What is this, facebook?

What's up with all the changes lately? What was wrong with the old forum? It just seems as if the forum is getting more and more cluttered with stuff that isnt needed, such as name colors.

Is anyone feelin' me?

clutter is a color change?

lets see all that was really added is the gallery.

the rest all came with the update to allow us to block spammers

the colors
the gallery
the extra links up top
the sub forums on the main forum page
the member page
the member info next to the avatar
the way you get PMs

I can continue if you want. Its all clutter if you ask me, there was nothing wrong so why change it?

Spammers? Where? I havn't seen any in a long time, and when they do get on the post one thing and leave.

Look dude, no one is forcing you to post on this forum. It is what it is. Deal with it.

Matt,

Yellow = Contributor
Orange = Moderator
Red = Administrator

They're not changable.

Seriously, do you not have anything else in your life bothering you right now? If this stuff actually annoys you so much that you have start a thread to complain about it and list everything you don't like, I wish I had your life. Most people have much better things to worry about and could care less about these forum upgrades as long as it still works. Geez.

LOL.........

I wish the new upgrades to this site was at the top of my "things to bi*ch about" list....LMAO. Poor guy must be a student still living at home if this is what's bothering him.....LOL

As far as the new look goes, I like it. Been away for last 7 days and came back to read this. With all the upgrades and new vamping going on, might be time to mop up and ring out some members.
