings make no difference to this.

    You also have the giant adverts covering half the content on the side bar. All I seem to get as targeted ads on MTBR is Russian dating sites, US Green Card immigration ads and Twix chocolate ads, never anything cycling related...See the pictures above for examples.

    The other major issue is that the forum text size has increased significantly, so that less text appears on screen at once. For an ipad with its small screen it means increased scrolling to be able to read anything, whereas before you had plenty of text on screen to read in one go (small text can easily be zoomed in on to make it legible).

    Given the choice between viewing MTBR in the ipad's Safari web browser or an app like Tapatalk I'd much rather use a web browser if possible.

    Not to rain on the MTBR New Forum party, but I've normally backed out from forums with this "look."

    A few hours ago, while spending time on this forum, I began feeling dizzy. I'm serious. It might be that I don't like change.

    I think we just have to get used to it and we'll like it just as, or more than,the previous look!

    Possible to bring back the old color scheme? Way too much blue everywhere now.

    Also previously when viewing a thread, at the bottom there was a text area for quick reply posting, now you have to click "Reply to thread" at the bottom to view the same text area?

    And in this text area are now missing the options of bolding, italicizing, quotes, url, img, etc. To view that in the text area now you have to click "Go Advanced".

    Searches seem to be ordered wrong. I pick order by last post date, descending to get the most recent results, and they're all threads from 2004, 2005, 2006, etc.

    Do not like all the blue. Blue, being a very short wavelength, scatters within the eye and causes visual problems.

    Why does this new version have to show up on Firefox with a bunch of wasted space on each side of the active area?

    Hmmm, seems like they've targeted you're top 3 interests flawlessly (and in order of priority too).

    On a serious note, has anyone been able to locate the "rep" area, i.e. where users leave brief messages when they add (or decrease) rep? I just can't seem to find it.

    Is there a way to change the color scheme from the user side? Not a big fan of powder blue on white

    Thanks for having this great site.

    Oh boy, it's an upgrade... not.

    The light blue on white background is painful to view.

    The fixed width is another problem. As if someone with an 7" tablet said this is who the world views our forum.

    Pixelated images are being fixed but this will take time. The old photos are being reprocessed and resized at the moment. New photos are done right now so they'll be fine. It will take about a week to crunch through the million photos but we are starting with the most recent ones first and going back from there.

    Better get used to if fellows, roadbiker did the same thing there as they just did here, sorta like dajavu all over again. All the complaints erroers, changes, colors, etc. I use Safari and it doesn't seem to take on to that to friendly for certain things. I guess they call this progress. I am old school if it ain't broke don't fix it! as they said over there if someone wants to spam us they can sign up and do just like with the old format. Have fun getting used to it guys/girls!

    The blue is a default color. It can be changed. Of course, getting everyone to agree on a soothing color is another question. We will look into tweaking the color settings later. We are still working on stability and functionality issues first.
