    Database error on launch there. Slowed it right down.
    We are debugging but it’s sometimes hard to test the effect of 500+ people flooding into a site in a few seconds.

    That’s better – is this the start of a new golden age of STW?

    We get you, don’t worry, it wasn’t a criticism.

    Nice.

    Is this the 2011 version?

    Nice, clean new look.
    However, I can’t get in to Classifieds. I get a ‘too many redirections’ message.

    Is this the promised land we were promised in 2005?

    Can we hide the top bar?

    Otherwise it’s bollocksed any stealth foruming at work.

    What’s the ‘posts’ section in my profile meant to be for?

    Edit: Replies created looks like it’s usable unlike the previous version, but might be better if we had a count of how many replies since our last post, rather than a thread total?

    Pretty. What’s the sidebar (left) for?

    We are watching a lot of server graphs very closely. We expect the first few minutes to perhaps be a little slow while cache fills. Fingers are crossed here.

    If this works and things are stable then we’ll start working through the minor usability and navigation bugs. Ads are currently off right now but they will come back as the day goes on.

    Thanks for your patience and sorry it’s taking longer than we planned

    Looks great so far, would be good if the “Posted 1 minute ago” was less prominent (but this obviously isn’t urgent).

    I fear change! Doesn’t everybody over 30?

    Looking good.

    Would prefer the “Posted x ago” text to be formatted and located nearer to the “REPLY REPORT” text as it slightly interferes with the post comment imho, and doesn’t deserve the same importance?

    Mark switched off and back on again as there was a database issue.

    Ads are off but will reappear gradually.

    Currently most changes are cosmetic.

    It’s gone all dark, nice 😎

    And it’s lovely without the ads working….

    Formatting of the posts on a thread is.. weird..? Not sure exactly what’s wrong.

    But the first thing that annoyed me was the post counts on the main page – they are bold, it looks bad.

    nice job

    even better with the ads not working 🙂

    It looks good so far! It would be good to have the top bar hidden once you scroll – makes it a bit easier to look at in the office!

    Yeah I agree Molgrips it’s a bit bold.

    Ads will be back but enjoy the taster of ad free.

    I’m very angry, I’ve had to work harder than usual all morning.

    Looks very modern and I appreciate the effort from STW towers that’s gone in to our ability to rant in a modern look and feel 😉

    Looks good – well done all!

    Very nice – just in case no-one has said it yet “Thank You for all your hard work” :o)

    I agree. Like the new look in general though.

    Looks nice though.

    Looks clean. Don’t get the annoying reformatting jump that meant you either had to wait fifteen seconds after loading a page or take a chance that you’d open the thread you wanted. Has the feeling of loading quicker because of that but haven’t timed it or looked in the developer tools to confirm.

    Not checked on my iPad yet as that was really slow to get all the page loaded, hopefully some of Drac’s iPad pixie dust will have found it’s way over!

    Nobody have valued my privacy in over 40 seconds, I’m feeling somewhat neglected!

    JK of course, looks much nicer, good work STW web elves!

    The (frankly, useless) notifications on every. Single. Reply to one of your threads has gone.

    I’m a fan of dark theme so this looks good.
    Well done.

    Oh yeah, top bar needs to disappear on the mobile site really.
