Looks definitely good. It´s soemhow faster as the old one. But on the other hand a bit more confusing in usage as the old one. I think I just have to accustom to the new design.
Love the design, I find it easier to read, overall really impressed, thanks

Messageboard "homepage" now far more cluttered than before. There's MUCH more scrolling involved to find the sections I'm interested in browsing. The front page enhancement would be a nice the messageboard only hosted 5-6 actual forums, but considering AVSIM hosts DOZENS upon DOZENS, the list is lengthy and unwieldy. The right-side column with the recent posts widget and calendar is a contributing factor to this. I'll search the config/settings options I have as a user to see if I can disable it but if not, I'd like to petition that the right-hand "recent posts" and calendar be scratched - considering the size and scope of the messageboard, the "recent posts" list is exceptionally diluted, and the calendar isn't terribly useful either. I like the "Load more topics" option as an alternative to clicking on "next page". Otherwise, looks sharp! -Greg Editing my own post: YES, you CAN close up that right-side column. Hover over the top of that column, and you will see an AJAX style control appear. The universal "close window"-style "X" icon will fade in up at the top right corner of the column. You can then close that column down (and re-open it) at a whim.

Hi Christopher, I tried to replicate your finding but was unable to. I logged out, went to main forum page, in the right hand corner selected "Sign in," filled out login information on the pop up window, and voila here I am. What browser do you use?
Just a quick note to say that the "Sign In" button does not work on the main forum page. I have to access one of the sub forums to do it.

Try deleting your cookies for avsim.net and letting them get reset it sounds like it may be an issue with it thinking they belong to a different address and not sending them.
That didn't work, but it doesn't really matter. I have noticed that, if I switch to a sub forum and then go back to the main forum page, the "Sign In" button works! Very strange.
