Ooo seems odd! I must have got used to all the red before.

TBH the blue doesn't stand out too much when I'm sneaking a look at work!

Still getting spam on here though.

Seems good. Might take a few days to get used to the new look.

I liked the older site better.
It had pictures, and members rides and modifications photos to look at, and links to the Enfield Gear store, and links to the new models for sale,  and The BUZZ, etc.
Now, it seems quite bare.
Home of the ACE Fireball 535 Bullet,  Ace GP Hi-Lift Roller Rocker Head . Pistons, cams, etc. Highest performance Bullet engine mods available .  AVL mods. Redditch 700/750 Twin mods. UCE kit soon.

Great. Now it has the generic look of all the other forums. Is this what you were going for, Kevin?
Ditto on the random thumbnails.  >:(

I like the new look. It is cleaner and less cluttered.

It takes a bit to get used to....I do miss the links to the picture gallery and nfield gear. However, It does take up the hole screen on the computer now as opposed to the middle two thirds. So thats good.

Do videos work?

It would appear not.   Liked the old setup better if thats the case.

We can't allow direct use of the iframe tag but I can see if there's a way we can allow YouTube embeds through some other mechanism...

We did have quite a deluge of spam on here right after the upgrade while I was bringing the garden walls back up. Should be back to good now though. Use the "report post" function if you come across leftovers.

I miss the random bullet thumbnails.

The gallery and Member Rides are coming back soon. They needed a little extra rigging to play nicely with the new platform.

Sorry Rhett should have posted this thread in Forum Improvement bit. Oh well.

Oh and as I'm mentioning over sights, is there a "Go Down" button to take you to the bottom of the thread?
