I agree with Ghosty. The previous forums had how many years to improve? These are the first days, and everything isn't going to suit everyone's needs. The point is, these new forums are basically completely DEFAULT. Nobody likes default. Give them some time to customize it to their, and our needs, and everything will be just fine!!
Things I Dislike:
- Small Font.
- Bland Skin (I realize that will be fixed soon) I actually preferred the IPB default skin, it wasn't so ugly.
- Everything seems to be compacted more. ie: The Categories, the font for the sub forums, etc. I would'nt mind a longer loading time, or longer page, if everything was just bigger and easy to click. I generally browse the website with my finger on a touch pc and it just makes it hard.
- The smilies are ick. Gray does not show emotion! haha.
Things I like:
- The new forums have given room for improvement. ALOT of room.
- Moderators now have it easier. Which means they won't be so pissy when I make them angry 0_o
- Topic Rating System
- The general feel seems to be easier and less clunky.

* Password change is inside User CP. The FIRST option, Edit Details. Its part of the learning curve.
* Offtopic media is outside the KO section. Remember this is no longer just a KO forum. U might wanna click at HOME and take a look arround to get familiar. A couple minutes and u will know where's everything.
* Friends, cant do much about it cause the import didnt pick those.
* Still tunning that. So far Vault, Offtopic and ALL the Market Sections dont count. My guess is some of the market sections were counting, some not. I'll restore the old forum in another URL to see exactly what was going on.
Knight Online (ko4life.com) redirects just to this section of the forum. Go look arround, there's far more sections than KO.
As for the rest of useless posts. I will start deleting them. I GOT IT, most of u didn't like the new layout. 90% dont even say why, just "sux", "dont like it" "old > new", etc. How am I supposed to know what exactly I need to change to improve it? Go back to IPB? Sorry, not possible. Unless u have something useful to add, please refrain from posting here.
I need real feedback to work with. New skin and smilies are top of my todo list. I'll prolly add 1 by tonite and a couple others on the next days. I even found one that's VERY VERY similar to IPB (same colors, layout, buttons, etc.).
There's a MILLION things I need to do. Day 1 u just bitched like this is the final version of the forum, which is NOT. Hope u guys get that in order to understand your requirement, u need to tell us exactly the details. Right now I feel like a Dad hearing his 1 month baby crying and I don't really know exactly what he needs.
Cut the whining and the bitching, give me DETAILS of what u would like to see here.
on the old forum my nick was beepbeepimajeep (i had an admin change it years ago) ... and on this forum it's back to my account name, mcdreamyy. problem is i cannot access all my old pm's, which is troublesome because im in the process of dealing with a few ppl... =\
old one seemed to be better, but we'll see :P
ah hmm ok i guess i have to be active to make new topic now lol
Ta Dev me darlin' nice to hear from you, figured you'd have succumbed to the swine flu by now :P
I my self liked the old one just because i was use to it really and once we all get used to this one itll be that same... its all a matter of getting used to...
ehh well i liked the old forum but i guess this looks aite,ppl will just get used to it
im sure when they fix skins etc it will look great
also fix my name!
Yeah I like it but why is my name changed?
