I managed to change mine to no longer display my real name after several attempts. This is an absolutely massive invasion of privacy. If this is not fixed within 24 hours, I will be deleting my account.

On the other hand, it is a good idea to have somewhat of a refresh, as many features of the old forums were frustrating...

Personally I would prefer if the posts were on a different background colour than the websites main background colour, differentiating seems to be a bit difficult.
And second of all does every reply need the huge bold "RE: Title Name" above the post content? The default subject of replies seem to be in the "RE: Title Name" format but I think it would be better if that was simply left blank by default.
But I still welcome the new design change overall, finally the forums look modern and not something that was literally from the 90s

When it goes back to the beginning, scroll down slowly to see if anything is highlighted in red that you need to change. For me, I had to put the region where I am, and then I was able to add a profile pic.
