I know it’s early yet, but what do you think so far?

The process of posting a poll is much better here. It doesn’t post until you’re done with all your options, so no more running out of time to post the poll. Also, there’s an option to allow people to change their votes, which I’ve enabled for this poll.

It's going to take some getting used to but I am sure that will only take a little while of using it.

I am taking some time getting used to the different formatting, but I like the notifications better. Once I get everything figured out, I think I will probably be okay with it..as long as it doesn't glitch a lot.

It's ok. It will take time to get used to the skin. The 'following vs friends' is a bit different, but I will adapt. I'll figure things out I am sure.

I voted for #2 because this is the first day and some tweaks have not been added yet. This is too soon to ask the question.

It made your Cowboys star off center. You need to find a small square image of your stupid team's logo to fix that. (BTW that crap team can't even beat Atlanta at home.)

Except that they did.

Things I like:
The look is beautiful.
I like how one doesn't have to use preview mode to see how it looks.
I like the adding of strikethrough.
I like the likes and real-time notification "bell". Don't have to refresh.

Thing I don't like:
They took out the line separator, which I used to separate article quotes from my commentary.

Seems fine. Have to relearn where a few things are but I'm sure it'll work itself out. So far the biggest improvement is the load time. Also, the ignore feature seems to be improved.

Not sure how I feel about not having a dedicated "who quoted me" button, I don't know yet how to limit the number of posts per page, and the quoted post and the post seem muddled together.

I'm sure I'll get used to everything in a day or two.

So far this is much better, seems like XenForo put more effort into this and I am already seeing things I like much better.

I hate it...I want to scream!
My Home Page is a total disaster; I'll have to redecorate.
And it will need to be completely repainted, top to bottom.
Did I mention a bunch of my stuff is missing, not here, gone.
What a mess...Exactly who is responsible for this catastrophe?!

I was used to the emoji selection on the prior platform....these seem a bit tame 🤷

It reminds me a little bit of the old MSN boards.

I'm sure someone as creative as yourself will manage to adapt, and do fine but seriously, emojis look a lot like Twitters'.

“Love” is a strong option. Sounds kinda cheesy. But I’ll choose #2. (But now that we have the option to change our vote I’ll reserve that option. Did you have the ladies in mind when making that option possible? 😉)

You could always unlike posts on vBulletin. It was a toggle button.

Can’t you hire a decorator?

It looks like very familiar territory, like moving out of an old house with dependable but very beat up furniture and appliances into a shiny new place with all the modern upgrades. I think I will like it very much because it's already pretty functional as it is.
There will be a lot of new favorite features but I already love that one can RESIZE ANY IMAGE.
I've been accused of liking pics too much but I bet if they are a reasonable small size there won't be as many complaints.

I can't wait to try out the media import for video.
Oh yeah, the other thing I think is great is being able to TAB >>> SPACEBAR in order to POST.
Much more efficient.

Red did say last week globs and albums will NOT transfer over. It is YOUR fault if you did not save them on your computer.
