    Seems there is only tempStyle 2 and tempStyle 2 Dark now. I suggest to bring back the true face of GBATemp, the classic style.

    Unfortunately we won't be able to bring it back, we can no longer support 4 styles simultaneously.
    If you have any suggestions for improvements on TempStyle 2 and TempStyle 2 Dark don't hesitate to comment!

    Tempstyle 2 Dark looks great IMO, especially on Mobile.
    I don't see what's the point of staying in the old interface.
    It evolves, and you like it or not, it's here to stay.

    As much as I would love to see Classic temp, I fear that it's simply impossible with the amount of additions to the forum.
    Besides, it wouldn't look the same as it did back in ye olde days.

    The old interface is way too cluttered, believe me. The layout of things changed a bit and therefore the old theme isn't fitting anymore. Before it got removed, it was very weird looking.
    I am truly crying already. I simply cannot wait for the perfection it will look.

    I actually mean this one haha.

    I've been on Tempstyle 2 Dark now for so long that I forgot we still had the old outdated one.
    Apologies.

    yeah i got that.

    but tempstyle 1 would still work. the only reason the remove it is maybe storage. or i dont know.
    maybe the x MB are really needed LOL

    I would love if something like an addon/tampermonkey script would be released for tempstyle 1.

    My biggest issue with the switch is that now everything is way too huge. I feel like I need to turn this tab to 75% or lower to read the same amount of content.

    Modernizing things are fine, but I really hate the new large bubble layout that mobile phones are pushing. I don't need massive margins on a desktop, this isn't a mobile device, so treating it like one is stupid.

    Edit: I need a drop down to edit posts and report? Great, another abstraction brought about by the mobile themes that can't handle too much content on the same line without wrapping. Also, while we are at it, give us a way to disable the levels and message count, or at least compress it down. Single line posts are now 50% larger than they were in the previous theme that just got disabled.

    Great now I see stupid numbers next to users names. If your gonna force us to use this style at least give us more options to customize the site to hide or show certain things.

    Notification in the tab is now just a useless box. Before it used to tell you the number of notifications you had.

    This update feels like added bloat and feature removal. Do developers anymore not understand what the word optional means? Everything that could have been added or removed should have been an optional flag under advanced options.

    Adding my voice to those that are not happy about removal of the old theme..

    No one complained about it. Why remove it?

    Because a number of features were broken, any XP related feature appeared as blank, icons were misplaced in several diffrent places, and there was a lot of other things
