Personally I hate it.  Everything is too big!  Have to scroll and scroll and scroll to get anywhere.  It is horrible and makes the forum the last place I want to be.  Only like 6 threads appear on a page (on my macbook pro) so the front page is useless.  And where is the option for Polls?  Can't even ask the question properly.  Even the box to start a new thread is way too big.  Have to scroll off page to find the post button.

Agreed, on my 17" laptop at 1920x1080 this single post fills the screen, I know I am old and my eyesight is not what it used to be, but this is taking the piss...

l love it! lt's clean and simple. The first thing l did was control-arrow it down to a reasonable magnification, but so far so good for the rest.

I think spacious would be a better word than clean.

LOL, that too. lt's refreshing though, l'm used to seeing ads and flashing clutter down the sides and at the bottoms of pages.

i like the look/feel from a style standpoing but agree that the white space spacing between things (and around things) is a bit large.  other than that, the softer feel appeals to me.

Brobdingnagian !  I had to reduce the screen size to 75% to get it to fit on the page!  As for the rest, it will take a few days to get used to.

Now let's throw a wrench in it and say why is there no option for mobile device support where the special kids do most of their browsing?  Most post titles and threads I have to zoom WAY in to read the scroll around off screen to see the whole thing by the time I get zoomed in far enough.

Don,t like it so far, yes it is big, but bigger in this case is not better!
Jump to pages is still only at the bottom of the thread, takes even longer to get there now and there are no more navigation panes at the top....Step backwards i think unless i am missing something.

***EDIT***Found the navigation pane...

Think that worked just clicked advanced then the paperclip icon and took a pic from phone.  Although had to take a smaller pic as first image was to large.  (note I just had to go back into edit then at the top it told me i had one of 0 unused pictures and gave me the option to use it.)

The wording format is scrambled in IE11 but is correct in Chrome. I can't upload a photo using IE 11 but suceeded with Chrome.

Can't DJI just use one of a dozen forum software products that are out there? I like how now we have moderation and drone news stories aren't allowed

The big fonts and spacing are ideal for 98 year old blind pilots.

My fonts seem to be the same size, but the page is huge. It should pull in the content in to fit the window (to a point I guess) as you make the window smaller and stretch it when making it bigger.  My 2c.   Barney

It's a bit better - but not being responsive (resizing to mobile and smaller screens) is crazy in this day and age!
Google just did a update where they now take points OFF sites that are not mobile friendly.

I suspect we will see it evolve - they threw it up somewhat as a lark and now things have grown so fast that they are scrambling to take care of things.
The search doesn't work right - that's for sure. They should use google custom search - it's free (or cheap) and can be integrated right in.

I always dislike website changes, but sometimes they're an improvement.
Yahoo Answers changed last year---and it's terrible, now.

These changes don't seem too drastic...
