Looks the same to me. The font settings are the same as they were before.

Maybe a little darker, better delineation between posts.

What Is That On The Forum Bike Logo?

I am not quite sure what that is, but it looks pretty fast regardless. It may be a lizard, salamander or a gecko. Is GEICO an advertiser here?

The font looks smaller to me too. Maybe it's just a different, thinner font?

There's a big problem with the BF screen width. It doesn't go narrower than about 1200 pixels. A narrower browser width makes it scroll left to right off the edge of the window. It didn't do that before. It re-wraps correctly as the browser width is changed, but stops at about 1200 pixels. It's broken in both Firefox and IE.

The BF width is correct if Firefox is run full screen, but I have 1920x1080 pixels, so I never run Firefox that wide. I normally read posts at approximately ( I'm guessing) 800 pixels. It's much easier to read narrow width paragraphs of text.

Otherwise, the changes look good.

something is different and I can't quite put my finger on it.
the text inside threads seems to be the same, but the forum view, probably not.

Forum view issue here too. Sentences scroll off to right side very hard to read. I have to scroll right to complete a sentence then scroll back to the left to read on....Cycle repeats. Is there a "word wrap" button I am missing?

Agree. However, text wraps correctly when viewing the 11-15-10 site down notice.

Whatever the hell it is, and whatever the hell it means, it's too big, too distracting, and making the forums harder to read. It's like the Peter Principle of web design: keep ****ing with it until it's unusable.

Seriously.

when I first saw it, I thought it was a dog rummaging through a pair of garbage bags.

then I realized it was a cone head on a bike.

I just took over this thread for upgrade issue communications, AEO, and all....

List further glitches, etc, here for centralization.

since there are new icons for how hot a thread is, instead of using fire, why not indicate it with gearing?
on fire = 53x11
slow = 22x34

What's with all the odd looking symbols before each thread?

Can someone pick one symbol to use throughout (perhaps a smaller version of the bicycle symbol), rather than several different ones? It's a jumble.

more visually cluttered - check
unnecessary redundancy in "read vs. unread threads" - check
drop-down menu at bottom of page still a lengthy process which worked three versions ago - facepalm
"find all threads started by user" - fail
"the following words were too common and not included in your search" - fail
