 Cannot add the photo this was one of the main problems that should've been fixed without having to do all the resizing

Had to crop way down to add the photo.
This photo is an example of a company making a crazy and unneeded change to a product , switching the +and - signs.

First and foremost, could we please do away with the all caps?

Easy fix, just log off.

Noticed when signed out its normal, then when you log in its all upper case.  :dunno:

The only change that really was ever needed would have been to make it easier to load photos without having to resize them or use a third party host. Aside from that, the old layout was fine. It worked well and was easy to use for new and seasoned members.

The greys have to be changed. They are murder on older eyes. The caps are downright annoying. The lack of a button to find new replies to your old posts makes the site practically worthless. No point in starting a thread or joining in a discussion if it just gets lost in the sea of other posts.

I've always been loyal to this site but I can't take much more of this. Whoever helped design this new look is not your friend. In fact, this reeks of sabotage if you had help from someone at another site.

Do us all a favor and flip the switch back to its old position.

While I am sure over time this site will get sorted out, right now I for one am not thrilled; difficult to navigate and the formatting issues with the colors and capitalized words.

Really the only thing I wanted to see was a button that took you back to the top of the page, however that was minor. I do appreciate you trying to better the site, at least you care.

I appreciate the perceived need to change, refresh, update, or whatever.  That said, the whole site is now hard to read.  Also, the "recent unread posts" is hard to find and harder to read.

If it is possible and easy to go back, that's my vote.

weve reverted back to the old design for now.  as with any substantial changes, there will be some growing pains at first.  ill get the kinks worked out.  we can probably allow everyone to choose the new one or the old if you guys prefer.  there are very specific technical reasons for the upgrade which i had to make available, but if the old continues to work for you guys thats ok too.

The old is way easier on the eyes and with the new improvements (photo size) and so on it should be very productive. Thanks for all your hard work and continued improvements.

69ChargerRT - if you can do the upgrades and keep (or set new one to) the original color scheme, I'm for upgrade. There is always a learning curve, but the benefits usually outweigh the hassles...

Managing something like this is no easy task, so many thanks and applauds for doing it!!! It is appreciated!

T/Anks for the efforts of improvement... I still favor the old design as reverted to today.
Autocross/road racers go in deeper... and come out harder!

I add my appreciation to Ross for his dedication to this site for all of us and MOPAR's, sometimes things look good at first but the practical application just doesn't live up to reality. Keep up the good work Ross, I do prefer this version though.   :cheers:
P.S. I now don't get any notification to my replies since the change over to the new design or now when back to the old design, the "Notify me of Replies" is ticked still?
