We have recently been working on a new design for the site which has took everybody's suggestions into consideration and made significant improvements. We hope you like what we've done so far, which you can preview below:

Many thanks to @Road-hog123 for his fantastic work on the new look.

There are some things that still need to be fixed, the header image being the most obvious.

Don't forget to post any suggestions you have below so we can make even more improvements ahead of public launch.

Looks really awesome! Many thanks for all the hard work put in, will the photo change like usual, depending on who wins the Screenshot Contest each month?

Thanks! Yeah it will be changed as per the SoTM :)

Looking great. Don't know if it'd be possible, but could you have this link (https://forums.fellowsfilm.co.uk/recent-activity/) on a button at the top of the page with it saying "All Recent Activity" or something?
Sure, will add that to our todo list

Ah, my finest piece of work back when I had admin powers...

We've discussed a few option for how to revive the forums, and at the moment modifying the existing site to make it nicer to use is what we're working on. If you have suggestions, no matter how small, it would be well worth dropping them here so we can see if we can act on them, or if we need to make a more drastic change.

A little but very useful thing:
The 'report' button is no longer visible at all times, only when you hover you're mouse near it, unlike other buttons such as the 'like' button which is only faded. No problem with anything else, I think all is required is for it to be made permanently visible. Also, the report button, in my eyes, is for serious things which I find offensive personally and I don't see it as something I can use on other people conversations, so maybe a button or way you can notify the mods of something, rather than report it although I am sure at least 3 mods check every thread every day so I don't think it is entirely necessary.

We appreciate the feedback, but would you be able to be more specific into what you find confusing with the new layout/design? This is just so we can try and figure out what needs to be improved upon :)

There's a toggle for that in the settings, so I have toggled it. :)

When signing in there's a checkbox to tick for "keep me signed in". Why it's not checked by default I don't know.

Well, honestly I am not so keen on it myself- It feels a bit outdated to be honest. As a result of that, The icons next the topics don't fit in with the theme.
I prefer this because it looks clean and I like the flat and minimalistic layout:

I like the old design but it needs new touches from the new design to make it more modern.

I dont know if it just me but when I am on the "FF Secondary (Xen Material)" I cannot seem to find a button that says upload file? I had to change to another style to find the button.

That's something we are aware of and looking into fixing as soon as we can, but our main focus at the moment is working on the primary theme :)
