I agree that the quick reply and for that matter the preview  boxes both have very large type on my computer screen. 
This makes it difficult, especially in the Quick Reply, to see more than two lines at a time.

I notice that in the preview box I can see 6 lines which is better but perhaps the type size in both boxes could be made to look slightly smaller?

I have had to log in everytime too..New software, probably some bugs to works out...Overall It seems to works fine but it does look very Generic in layout...Probably better for supporting the mobile devices that people run around with today...Think of it this way, the IT Admin guy is working for his money this month :)..
Oh Magoo you done it again

Yeah, I shouldn't complain. When it comes to puters I'm as dumb as a rock. This is a great forum. I'm gonna try and post a photo of my one of my bikes to see if I can do it lol.

I would like the smaller screen back. This one requires far too much scrolling around, especially when trying to post something and you have to scroll up and down to edit anything, then scoll again to post it. Waaay too much scrolling required.

The look is different but the basic function is the same for me so I can deal with it.

I hope a future improvements lets me choose background colors like the old red.

 Its gray sky's here for 6-9 months out of the year so the current gray I have on my screen is my last choice.
I can break it better,,,,at night, in the rain, on the trail,, 20 miles from nowhere.

For the record, each morning I have to log into the site but if I leave and come back later in the day I'm still logged in.  I do not officially log out during the day or in the evening.  I just go to other sites.
It appears the forums server resets itself each night and forgets who was here the previous day.

Weird... I had to login the first time I saw the new forum , but it has kept me logged in ever since.

I have had to log in everytime too...

@Greenmachine:

There are two places for LOG IN that provide slightly different settings.

1.  On top right - 'Welcome Guest'

2.  On the black bar that has 'Home' 'Help'.......'Calendar' 'LOGIN'

If you click on 2nd option, a small window opens that allows you to set 'How many minutes to stay logged' or 'Always stay logged on'.

Rhett and Kevin,
The biggest issue I have is with the new dark grey font color against a light grey background. I would respectfully request that the font color be changed back to black.

It is definitely easier to read black on white font, especially on a tiny cell phone screen or on an iPad in bright light.
