I like the new although some of the things they hashtag out really aren't that bad, but at least you can still put the idea out there.

So, as someone who's been here a little while, I personally prefer the older designs for the forums as far as aesthetics go. However, I like a lot of the new features, and I think that KW has with a few exceptions steadily gotten better with each change.

I would love to know more about your comment regarding the design of the forums. We are always willing to listen to constructive thoughts from our users. Especially those who have been here for a while - like you!

The filter is an ongoing work in progress. It gets better every week, partly because of the words that users tell us about. Yes, it does block some words un necessarily - but some of those words have a double meaning. The filter monster only thinks of the bad side of things, never the good side. We are working with him to make him more understanding! Wink 

How many of your real world friends have you invited to KW today??? Get bizzy!

I'm one of those kinds of people that prefers very simple layouts. The old layouts were just that, very simple and square, really emulated to me that whole 'Early-Mid 2000s' feel of websites. Obviously it's been a while since I've seen the actual layouts from back then, so I'm just speaking off memory. 

I understand the filter stuff better than some, I'd like to think. I realize how difficult it is to make a kid-friendly environment on the internet, which is almost inherently a non-kid friendly place. You can't hire people to monitor everything and use human judgement, which, would obviously be the optimal solution. So, a filter is the next best option. It's hard to make a filter to understand context, especially in a language such as English since so many words and word roots have several meanings. So it's inevitable that some things are going to get caught that shouldn't be. I do think you guys have made huge improvements to the filter, though.

I do enjoy some of the smaller add-ins, though, all in all, I might prefer the older kw.
