Hey guys... Just activated the new style to get some feedback. I am tweaking about and will be emailing the style designer later with some observations at which time I may swap the site back.

A couple of things:
  • The home page system has changed. The shoutbox is gone, but will make it back when I can find a better version for the new front page system.
  • Things like the gallery and quiz are more than likely screwy (with missing images and such)... not to worry... ill be sorting those out next.
What are your thoughts so far?

I like it - just will take a bit of getting use to. Thought my PC was on the blink again. Also, like the User CP and the Top Reputations, plus the longer recent thread listings

If you scroll to the bottom of the page, there is an option for the expanded style... try that angel

Nice and easy to read, easy on the eye.

I can't decide if it's as destinctive as previous, has the site lost some of it's identity, or is it just a case of geting used to the new style....probably the latter. Actually, I don't think that the header is as distinctive as it was, it seems a lot smaller.

Expanded width not happening!!

Seems a lot quicker to download though :)

Just my opinion!!!

Ya know Sam I really like it. It's tres stylish. I knew something was different when it began loading & realised you'd activated the new & improved site.

I hope you like the look of your new baby & if you don't we know you're sure to do something about it.

mkay... Think I finally got the changing style thing sorted.
Try it again.

The 'New Posts' option is in the navigation bar or in the Quick Links Menu.

And I am more than open for any constructive criticism :) I too think it may be a little on the light side (a little cold). I am writing up a list of these things for the designer (how else can he know ;) )

So keep your thoughts coming :)
