Is it just me or has the web site forum change?

    I had not been able to log in to the forum since yesterday. Where I used to go to the portal page and sign in, now I get a completely different looking page with an error code. When I try to log in from there, it just wont work. Finally I tried clicking on the "forum" tab and then it brought me to a more familiar portal where I could log in. I will say that the forum now looks very different from before. I don't particularly like change, so that might be an issue, but I still feel a little "lost" in the forum. I don't see the usual things in the usual places. Is there a way to revert back to the old format?

    Thanks

    This is Amin's opening statement in the front page top thread.

    Yes, I see it now. The point is that I could not even log in for a while. Anyway, I'm a bit under the weather and although I saw Amin's post, I thought it was an old thread because I confused the membership date for the date of the post.... My bad, but easily explained by the newness of the layout. I think it will be OK in the end, but it's a bit of a surprise and unsettling when a lot of the familiar things are gone...
