Default 8/1 Testing New Infinite Scrolling Theme For Some Users

Infinite scroll is being rolled out for user testing, members who were logged out and then logged back in will get the style at a 50/50 mix and it will stick when they log in. If you want to change your style please go here:

https://rennlist.com/forums/profile.php?do=editoptions
Scroll down to Miscellaneous Options
Click on the Forum Skin dropdown
Select "Rennlist"
Click Save Changes

Changes include the automatic loading of each thread page, top navigation bar sticks with you as you scroll down, adds a bottom bar for replies and thread navigation. Try it logged out on longer threads if you have time. Please post feedback in this thread. Thank you. If you weren't randomly selected to see the new style but would like to check it out, click this link: https://rennlist.com/forums/?styleid=26

Default I find the change unnecessary

and more difficult to use. If want to return to the forum first page how do I do that if I am in the middle of a thread?

Yeah - it's !@#$ing horrible. Fonts are too big. Useless white space everywhere. String wrapping in columns is broken.

Go back to the old way.

THIS!!

Please let us have an option to go back to the style we had earlier today. This is horrible even with the infinite scroll BS turned off.

PLEASE MAKE IT GO BACK TO NORMAL, as in "the way it was yesterday before it got better".
NOT COOL.

Hard to use.

The page navigation on the right will take you to whichever page you want. Hit "First" to go to the first page.

I thought I lost a bet and somehow this was the punishment. It is extremely difficult to read and much worse than before.

Absolutely terrible. Why in the world would anyone think this is progress or good?

Please return me to "normal."

If you guys add just a couple more toolbar/header type things at the top the content will finally go down to the point where you have to scroll down to see the first thread.

You've already got a a couple of few that are duplicated functionality so just copy and paste a few more in there then we won't be able to see the threads at all.
