    I like the new layout. Haven't really checked/tested everything but so far so good.

    Nice. I love upgrades!

    My only suggestion is that it looks a little drab. The forum def. needs more color, and the user names should be a bit bigger/bolder.

    Great work!

    One last thing, i dont like that the logo at the top takes you back to bolttalk.com, i like it better when you clicked the logo, it would take you back to the forums main page

    Did the arcade go away?

    I like to admire how Thread Killer kicked everybody's *** in the Yeti games.

    Am I the only one who kinda feels weird that we look exactly the same as Boltbunker's site? I do agree we are missing color and I wonder if we could have that chat box back that BB had at the front page

    +1 on more color. Also, does one post seem to flow into the next? There isn't a defined end point/start point from one post to the next. Or is that the "you'll get use to it" option? :)

    Rep is not dead just. Getting the count back on there for you guys is on the list. Been going through a number of things all day. The count is there now, but I need to adjust the settings to it matches the old site. So don't freak out if your rep count is not as high as it used to be. ;)

    FYI, you should no longer see SIGPIC in your signatures. Was able to get all that stuff moved over.

    Keep the feedback coming guys. It's just the start of the new look and layout, and we'll tweak it to perfection as we go forward. Thanks Robdog for all the work you've put into migrating the old data and getting the site up quickly.

    Sweet The SIGS are fixed!!

    Also agree a navy blue contrast to the bluish banners or even powder would look much more atractive. Cant say I have found much to not like, other than I never got to spend that Bolt Cash... tho the Throwback shield logo I wanted to get was sold out long before I knew what a boltcash was. GJ on site so far, it does semi make me feel a little nasuea right now. I Do like how much more larger posts appear to be. Could also do with larger font on ACCT names.

    Also Also, where can I get a explain on the Helmets and value chart for that thing????

    That's because we like all the other Chargers sites are using the same software package vBulletin. We will differentiate ourselves through customization of the site.

    Again, I like it. I don't visit BoltBunker so I don't care if it looks the same as theirs. Like I mentioned in my previous post, all this really needs is a bit more color and definitely larger screen names.
