Welcome to the new ParkFans Forum!

As Zachary revealed earlier this winter, he and Gavin have been hard at work developing a new site. I am happy to report that they are finally done, and we can reveal the fruits of their labor.

I invite everyone to take a moment to look around, and (hopefully) admire the cleaner look of Rev 3. We all agreed that the colors and graphics were outdated and cluttered, so we stripped them out. We are confident that no one should have any trouble coding things like links and quotes themselves, so we removed all of the buttons. Just in case, the How To Embed Almost Anything Into a Post thread is still available as a handy cheet sheet.

The hope is that in addition to looking much better, the Forum will also load faster, and work better on mobile devices.

All of that said, we acknowledge that there might be a few graphics that members find particularly useful. So, in addition to other feedback, please feel free to nominate specific icons, buttons, etc to be added back onto the site.

Additionally, there were a few graphics that we were not yet able to remove. We have been busy with all of the new attractions, but once Sesame Place was taken care of, we finally had enough time to get it good enough to share. We promise we are working to eliminate those last bits of bloat.

We really hope everyone is as excited as we!

I love it! Simple. Understated. Like a good boxed wine, or a well put together Whopper Jr.

A ParkFans Advisor for the people!

This will be so much easier without all the font and color options!
I am also thrilled that all the silly avatars and such are gone.

I think it would be a good idea to remove signatures too. This will run much more smoothly over ANSI 2400 baud now!

For a second I thought Comcast started charging for color.

Looks like nothing, except slightly textier.

While I admit that there's a certain elegance to the B&W look, perhaps like a black tie affair, I can't help but feel that something is missing. I'm sure you guys will continue to tinker and make Rev 3 all that it's cracked up to be, but it is a bit bland. Maybe I'm just missing the splash of color from my KD avatar...

I'm not sure I like it. Seems like all of the character it had is now gone. But if it helps the performance of the site, I reckon that takes precedence here. Thanks for your endless efforts to keep this site going guys! You rock!

As a temporary solution, you can go here and select Rev II for board style. That said, once all the bugs in Rev III are ironed out, this option will be removed.

Hands down the most progressive move in online communications since AIM.

All hail our great leaders and all that they provide for those who are not worthy!

It's like I'm reading a newspaper. Very retro and classic.

I'm happy there's finally a web page compatible with my e-ink display.

Short of yellow text on a dark gray background, this is the most visually appealing design I could ever dream of. I particularly relish the streamlined new ParkFans logo; its modern style reminds me of the Google logo switch from a few years ago.

Frankly, I want to do whatever I can to support this new version and its creators, so it's a shame the Donate button didn't survive the upgrade.
