    Ever since the new changes, viewing recent threads is been a PITA, I had it to where I can only view non marketplace threads, now I have so many spammy threads its not worth it to come on here to try to sift through all sales threads.
    I used to spend hours a day on this site, now I spend at most 20 min a day. The redesign sucks and reminds me of the site Upwork when they rebranded. Hopefully the owners will change it back...

    Admin Edit - you can edit your alert preferences here. And watched thread and watched forums are managed from the left nav on this section.

    You may not like it, it's your right, but you'll be used to it and I think you will appreciate in the future. I think there is some good improvement on the PM fonction and the alert system

    Oh yes, let's change the forum software back because you don't like it. No one is forcing you to use BHW, so if you can't appreciate the work of the BHW team..sling your hook.

    There's been tons of work and dedication that has gone into this, how about show some gratitude.

    I thought Op was referring to that nice society that wants to give animals the right to marry humans and vote and stuff.

    Don't hold your breath.

    This revamp is one of the best things that has happened to this forum in the last few years.

    There's a section called "Watched Forums". Put a little work into it, include the forums you want to see and exclude those you don't, you don't necessarily need to opt for notifications. So practically it will solve the purpose of what you want.
    It would make more sense than whining because of something, which is the past and never come back.

    I used to not like it but after a couple of days of browsing the forum, I was beginning to like it. Now I don't even remember the old theme anymore. I just prefer the white theme now because it doesn't cause too much strain on my eyes.

    Functionality sucks? Dude, you need a reality check. XenForo as a platform has a bazillion better functions than vBulletin.

    The design is virtually the exact same as the old forum...in those 5 minutes it took to write this post you could have easily learned the ins and outs of the new platform.

    Frankly speaking, I love the speed of the new version. It's just the UI that will need to get used to. There are some sections that I personally do not like.. for example the way that a user profile is shown in the threads, and the thanks list. Also, in the settings section, the three column layout looks upright ugly to me. Other than that, I have nothing to complain what so ever. It's looking awesome!

    Abuse of your fellow members isn't acceptable you have received a warning for this.

    You can edit your alert preferences here.

    Checking your history, you're on the site more now than you were in the previous 6 months so we're obviously doing something right?

    Call out the admin crazy, Way to go :)
    At the end of the day whether BHW is yellow, pink or black with X or Y font, does it really matter ?
    The point is to give you an opportunity to make money online.
    Many people would read the 7878 or some of BTB methods on a white background with a whitefont sized at 1 if they needed to.

    As for the new version being worse than the old version, well, you're entitled to have an opinion but I disagree with it which is also my right and the right of others too. Honestly, I think if you spent 30 mins navigating around the new layout and experiencing the new features you'll like it more than the old version. That is exactly what I did.

    Remember, everything changes and people need to adapt or walk away from what has changed. That is your right but it would probably be a shame if you walked away after spending so much of your time here in the past.

    Stick with it and I'm sure you'll like this version better than then other version.

    That reply is pure class :D

    You can't please anyone.

    I'm fucking loving BHW 2.0, there are niggles but I'm sure they will get them sorted.

    I can't wait to see it develop over time. This is just the start and its already an improvement on vbulletin
