New forum style.
The other forum style sheets were pissing me off.

The home page & sub pages have been fixed as well.

Hate the most recent changes. Just IMO.

Avatar and options to the right is just weird. I also liked more of the darker blue background better not the white

This new style is terrible, just terrible. It looks like it was designed by a Wings fan on crack. And what is this "Font COLOUR" thing at the top? Are we Brits now?

It will take some getting used to, but it's not so bad.

Whoaaa... Okay, not sure what I think right now. I could get used to different style or what not I'm sure...

One big complaint and or question... What happened to the arrow I could click next to my unread threads? It would easily bring me to the new posts in that thread. Now am I just supposed to click the thread and page back and forth till I find where I left off? Or I hope I'm just not seeing this feature and don't know how to use this new founded technoligies...

Please help. I don't like not having this feature at all....

Oh fack. And the view active topics link at the top of every page is now gone. WTF. That's the way I used this site 95% of the time. I complained before that it was just at the top of the screen and I had to scroll back up to the top to click it again. Now it's gone after I click it once...

Well, shit. I don't like at all now.... Just my 2 cents and I know no one probably cares what I think.

It wasn't broken so there was no need to "fix" it.

This style looks like shit. It makes my eyes hurt.

Actually, it was broken.

Ok...ok...I didn't think it was bad at all, just different and would take getting used to.
I thought it would be a good idea to upgrade the style to something a bit more modern.
But...
Bear with it for a bit and I'll convert it to something else...I'll try and revert back to the same style as before.

Okay, I figured this one out...

Still don't like missing the view active topics link though.

It's there.
It's immediately to the left of the thread title.

I do like the new header picture, but could do without the new forum style.

The shading makes it a bit more bearable, but I still don't like it. It's franking ugly.

I know you are trying hard to make a great board, and I appreciate it.

I think it's just too monochromatic. I don't care if stuff moves around I just think there needs to be darker colors like in the header. Everything kind of blends together and it's hard to distinguish between posts.

plus freaking plus.

There is so little distinction/separation between successive posts (and separation from all the other word clutter on the page), that it just looks like random words everywhere. It's difficult to pick out where the words of a person's actual post begin. The overall effect is just a ginormous mess of words all over the page.

Having the members' names and avatars on the right side of the post makes it an outright chore to read the forum. English is read left to right, so the natural first destination for our eyes is the left side of the screen. Our eyes are drawn there automatically. When the name/avatar are on the left, you see it immediately, and you know by whom the post you are about to read is written before you read it, not afterward. As it is right now, you have to make a special effort to find out who wrote the post.

Also (now I'm just being picky), the "quote" button should be at the bottom of a post, not the top. Now, you have to scroll back up to the top of the post you just read in order to quote it.
