Chrome is giving me a warning that the site is trying to load a script from a non-verified source.

I was able to login in after my third attempt, hopefully that gets sorted out. So far I do see the "mobile" look some people have mentioned. Will be something to adjust to in time...

Sorry but this is terrible. Everything is huge. Is this the mobile version showing on my desktop?

Make EB run smoother and have less bugs, don't make it look different, it was perfect before.

Yeah, this feels off. Feels like its oversized for the page and makes it difficult to see. If that makes sense

keep having to login repeatedly while navigating

certainly has a mobile feel... lots of wasted space viewing on desktop. the banner & logo at the top takes up a third of the page.

Sorry you're not enjoying it. Unfortunately there was no way to keep it the same while upgrading the software as the new iteration of phpBB has changed a lot. The old style files were no longer compatible as well as having lots of security vunerabilites. We had to upgrade for security and functionality.

The good news is we're not permanently set on this style though. We're trying to get something familiar and workable for the time being but will look to the possibility of change in the future.

What do you feel is oversized? Can you expand on that?

Logged out on the forum? That should be fairly stable its just the DB login we're working on.

Banner and logo shouldn't be taking up that much space. Certainly doesn't on mine. What resolution are you running at?

1920x1080

*and maybe the banner takes up 25% (not a third).... still a lot of black with a large logo.

This looks like another "optimized for smartphone" interface. Hate when companies change to stuff like this. I'd prefer things smaller like they used to be instead of magnified like I'm 80 requiring much more scrolling. This thing is ugly on the eyes. Yall doin too much.

Ok.. Well that's definitely something that can be sorted.

I hate having to click the "quick links" drop-down box to see "new posts" and "your posts." Shortcut buttons aren't there either. Hard/slow to navigate.

Is this a permanent change or something that we're voting on? This is the kind of thing that will cause some people to stay away.
