I have to say that i am disapointed. You must be the most brilliant minds in computer programming.
So why are you satisfied with the average? Orange/Black? Images not properly fit in the box?
Low size-quality PNGs? Its 2010 and there's not even one 3D element? I expected to see
an interface like the one used in the movie: Gamer. A 3D user-friendly interface that allows
multi-chat conversations. Its NOT fiction so why NOT? Why not to be the first one that could even
create a 3D fullscreen flash/application.

Rather than complaining, how about taking a screen shot of where you see a problem and posting it in the featured thread on the homepage about the new forums. That way we can fix it :) Everyones browser is handling the CSS a bit differently, and everyone needs to hit REFRESH to get the latest CSS.

Im not complaining about the new additions. Its just that im already bored of them as i was with the old ones. Although there are some interesting elements. What i cant understand is the difference beetween "Fast Reply" and "Full editor". Just the "Add An Attachemnt" option? It doesnt make any sence. Why should i navigate to another page (+wait for a second to load) for replying when i can do this in the first one?

If you wanted to preview your post, or attach a file.

If you don't want to use the feature, don't.

I didn't really use the full editor in the last version much either, only with long entries (like tutorials) that I wanted to preview before I posted

Fast Reply doesn't show to other members you are writing a reply.

Edit: What benefit would a 3d look give the user, other that it likes pretty?
I personally prefer functionality over style.

"preview your post" can be easily done at the same page lets say with a popup box like "View Profile".

First of all, why should they know it? since its an information that is not easily accessible.
I never knew that you can see if the other user is writing a reply. Its something you guys
made for yourselfs and expect us to find it one day. So as you may have understood a 3D interface
due to its simplicity shows the user from the first time every possible option that you can offer him.
That's why its better. That is what i call user friendly something that the user can adjust to.
But its not innovative.It forces the programmer to follow function in every way. So he ends up doing
something extraordinary without he even know it. Example: Windows Flip 3D. Well its not the best example
i can find...

News Flash: We didn't "make" this. http://www.InvisionPower.com made most of it. We just re-integrated it back in to the site and updated a lot of the code so everything stayed the same.

We'll be re-working the design slowly over time.

i like the site. takes a little getting used to from to old design but it still looks fancier and cleaner than a lot of other forums

adding 3d just because you can doesn't make any sense.

That's what I want, an ad right in my face. If I could it beam it directly into my cerebral cortex I would. Go technology!

3d interface don't work efficiently, the interface that work best are 2d for example Media Centre, XBOX360's Dashboard and Playstation3's CrossBar

NIXZ... I've gone through all of your previous posts & am unable to find anyone ever holding a gun to your head...

If Dream In Code doesn't meet your requirements, no one is twisting your arm to stay here.
