It's pretty good in terms of updated design, looking a lot more polished, but I have a bit of an issue: there's just not enough on the screen! The ads down the bottom, plus the ribbons at both ends of the screen, leave only a small square in the middle which really turns me off. I have to constantly scroll to read only a few lines of text at a time.

Although it looks nicer, I preferred the old one. You could have more words on the screen and there weren't so many distractions. The ads in the old skin were fine, barely noticed them particularly after I scrolled down.

It takes a super long time to load, even on 4G, and I keep pressing ads.. annoying!

Ditto-took forever to load anything (with an incessant pulsing "loading" message) and the ads were very out of control, seeming to take up 1/2 of the screen. Couldn't find a way to list "new posts," and the names of the forums were not what I was used to so I couldn't find stuff easily. Glad there is an option to get out of the new view.

I was trying to post a screen shot last night in this thread because the forum kept crashing and just showing up with a bunch of script. But I couldn't even get to this thread to post it. My browser was just a bunch of script running across the screen and a little strip of the forum header at the bottom of my screen.

I use safari on my iPhone 4S on ios 7.1.2

Way too busy with all the flashy, blinky menus. Add are obnoxious now. Hopefully, the standard mobile format will not be taken away.

Don't like it. Switched back immediately to the view I'm used to seeing.

switch back to new format?

I was playing around with the new format when it first switched over. I switched back to the "old" format on my phone (Samsung Galaxy S4) and now I can't figure out how to get back to the new format. Is there a trick somewhere I'm missing?

There should be a drop-down menu, represented by three stacked horizontal lines, in the upper left corner. On that menu should be the option to exit enhanced mobile mode. It will take you back to the old mobile format.

I had the same problem yesterday, after much fiddling around ( and getting nowhere) I found the link Draftyaires mentioned. Amen!
