Yes, the new one is trash. Lags and feels extremely unpolished, feature wise. I couldn't care less about the look.
Good afternoon Steve, Ed, Jack, Phil, Frank and other VS. Members.
The migration of course has been a big overhaul on your end and it has come with some hiccups along the way. You have been very diligent to answer our questions to the best of your knowledge and fix small and large bugs a like.
Let's consider one thing. While there have been mixed feelings about the migration to the new website there has been one common consensus among 90% of your dedicated forum members and customers.
Classic mode. What does this mean... you know the answer. The option to switch to a dark blue/ orange , more boxy version of the forum. Akin to the old one. Honestly the smiles are secondary to this. But I feel you have a team of brilliant coders in your repertoire, who are up to the task of not only appeasing yourselfs with a challenge but to also keep the forum members happy and satisfied.
Ligt and dark mode are fine and well, but you have to remember that you have many members who have been around since you all first founded this.
Steve what do you say? You have done so much good as far as we can see, but I would ask you to consider this request and or quote my post and respond. It's better that you are transparent and give a straight up answer, because this is the most requested feature since your move.
Thank you again for you all's time and dedication and I'll be waiting with abated breath for your response.
They are working on functionality first and then will work on aesthetics. This has been confirmed by my communications with multiple VS employees. For example it looks like the first priority is getting mods their functions back.The version of MTF before the last version was the best 1. I wish they go back 2 versions. It seems everytime an update gets made to anything it gets worse. That's probably because you get used to the way a site functions and then when it changes it's weird. I literally don't care about how something looks, I just want it to work the way I want. Of the 3 versions they've had since I've been here this one is the worst though. First version was the best.
