Was there an update or something, and why wasn't it announced at all? When I open the forums I see a list of threads instead of categories, it's all a confusing mess.
What the...

You should see categories now.

Took feedback seriously and just rebuilt the forums today on the latest versions of everything. It likely was a bad ad getting served but that is very hard to troubleshoot. Instead decided to control what I could.

Not a planned activity, but best option available.

@Patrick: I am ok with the changes, but miss the unread messages counter at the top of the screen :cool:
That was an addon that does not work with this version. I will look into it as I agree that was a nice feature.

Also, for those that know me, the "What's new" contraction is killing me.

It appears certain things are not updated yet or working?

Clicking a profile to view recent posts, comments shows nothing or 1 vs the # that should be there.

I'm also noticing other missing items that kept me more active\browsing around are gone :( or take more time.
User info on the left is severely lacking too.

Not complaining, just letting it known.

I've also found search to be pretty bad. I know for a fact there are posts that have certain terms but they don't show up.
I have to go and search my email to find them and open them :(

We have the enhanced search off as part of the minimal config. Should be back this weekend.

Today/ tomorrow are about getting the forums readable. We have someone working to match the new theme to the main site. I am actually typing this testing the mobile look.

Thanks for the heads-up guys.

The dark theme is WAY better, hopefully the... colorfulness can be toned down too? (fingers crossed)
