I'm using Google Chrome and don't notice anything...maybe it's just FF

Can we please keep the bug reports to this thread:

We need them in one location so we can keep track of things and fix any issues as quickly as possible.

I'll be the first to say I hate it:shrug:

i agree with kansas. i like the old layout better, but like the new body style of subaru, it might grow on me

Constructive criticism
Instead of just saying I don't like it, here's some reasons why:

--Way too much unused space on the right hand side :tdown:
EDIT: I found out from the other thread how to turn it off, so that's good :tup:

--The 'home page' when pressing the logo at the top corner is annoying and makes it more difficult to refresh/navigate; it's just an obstacle more than anything :tdown:
EDIT: Although, the 'bio' of the MX6 is very cool :tup:

--Membership fees increased? Really? There's been a decline in overall activity, so how is a fee increase going to help sustain a healthy membership? :tdown:
--And though I understand the marketing tactic of having it automatically renew yearly, that is going to create some mad conflicts that will likely cause a greater administrative hassle than financially beneficial

That's all for now, but then again, I've only tried the new format for 10 minutes so far

I was just about to post a thread saying "website broken" but perhaps "website downgrade complete" may have been more appropriate. When I click a forum section or thread, that is ALL I want to see. period. If there is an option to turn this framed crap OFF fine, if not the new way is rather poor indeed.

The above posts raise good points too. I'm just gutted that I didn't beat king to saying what he said :
