    As it always goes with change, it will be hard to please everyone. The forum change has more to do with being up to date and compatible with all browsers and mobile functionality then it has to do with design. That said, changes will continue to be made moving forward but we are on no timeline with aesthetics. We hope that you also appreciate the new improvements with regard to images, video, speed and mobile compatibility among other things. The are lots of improvements with this new, upgraded software!
    Thank you.
    It is welcomed.

    When I attach a picture, the choose file button shows up and I can select the picture directly from my phone, but there is no OK button to get out of that screen. So I can't post pictures.

    You shouldn't need it. This new DrumChat is "responsive" and so it should work really well on all mobile devices.

    Tom, I noticed since the new upgrade of the forum that the activities on the forum have dropped by a lot. I am not complaining or anything it is that because there are fewer post it is kind of boring. I think without the shout box it makes it less attractive for some members who like to read about the weather around the world and how it affects our members here. Just sayin..
    Keep on drumming and have fun doing it.

    I'm not nearly as active as I used to be, but if I'm being honest, I really dislike the new layout. It's very unpleasant to my eyes and quite frankly it keeps me from checking in more often. Now, of course I don't expect the admins to change anything to suit me or anyone else but the background and colors are very distracting.

    The upgrade is nice however the background pict is visually distracting.
    As pleasing and calming as it may be, it has nothing to do with Drums.
    Going with a plain white background would be the best choice visually.

    Personally, I like the new set up. I'm more active on this site because it is easier to post pics. Re: the background picture, Maybe it could be changed from time to time. I used to be on another site that did that

    the shout box is what set this place apart and its what originally kept me here ..9 years ago? wow. out of all the other sites it had a functional chat system that was semi-realtime. i guess facebook groups have taken over ?

    I agree without shout box this forum isn't as much fun or interesting as it use to be. We all or most of us miss it. I would like to know how our friends in California are dealing with the floods etc. Bring it back.

    Shoutbox? Meh, could care less if that ever came back. Weather? Too many other sources for that. Drum & music discussions, while far and few in between were somewhat interesting. What really has kept me from coming on here as much as I used to is the color scheme, layout and overall strain on the brain it causes after about 5 minutes of looking at it. Still some good threads on here, though the volume of activity is way down so it's become a bit boring as well. Too bad. Used to be the best drum site on the planet. Just one guy's opinion though. I'm sure it will survive without reacting to much of the input from many that I've seen on here. Carry on.

    Pocket you have never been a fan of chat box for your own reasons and you mentioned it so many times. Some of us do like to chat about anything but drums. We greet ourselves everyday and keep in touch with what is going on around us. Maybe the low activity has something to do with the layout and color of the new site of which I am not that crazy about but we have to live with it and I am sure Tom and Su_admin are working hard at trying to please everyone including you. Just sayin

    True and I will keep mentioning it till it comes back. I miss talking to my friends here on the forum. Shout box to me is a very important communication. You get to know what happens in other members lives dealing with weather, bikini report etc etc. I believe once it comes back you will see more activity here on DC.

    I don't rely on shoutbox for news and weather info. Of course there are millions of ways to obtain that. But I liked the personal connection you could feel with other members.

    Correct again........it is your right to say what you want and my right to say what I want. I was just highlighting the fact that your comment about my repeated opinion on Shoutbox was ignorant.

    Also, I doubt that Shoutbox will have or ever has had an impact on site volume and activity. Shoutbox was historically used by only a handful of members. That is a fact. I would suggest that what has had an impact on volume and activity on this site is the new layout.

    Before you throw out another ill conceived and arbitrary comment............think before you in "Post Reply".
