Sorry but you will get used to it.

The old version was replaced for a thousand reasons.  Mainly:

Not mobile-friendlyExtremely uglyHeavy on the server, really used up so much resources each time someone run a searchInsecure and easy for a skilled hacker to break.Slow loading and slow browsing (page by page by page)

... I could go on.

Please try to get used to the new one. Embrace it and understand that change is good, even if it sometimes takes a bit to adjust.  This new search was extremely long overdue

I'm sorry I still just can't get over the fact that you prefer the old one to the new one.  It's killing me, not just because it's comical but because it's frustrating for me as a designer spending weeks working on a project only for someone to say "it's shit, bring the old one back"  CryCryCryCry

Welcome to the site by the way and congrats on your first post.  Hopefully see you at the rally in September (first beer on you now haha)

September I'm in Oz :)

Sorry but I just find the "Gallery" View OTT & messy

at least do like ebay does and provide an alternative "list" view

and actually I never said it was shit , I simply asked for the option of using the old version and that personally I don't like the new version.

There's a world of difference between the 2 statements :p

(Oh and I've been here for years, just haven't bothered with the forums previously, got plenty of others on the go :)

haha i know, it's what i hear in my head when someone says "go back to how it used to be".

I know what you mean about the gallery, but most people prefer to have less "paging", which means a higher number of results per page.  The only way to reasonably fit 200 people on one page is to have them in a gallery view.  A list view with larger photo would be really ugly (and very long)

Check out this thread so you can already begin to have an input into the new forums design (starting work on it asap):
