I like the front page, lots of big pictures to grab your attention. Scrolling through photos is good for the same reason, but when I open the photo to see a larger version of it, I wish I didn't have to scroll so far down to see the caption. Also in the same screen it would be good to just click the right arrow and see the next photo on that list (of, for example, top photos of the last 7 days), instead of just the other ones from the same photographer.
The colour scheme of the forums makes it too hard to read. Also it used to be so easy to quote selected text, and text from multiple posts, but I haven't figured out how to do that yet. I miss how compact it was but in time I'm sure I will adjust.
It's a shame because the forums now feel very generic. Though the option of having a profile photo is good.

Well it does make the tab look very unique doesn't it

But would have been nice to see some of the good old Anet shine through in the new version.
Was actually going to ask for a "Home" icon but found it when clicking AIRLINERS
Great post, only it is too positive. This is an awful change to the site and I may well stop using it very much. The old forums had such an easy way to post comments and log in, a great way to check spelling, and you could do it while easily looking at the thread or the comment you are responding to. In short it was a very functional site. This new site is just change for the sake of change, and much less convenient. the worst thing about it is the 'no post' message because some one else made a post. If I want to change a post after seeing another post I always thought that I could EDIT my post. I guess that's not an option anymore.
Internet sites are becoming more a pain in the neck than anything else. They are either redone solely for the sake of iphones or android devices, or they are just changed for the sake of change. I am very disappointed in the changes, there is nothing positive to make the user's experience better.

Unlikely, demand media are not posting anything other than what they are working on right now and won't even share this "list" of issues that we are "assured" is being worked on or going to be, such little transparency it's almost like they have a minister of information like those corrupt countries.

I was searching for 2 plane photos, I entered the registration and clicked go but instead of going to the photos a pop up came up asking me if I wanted to leave the page I was on! Please stop that pop up!
