What is going on? Took several attempts to log in. Not seeing any type of homepage or any art for that matter. Just a huge forum page.

Rotten Atom - I think this is just the default out of the box appearance after the upgrade. Things will change, give it a bit of time and let the mods have a tinker.

Melodramatic much?

My first thought was to lash out at this but I'm not going to.

I'm fearful that the tech guys who have been putting a heck of a lot of hours in to sort things out behind the scenes will read the negative comments and decide they don't want to help out. This would be a massive shame because we've got some great plans to bring people some of the features they've been asking for for so long.

I completely understand where you're coming from. Things are different. We knew that people would react in different ways. We did it anyway. We didn't do it to piss people off, we didn't do it to force our desires on others, we did it because we're trying to save EB and make it a better place.

We welcome well reasoned criticism and suggestions. We can work with that. We can't necessarily follow through with all of it and we definitely won't please everybody. The last thing we want is to send away the userbase we value so much though.

Work with us, interact with us, be patient with us. Remember that things are going to progress and change. The EB of today is not the EB of tomorrow because we're going to keep improving. Something people have been complaining hasn't been the case for a long time. Ultimately try not to get yourselves too worked up and try not to make us want to not bother. :lol:

I mean it's a necessary update in terms of the literal coding. The same old layout had enough behind-the-scenes issues to it that we're here now with the new look. If it's not your cup of tea that's fine but even Windows XP support ended at some point. :P

It's been less than a day, I'm sure stuff will continue to get fixed up in the coming days.
