I just noticed (4pm PST) that now there are “like” and social media link icons underneath our posts, and our rank/badges got shifted to the right of our icons. I have to say, I am not liking the look. Pushing badges to the right is now going to compress our posts, visually. =(
Yep, looks way too cluttered. Only change I like is now when you are inside a thread, the links at the top are there for each sub-forum that you are in (say I am in a Halo 5 thread, it will then give me access to “Halo 5: Guardians”, “Games”, and “Forums” so I can click less to get back. This one say “General Discussion”, “Community”, "Forums). I also realize that I can now select “dark theme” for the forums.
The visual clutter around our posts needs to go. But everything else is good and useful. We now get a notification when someone quotes us, something that people have asked for ever since the previous site update.
> I don’t have a like button and I don’t see any social media stuff underneath the posts, but I do see that annoying line going across the page.
> I don’t like the new look since it’s making everything cluttered and compressed. Please change it back.
Huh, interesting. They should be under the white line. Where are you accessing the site?
> I feel the addition of the “Show more” and “show less” when the screen is too small or you are on mobile is kinda annoying. I mean when I do a lot of editing of my Halo Waypoint lists on mobile, this is a real annoying.
> I mean, thank goodness its one click, then everything shows. but still annoying.
> I am curious to why they moved all the stuff below the posts. It was great at the top of them.
> The quote notifications are great though. Plus a few others I love. So I guess I am 50/50 with this update.
Yeah, putting stuff below our posts makes them easier to miss, plus they’d be easier to miss when people have signatures. I preferred the differently-colored boxes to these bland black circles.

Perhaps. I am using Chrome currently on a desktop, and I checked and it also shows up with the most recent version of Firefox.
