Well, it's been nearly a month that we have had the new forums online. What do you think now? Take the poll and post any comments or suggestions you may have here.

We are experimenting and it is not open to the public at this time. :(

Like most polls, yours is designed to solicit the answers you want to see, which does not include mine.I initially liked the new format, but the more I use it, the less I like it. The server is not functioning as well, and the administration seems to have changed drastically. In some forums, too many topics are locked almost immediately after the initial post, for no apparent reason.

Well, I don't know how that is possible since we gave you every possible perturbation of an answer choice. But by all means, give me some suggestions on additional answers. I will be happy to incorporate them in the next version of this poll.

By all accounts and including our behind-the-scenes monitoring of the system, the server is doing spectacularly well. In fact, given the activity, I am amazed that it isn't on its knees. Your connection path might have issues; did you do the usual checks?As for the admin aspect of it, that is not the fault of the forum software, but our ability to better detect violations of our terms of use or questionable posts. Which is a good thing; don't you think?

The new forums were a welcome sight, and I was thrilled to see Avsim adopt IPB, one of the best forum systems on the web. And so far, with all the new additions, it has only gotten better! :( :(

I do appreciate all the work and the continuing tweaking to the layout. It is feeling a bit better but still. The new forum changed my reading habbits and I find that I visit / read the forum less then before.
