    Of course I like WBB and that's why I stay, but the new forum format is difficult to read for these aging eyes... Not sure why - font size, or font boldness, etc. I don't know, but something about it is harder for me to focus on.
    A child does not learn to squat from the top down. In other words, he does not suddenly make a conscious decision one day to squat. Actually, he is squatting one day and make the conscious decision to stand. Squatting precedes standing in the developmental sequence. This is the way a child's brain learns to use the body as the child develops movement patterns. Therefore, a child is probably crawling, rocks back into a squatting position with the back completely relaxed and the hips completely flexed, and stands when he has enough hip strength. This approach makes a lot of sense and can be applied to relearning the deep squat movement if it is lost. -Gray Cook

    aesthetically it's not too easy on the eyes. i must the alternating colors (white/grey) highlighting each post on the topic list.

    but i don't really care, no. the old one was better imo but i'm sure i'll get used to this in no time.

    Off Road, have you tried Firefox? It's a popular alternate web browser. I use it and thousands of others do. I have minimal problems with it.

    I've been thinking of trying it out. This might be the excuse I need to get on it.

    To be honest I can barely use internet explorer anymore. The differences may seem little but Firefoxes layout and the way it flows for me is awesome, I suggest you try it. Nothing to lose either way, you'll still have IE waiting for you if you don't like it.

    dude, you really should use firefox (or google chrome, which i haven't tried but i hear is good). your internet will literally move faster just from switching browsers from IE. IE sucks ass.

    I use Flock at home and IE at work (not because I have a choice, it's the default).

    You can guess which works better where.

    me: I could never figure out what people were talking about

    I totally agree. I like the modern look, but for simply forum usage its quite difficult to read for some reason. Cant put my finger on one specific reason...just seems theres so much going on.

    One other thing, is the advanced search gone? I see the regular search at the top, but searching via title, number of views, number of replies, etc. was much more handy for finding answers to repeat questions.

    can we get back a way to go to gen chat (or whatever main forum it is) from the bottom of a screen? i set mine at 100 posts per page, and i gotta scroll to the top to get back to the main gen chat area. i could hit "go" at the bottom before.

    After a few days I am going to have to agree with others, I find it very difficult to read and see what is going on with the new settings. Heck, it has even made me not even lurk around as much...Can't put my finger on what it is but just not very friendly to view.

    If you scroll to the bottom of the page, there is a "Top" button that will take you right there

    I'm really not having the difficulties you guys are reading this and I spend a lot of my time on my laptop as well.

    However I'll talk about it with Daniel and see if we can come up with something to make it a little easier on the eyes.

    THe contrast of the dark blue on the white back ground naturally takes away from the text itself. This fatigues readers' eyes faster.

    Having said that, I am used to it already and like it.

    I definitely don't mind the new site, perhaps make that dark blue background a light blue, something the color (or maybe a smidge darker) than the blue in this quick reply box, unless of course my eyes are playing tricks and this box is actually white.

    You can also use the "Home" and "End" keys on your keyboard.

    The more people mention how hard it is to read with the contrast of colors, the more I notice it! Quit talking about it!! Haha.
