    first.

    i miss the testing area...its just not the same.

    then again, ppl usually hate changes, so i could be biased.

    EDIT: at least change the icon back to the weather one.

    Don't really care about the changes as long as it stays as it is.

    I would prefer a different icon...

    Perhaps a radioactive icon...

    I may be biased, but I rather like it. Many of the staff, including myself, have always had a soft spot in our hearts for the TA. Yet 99% of the time it really wasn't used for testing. We also saw that many people weren't fond of it, and found the idea of TA topics cluttering the latest discussions box detracted from the forum and real topics. This solves both of those problems.

    Sounds better than "Testing Area" anyway for all the silliness that went into it.

    I like it! Though to be honest, I don't even realize what sub-forum I'm in half the time since I just use "view new posts" all the time. [​IMG]

    But it's all good from my perspective.

    Sure the testing area was a bad name, but that name has a bit of history to it.

    This new one probably fits well but it doesn't feel the same anymore.

    EOF = End Of File, so I was confused and said "Wat?" even though I saw the post about the name change. LOL

    I think the name change makes sense. As a relative new guy I was always confused as to why the "Testing Area" seemed to actually be the random crap section. And End of the Forum rolls off the tongue a bit better than Random Crap.

    EDIT: Edge, not End. LOL I'm a nerd.

    Poll options are way too 4channer for my taste, so I'll just say that I like it.

    Stop being so anti-internet-terms. I don't see how Win/Fail/Wat is 4chan. You're just being paranoid about it for no reason.

    @ontopic: I sort of like EOF, TA will be missed, and I still don't see why it really needed a change of names, but it's still nice and gives it a better description than TA [​IMG]
