There is, though, one bug I noticed trying to open "The Stranglers" and two recently made polls; upon opening them, I get the message

Microsoft VBScript runtime error '800a0006'

Overflow: 'CInt'

/FORUM/includes/poll_display_inc.asp, line 150

while the rest of the page doesn't load.

Pretty sure it has to do with polls overall, I can't open a single topic in the "Prog Polls" section - plus I believe the topic about "Stranglers" has also a poll.

Hmmm, unable to log in to the admin control panel now - previously it logged in via the forum and then sent me to the admin panel, now it just gets stuck in the forums.

Is it just me, or is all the text several points larger? I liked it better before.
 
It also appears that sig resizing is gone, in favor of a tiny scroll bar for the huge picture. While that solves the problem of having to scroll past 500 pixels to read somebody's post, it's still not nice for the people with slow/limited internet.

M@X, there was always a "quick login" box below the top bar, in the right side (precisely, below the actually login button). Any chance you could but that back up or was it one of the features designed to be removed?

When I click on Forum Search < ="" ="text/">document.write('Search')Search)Search, I am only getting that search function with limited parameters/ functionality (and even then it's not working properly).  However, this one still works properly --> http://www.progarchives.com/forum/search_form.asp

EDIT: When I click on the Search hypertext link above copied from
  FAQ FAQ  Forum Search < ="" ="text/">document.write('Search')SearchSearch  Calendar < ="" ="text/">document.write('Calendar')CalendarCalendar
, it is taking me to the larger search form page, but when I click on it at the top of the forum page, it takes me to the quick search.  Problem on my end, perhaps.
