I've changed the blue colour to the same one as the old forum uses, much less garish.

I'm sorry if you don't like the look, give it a bit of time. Unfortunately when we make design changes there will always be people who prefer or it who don't prefer it, hard to make everyone happy!

The unquestionable fact though is it's a lot faster, has a lot more features and is far more reliable (no more session timeout errors for making posts etc)

Hey @Tom. Blue is alright, but why not Green - like menu on top of the page to make all same consistent style? and you know... green is a peaceful color, might make some edgy people calm down ;P

question for 100 points: why the name of the threat must be visible over each post? I guess one time, at the top, is enough. We are not monkeys with short memory :)

I see, forum look is gradually changing: animated gif's are gone and typo improved. If the curved dark bar in the thread post would disappear, the whole thing would look less cluttered.

I would suggest perhaps making the black color where the "by name >> Thu Feb 20..." a bit less... contrasty :) Perhaps a lighter gray, will help not making the dividers between posts stand out so much. Other than that it looks great.

I like this change much better than the old one and I'm sure it will be much better when everything is implemented.

I don't know how there's not a quick reply box! I just typed this through it. (Without changing pages)
However, You just need to get used to it. It's way better and more functional. (Even the colors are great!)
I don't know how you missed Tom's post "Forum Issues Thread - Please read!" .. You should wait few days or weeks till they get the website finished.
Website development isn't "easy" like game development with C2 ;)

I like the old look, and the new one too, just topics list titles are less readable for me (but no big problem with messages' titles).

Topic Title
by xxxx» Thu Feb 20, 2014 8:10 pm <-- too dark, big, other ?

New features are great! I hope we will can use subscriptions, bookmarks, etc.
Good job Tom!
