I've updated the board frontend to the latest work in progress version. This is a total rewrite that purges nearly all old code, which is why it took so long to make. It does not yet have everything I want to add, but it is already five times more powerful than the old site and makes the place so much easier to use. With this update, we are closer to parity with other imageboards out there, both in features, and in site layout, but we are not there yet.
Some highlights are: - entire front-end rewritten from scratch, with nearly all of the old code base purged from this side (the backend has not been touched to avoid compatibility issues). - new responsive layout, with a more old school imageboard mode. The layout is based on the browser window size. On desktop PCs, it looks like a traditional imageboard, but on tablet or collapsed windows, it looks like the previous plus4chan layout. I may make a switch later to force either style, should you guys have a preference.

>>421024 A few things to know about this place: 0) What Twister said, 1) Your phrasing makes it sound like you were told this place is new, or possibly an 8chan sequel. It's certainly not: 8chan was founded in 2013, plus4chan has been here since 2006 (see the homepage for a nice intro). 2) Which boards did you use? If it was mainly hobby or content boards, you should be fine. If you were there for politics, you may need to adjust a little (as the old 4chan saying goes, "/co/ is love". There is a reason we only have one politics thread). If you were there for fast-paced action, you will also have to adjust; many boards have a few posts a month or less (but as a /comfy/ poster, that may be alright with you). 3) We used to be faster until 4chan and 8chan made /pco/ equivalents and most of the oldfags grew up.
>>421058 That is true, but I was under the assumption that the tank mode is there for fast travel purposes, in which case it would make more sense to fix up the arms, so they don't have to be powered on to stay in whatever formation they are in (so gravity and the force of the travel doesn't make them flop around). Which would make the tank shape have a fixed form which is easier to manouvre, but also means there is more power for the engines.
You can still have an intermediate form with the arms moving freely, but it is just a weird lower-profile version of the normal stand-up mode, with lower height and different weight distribution.
>>420978 I was not pretending to be retarded, I've just had enough exposure to retards on imageboards this week to forget that parody is alive and healthy. I am sorry, and I really need to stay here more often. It's comfy here.
