I just logged onto the T800 Forum, and they have changed the look dramatically. Its like being shouted at in multicolour.
I know these things need updating from time to time, but really....

The Trophy (1215) forum, yes I am a member  :icon_redface: , has had a big revamp too and while perhaps not in the same Technicolour, it's not as comfortable an experience as the previous incarnation. What's going on  :icon_scratch:
I used to have long hair, took acid and went to hip joints. Now I long for hair, take antacid and need a new hip joint

It's been updated to reflect more modern tech, ie Mobile platforms. Having referred to the Admin as a Snowflake for removing my post complaining about it, I am awaiting a decision on a permanent ban.

Independent cross party enquiry  :bad I have been censured for mentioning that there were two previous models of the Trophy  :bug_eye

OK, so I'm now being actively Moderated for postings, as I am obviously untrustworthy, and have an opinion... That Forum is no longer on my Favourites bar, find the new look challenging, so at least I'm still able to participate if I want..
Price of progress I suppose...

I haven't been on the T800 forum for ages. To be honest, the design of the Tigertriple forum has become a bit stale and it could use a bit of an update. Though I would like to keep the 'forum' feel and not make it a technicolour dreamscape. ;)

The problem to me is it appears focussed on the mobile platform look.
No problem as such, but there seems to be no option for changing the look to me as a pc user.
Appreciate it's a balance, but the lack of choice is disappointing, and the mobile look is fine, if you look on a mobile device.
The best example is Reddit, where the "new" look is mobile platform biased, but the option to maintain the "old" look, is much better for me as a predominantly PC user.
