    The new design actually seems pretty good so far; it adds new features in while still keeping the look and feel of Black Hat World that we're all used to.

    Features I Like:
    • Profile images of the person who started the thread appearing next to the thread.
    • The new Alerts system is great since so many peopel have complained about this not being a feature in the past.
    • I see "Hobbies" has been merged with Bios, which is fine with me.
    • The forum feels "cleaner" overall.
    • Forum statistics looks like a great new feature.

    Features I Don't Like:
    • The question mark for users without profiles (it makes the user look dubious).
    • "Post Count" being replaced by "Messages".
    • Maybe its just me, but I feel as if using "Likes" instead of "Thanks" would prompt more people to treat BHW like their own personal Facebook, which is already a minor problem here.
    • Banners loading right next to each other is annoying.

    Questions:
    • Will BHW maintain its current ranking system (e.g., 2,000 posts with red stars under the name, or blue usernames for Jr. VIP members)? If not, then what will then new ranking system be?

    The current ranking system will remain wrt colors the stars may be removed, it's under consideration at the moment. BHW do you love your stars ?

    I personally like the stars, although I feel like the star graphics and the system could be updated (perhaps an additional star or star set colour at 5,000 posts to distinguish those members?).

    I love the stars too.. would love to see them stay. The likes point you make about Facebook made me laugh because it's true.. But I don't see it being a major issue.


    What about re-adding the reputation system Damien? Just kidding :D
