ArcheryTalk went to a similar format some time back. Like most folks I don't like change either, but since I've used the AT forum, this is no big deal. It just takes learning how it works and getting used to it. Hang on a while and it'll be okay.
Yep it's different for sure but I am on several forums that use this software. Once you get the the hang of it I think many will find it easier to navigate the site. Hopefully member statuses are restored where they should be and images will find their way back onto posts.
Oh also if anyone would like to switch to dark mode which is a dark background with white print you can do so by clicking the three dots in the upper right next to your photo and it is able to be selected at the bottom of the tab that opens.
