Dont like the new look, agree with others, too much white space.

Please take me off the beta and put me back to how it was.

When in a thread on my iPad I tap the top of the page which used to auto scroll to the top of that page. Then I'd tap the forum e.g. GT4, and it would take me back to that forum and unbold the thread I just read, so I'd know what I had read or not read.

Now I tap the top and it scrolls, and scrolls, and scrolls. I can't tap the forum to get back to the forum page.

Hate it. Stop trying to be creative. You don't know how.

Infinity scrolling also makes it more difficult to save to disk.

And sharing links (few people know how to get the post-specific links).

And you create a royal mess for search engines.

i like the infinite scrolling, a few other forums i'm on have it already. but really, the only benefit is if you start reading a multi-page thread from the beginning.

the fonts being larger than the standard rennlist style doesn't help.

this removes the banners:

I tried the new view. Don't like it for a couple reasons. 1) The font is too big. 2) The infinite thread slows me down by automatically loading other threads that I didn't click on. I am happy to have the option to reset back to the "old" Rennlist style.

Do not like! Good to see there is a way to get back to "normal". Hopefully I'll be able to figure it out.

And let's be clear: Mobile sites suck. All of them. Period. End of discussion.

Forcing your desktop and large-format tablet users to use a site 'optimized' for a smart phone should be a crime with a mandatory sentence... flaying perhaps.

And while we're at it: member websites (rennlist.org) are down. Again.

If it ain't broke don't fix it.
Not pleased with the update.
Will be turning it off.

If you want to fix something, fix the bug that makes the random picture thread show one more page than actually exists.
