All about the looks are you liking the look when you have no clue what just happened. you like how simple it was or how more complicate it just got without notice?>
Xenforo has come a loooong way since 2010. I personally and professionally dabbled in Xenforo some around that same time. I will admit originally could not work with it at all as an admin but loved it as a user. It did grow on me and this version we are working with now is really much easier to use from an admin's perspective than the earlier versions where. We are still building out customization to hopefully help it gain popularity with our users. Thanks for the feedback!To the staff and the powers that be--thank you for upgrading from the sadly outdated vBulletin!! I dumped the last of our vB forums quite a few years ago and moved to XenForo, and haven't looked back. People hate change, so "haters gonna hate." And aside from the few haters, yes, it takes a couple of weeks to get used to. But this forum system is way better in terms of usability and once you get used to it, things are faster, easier to use, and take fewer steps. And I bet your servers are seeing half the loads they used to, like ours did. ?
Mobile view is part of XenForo also--there isn't a need to use the insecure Tapatalk, since the forum adapts to whichever device it is on. (We dumped Tapatalk about seven or eight years ago--it left security and spamming back doors on our server and in our forum system. Not to mention their poor support for the product!)
I was among the first adopters back in 2010, when it was still in beta. Any questions on usage, feel free to ask! It's part of my day job (server/forum admin, monetization, styling, upgrading, etc.).
We are still rolling out upgrades and some changes based on user feedback.15 year old post should not be the first things we see.
I actually liked the Old Style better with recent post on the side.
FIX THE TIME LINES.or GET A REFUND.
Our forum has been diluted with something.
In our case, we were running the 3.7 version of vBulletin which I had modified quite a bit to get the resource usage under control--there were some wasteful processes and queries that would bring our dedicated box to a halt. It was such a chore that I never upgraded to 3.8, and when the 4.0/4.1 branches came along, I'd read they were even more resource-intensive. (We currently have as many as 2,000 online visitors during peak hours, but thankfully the resource usage is such that we can still run it on a single dedicated server. vBulletin's solution was to throw more hardware at the problem; that was after IB bought it out from Jelsoft, and I think we peaked at maybe 1,100-1,200 users online back then.)Xenforo has come a loooong way since 2010.

Yep. And it's threaded, so that if you are in a conversation, you can read the entire thing top to bottom, as opposed to having to open multiple messages in the old forum. It's like a mini private thread, actually, and you can add participants easily to the conversation, or leave a conversation.2) Private Messages between forum members is now called "Conversations" right?
Yeah I am also not feeling so great about reading the forum. I think this should have been beta tested under a different URL until they got the right skin and features setup. I know how good this can be but not in its current state. New posts seem to be way down also. That has a domino effect.the good thing I will be more out of this the bad thing is not my loss.
I thought it was a lot longer than 5 minutes?Edit:
3) the 5 minute lockout on edits is not being enforced by the system currently.
