I wonder why the site was revamped. Why was the shoutbox flushed out? I prefer the old version.

The site wasn't revamped. (As usual, it wasn't touched at all.) All that happened was an upgrade to the latest version of the forum software. My guess is that there was probably something over and above the upgrade process that needed to be done (that wasn't) to retain the stuff in the shout box.

Good. I might actually climb this year since there is nothing more attractive!

The site wasn't revamped.

Thoroughly check out the site and see how it has changed. Also see revamp.

Intentional or not, I can only say that it's ugly.

Sorry. Other than some CSS styling in the forums, I don't see a single thing that's changed.

Ok (groan), I'll have to explain.
  • The User List function displays users differently
  • Active Topics has a different drop-down menu
  • There are additional My Stuff items
  • Active Posts is new
  • The Topic Options tab is new
  • The FAQ page works a bit differently and has some new items
  • The Search drop-down menu has changed and the function works somewhat differently
  • The Board Rules link at the lower left extreme of the page is new
  • The Switch to Full Reply Screen tab below the Quick Reply field is new
  • The Profile page is drastically changed
  • There are new option boxes at the bottom of a post
  • Recall that if you put the mouse pointer upon the Re: (user) field at the top of a post, you'd see the post number. This is no longer the case and now you don't know which post is replied to
  • The IP address no longer appears in a post

Or is all this just CSS styling?

No. It just means you pay a hell of a lot more attention to the minutia of this place than I do. You mention a number of features that work differently that I don't ever remember using!

A couple more changes noted:

  • Members with non-standard titles lost them
  • Moving the mouse pointer over the title of a post in a list of the same used to reveal the first three lines of that post; this is no longer true
  • For some reason the Partners! rectangle near the top is highlighted
  • Spoiler text option added (what's that?)
  • The Discussion and Gallery webpages have a different color scheme from the others

Some of these are trivial; some old features are sadly missed.
