Just rolled out the new style. If you come across any issues, let us know here, and Andrew and I can look into it.

It may be nice to make it more obvious how to roll back to the old style if you don't like the new one. I prefer the old style, but it took a bit of digging to find how to switch it back.

Or, maybe offer some preview screen shots of new styles and how to change to them in the future, instead of changing everyone to a new style?

I DO like the new look.

Haven't scoped out ALL the new features/toys yet, but it seems ok with me. 8)

Damn, you gotta warn a guy before you pull something like that... :shock:

But I like the new style too.

I like it, a lot -- it's clean, stylish, and useful. I'd like to see my own ad added to the top bar (yes, I do promote my classes here) but I think I need a new, bluer graphic for that.

I do like the new style except for one thing. When you're browsing a topic, it's REALLY difficult to see which posts are new. The only indication is that very, very small red check on the top right side of the posts. The old style had a much easier way to spot new posts.

A very good point. I rolled back to the old icons for that...

It was also mentioned that the quote, edit, report buttons are undersized. I agree. I will be making new buttons, and recoding the template... that should resolve this. If time permits, they should be on today.

Thanks for the suggestions.

Really hard to see links to articles and documents. Seems that they are not a different color or underlined.

If it's just me, nevermind.

I saw that too. Seems like they are a slightly different shade...could make that more noticeable.

I also noticed some of the other buttons are undersized too (Post Reply, New Topic, Profile, Send Private Message, etc.). Perhaps you are already addressing this...

It's the "HOPE AND CHANGE" that scares the bejeebers out of me. :shock:

I'm kinda liking the new Style. :)

Like the new style, but thought I was at the wrong place for a few seconds.

I have updated the links to be underlined and bold, and shaded on mouseover. Great catch.

The buttons are being a bit tricky, I'm working on it, please bear with me.
