Well, I LIKE it.. change is good for keeping up with the times. I like the layout also BUT I would make a suggestion.. take it or leave it up to you and no pressure.. all the side info boxes, maybe you could have a small button on each one to press to collapse/hide/show all the info in each one or hide the info. Great new looking website though guys, it's ACE!

It's good. I just have one little complaint/plea. Please please please bring back themes for the rest of the site. It's too bright for me first thing in the morning lol, I like my Metroid theme.

Yeah I quickly grabbed the dark theme for the forum. Not a fan of bright. But oh my god, the site is so good now, I wasn't expecting this  ;D

Where?/How? I can't seem to find the themes.

HOLY SHIT GUYS, I'm scared, everything is new and bright and different.

I'm in the same boat as SGP, I think I need sunglasses to look at the forum
where do I find the themes?

Found it, Profile > Account Settings > Modify profile > Look and Layout

It looks way too cluttered. The old site had all the links on the left hand side which was very convenient, now they're all hidden away in annoying little dropdown menus and the site is way more confusing to use.

I changed the theme back to romh in my account settings, but that only affects the forum. The rest of the site is practically unusable for me now.

Is there an item that was on the left margin that isn't in "Sections"? Are you using Netscape Navigator 4.x or better?

I have two complaints...
First: NEVER default to bright themes. It's always a bad idea. Go for a neutral or dark instead and then let the people choose.
Second: Ball Avatar is really "meh", again you should allow each user, when uploading their avatars, to choose the shape instead. I recommend between: Square, Rounded Corners, Circle.

I really dont like this new look. Its a mess and its way to bright. Everything is all cluttered up and I find looking to the left hand side of my screen to read something is very awkward and annoying. The old look was a thousand times better then this. Sorry. :(

I was under the impression it was done due to rights issues.

I don't want to upset the staff, but I'm not a big fan of the redesign.

Everything is all over the place, it's hard too navigate stuff, the message board is a little confusing to use and the white screen is too bright for my eyes.

That is really cool of you of giving us the option to go back to the original design, can you make a feature where we can save the theme that we changed on your site on our browsers so everytime we open them the theme that we changed to is still intact.

It's even worse when you try using it on a mobile device, it's even harder to do stuff on there. Is it okay if you can make a option where we can use the browser version on our devices.

The old design was perfect, everything was easy to navigate, it didn't hurt my eyes and I know where everything is.

You need to make the redesign a balance between the old and new designs.

Sorry about this.

It's gonna take me awhile to get used to this new design. And I'd be lying if I said I liked this design. Sometimes change is tough.
