Can we please keep the bug reports to this thread:
https://www.mx6.com/forums/site-quest...gs-update.html

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

Thanks
Richard

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
EDIT: I found out from the other thread how to turn it off, so that's good

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

--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?
--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 :
