    At first I am going to admit I did not really like the new layout for the site. The more and more I use it the more I am liking it. In fact I think I like it much better than the previous layout. I just wanted to say thank you to all of the hard workers who put together the new BlackHatWorld. I think you guys did a damn good job! Still by far the best website on the internet in my opinion. Anybody else agree with me?

    Ya, I too hated it at first (like I do with most new things). It has definitely grown on me quickly and I absolutely love some of the functions on the new one. The only thing I hope to see back would be the thanks button being bigger and more like the old one and also showing all of the thanked users below each post.

    Yeah that is something that I am not a fan of as well. Maybe if we all talk about it enough they might increase the size off the thanks button. If not its something I can get used to I guess.

    I honestly like the new design. It feels more user friendly.

    the main issue now is the crappy thanks button area, compare it to the image above and look how clunky and lame it is haha

    With that thanks area, the new forum layout would be epic.

    I ALWAYS hate it when forums or websites change. You then get accustomed to it, and then you think it's the best thing since sliced bread.

    Agreed. And it can be altered further so BHW has it both ways and noone is offended.
    You keep it like it is right now.

    But you make it hover sensitive. So instead of clicking you hover over "list" then it shows you a horizontal list. You can also give options for vertical & horizonal. Click = vertical list, Hover = horizontal list.

    I just don't like the clicking part.

    Once you soak it in for more than 5 minutes you get used to it.

    It's growing on me as well - lots of cool new functionality is the best thing - plus much easier to use from mobile.

    do agree with this suggestion, it will be good from a design point of view also if this is made green.

    I am not very happy with this ..I found old form of forum was much much better ...and majority of guys i have talked with me call it as sheer mistake which should be rectified...
    I would request Damien to bring back old form of BHW, rest you are the best judge.
    Old form of forum looks more real and this new one looks like another forum whose name is somewhat similar to BHW, hence keep it original bring back old form of forum.

    a honest opinion

    Thanks

    Hate is a strong word, but I preferred the old forum layout more.

    I definitely like the new layout, it's a lot cleaner in my opinion and definitely easier to use. Plus the forum is now much easier to use from mobile, which is also a huge advantage.

    I still can't get accustomed to this new layout. I think that there should be some slight changes like the Thanks button and the "red" "green" color for online users. The message system is a bit strange for me as well.
