    Sorry but the new format is just hideous.

    Has MSE never heard of the mantra "if it ain't broke don't try to fix it"?

    Can I change my vote? I voted for the second option thinking I would just have to adapt but having tried to navigate the site for about 10 minutes I have an headache and am stressed out, so have changed my mind and will now probably leave the forum

    P.S. Switched it back to old forum style but not sure how long that is going to last for

    Growing old is unavoidable. However, growing up is still optional.

    The option I would choose is not available. "I would leave if I find suitable alternative". Unfortunately at the moment I don't know any other forums like this one, so I'll have to use it. But if I find one...

    Its gone all trendy twittery social media'ish Google minimalistic.... with white backing its too bright with lots of trendy nasty grey texts (I loath this trend). We don't all have a 17 year old's eyesight!!

    They won't pull the plug on it because someone's put a lot of work or money into developing it so won't admit its a mistake. Not sure I will be bothering to come back.. to eye-straining!

    I voted hate it but mainly because it is way too bright.
    If I cared what everyone else thought, I'd be just like everyone else, and there's already too many of them.

    I voted love it! I genuinely like it!

    Everyone is taking it all far too seriously! Its just like the complaining on Facebook every time they make a change! Then all those complainers get used to it and then complain again about the next change! Change happens peeps - get used to it! There are other forums you can go and use if you don't like it

    Hated it.....it was just like every other boring forum layout.

    Luckily am back to the old green one now.

    Even allowing for the fact that one might get used to a new layout, it is so inferior!

    The green one has everything to hand.......you can see loads of options at a glance.

    Why on earth change something that obviously works well?

    Very unhappy if this will be forced on us with no other optional skin.
