Here you can give us your opinion about the new look of the forum.
Let me start by saying, that I miss the old "new posts" widget in the left panel of the forum. It was very easy to see the new stuff there instead of searching for it.

If possible it would be great a card database, where you can search a card and read various Strategies/Tips, deck ideas around that card and an up-to-date price from all the community. Maybe it could be compiled only by mods and/or designated users in order to avoid unproper/wrong/already-written comments in that section.
Personally, the site is really bright. It's lots of white on white, which isn't a bad thing necessarily, but it just overall seems too much. Maybe if there is a way to add in some darker grays, that would be a good balance. Plus the old forum was darker, and this is a much different look to it.
Also, was just using the member search feature and it's a bit weird.
When you search for everyone via a filter, it goes with ascending order. So i went to see "most posts" and then i saw only 0 posts, 0 threads. Had to head to the bottom and to the last filter. If it was in descending order, would be much easier.
Q&A is slightly different then general, as general could mean anything involving md, and qna is specifically for people asking questions.
Do you know if we could have a hotbar on the side of the forum for new posts. However not include anything from the trading section? I remember quite well looking for new posts and seeing 4 price checks, or shop advertisement posts. Made it quite difficult to find things to post to.

good feedback, i can work on changing the theme to a bit darker - since it's hurting some ppl's eyes =P
i will be changing the landing page to portal once i've configured it and will try to have separate sections for trading and non-trading latestpost
in terms of card data... hmm will have to think on it. i will be bringing back the card search bar we had before, but better
yeah tourny and league is removed for now - till w revamp them. multiquote adds buttons to the bottom of your reply box - try it out
shoutbox moved to portal
full page shoutbox is using a darker theme still
Thanks for all your hard work =)
Amidst the various english MD communities (including reddit, facebook, etc), our forum remains especially relevant because of 2 main features: shoutbox and the daily/draft mutant thread.
If indeed our daily/draft mutant thread is one of the main "value propositions" we offer (and also the main contributor of traffic to this site), in our update to our UI, should we consider promoting it to a place of greater prominence beyond a simple stickied thread in the forum? Perhaps we can dedicate an icon to it in the topbar?
