Is there a way to use the old forum 'style' where the user data, avatar and so on is on the left side of the post?

Stephan,
First off, thanks for all that work you are doing! It'll be interesting getting used to the new format. I like the old style because I think that it was visually cleaner and easier to read, but that after some time everyone will have forgotten what the old style was like and feel easy with the new look - just natural human adaptability.

I'm interested in knowing more about "user groups" - I haven't found anything in the literature about it, and it's relevance to being able to upload more or less images plus any other features coming online?

Post a new pic of yourself Stephan, I'm sure you lost a lot of weight lately :D

There is no way of setting up the old style for individual users. At present the whole system is set to use the Horizontal format rather than the Vertical format. At present we have no plans to change this, although we will be looking to add more "styles" to the forum so you have a choice of designs in the future.

Exactly - the old design was good but we've decided to implement this design. We will continue to evaluate changes on a weekly basis but for the time being we're confident that users will like the new design.

User Groups are a way of allowing us to provide different functionality to different parts of the community. The majority of groups will be free but there will be some Premium (i.e. paid) ones that will allow you to have increased functionality. I'll be posting more information when they come online.

I really don't think you want to see what I look like now!
