I knew InvisionFree had become part of Tapatalk and that a conversion was coming, and I guess it went live recently. So.. when I'm done feeling shocked about the look, and when I have some time over the Christmas break, I figured I'd whip up some new graphics and mess around with the features more. 

Tho, in spite of my shock, the mobile app is really convenient guys. Just sayin' 

¯\_(ツ)_/¯

AND. We can upgrade for a domain name and stuff.. It's $5-$10 a month, and I'm considering it, because I'm so nostalgic about this place. Thoughts?

There. At least the desktop version has a familiar blue/grey, and I enabled BB code for signatures. 

But I had to relink my signature manually, since the old links aren't redirecting. Plus, forget all the formatting on those pages, because HTML doesn't seem to work anymore. :c

And.. being that links aren't redirecting properly.. well, that sucks, because, for example, I'd have to go through all the boards to find all the old RPs I linked to in my log and get the new URL to update my records.

No likey. Why did they mass default everything??? It isn't user friendly at all.... I wish I knew more about html formatting, I would offer to help. Is there a youtube video to teach it? Lol

It took me longer than I care to admit to even figure out how to log in again... I don't like this so far, but maybe formatting can fix most of it?

Sucks for the linking issues and having to search for the old posts, Raven. I'm sorry to hear that... also not helpful it doesn't show the most recent forum or poster on the main page... >:/

There's not much room for changing layout with formatting, at least I don't think. There's an option for CSS for adjusting colors and sizes, but there's strict rules to not remove any Tapatalk branding. You have to pay monthly to get the branding removed. 

Your "forums" tab doesn't show the recent forum titles? Just posters? I thought I set it to show both. I can see the forum title and post name in mine. The mobile app isn't as customizable tho.

Oie. I'm gonna have to mess with it next week. =_= NEXT WEEK. Ian, I'm gonna get your RP review to you next week, too. I'm behind in life right now, but I haven't forgotten.

Yeah, I use mobile almost exclusively.  I'm using desktop right now, and it looks totally different, much more user friendly, like it was before.  But mobile sucks.  =_=

No worries lol.  I was looking over it myself and cringing a little lol

Off topic... 
THIS, is pretty awesome lol.  I feel bad for not knowing about it sooner and some here probably knew about it long ago, but a very well done animation of what I assume are fan custom Zoids!

Hey Raven, If you need any help with graphics, I recently graduated with a degree in Graphic Design/ Advertising Design & Communications, so let me know, I'm itching to work. 

I'm not a fan of the new layout myself, but it is what it is...
