      I was actually replying to a post when the change happened. I was in the old format, replying, and when I hit submit post, I was taken back to the forums "home" screen and a banner displayed across the top that said something to the effect of, "welcome to our layout that is viewable on all devices."

      With that said...hate it.

        I'm sure we will here something soon from the top. There is no way it can stay like this.

          It's a bit better this morning (0630 CDT). But it still has a ways to go. As has been mentioned, this is what happens when a programmer has a "better idea of what's cool" and there's no consideration as to whether anyone else things it's an improvement. Having said that, it's back to P1 where it took months to resolve their issues.

            I understand that vBulletin may push out upgrades that in order to gain functionality, you lose previous formatting. I get that. I also get that a lot of IT folks sitting around at desks will think "they will love the new features when they get used to it - they are just inherently resistant to change." I get that too.

            But the bulletin board market is HUGE. vBulletin isn't the only bb out there that can offer the functionality we are used to. phpBB3 is awesome, and provides some mostly seamless migration. I've used both extensively in a previous career - and a few others as well. Well actually then it was phpbb2, but same concept.

            As much as I love this site, I won't stay with this format. I get random moments to read/post, and don't have the time it takes to navigate around this clunkiness to find interesting threads to ramble on. I hate that, because I am really going to miss Iowa, Emma, Marge, Phil, and a few others.

            I will give it a week to straighten back up, then I will be saying goodbye if it hasn't changed.

              vBB does not force sites to use the mobile style/theme. This isn't a vBB problem, this is an O.com problem.

              If they are looking to improve performance, they will get that because the user base and our activity will drop by 50%. While this gets worked out I definitely will not be using the site as a whole as much as I use to and will eventually stop coming here almost altogether.

                I agree with the rest. This new layout is atrocious. Go back to the old style or at least give us the option of viewing it in the old style. With the size of the page currently, I can only see about 2 thread titles on my screen at a time. There's no Like button and my user interface is pretty much worthless now. Add to that the fact that if you're trying to browse individual state boards, you're automatically put at the top of the page upon hitting the back button.
                There once was a man who said: "Though,
                it seems that I know that I know,
                what I'd like to see is the I that knows me,
                when I know that I know that I know."

                  This is horrible. I can't see who's cool and who isn't because I can't see everyone's join date or post counts! =-O

                    And here I was thinking it was just me locking myself into the 'mobile' version. Glad it's not on my end.

                      I used to work in IT so I understand these things happen, however this:

                        If anyone noticed, the banner across the top said that as of July 8th, the update is going into effect and says "over the next couple of days".

                        Relax, take an O vacation and come back in a few days when this cluster fudge is fixed, lol.

                              Thanks for acknowledging the fact that you guys goofed by failing to test and survey the userbase prior to implementation.
