    As we move on to 2017, there's plenty of great stuff going on in our communities. One of the more exciting things is a new forum design that we've been diligently working on for some time. We're testing it right now right here at Android Central.

    How to activate the new design
    Activating the new design is as easy as clicking this link. Doing so will turn on our new design.

    How to provide feedback
    This is absolutely crucial! If you've activated the new design, we'd be ever so grateful if you could provide honest feedback. We don't want to have feedback coming at us from each site, so if you wouldn't mind giving your feedback here on Android Central we would appreciate it.

    Doing so is crucial, as it'll help us make the design look, feel and work better for all of our communities! Again, don't forget to provide your feedback HERE.

    Thank you all in advance for your help!

    To trigger the dark theme, I just clicked the "moon" symbol on the right:

    The design feels cleaner which I like. I would love it, if when you click on a forum in the app it takes you to the last post if you have visited the forum before. Its minor nuisance but I hate having to always hit the button to click to see the last post when I visit forums on my iPhone.

    Wearables are so very popular now, and that popularity is only going to increase as the technology. I would suggest that the wearables forum be moved at or near the top. As it stands now, we have scroll almost endlessly to get to it. Very frustrating!

    I like the new format. It's very clean and easy to use. I have one thing to ask in this new design, however. Wearables are so very popular now, and that popularity is only going to increase as the technology. I would suggest that the wearables forum be moved at or near the top. As it stands now, we have scroll almost endlessly to get to it. Very frustrating!

    The design is clearer and simply more legible and relaxing. However, can you also optimize it for wide-screen browsing on a computer monitor? The old site showed more text horizontally so less scrolling was required. Overall it's a solid improvement so thank you!

    Hi AC formus team

    I just activated the new app look and feel. I really like it. One area of opportunity that I have identified is that the amount of replies on a post is no longer available. This is very useful to me especially in the Ask a question forum. This way a can see if a post has been answered or if there is a rich conversation on the topic. This information was available on the previous design and it's very help full.

    Cheers

    Found it. It's the amount of replies is now on the box localted at the left of the forums. Nice.

    I'm getting used to the new look and feel.

    Should I be pleased or surprised to see something different within the forum?.. because I don't. It all looks the same.. I was expecting a change in the entire format to something like Pluck.com or another forum format

    Ah ok.. just refreshed the page.. interesting.. baby blue boarders.. great tool bar with more options.. I'll retract my statement above.. Hum I had my zoom too far out.. but so far so good. It's growing on me.. will have to explore a bit more. defiantly not the old forum (chat style format)

    Ok.. something just came up.. these colors are actually starting to hurt my eyes unlike the older format.. I hope I can revert back..

    Just reverted back to the old format.. conclusion.. in less than 5 mins, the new forum's format colors/theme started hurting my eyes..
