    Sorry, I don't like it at all. It's very difficult to follow...... :lipwobble: The old layout was so easy on the eyes and simple to understand. :sigh:

    And what on earth is all this stuff....."Insight Experience" :unsure:

    This is going to take a but of getting used to, I'm sure after a few days it will be like the old layout never existed.

    Awww give it a chance :) it's the same basics as always, you see a thread title and click on it and you'll see the posts :) you just need to get used to it (and give us time to get the graphics done :)

    "experience" is a little game that most of the new forums based on version 4 have installed. You can completely ignore it if you like :D but basically everything you do like replying to a post, starting a new thread earns you points and various levels of achievements. It's only a bit of fun and can be completely ignored if you don't fancy it :)

    I think so :yes: it looks a bit drab to my eyes at the moment since these are the colours that come with it. We need to Disney it up a bit :) and Josh is working on that for us all

    Ooo I should say, feel free to make suggestions.. colours you want? things you want changed etc. We're learning our way around it ourselves so somethings may be possible, others not, but we can at least try :D

    Ah well, I guess it's not aimed at old dinosaurs like me..... :(

    Less time spent on here means more time for housework I suppose.....
