There was a logical reason behind the change. Last time I checked the old forums was getting spammed. Try to give it a chance and I am sure it will grow on you.

Thank you web admins for updating the forums to allow continued access.

What double post?  :whistle: Apparently my mod functions still work.  Nex hit the nail square on the head.  There were a number of SPAM issues and the stability of the old system was a bit funky.  We all need to embrace change and I've already been on the phone with some VIPs regarding the new functionality of the Forum.  All-in-all it's pretty good once you've taken a minute to play around.  Think of it this way, maybe you will find some functions that you somehow missed before thus enhancing the KWA Forum experience.

Am I even on the right forums? Lol. JK

I think this change caught me by surprise too but I have been playing around with it for about an hour and it's starting to grow on me like foot fungus.  LMAO.

I still can't find my precious emoticons though.................:shiftyninja:

I like it.  Less clunky.  More ability.  This good deed gives me more time to access the forum more thoroughly for information and responding to it.  YMMV.

We have encountered quite a bit of spam bots lately so we've decided to run the upgrade.  However this upgrade is not just a security upgrade but a full features upgrade.  A lot of our custom setting has been removed during the process and we haven't got time to put it back in.  Give us sometime, the forum configuration isn't done yet.

strange, I seem to be connecting better and loading pages faster since the new interface.
I like it, it looks more fresh and clean.
when are you going to change the "IPS community" banner?

Eh, It seems more...bubbly?

I'd say the old forum was like XP, everybody loved/hated it because it's easy design and tendency to crash and get bloated. This new style is like...I don't want to say 7 because it's not quite there but it's not as jacked up as vista was.

I'm on the fence with this style, I like it cause it's faster and easier to load. I hate it because I lost half the settings and all I can is see are new posts.
