    Is there a way to get back the old design? For me the new design is to bright and to white.

    No there is not. At some point in the future we hope to have a Dark Design again, but for now what you see is what you get.

    I don't like the new look either, but sheesh, they just finally got the site back up and running, give them some time to work on superficial stuff like that.

    Personally, while I'd prefer a darker color scheme, the new design and layout is pretty sexy, IMO.

    If people weren't complaining than this place wouldn't be GBAtemp.

    I liked the site when it was a "Problem loading page" layout.

    Also we're just getting back online after a major outage and reformatting. I'd really put off on the complaints about the new board (layout, features, etc) until we're steady again. Then complain.

    I weep at thought of our defining quality as a community being ungratefulness.

    But it gives me ammunition to mock the community.

    Every cloud has its silver lining innit.

    Hell.
    Only thing I don't like is that it doesn't have gravatar anymore.
    Other than that I think I'll get used to it pretty quick.

    New design takes some getting used to.
    A lot of improved features over the old design.
    However I did liked the v3 portal more then the new one.

    Personally I think the site looks really amateurish now. Looked alot better the old way, but i'm not going to complain (much) im just glad to have the temp back

    People... It isn't just a new 'layout' or a new 'design' or a new 'portal'

    It's a brand new effing forum structure. Meaning EVERYTHING that was on v3 for the most part, has to be RECODED and REDONE, which takes TIME!

    Be patient.

    I'm wanting to reach through my monitor and SMACK all of you that are complaining and whining. Because you're stupid. That is all.

    I have the same feeling, I really liked the old design, especially the fact I knew were everything was and how everything worked. This looks a bit bland and I preferred the old site.
    But there are certainly factors that made the old design/forum unusable now. + the fact this was all done rather fast, we can't expect perfection.
