Must be some eye test thing

I hate the new format.
Titles are ridiculously big so I can't see as many topics on a page any more.
There's a lot of wasted white space between topics.
It just feels amateurish...only thing I can think of is it was redesigned for tablets/phones.
But then the font in this new post window is tiny and ugly (times roman?). Ditto the tiny title in this new post.

You guys know you can do different style sheets for phones/tablets vs. computers right? :-P

    Since I use a tablet, it works for me. I had to zoom to read text in the old format as well as this one. And I don's see any Times Roman typeface. The text is all sans-serif.

        and what happened to the "reply to OP" at the bottom of a topic?

          And the font in Edit is like crayon.

            I was just looking at it on my phone. i can't even get to my profile.

            and why is there a line of preview for each reply on a thread? so busy! what purpose does that serve?

            it really makes one wonder who they actually tested this all out on. and they're proud of it?

            as someone said, it's THEIR site, and in truth, it's JUST A WEBSITE, it's not LIFE OR DEATH, and we'll all adjust, but... how annoying. and ugly.

              To get to your profile click the red box at the top left with the 3 lines in it and then click on your name.

                when i click on the red box it literally takes up almost half the screen on my phone and does not let me see, nor scroll around to be abe to see, where my name is.

              Thank goodness I'm on an iPad where I can make things larger, otherwise I would need a magnifying glass!
              Don't you look at these web designs before you do away with the old and add the new? I know we tend to resist change,but this is rediculious!

                I'm a bit blind when reading and use reading glasses. The new Titles for posts can be read by me from 3 ft away with out my glasses.

                So yes, TOO BIG!!
