I’m actually really liking this new site.
Sure, there are things that will take some getting used to but finally I can browse in dark mode, the quote function is great, you can see quickly what somebody is replying to, I like the instant preview. And personally I prefer to have a bunch of smilies (can’t believe I haven’t seen any complaints about that yet) and I like the little picture previews from links to sites such as Wikipedia.
Also: no time out errors!
EDIT: the smilies aren’t working/have been disabled. Okay I guess that’s fair.
