    I didn't realize how often I was here until the forums went down!

    Looking forward to reconnecting with all of you!

    I for one think the new lay out is pretty sweet.

    Cheers!

    Hate the new lay-out. Think Specifically the white background

    It alright. Though I don't like how spaced out it is. Tons of wasted space. I liked the more condensed version much better. You could quickly scroll though much easier. Sure they are still working a lot of kinks out. Glad to be back!

    I'm going to hope this becomes a back end for something that looks closer to the older layout. It's too bright and "big."
    At least we're back up, though.

    I don't know if it will be the case with this forum, but I've seen some that let you choose your own color scheme from several preset options. Then, each user can view the forum in whatever colors/contrast they want. I haven't been able to find such an option yet though.

    Also, I noticed in the user preferences somewhere there was an option to turn off the viewing of other's signatures (I turned that off immediately). I haven't seen anyone post with a signature of their own yet, so I don't know if that feature has been enabled, but those can potentially add a lot of additional clutter/white space. I'm hoping they're disallowed entirely.

    I'm guessing all of these things will be improved or addressed after a little more time. Cheers all!

    I wonder if the view will have customizable options. I guess we'll see!

    EDIT: I was referring to what eclipse said.

    The block feature is going to be nice.

    I have always enjoyed this site primarily for the beer reviews. I have wanted to enjoy the discussion boards here but I find there's a level of pompousness from some posters (directed at other newer posters) that drives me away, now I can just block them. Looking forward to taking advantage of this feature.

    They said that it would look better after they got something up. I dislike, but maybe we can customize things later

    I'm also sad all the old posts are gone. Hope they get archived somewhere. Lots of knowledge in those forums

    I'm liking it so far, hopefully they get the bugs out soon and we can start reviewing again. That and I can't wait til they get the obscenely white background toned down a touch. Regardless, glad it is back up.

    If you're using Firefox, you can shrink it by holding down the control key and clicking the - key.

    Old Forum seemed so much easier to navigate. The white background is horrible... Think the main reason i don't go on RB that much is because of that background

    Not too bad. There are alot of things missing that I liked in the old site/forum/profile.

    Cheers!
