We ought to do away with ratings entirely, b/c they dampen discussion. I want people to tell me why they like or love something, not just give it a rating.
I'm entirely against people repeating the same ideas over and over when they can just click an "I agree" button. Not all discussion is useful discussion.

Besides, I doubt many have time to draft up adequate replies to any content they enjoy (see: art, projects, etc.) or agree with (discussions/debates).

I don't disagree. My comment was more so to draw attention to that exact reasoning but as applied to the (disagree) ratings.

This being said, I don't care much either way what ratings we have-- they just don't mean much.

Seeing the recent fixes, and it's a lot easier on the eyes. The rest are just things I'll have to get used to. (By no fault of the staff, simply how Xenforo seems to have updated it's systems)

I'm used to using the logo for that, so that's where my confusion set in. Having the sidebar seems.. overkill. Overall the forums feels less like a community forum and more like a business page, personally. Not sure if I'm the only one that sees it that way.
Currently on mobile and trying to figure out how to use it. I'm not sure why theres no server announcement home page and I find the colors to be giving me a headache even with the lowest brightness setting. Everything seems a bit too clean cut, to the point it feels almost impersonal to go through the forums.. overall, I dont believe I am a fan of the new change. It just seems harsh to me.
I agree

My final quality of life suggestion is either changing the only non-minecraft screenshot background option to either a brown like the bottom of the page or changing the alerts bar font color from white.

We all need to hide the shame.

This might have been answered already or I might be missing it, but was the “search this thread only” option removed?
Page 3 answers where to find 'all threads by one player'. But this seems to be to search something in one thread section? See top Nav bar and click the Search-scope icon to get here. You can search threads by keyword or specific player and specify which forum section to look in.

I don't know if it can be changed, but before when a thread would pop up it'd have the user who created it's icon, now it's whoever last posted. This isn't a big issue but I just get confused and think "Why would I ever be following something that disgusting BoredBrit has made?" instead of this informative thread.

I had 4 alerts, but when I clicked on alerts I saw only 3 and I couldn't scroll through the rest. Unless I click show all... but that brings me to a new window and I don't want that. Can this be fixed? It would be really annoying to have to open that tab every time I get more than 3 alerts

I'm not sure what's going on here- I woke up with 6 alerts and see all of them

It’s possible someone unrated a post which removed the 4th alert. The alerts have always shown only the most recent pinged activity. So you’d have to click a new window to look at all your older alerts even in the old site layout. If there is another sort of bug where the number of alerts is different, let us know. We’ll wait for it to occur again just to be sure.

Will look over styling issues over time.

could a bar like this: http://i.prntscr.com/NNHWUc_8QoOIbrFyxAWhsw.png

be added at the bottom of the page. like the old forums. so we can scroll down and just click back to forums as opposed to having to scroll all the way back up.
Mobile and Desktop has an arrow that scrolls you back up. Does it not show up for you?
