I'm voting as a crotchety old man who hates change.

While the new design is not unpleasant, I saw no reason for change, and it is disorienting. If it ain't broke, don't fix it.

P.S. After experimenting a bit more, my main issues are with the unfamiliarity of the thread emblems (showing new/recently updated/etc), and the reduced functionality of moderator abilities. When I check a post or thread for mass moderation, there is no longer any sort of indication that the thread or post has been checked except in the action bar. That is, the check box is not filled, or colored, or anything like that. The new color scheme is fine, but the replacement of icons and the impact on functionality are problems.

Really like the new wooden layout. The bright white of the old one kind of hurt my eyes at times. This one's great!

I adore the new icons. The first new version of the layout (before the additional icons had been added) was almost perfect, but the icons it had were severely out of place. The new Nexus themed icons are really great and bring the whole board together IMHO.

People can still use the old design if they wish. Just change the Skin to the old design and you'll have no problems. It will be like if things never changed to you!

No powers were reduced from moderators at all.

All functions from classic blue skin should still be working in this. If you would like to help by showing us which ones aren't working by sending screenshots of the two versions would make it easier for us to understand.

Thanks a lot for your feedback! If you have any other comments, fixes or suggestions to add to the new design it's very much welcome.

While I dont mind change, I dont see why it was necessary in the first place, the previous layout was fine. Besides, seeing this "new" change just made me wonder if I went to the proper link, because if I remember correctly, the original forums looked like this.

Hey there. you can still use the blue and white skin. Just go to the bottom of your Nexus Forums, to the left side, next to the RSS Feed buttom there's a drop down menu. It allows you change the skin. Choose "Classic Blue" and voilá, you'll have the look you enjoy without any problem.
