Nice to see an upgrade, but everything is spaced out too much. Such a waste of real estate, did you guys even do a usability test? Or just decided, hey I think it looks cool, lets roll with it? To be honest, the layout looks like crap, cheap, given that this is a BMW forum, it no longer has that elegant sophisticated look and feel.

I don't want a dark theme. Just use the color scheme from the legacy setup. Use the bright white background only for the side column. Use the gray background for the body text... the opposite of how it's implemented now.

So apparently I cannot thank posts from my phone's browser:

Quote:
zed.inc, you do not have permission to access this page. This could be due to one of several reasons:
1.Your user account may not have sufficient privileges to access this page. Are you trying to edit someone else's post, access administrative features or some other privileged system?
2.If you are trying to post, the administrator may have disabled your account, or it may be awaiting activation.

EDIT: Viewing the post later, I can see that the Thanks registers. Not sure why I was getting the above message though.

Love the new look and banner despite the fact it is only featuring the second best colour of the E39.

Just noticed I am now labelled as "Senior" member...Really? Am I qualified to play chess at the mall now??

What happened to the Gallery along the top menu? It's not working.

Seriously, thanks for the modernization.

Ooo I have a cool idea.

Sometimes I like to open threads to see pictures then read responses to those pictures, but when is old or has like 50+ pages, I get turned off. I find myself opening 20 tabs at once to just scroll thru till a picture pops up.

Is there a way you could make an option for like "shared pictures"? Something similar to Facebook chat or iOS Messaging

A few more things I've noticed while browsing the full site on my Windows mobile phone:




- The page doesn't resize to fit to width like it used to before, which makes things annoying since the first thing I have to do is pinch-zoom out to see what's what
- Menus work well, which I'm quite pleased about as it simplifies UX. There appear to be two empty menu entries in the 'Tools" menu

The chevron is missing if I am the last poster in that thread.

The Garage does allow me to upload images from Photobucket URLs, even though it's a supported format.
