    For me, the jury is still out on whether I like the facelift. It seems human nature to resist change and sometimes I feel I’m more human than anyone else. I’ll try it out and much appreciate the option to use the familiar view if I prefer.

    On a curious note, do you and JensenS feel the principal mission of the site remains forum based? Do you see any trend developing that might take the emphasis away from this and into the direction of being more wrestling news/info oriented?
    'old timer' would mean the long standing members of TWT. (Or any community where you'd become use to a similar layout)

    The principal mission of TWT remains: to bring the community closer together with the information they are seeking in the easiest way possible.

    For some people that is using the forum, for others it will be using the forum feed and other tools that are added to the front page.

    The change to the front page allows us to feature articles, live feeds, and other important threads much easier than in the past.

    As an original member of TWT who celebrates his 61st birthday this week, I consider myself an old timer in every sense of the word. Like my friend pm01, I resist change and like what I'm used to, but I'll give the new face a try and see how it works. It does seem to give more immediate information about what's going on in each forum, so it may be easier in the long run.

    As for the mission of TWT, I see it as mainly a social venue for the exchange of information, ideas and opinions that fit into each forum category. Personally, I'm only moderately interested in national college or high school results, or international news other than the big tournaments (Olympics & Worlds), but I appreciate that many if not most of our members value this information highly, and it's great that TWT can offer just about every level of wrestling fan what he or she is looking for.

    Is there a way to go right to the last post in a thread on the new front page?

    Absolutely.

    This new format however allows us to provide those who come in through search with a readier access to the some of the more detailed and popular content that our members generate.

    Hopefully they find more stuff that they're interested in other than just what they came for and stick around longer.

    Not yet, but I just put a request in to have it added. Should be ready in under a week.

    for people that use the toolbar, could you maybe add one of the options in that menu for "forums list" or "old home" or something like that?

    Speaking of the Toolbar, can you make the Indiana link to IndianaMat.com. The other link goes to porn now
    I will smash your face into a car windshield and then take your mother, Dorothy Mantooth, out to a nice seafood dinner and never call her again!

    Tell me about it, this morning, I woke up and I shit a squirrel, but what I can't get is the damn thing is still alive. So now, I've got a shit covered squirrel running around my office and I don't know what to name it.
