Since there are so many extreme opinions of love/hate for the new website, this poll is being put up here for you to log your vote. Please only vote one time.
What do you prefer? Old forum or new forum?
There's no point voting on this ... we're not going back to the old forum. We can only hope someone listens to what is being said in the New Bike Forums Technical Issues thread and fixes some stuff.
But I'd also be interested in hearing about all the great new features in this software ... it would be nice if someone would "sell" it to us.

I don't really care for the new format. I will get accustomed to it.
This site is FREE for me to view, so I feel that I have no right to complain.

Vote by moving to another cycling forum.
Tom and the rest of the IB crew; if I don't get a good explanation of WHY this new format was necessary and why you think it is better to look at than the old one, I'm outta here. I sent IB a $100 check after they took over the site and that's on top of the money I sent Joe. No Titanium club for me, though. And now this. Great. Just great.

the new forum would be sweet once all bugs where worked out and a new color scheme was worked out

We aren't going back, sorry, and it's for some pretty valid technical reasons. We simply couldn't continue to use the v3.X iterations of vBulletin. We do plan on offering skin options, and even IPhone options and other microdevice options as soon as we have this working right. We're using the default skin for now until we have gotten through the update and release cycle because it simplifies applying patches, and we want to also think out the other style releases for maximum compatibility of code between the styles for simplicity of maintenance, at which point we will start looking at these other skin options for all of you.
I can tell you that the Ihone/Microscreen skin is on the horizon for 2010, as soon as we can allocate the resources to develop it. The current IPhone compatible skins are not compliant with vB4 code.
