Sadly all these forum changes are based on performance improving: What does that mean? Just avoid spam the most you can. Hence most of the stuff like signatures are incredibly restricted. Otoh this improves also the possibilities for ads since VS has been in a dire financial state this year.

Hence minimising service to the cheapest was their way how to handle it. Now we’re connected to every other vs forum just like the Wrestling forum and many others. The change to the new forum software was poor as well and the current service isn’t helpful at all. This place just got massively devalued by its same company.
Spam? I don't think I've ever seen that since i've been here. Maybe you meant offensive content? So that the platform is "friendly" to advertisers? Not that it matters in an age of adblockers...

You don’t see the spam cause we mods handle it, but without moderation this forum would be polluted with take these penis enlarging pills threads.

And well not everyone uses adblock given the amount of everyday popular pages or newspaper sites asking to disable it or just because they don’t want it simply

But various polls showed that most people hate the changes. And this one will as well.
People normally hate changes. But in this case it’s alarming that they keep complaining/ don’t get used as time goes by.
I fear us the users may not have enough power to push the owners effectively.

It’s been 1 months plus and I’m not used to this shit design yet. It’s not just the layout but the lack of features that have been removed. It’s so hard to search for my previous posts/threads I’ve made or other posters. The post count of each thread, that’s gone too. Rep system is gone. The searching is terrible and it isn’t even updated. Everything is so much more inconvenient

Well 80% of the functionality and visual design of the old one was destroyed, so of course people are still complaining. Many have likely left already because of it. Of course the owners don't care (it's like politicians in real life) since they are above consequence. All we can do is leave the forum but of course we won't since the community is so great here. We could make our own but most people would not want to move there.

Well Flash is disabled end of 2020, plus updating for more security, etc., but we lost a lot of the soul of the old place

It's not really about attachment. The new one lacks basic features in exchange for what exactly?
Truth to be said, this one is faster, more stable, I don't think I've seen one crash so far and the old one was crashing and returning database errors on regular basis. I don't use MTF on mobile devices, but as I've understood, those who do have seen massive improvements. I imagine this one is also more secure/less exploitable and so on.

The stability is likely because it's using Cloudflare now instead of its own servers. I don't think vBulletin is any less secure than this new XenForo.

Don't know if mentioned before but one of the things that suck on the new forum are very limited signature editing options. They used to be much better, now are very basic.
Yeah, one finds something not working every day. I can't even edit my legendary signature (it's too long!). Thus, these quotes will stay there forever :LOL:

Well played, man.

What a relief Tribal The Great changed his signature before the site update because at one stage he had something like 10 of my most "legendary" quotes listed there.

We are just a bunch of spotty tards hanging out in our mom's basement. We must accept zero influence as a reflection of the bottom-of the-food-chain mugs which we are. Who with any sanity would devote their existence to Fedalovic worship.

Sometimes, like in this particular case, majority of people simply shouldn't be listened to. Because objectively, 3rd option / new and proper forum with all the functions > old "retro" MTF. People are stuck with old MTF (outdated forum with sucking efficiency and user experience) purely because of their inertia and nostalgia.

So who cares about the poll results, bring us the new and proper forum if you care about users.

Well, you do have a point here. The old forum certainly had its flaws the main one being the speed of loading especially during increased traffic. So hypothetically the new technologically improved forum with the best „old” functionalities would be perfect.
Unfortunately we are not living in a fantasy world and dreams seldom come true.

I haven't really settled into the new look yet, but at least the site isn't buggy anymore. I can't found the number of times I had to refresh the page because it looked like jumbled nonsense.

What we had before this was already that option, i.e. old forum with updated technology; however they wanted to move away from vB forums, so I guess that technology went as far as it could.
