    Overall impression of the new look is "I like it" :)

    It looks cleaner, feels smoother and somehow seems like it just stepped forward. It is me or does it feel faster too?

    I think getting rid of all those rotating stars and things next to a users name makes things feel more up to date and cleaner. Where it has the small blue 'badge' of staff member next to Diamond Damien looks much better than a load of rotating stars. This one small change sets BHW apart from lesser forums.

    I noticed that a smaller version of your own avatar appears with the avatar of the thread starter to show you have posted in that thread. Nice touch and is useful to have. It is easy to forget where you have posted in BHW.

    I think that "messages" should be changed to "replies or posts". I see some members mentioned the "like" button replacing the "thanks" button. hmmmm, I think both features have a place in the forum. I have often hit the "thanks" button to another members reply although 'thanking' them didn't really make much sense and "liking' their post would have been better.

    To have the option of being able to thank someone for their post as well as being able to like their post would be nice.

    "Edit Title" on our own threads? Is that feature staying? That would be useful. Again from a sellers point of view this would be of use as we can test different titles to see which better a better CTR. However, I also can see this being a nightmare for mods to keep up with in case some titles get changed to become misleading. However, a ban threat should keep things like that in check.

    I'm off to spend some more time checking out the new look of the place. Great job so far and looking forward to seeing BHW migrate over to this new platform and look..

    Hi folks,


    I agree with most of what OP stated, so I'll just leave me feedback here instead of creating a new one.


    I like how the member's page is set now. Stats at the right are pretty cool. Overall, it feels much more "agile" and theme looks stylish as well.


    However, unlike op, I think the "Thank you" button worked just fine and although adding "like" may not be harmful, I'd keep things simple (like, people shouldn't have to deliberate whether to "thank" or "like" stuff... remember, the less time they spend thinking on these sort of things, the more time they can dedicate to actually contribute to the forum).

    Cheers
