    So we are going to leave you guys to access BHW without going up and down.

    Let us know what you find good and bad.

    So far you have told us you want:
    1. BST's not showing on home page feed.
    2. Background on reply / post new thread is "too white".
    3. Members past forum posts can't be viewed.
    4. ???

    Keep them coming.

    I think that the theme is great, there might be alot of haters though. But I'm sure people will get used to it.
    As for how the update can be improved, it seems like a majority of the ground has been covered :)

    Here's a note, it would appear as if the threads on the homepage of forum are messed up and in the incorrect order... I think it'd be pretty cool to add a vBulletin feature of @tagging people, I always found it to be extremely neat.

    The rss button found near forum categories are also not functioning, or at least not on my browser. It opens a .xml file.

    If you guys could add a Journal sub-forum within the Money Making forum, that'd be great, it's too flooded with "watch a 15 year old make millions in 6 months".

    Wow - this reply box is definitely too light and needs to be turned the same colour as the rest of the site!

    Apart from that I'm impressed with the update. It's really great - It's not often that a site does an upgrade but still keeps everything exactly the same but just makes everything nicer. That's what you have done.. That's the perfect update I think.. Not like facebook where the whole layout changes every 2 months and pisses everyone off.. It also looks very 'light' and like it will still run at the same speed.. Top Job, really like it!

    Some things I would like though:

    1. Get rid of 'likes', 'Thanks' are fine, it's confusing having two..
    2. Can we get a massive 'subscribed threads' button which is always on top? That's pretty much the area I want to view most..

    Personally I don't think we need the like buttons as well as the thanks button. I think we should just keep the thanks button. Also, I agree with the journal sub-forum, as well as Spk's suggestion for the Pinterest section.

    Cheers!

    There is no clear way to get to User CP - you have to click "settings" which is odd. I think there should be a User CP link somewhere.

    haha im against #1 and #3. I dont really understand why BST's cant be on the home page feed. :/

    Remove the subforums in the BST section, they never get used. :)

    I definitely like the new look + platform upgrade.

    As for the journal subforum, I am for and against the idea. On one hand it could organize things but may also segregate as some of the journals should belong in specific subforums already, and putting them together could just be one giant cluster of a mess (not to mention the painful process of moving them all - as many aren't tagged or have journal in the title).

    If possible, to remove the "customize my profile" link/button from our own profiles (as it seems at the moment it isn't working anyway - unless the plan is to eventually get that up - but that could also make profiles messy).

    BST subforums don't seem to be utilized right now at all. For now, if anything, to hide them until they do become used as it just adds a bit of clutter to the overall real estate that service users enjoy ;)

    The speed of the forum feels great, even compared to last week. Overall, I am happy. However, I was happy before.... so yeah. >_>

    - The new theme is good enough but it'd be cool if you could keep the old theme as well - people can choose from the themes then.

    - Another glitch : Search function is not working properly. No matter what you search for, it comes out as "Sorry, no matches. Please try again".

    - Like someone said above, it'd be great having a @tagging feature so we can reply to different users without having to quote their whole posts. Sometimes posts are too long and quoting them is nothing more than wastage of space.

    Thanks for keeping up the good work!

    Keep this, and add another theme that's a dark grey. Kind of like WickedFire's primary theme.

    Also, add a 'Methods' subforum in the Jr. VIP section.

    Would also like a clear way to get to the UserCP. Also, perhaps organizing methods into their own sub-forums. Eg. In the clickbank forum there would be a sub-forum for ClickBank methods such as meathead's method etc...

    Decreasing the font size of thread starter and thread start time on home page would be nice. It's same or even bigger than thread title so it makes it harder to read through thread titles.

    I like the in-post theme settings, it's easier to read then before but homepage is hard to read.

    Agree with the ease of the old layout to access your Cp. This new layout will take some getting used to but everyone will eventually.

    I completely don't like it. Actually we can't find what is the thread or by whom or when posted. All are same. Messed all things. Actually at leaset font color should change to see the difference.

    I'm sorry but I'm not digging the bunch of numbers on the footer. They seem odd and misplaced.
