No more "Classic" view?

I don't see how to change the look to "classic" view. Let me know, otherwise I have no reason to visit anymore - this place has died off since FB got popular.

Also, this updated look doesn't show what group each post is in.

There's always issues when a forum interface changes. The main thing we hope to get out of this is more control over spam.

I'm still seeing the subforum for each post...in fact it's in the image you posted. Did I misunderstand what you were complaining about?
I listened to Hatfield and the North at Rainbow. They were very wonderful and they made my heart a prisoner.

Hi - I am sorry, we had no choice - our forum platform was really very outdated and the spammers were taking advantage of this. Our poor moderators were getting really fed-up, as they had to deal with hundreds of spam posts a week. The old platform could not offer us the spam fighting measures we needed. The only way to fix this was to update our forum platform to its latest version. Unfortunately that meant that we couldn't keep the old look. :(

As for not showing the groups that each post is in... I am a bit confused about this. As far as I can see, the image you posted is showing all the groups. I have highlighted them in this picture.

OK, I see the sub-topics now. They're just not as apparent and bold as before.

Well, it's been fun. See y'all on FB!

No. FB is way too cumbersome to find posts older than 2 days ago. VSE helps learning a lot more, and there is a lot less trolling here!
Considering parting away from:
-Roland TR707
-DSI Mopho
