I found the old site to be more obvious to navigate. Less looking through menus. I joined it because it immediately looked like it had a lot of users and showed a full range of what it contained. That in your face content variety is now hidden in drop down menu structures. I feel it now looks more generic. Less serious and informative at first glance.
But that is just opinion. I do appreciate that you are trying to improve. It is a lot of work. Thanks.

Aquarium
Is it possible to change the vehicle "aquarium settings" into something more aquarium orientated?
Its a bit hard in filling out all the info if I don't know the make and model of my aquarium, or the modifications.... even wheel and tire...

(Um what? is this a car forum or a fish forum)...

I like the change, but some things really need to be addressed IMO.

540L/140G - 'Tidal Jungle' (Crabs) | 254L/67g - 'Backwater Pool' (Fish/Snails) | 96L/25G - ''Twisted Minds" (Fish/Snails)

I've never had any problems with 'Impulse Buying'. They're just animals that I forgot I had planned to get.

I finally found "My Fish Tanks" in the drop down menu under Tools.
The problem is when I enter anything in the "maintenance log" it doesn't update with the new entry. The same problem with "Parameters" entry.
Are we going to have to create a new Aquarium after you fix that section this week or will my old fish tank be moved there?

That darn arrow/tab on the right, up against my vertical scroll bar -- it pulls-over a "recent discussions" list. Pretty useless on its face, and it covers any text that over there and the "Reply" scrollbar.

The forums are now three clicks deep and not that easy to find or access -- as per Jeanninel's criticism above. The menu on the User CP now only contains Betta.com threads

It's harder to get over to TFK and back (used to be one click on a pull-down menu). Have you seen the deplorable drop-off in activity on TFK?

The "reply" field displays a serif font, whereas the "posts" are san serif. This is confusing. And it doesn't columnate the same (of course it never did, but it's not any better).

On my User CP, I don't get a "recently subscribed threads" list when opening. After I visit the Betta forums, my CP then shows subscribed threads.

It was more convenient to get a quick read on new members at one glance on the old Personal page. Now I have to scroll past all that wasted space.

I used to get to Betta.com through TFK where the sidebar (avatar column) member info used to include years of experience, which it still does. But now I have to use the Betta.com side for Betta threads, which does not have this feature. I found that important when evaluating input from new members, or as an impetus to checking their personal page.

Have you been monitoring participation? I can already see a slowdown. I'm sure it will come back, but.....

It's nice to have a "Like" button in Betta.com. (I had to say something nice) ;-}

I just ran into this problem as well. I was trying to figure out when I had last done a water change since I just started a new routine (I do not have a set water change day now). The last update on my tanks in from 9 days ago. Today I went in and discovered what I put in yesterday was not there. I am hoping this gets fixed soon as I am sure a good number of people use it as their logging system.

Also

Can we have button for chat on bettafish.com like we do here? When clicked it would bring you to the chatroom?
From what I see the Betta section gets a lot of traffic but most members don't know chat is there because they log into bettafish,

Aquarium
Did anyone figure out how to add aquariums? And what happened to my existing aquarium logs? They are still shown in the aquarium tab by my avatar in posts but I can't find how to edit them. :(

150 Gallon - Mostly American Cichlids
135 Gallon - Angelfish Community
75 Gallon - Odd couple (Polleni/Angelfish)
55 Gallon - African tank
20 Gallon Long - QT
10 Gallon - Empty

Jeaninel, if you go to "quick links", "my fish tank", I think that that is what you are looking for. My tank shows up with it's title and then if I click on the "down" arrow icon, it goes into my tank details. There is an "add aquarium" icon as well, but I haven't gone farther into it.
