    I miss the top row block of Android Central feature stories. It was easy to see what recent articles had been posted to the site without leaving the forums.
    Otherwise, I like the cleaner, less cluttered look.

    I hate to be the naysayer but I HATE this new design. Is there any option to use the old one instead?

    Option to customize the colors used is awesome.

    I like it! As stated above, I'd like to see the recent stories come back on the top but if not, no big deal really..

    I agree. The huge fonts are annoying. I'm going to use the Tapatalk app as much as possible and avoid the desktop site as much as I can.

    The redesign was obviously done with the idea that people might browse the forums on their phone. I will continue to use TapaTalk on my phone because I'm accustomed to it, but the new design looks great on Chrome on my phone. One could probably easily navigate AC with Chrome on their phone.

    It doesn't look great on my phone. It's a mess.

    That seems like a bug to me. Try refreshing the page. (CSS cache might be out of date)

    Option to switch to the old "style" would be nice. If I want facebook "style" I would go to facebook not a Forum. A think it's harder to follow a conversation this way then what was here before but that's just my personal preference.

    There is a "style chooser" at the bottom of the page, left side of middle column. I see three standard options, MoNa, AC Amp, and AC Forums 2012. I'm guessing you might like AC Forums 2012. However, when I try to change styles it always reverts back to MoNa; any of the other two styles doesn't "stick".

    To be frank, unless there's an option to switch back to the old design I'm done here. There's simply too much lost functionality with this new design.
    What is lost?

    It is slower on my phone (lagging when typing), and the fonts are too big. Navigating is more difficult because of the large sizes.

    The Style Chooser isn't working for me using Chrome on a desktop. I see the box, try choosing a different style, the page refreshes, and I'm still using the "MoNa" style.

    I also absolutely hate the redesign, particularly that I no longer seem to be able to edit my posts and I don't have any type of clear description of what many of the options are. This new design is overly large and harder to follow on a desktop PC, harder to use (especially for those of us a bit older who might have issues seeing some of the small options icons clearly), and looks like the type of thing designed for a grade schooler (in terms of font sizes vs. icon sizes) to use.

    I'm going to go with several others and say I miss the top row of Android Central feature stories. It really was nice to see what recent articles had been posted to the site without having to leave the forums. Otherwise, I too like the cleaner lines and less cluttered look. It is true that the interface choices at the bottom DO NOT WORK! (or at least. don't change anything or lock in)

    I rarely view the forum outside of the AC Forums apps, but here's a quick issue I noticed on my phone. The mobile page is a bit too wide, requiring a side scroll to get to some buttons. The advanced reply buttons are also overlapping each other.

    Aww, c'mon "mojelijk", I'm 67 and I can still read it... I'm still using Mozilla Firefox and I can edit my posts, though the edit symbol is (kind of) hiding up in the top right corner of your post. There's three icons that are partially cut off by the text box (are you reading this Mods) - the third one to the right is the edit pencil! I found it only by hovering over it so just yell at me for busting you!!! You are right about the style chooser - I hope they get that fixed! I only busted you because I'm and old codger too!!!

    You are correct, the edit is there, just that if you quote a post the icon is hidden by the quote text box. And I don't have problems reading -- if anything the text of the posts is too large. But things like the report, edit, and other icons are quite small -- and get hidden by quotes, as well as some of the text and options at the top and bottom of the page. It isn't so much that I can't read it, it is the huge discrepancy between the large text and large icons underneath a post, and the small icons and text elsewhere on the page -- it just doesn't look good to me.

    I will concur - like the "Originally posted by jimd1050" is close to half the font size of the text in the message, as are our usernames, those upper icons I just referenced earlier? They could do some proportional makeover work to equal things out a bit better I think is what you're saying?

    EDIT - Like everything else these days (Note 7), maybe they released a bit TOO EARLY!

    Keep the feedback and bug hunting up everyone - we really appreciate it!

    Despite 2 months of testing we see that several things broke when we pushed it live - we are dealing with everything as quickly as we can, we promise.
