Cheer up, fellow Rebel Riders. It seems that Jeff is genuinely trying to fix and improve the new format. Let's bear with him and see how this all plays out.
I, for one, would really miss all the interesting threads and great information that some of you guys supply. I'll bet the rest of you folks would miss this too.
While I agree that a pre-change consult would have been favorable, there is nothing that says we can't end up with as good a forum as we had before. There are several annoying things that are now gone, and it is responding faster. If you have suggestions for improvements , let this Jeff-fella know. Give this a chance. Let's not throw the baby out with the bath-water.

Oh, there's a "like" button. Great, now we can use that in lieu of responding via actual conversation. AKA the most anti-social feature of a social networking site. I've never used that on facebook and will continue that practice here. Sheesh, if you have something to say, by all means SAY it...I can't think of anything more useless than "I agree with what you said but I'm too lazy to say anything relating to that so I'm just going to lazily click this button instead."

P.S. I also miss the first unread post vs last post/hunt for prior unread posts, but I prefer weeding through all that to the asininity of a like button.

"Ride Safe, Chop Safer" Motorcycles are not unsafe. However; they are extremely unforgiving of inattention, incompetence, ignorance, and stupidity.
Dismantling, sawzalling, and rattle canning does not make a bobber.
Those are STEPS toward customizing, not customizing unto itself.

The real down side is the dislike button. I've seen this used on other forums as a way to (almost) anonymously assassinate someone's character. As stated previously, I think it's a cowardly thing to do and we don't need or want it here.

Keepin' all the left over parts. Gonna use 'em to build another bike!

Yeah, my suggestion is, "if it ain't broke, don't fix it".....

You know....lol.....I almost....almost clicked the Like button.

That along with rating a post....another useless feature that carried over.

Well, I am not yet 50 years old and only own one bike, but the changes came as a shock and were not well received by my eyes as well.

But as pointed out, what keeps me coming back day in and day out (despite not having a mechanical bone in my body) is seeing the interaction between those like me, getting incredible amounts of support and assistance getting their bikes moving again and/or riding safely, and people twice my age and with five times as many bikes and a hundred times as many miles.

It would be a lot lonelier on my bike if some folks decided to quit the site because of a few colours or tweaks (as irritating as some changes have become). Things I have read on this forum are the most common things to go through my head whilst out and about on my bike.

Let's get some changes made as needed, and get back to reading about yet another engine over-filled with oil needing a new filter, slippery roads or the weather, or the myriads of mechanical things that pop up every day.

The Recent Discussions pane is also a real pain, no pun intended.
It barely has enough room to show the OP description of the thread they started...
Example, this thread shows 'New site look and...'
And WHAT?
Why do I need to click on the thread to find out what the rest of the description is?
And why waste the space with the 3 periods?
Also the big red flag showing the number of posts is (3) useless, useless, useless!
Is it really that important to know the number of posts to a thread before you read it?
It was always 10 posts per page....simple.
But since you can't start at the last unread post like you used to, it might be nice to know how many posts you have to trudge through to find out where you left off...???

Why even give the option of "classic view"?
It's just the same crap in a different color!
I never liked the old "new" version of the site, and always switched it to the classic view...
Before when you switched from the current to classic view, you got the original look and feel of the classic view....period.
Now it's just a joker wearing different colored clothing.
