It's been a couple of days now, and I'm pretty sure at this point
that I really don't like the new format.
I don't see what it has accomplished in terms of improving the forum,
and I don't find it as convenient nor as enjoyable to use.
That's just me, of course, and I know that some will disagree.
 
I do have a measure of curiosity as to why the change was made, however.
Was it a cost-cutting measure?
Definitely not cost cutting. The MGS forum software was severely outdated. They have been working behind the scenes on moving to the newer interface for awhile now.

The new interface didn't lose any functionality of the old interface. I get you don't like change, but this was all much much needed refresh

MGS app or Tapatalk app? I'm browsing and posting via Tapatalk right now

I am also using tapatalk without issue and no interface changes. Basically if I just used tapatalk I wouldn’t have noticed any changes.

The website is obviously different and I still need to go through and learn the new interface and how to set it up.

I understand that they can't please everybody.

The most important loss of functionality for me was not being able to list the posts in "past 24 hours" order.

That's the only way that i ever used the forum.

The smaller stuff such as "likes" and "signature" are significant but less important.

I think you can still list the posts for the last 24 hours. I don’t remember the interface exactly but I seem to remember.

I personally always list the new content and start oldest to newest by going to the last page and reading backwards. Worked best to make sure u read everything before marking the forum read. Can accomplish the same thing now, just a few extra clicks to get there.

I guess that I've just not figured out how.

Like I said, all of the previous functionality is there and then some

Set content type to Topics

Set "Read Status" to either Everything or Unread

Set " Time Period" to Specified Number of Days and then Type "1"

someone made a coment on here about the Facebook tab on the side of the screen. Now i see what he means. On the mobile app,this thing is huge and very distracting.

Appreciate the update MGS, but I am not liking that there is no longer the option to go into the forums to see "trending posts" anymore. I get that "unread posts" are similar, but that seems to me to be too big of a change. Also I wish that the user pics were as big as before. Just my first gripes... It'll take some time to get used to like everything else that gets updated.

Edit: So I'm slow... No more signature lines...dammit! Those were fun. I guess we have to bury that info in our profile now, huh?

Working ok for me.

Try logging out completely and re log in. To see if that helps.

If you were having the same issue, here is how to "fix" it... 
It really wasn't a bug, so I must have changed something when I was testing it the first day it came out...

Under 'Read Status' select the 'take me to the first unread comment'
Then 'Save as New Stream' and you can rename it whatever you want...
I kept it as 'Unread Content' then you click on the check mark on the right to make it your default stream...

So whenever you click on the Unread Content button, it will load the filters you've set before...

Hope that helps!

This was a forced change for us unfortunately.  The software we were using was not being supported any more and was beginning to cause some issues.  Kind of like having an old mac or iPhone. This software phased us out. 

Hopefully you can be patient as we figure out all the bugs and get them fixed as quickly as possible.

Maybe it's an issue with Android Pie, not sure. I reinstalled, and it still doesn't work. Can't open any threads and can't sign in, although it caches my credentials. I just keep getting network error

Couple of cool new features:

You can not only see likes received, but total likes given. I thought I was generous with likes; turns out I need to like more stuff.

There's also a feature for "winning" the day: the person who got the most likes on a particular day. I've apparently "won" three days, the last being sometime in June. Fun stuff.
