Pros: Blends with other parts of the website better, posting doesn't take you to another page, and looks like there are more options when posting.
Cons: No view unread page, change can be temporarily bothersome
Writing posts with text modifications like bold, font size, etc. is very awkward and difficult because of how it applies the changes. You'll move to a new line and begin typing and the modifications will have applied themselves, but when you turn them off they turn on again.
Yes, but there still isnt the brighter text to show if a new post is in a forum. These are still horrible to navigate. Is it possible to revert to the old forum appearance? But have the nifty things of these forums, like the not seperate page to post a thread... and whatever else is good about these forums...
