How does phpBB3 look like IPB? It certainly looks a lot better to me.

Well, IPB copied phpBB's style, so naturally they look similar.

@JPortal: I agree that - the last time i tested the beta (some month ago) - administration wasn't that easy as it might.

However I would not compare it to IPB. Since this is free board we should help to improve phpbb and submit ideas for a better board. Just stating that you doint like it doesnt help anyone.
there are 10 types of different people ... those who understand binaries and those who don't

IPB came out before this, the user panel is very similar

We're not even in beta yet. This is still alpha-level code.

Read what I said above. Also, I don't see how the UCP can be any more organized than it is; perhaps you could state why you dislike it as opposed to just making wide-ranging, pointless remarks.

Well, if you don't like 3.0, then just stick with the 2.0.x series. :!:

Too complicated (again)?

At first it seems complex but it isnt once you know how. Plus I think it was mentioned at one point there might be a "simple" mode. When it is released there will be a tutorial/faq etc explaining it for those who find it complex.

Personally I like the new system, rather have power than simplicity.

It's a user control panel? What do you expect? They _all_ look relatively similar, of course that's before you've seen the new style.
