    I've seen a lot of posts since the forum changed where members are saying they don't like the new look of this or that feature. But I'd just like to point out how impressive it is that the forum changed to a completely different software platform and has been able to transfer over the history for just about every functionality on the board.

    This is a pretty amazing feat really, both for the staff having determined how best to do the transition, and also for the XenForo forum software being designed in such a way that so much data and functionality is still compatible. The big benefit for all of us is that the new forum software seems to be substantially more efficient in design which should mean more responsiveness for us.

    So Kudos to all the staff for being able to make such a transition as seamless as could ever be expected from such a dramatic change. As I said above it's really quite an impressive feat. :)

    Absolutely.

    The day the transfer was done, most posts I saw were of complaints rather than compliments. I said that after a few days, everyone would be used to it and barely notice the difference, if not really appreciate the hard work that went into it.

    I'm definetly happy with the updates. The modern look, the active alerts, and mobile version are all great.

    Great work BHW Staff.

    It's just the shame that back-end programmers designed the interface :p
