Dear Lord. I was so tempted to quote the last person who posted, but I resisted the urge.
When Forums Lite was activated, I couldn't view any of the emoticons, which was...strange. I could only see the name of the picture in bold. I don't really have that much of an opinion on it overall. It's just different, not terrible or amazing.
New! Labs feature Forums Lite will let you experience faster Forums. It's a new clean and uniform look with no signatures, aquariums, and no post actions. Try it out and let us know what you think.
Important Note: Forums Lite will not let you participate in Gaia Events, but you can always easily switch back to the regular Forums. It is an experiment, so it might be disabled from labs at any time.
