Everyone hates change. But it has to come eventually.

When we changed to the version you're used to, many years back, there was a massive outcry about how terrible it was - but now people are talking about it being great and why did we have to change away from it.

My conclusion is that the issue is simply that there's been any change at all, not that the new is worse than the old. I'd say to give it a chance. In a couple of weeks time, you'll be as au fait with the new as you were with the old.

I HATE change for the sake of change....tweak things gradually....for God's Sake....I drive a creaky 156 that is about to die.....but I know it as much as it knows me.

The old forum couldn't be tweaked anymore & there were ongoing issues that couldn't be resolved due to it's age & lack of development.

I have spent too long reading stuff I have already read and missing stuff I haven't :D
I use a few forums and they have the same version. This is different to all of them and bloody awful.
Hopefully I'll eventually get the hang of it, but so far it is pretty **** :D(y)

This thread was imbedded with them including one for 'Ultimate ****'. That I don't need!
How do I reset cookies as Sterzo asks? Right at the bottom of the page is 'Cookie Peferences by TrustArc' and even though I've selected 'no' I'm still getting those ads.

p.s. How do I go back and edit? I wanted to point out that the ad was after Paddy's post. Was that a coincidence?
Ignore that question, I've just seen the way!

Well, being part of a forum that already uses the xenforo platform this is fairly familiar (apart from the ads) so no problems with navigation. All good here.

The old forum, whilst being like a favourite comfy armchair, was fooked. It was slow and the way it kept trying to convince me I was using it in the wrong skin used to drive me to distraction. No, I shall not miss it.

Well i do, i find the old one way easyer to navigate, but then again i am a dumb .... 😉
The function i used is gone, last reactions after i visited or something like that.
I really have to get used to the new GUI.

How do you get only the unread posts on a thread?
Hit the ‘New’ bubble icon at the top right of your home page. Then you’ll have the choice of ‘new posts’ which are unread posts or ‘popular’ which are current discussions. To improve the look of your page I use ‘dark mode’ and hold my iPad long side vertical to give me more width in the posts ( believe it or not). We had the migration several months ago on 4C Forums and it takes a while to get your head around. I still have difficulty finding my previous posts. I’ve used this in the past as a record of topics of personal relevance.
Much easier to post photos on the new platform and moderators will really enjoy the ease with which spammers and fakers can be weeded out before their posts go public.

I must admit, I really don't need to know that there's a "reaction score" judging how I act and interact here. It seems like something that could be too easily weaponized in a flame war: "of course what I say matters more, my reaction score is ten times better than yours" (using that vague number as an example because I have no idea what a good or bad score would actually be).

I agree. We’re not kids looking for likes or reactions, at least I’m not and judging by the posts I’ve read, neither are the other members here ( apologies for speaking on behalf of others). I wish to simply share in the Alfa ownership experience, helping where I can and seeking it when needed. Couldn’t care less about likes or not.

Having attempted on a couple of occasions to ‘watch’ TV in the US I find the site very much like that. I read a continuous thread of comments, it is not my usual practice to check first who has posted the comment. As a result having ‘someone’ shouting irrelevant comments through the threads about ‘miracle herbs for a weak urine stream’ or music doohickeys ‘designed for Italian cars’ (they are not ! ) is really irritating.

Install an adblocker. That worked for me.
