    I've been gone for a while due to some health issues. I'm back now and am having a hard time navigating the new site. Is there a post somewhere (that I obviously can't find) that explains all the changes?

    At first it felt strange to me too, but you get used to it with time, like everything.

    The main objection I still have about the change are the avatars becoming disks instead of rectangles, which do not properly lendr themselves to pepping up for special occasions.

    the main objection i had with xenforo was that it looked like antarctica in a snowstorm.. but you get used to global warming too..

    To stay up to date also concerning security a forums software update was inevitable.
    Xenforo lets us realize most of what we had at vBulletin and it's a good performance.

    Anyway there are 'trends' I'd consider like going backwards. Most is layout related. Current web designer have no idea of real art, they optimize web design performance-wise even though current hardware would not even need it.

    And we had different ideas. I took care of the 'classic' part. Not anything that is 'modern' is better.
    And most coming from big US companies like google lacks of individual charm.

    On a more philosophical level, isn't change the only constant thing in life? ;)
