Honestly, it may just be hating the new thing, but the homepage and forum pages look really cluttered/noisy. The clashing colors stand out but it makes it look almost like all the other visually jarring airsoft websites. I don't like the floating sections on the homepage, where there's the same undifferentiated background across multiple sections (latest video, front page posts, poll, etc).

The threads themselves look fine, I don't mind the name on the right.

Will take some getting used to. But overall i like it.

Only issue i have is that i usually lurk on the front page, and it only shows new topics, not new posts, or i may not be looking in the right spot.

Did it used to order topics by the latest reply? I thought so. I just changed it. Makes more sense that way, and now finally all of those old reviews I ported over aren't showing in there.

CommieHunter, sorry dude. Other people told me everything "blended together" too much on the old site. It's something I got used to as well, but in the end, design wise I think I gotta go with the flow and create some contrast.

The more i use it the more it grows on me. I went from completely hating it for a few hours, to getting really drunk and finding I actually didn't mind it while drunk, and now I dont mind it even while sober.

I want my quick-reply back... seriously, that is one of my favorite functions in a forum, and is incredibly useful when I'm hosting a game and need to quickly answer questions.

Also loving the new BBcodes.

I never use it so I always forget about it, I could probably add it back in.

That and the PM issue are the only things I really dislike about the new site.

Like the teams, like the attending events option.

I just tried to quick replay in an empty gray box that I guess was where an ad was supposed to be. hah.


Pictures getting cut off. It's just cutting them at the fixed size rather than allowing a scroll bar to be created to scroll over.

Pictures should be resized by CSS. Not cut off, but resized. I did put a fix in for that, but if it's still happening somewhere link me to the thread.

I'm getting the same image cropping issues using Chrome and on my iPhone. On Safari and Firefox the images aren't cropped.

EDIT: Looks like flushing the browser cache did the job.
