Typical designed-for-mobile garbage. The most tell-tale sign of who this layout is supposed to cater to can be seen when you look at the numbers for thread replies/views:

Old:

New:

Bro, numbers are, like, complicated and shit!

:decline:

PS: New site looks ugly as fuck too. And where the hell are my badges?:argh:

PPS: Where is the public ignore list? Why can you no longer see who gave which rating? So much opportunity for delicious drama squandered!

Sometimes, I zoom in on my phone. I have never zoomed in or out on PC.

Same. Its weird almost as if phones already a built in solution for dealing with site layout not handtailored for phones so that not every site needs to be overhauled for them.

Weird how that works.

Some complaints are legit. Some of you seem to have developed... an emotional attachment? To a forum layout?

Strap Yourselves In Pathfinder: Wrath
There is defiinitely too much space wasted, the Avatars are especially shit. The thing is that a Forum should be used to communicate, it's not a good idea to lessen the space you have for writing just to show static pictures of a user.
There is a lot of pointless stuff, like the moving avatar thing, or that the ratings pop up when you hover over them. Most of them are so low res that it looks like complete arse.

The text on the Main forum page actually goes into the circle for "there are new posts" that looks kinda shit and should be fixed even if that is not the biggest issue here.
When I go to Profiles the font to the top (Profile Posts, Latest Activity etc.) is barely readable there seems to be a extreme "bold" effect on it.

I really do not like how some aspects of the new Forum move with my scrolling, not only the avatars but the website top is following me. What is the point of that? It's irritating.
There should also be actual boxes on the right, as it is now It is irritating for me, please consider adding Borders and boxes around the different aspects just like the old layout. (Talking about "new posts" "members online now" etc.)
Ranselknulf pointed towards the use of colors, while that is naturally not a very important thing it is part of the codex Identity and regardless of what you actually want to change because you think it's an improvement it is my opinion that the colors should be the same as they are now.

I also think round corners are kinda gay, make them hard and Edgy please.

Scruffy is right! The new look is superior in every way!

I did not tell them to "copy everything exactly as you see it".

And that was a mistake. The only feature in new layout that I like is the subtle gradient shift in posts' backgrounds, instead of alternating between lighter and darker solid colors.
Everything else absolutely scales to your level.

Your ignore list.

The Codex is a safe space. Change threatens their safety.

We go through this every time there's an upgrade.

Yeah but not this time. This time it's worse, because it just is.

The font size really is tiny, I mean I regularly have to crank up the zoom level up to at least 175%, sometimes even up to 250 % to even be able to read a damn word. Are you all eagle-eyed or something? Maan
