    I just cant cope - the thanks button has moved to the right-hand side :-(

    Seriously though, love the new design really! Layout for composing a new message is lovely.

    Just now my avatar looks crap though because its been scaled up. Need to find new one......

    Give it a while. It will sink in.

    Xenforo is more powerful, has a better community and is leaps and bounds ahead of the code that VB ships with.

    Additionally, it offers less code clutter, better customisability, better scalability and more security.

    So it is an important decision for the team at BHW.

    The thanks button etc. are minor fixes that can be re-instated whenever the admins want. Cosmetic issues can always be handled. Just be glad that we're on a more robust backend now.

    If I didn't know better, I would swear this is the old version. The design is bulkier and uglier now. But I am sure the admins will abide to every single one of my suggestions so this will change soon

    I feel your pain - the left-to-right thumb switch gave me an existential crisis. But then I saw a squirrel outside the window, which was cool. Now, I'm completely recovered.

    Yeah the new UI looks little Odd.
    Like smaller signature spaces, Bigger Profile images. and loads of empty spaces if you look around.

    But I assume we will get used to it soon.

    Cheers

    That's therapy in action, right there. I am still looking out of the window for a squirrel.

    I've been here for like 6 hours now. Doing nothing but enjoying the new BHW. It's butter smooth.

    It took a few minutes but now I'm liking the new interface, and features like notifications is pretty cool. Oh and the profile picture permanently showing on the top left side is amazing, it made me finally get an avatar, nice to see Tupac every time I click on a thread.

    Kudos to the BHW team, and congrats @Apricot for being promoted to the Administrator status, I hope you wont stop reviewing marketplace threads now though.

    it'll just take some time to get used to, people love to complain about new things, remember bob with the tank on youtube?

    yeah... pretty sure people got used to it.

    Fastest page loading time is a really significant gain, Interface looks slick.
    The only drawback remains the stars,the JrVIP badge and the ungagged one but I have heard they will work on the stars at least which would be great.
