    No offence, but for using Xenforo, this forum looks like it was made 10 years ago. Someone needs to change their perspective on what User-friendly means. It does not look good whatsoever. Sorry that I seem like I'm speaking harshly. It's just because of my OCD. The navigation buttons look like speed-bumps. The BHW logo at the top seems like it was made just for the sake of having one.

    Just saying, thoughts coming from a person really picky about design.


    *I can understand if the idea is function over appearance, but this is too much,maybe.

    Someone get a mod in here. Let's change the entire structure, branding and design of the forum to suit OP. ASAP.

    I knew someone would say that. What I mean is, Xenforo as a software, has so much more potential.

    Your homepage is cute, that's what I would agree with anyday. I'm sure you know how it feels to look at bad UI.

    Yes but your critisisms are totally not constructive in any way. And you clearly dont know the history of this forum. This is probably the biggest IM forum on the internet and a hugely successful site. Its content, members and brand are extremely well established as well - if you knew that then you would also know that one of the biggest factors in the owners migrating to Xenforo was keeping the look and feel of the site very similar to the way it was - because the huge success of teh forum is built upon all of those existing factors.

    It's easy to use. It's the only forum I use so any change I would be pretty disappointed with

    I can only imagine what the site would look like if OP was given full reign to make all of the "required" UX changes.

    Remember not too long ago, when Facebook would change their whole layout every few months? Sure, it looks relatively nicer now, but it made a lot of people quite upset in the process. People don't like change.

    The fact is, OP, you're in the minority with your opinion, and drastic changes to the forum will likely have a negative effect on those who dislike change. It's not a risk worth taking imo.

    If it ain't broke...

    I like BHW, and it has been the same since I started here.. Don't change anything please! The switch to Xenforo was great and inspired me :D but that's all that have ever to be changed here.

    Happens every time, when something is being changed... people start talking bullsh*t, how the new look sucks and after a few weeks they get used to the new design and everything is back to normal. lol

    So you want something more flashy and glitzy that uses more server resources and cost BHW more money?
