    It’s not funny and just plain annoying. Tired of these internet sites doing April Fools “pranks”.

    How the hell do I get rid of that annoying paperclip?? It's ridiculous, is in the way preventing me from reading and typing this message. Clikcing on it does nothing, there doesn't seem to be any option to hide.

    Also, this font violates everything we know about effective fonts and is not conducive to scanning/reading at all.

    Wtf?? You system is now converting 'p-a-p-e-r-c-l-i-p' to 'Belvedere'. This is crap.

    This "joke" makes the site unusable. I'm guessing it'll be changed tomorrow.

    If you can't wait to use the site, you can change your settings in you profile->preferences->style to another theme and that will make it readable at least.

    For the benefit of users, can we end this early today? I tried accessing the site on mobile but it crashed on me for several minutes. It's back now but it may crash again soon. Thanks

    Hopefully, this change is a one day deal. Lose the dog, go with a more readable font, and keep the members number of messages and associated likes visible in their profile.

    What's with the new homepage? Maybe I'm an idiot but I can't find anywhere to access "sign in" "sign up" or "forums" from the homepage. I have to go to forums.studentdoctor.net, am I missing something or is this the new set up?

    The new format is harder on the eyes I think. Also, there a lot of empty space on both sides of the screen - something to consider.

    Is it possible to make a few "master threads" on HSDN - to organize all of the same information in a few places, rather than the same threads popping up over and over again.

    1) official "chance/what are my chances" thread
    2) Decisions thread (deciding between school a vs b, etc)
    3) What classes / courses are recommended/should I take?

    Same. Don't mind seeing more stories in a news-feed like setup on the homepage, but at the very least a link to the forums and sign-in should be easily accessible on the homepage.

    This new format is awful. I was so sure it was an April Fools Day joke.

    On Chrome, the home page has no links on it at all. No "Contact Us", no forum links, nothing.

    Is it possible to have the top menu bar that displays notifications slide down as you scroll down the page?

    It should have converted back to default. If you’re still seeing the old school template, go down to the left bottom corner and select one of the other options.

    To help reset, we’ll remove the old school template temporarily until all members caches clear over time.

    It was an April fools. Unfortunately a few members browser caches did not clear and may still be seeing the old school template.

    @Lee, I know that maybe not too many people were using it, but I was still preferred the gentle blues of the pre-2013 style. It seems to have disappeared entirely today. Is this a permanent change?

    So glad it's back. My eyes are old and I like the old school style... easier for me to read.

    hSDN is full of "Undergrad School X vs School Y" threads, I think you guys should make it like a sub-sub-forum how it is in Pre-Med to sort of organize things. They kind of just take over everything in my opinion and push a lot of other threads to the bottom.

    Imo having master sticky threads for WAMC and X vs Y is probably a better option.
