    It will be big time mobile friendly, and not require an app to run for your phone. This is one of my most fav aspects of the new one coming.

    Good because Tap-a-Talk is AIDS. Sorry if they sponsor you. I would not be very proud of that.

    Not at all, necessary evil with the current board. I won't be utilizing it on the new one.

    Maybe I'm an old fart, but I like layout of the forum as is. The one in the OP looks way too busy for me but whatever. As long as I can keep my red/black scheme, I'm okay

    I'm with you here. Looks like there'll be all sorts of new fangled buttons and knobs as well.

    One of my favorite new features for the new forum, is going to be the user media area. You will be allowed to have your own pic gallery and video embed area.

    ^The stuff above looks cool!

    Also, I would love to have on the user profile pages a space to have a Last.fm widget.

    Now that right there sounds awesome. *edit: but after looking at it(was on cell earlier) im not so sure now. I have a feeling that this change might just end up being the death of this place.*

    But im basically on the same page as the other old farts. I think it's fine the way it is right now.

    Can we keep the blue color scheme as an option?

    Forum is fast and responsive as it is now, will everything be slower after the update?

    Will it have a mobile version?

    The improved user profile looks good.

    I like the blue. Its dark profile is easy on the eyes.

    TSHIRTS!
    I've been hearing this call since I first got on the site.

    I'm curious of the same thing.

    Deron said the website will be mobile friendly, no app required.

    Man I hope so. I used to run mine on here too but I think they changed some stuff on their end and those chart widgets no longer work. Do they work on any other forums you use?

    You didn't elaborate on the "*". How do you not like it when you viewed on desktop?

    It's part of your profile, and it has its own tab, and as long as people don't abuse it (and I will not allow them too) but posting porn and garbage, it should be a big winner. Curious to hear more feedback on that.

    Mind you also, I'm an old fart too, and I'm loving the new stuff :)

    I don't know if it would kill discussion on the board. I think it would allow for a person to post things not necessarily relevant to anything on the site.

    I want the following:

    T-shirts (nice way to raise funds to keep the site going too. I feel a 'Post pics of you with your UM shirt' thread coming)
    Rep points
    Ability to change your username (up to a certain amount of times) without having to request it

    I hope it will be just as fast if not faster (when new forum launches, my server guy is also moving me to a new server with more up to date software on that side, as well as better email and spam protection at the server level).

    Absolutely will be mobile, and it works awesome. If you want a taste of how it will feel on a phone, pull up this link: http://www.audentio.com/demo/xf/index.php (that's the raw framework I am building on top of).

    I will do my best to add a blue theme since many have asked for one.
