    On the site with my PlayBook as i type this. I have to say, it looks even better on here! The ratios just seem a lot better, if thats even it.

    I saw it briefly, then switched to the old one to compare, and can't switch to the new one.

    Is there a way?

    I agree that you will never please everyone. And design stuff is difficult… I'm far better at critiquing it than actually creating anything. That said… red was only a part of the old theme in terms of the graphics. I don't ever recall red fonts anywhere. Hopefully I've adequately articulated why it's such a bad idea. Not trying to deride your efforts here, mind you. I'm just not one to nod my head and say it's all great.

    I've seen comments about the white/spacing go both ways - some have commented it looks cleaner and sharper, others think too much white on white. If we let this simmer, we may also get a better sense of consensus.
    I'd suggest making a couple demos showing alternatives to white-on-white. Not necessarily the entire site, but maybe post screen caps of a page. I'd bet my last dollar that if it's done right, a large number of those who are fine with how it is now would pick an alternative.

    EDIT: it's also possible I'm more bothered by the white-on-white due to the increased spacing, which itself leads to more "whiteness" in between lines.

    Please verify and include the exact model/year of your Mac and OS X version number (available from "About This Mac", then "More Info" on the Apple menu).

    Looking pretty good. I almost thought I went to a different website when I clicked on my bookmark tab for the forum, haha! I agree with some about the bright white but it's a fresh change. I do kind of wish things were a little be smaller though. The topics and categories look a bit large, but I'm sure we'll all get used to it over time.

    McYukon changing forum skin to 3.8.6 does precisely nothing.
    Hang on to those original install discs like grim death! Using OS X.7 or later make a bootable USB thumb drive before running Installer!

    3.8.4 switches it back to the old style. Which I think I may keep using until some of the small kinks are worked out of the new one.

    Hello,

    This came as a surprise this morning, it's always good to see change and progress..well done.

    Yes I know I can be a bore at times but I'll post this link again.

    http://www.pnas.org/content/82/17/5983.full.pdf

    I'm finding the home page difficult to navigate around, it has an 'Impressionist' feel.

    EDIT-extract from article...

    "In our experiments, brightness assimilation is less than half as strong as the effect of contrast. Thus, the brightness of an object is to a large extent determined by the local physical contrast around its border. However, assimilation is not negligible."


    A change from Red to a medium Blue colour for header fills and fonts would probably nail it.

    A quick question also, why is the Review pane so prominent? I find it distracts away from the forum.

    Looks good. Definitely was confused for a bit. Thought I had gone to some other forum by accident.

    Fresh and nice. I would like a single "what's new" button though, not two steps to get only "today's". Thanks and cheers.
    Longtime Windows, then onto slippery slope with iPod/iTunes in 2006, then Apple TV, iPad, iMac, iPhone, rejuvenated a discarded MacBook and, finally, Apple Watch. Happy camper.

    I'm quite liking it, looking at new content isn't too difficult and getting to the subscriptions is easier.

    I also, unlike others it seems, quite like the white - red combo. Much smoother.

    This is weird. I reverted back to the old style, and I thought, "Ooh, this is nice!"
    In my opinion, there was never a problem with the way it looked. It was real nice, simple layout, easy to navigate, and easy on the eye with the backgrounds/layers.
    I'll probably be sticking to 3.8.4 for a while.
