I'm not one who likes change either, but its only taken a few visits for me to be okay with the new site. The only thing I haven't found yet is "Active Topics" which I browse from public computers when not logged in. If anyone can point me in the right direction, I'd appreciate it.
edit: nvm I found others who asked about it too and the link that still works:
search.php?search_id=active_topics

The more I learn, the more I realize how much I don't know.

^^ The old 'active topics' link is the 'new posts' link highlighted red in this picture:

This is also shown when you are logged out, too. And if you are using mobile mode, then click the search link at the top to reveal this link.

Thought so as well,
But on second look 'New Posts' has a mere one or two pages as results, While 'Active Topics' has ten now.

Is there any way to get back to the old color scheme? My eyes!

Find the 'display options' in your 'user control panel', as below, and use 'old skool':

@ gerwin: I think sometimes it shows 10 pages as well as 2 pages depending on where you click the link. I believe it's a bug. I can raise it in the the feedback thread.

OK,
But note that someone (Snover?) earlier wrote about the fact that 'New Posts' is not supposed to be exactly the same as the original 'Active Topics'.

It's not the same... but he made it have the same behavior as "active topics" only when the user is logged out.

I don't understand why adding one more button is such a big problem this just seems dumb tbh

They are not the same, but still serves my purposes to have both “your posts” and “new posts”. Nothing changed for me really.

I’m getting used to old skool theme now, its better than default. Zero complaints so far. They did a good job I must admit it.

The mobile version is almost perfect. My experience with vogons on my phone has improved immensely. As an UI/UX designer and mobile design specialist, kudos to the vogons team for that good job.

The mobile site needs a some work. The color scheme both modern and old-school and layout is extremely hard to read on the main screen or sub froums. Post how ever is very easy to read. Better then the old site.
