I agree with the homepage being slightly empty.

main complaint is the home page is just one long read of all the active threads on the site, would much rather have the old layout of 10 most recent news threads and then the 10 from the rest of the forum.

Agree that the homepage is really sparse. I know it's early but it's saying that I don't have permission to access the for sale section. On the plus side I was able to login

edit: I also was trying to search the appraisal section and received this message

connection to sphinx01:3312 failed (errno=111, msg=Connection refused)

Clicking "Mobile" at the bottom of the page to change the layout and then clicking "Desktop" after you've done so does not change it back to Desktop layout and also resets multiple User CP settings (time zone and DST settings are the two I noticed.), everything, in general, is way too large, and navigation is clunky with the inability to mark your Subscriptions as read (as far as I saw) and no easy click to subforum from the Subscriptions tab anymore. Where has the smiley button gone?

I expected to continue using the site daily as I had been before, or at least in some capacity.

What's actually happened: The conversion has converted this site in to the next in the line of "extremely script-heavy websites" now.. some of you should look at any random OCN page with the ublock origin sniffer now and just watch the sheer amount of crud they pull in from at least 30 different 3rd party outside websites just to browse the forums now. Seriously.. I counted at least 5 different "Tracking and user metrics" websites alone to track our browsing history and what we're doing on OCN now.

This is just sad, and depressing. This used to be a nice website to come to for tech information. *sigh* I'm probably not alone here but.. Seems it's finally time to go disable notifications for the website and never return and mark this as another script-heavy site to avoid browsing for the future.

Not gonna lie, it's ugly and seems to have even larger ad sections with more "clickbait" blocks than I remember.

The news block is a vital part of, the thing where you see both the news and recent articles on the front page. Without that, this website is missing one of the main reasons I even came here - I'd defer elsewhere if there are no plans to reincorporate this.

Another weird glitch, I just posted this and the post said it was edited (I'm guessing not by a mod, but by another member,) if you click the link, it goes to an "invalid link" error message.

No access to the Marketplace. Was told I did not have permission. I imagine that you guys are still working on it.

New forums look like something from 2003.

The News section no longer has a consolidated sub-forum that allowed you to view the most recent activity in all the News sections.
