I like the old format better.
And I cannot log on the new forum. When I tried to register as Sverch it told me that the user with such name already exists. I guess this user was me, so I tried to get a password. No success. I tried to register under another name it said that email I gave is already there ans so on and so on.
I am going to cross-post hoping that "to whom it may concern" will see my SOS.

scerch (sverch?),

Don't use register. Use login. Provide your username (sverch?), then click on forgot password and have a new randomly generated password e-mailed to you. Then use your username and new password to login. Then click on User CP (user control panel), click on settings from the next screen, and change your password to whatever you like. I found it confusing at first too. We are all naturally resistant to change, but I am starting to like the new format and features already.

Like me, you may need to contact admin to get your real email address into the system so you can even use the 'Forgot password' link.

Indeed, that's the way I got my password too. I contacted the admin too.
