    For some reason I still have the old look (not that I'm complaining).
    I've always wanted to be smart, handsome and modest. But, I guess I'll have to be satisfied with two out of three . . .

    I had to go select the new skin, those with the ad-free skin option may have to do the same (since it's NOT default)

    Sure, I think that makes sense. Probably best we hold off on any sort of poll for a bit though. We'll be making some adjustments on an ongoing basis for the near future - with more time and perspective, and a little time to stabilize, we should be able to make a more accurate and actionable poll.

    I which there were more contrasting backgrounds to differentiate between thread topics/thread areas, and such. It kind of seems...like it's not finished yet...too much white.

    Hadn't thought of the ad free skin yet, good input. Thanks!

    I'm going to 3rd this. Agree with everything. I think a red(crimson red) background, with a white(but not too bright for night time browsing) floating on top would look sweet!

    It's so pretty!

    However, after reading some comments about the red font (which I understand is the old theme) and the excessive spacing...and to some extent how white-walled it looks...I have to say, it needs some tweaking.

    On a second note, the red font doesn't bother me much. But it's like I'm staring at snow in the sunlight.

    I like the new overall look though.

    I endorse this message, though I don't mind the spacing out of the content that much.

    I've talked with the design team a bit already about the whiteness when viewing threads, and they agree and understand the feedback. It will likely be tweaked to refine it a bit more yet to give more differentiation/contrast to break things up.

    Looks pretty good thus far. Bit of constructive criticism, there doesn't seem to be much separation between posts, only a slightly gray line. Makes stuff seem a tad jumbled, and too "spaced out"

    Also personally wouldn't have gone for the pupleish reddish color, but that's just me.

    A quick tip for everyone - coming from mac-forums.com, you'll notice that the links in the "menu bar" (I don't know what else to call it) will give you a good ol' 404. If you're accessing it from mac-forums.com/forums, you won't have this issue. A simple way to get around it is to click the link twice - once to get the 404 page and again to get the actual page.

    20" Intel iMac 2.4 Ghz/3G Ram/320HD, Snow Leopard. PBook G4, 1.5Ghz/1.5 Ram/250 HD, Leopard 10.5.6.
    I like it, but it still doesn't fit on my 12" Powebooks screen, I have to scroll across to read all of the text, which is annoying to be honest.
    Can this be looked at please?
    I would also like a direct "new post" tab on the home page, but I guess the drop down works and I'll get used to it.
    Nice job overall though.

    Kevriano, what resolution are you on with that 12" screen?

    Working on the subnav thing as well, it is one of the priorities I noted as well - the dropdown works, but I like directly clicking. When you spend all day or multiple hours on a site, which many people do, it really stands out how much more convenient it is to point and click rather than hover point click.
