Wh-wh... where's the old, classic site?! This is intentional
?! Oh my god! I thought my connection was doing that thing where it fails to load a CSS style sheet, so the page loads up in plain text format! Wah!!
Hyperbole aside, I can honestly say I do not like this theme. It's "sterile," it has no personality, the forum looks generic, and the front page is squished and clunky at
1366px width. And, actually... the site looks a little better at a more narrow
resolution as the right-hand boxes on the front page get stacked into one column. The default forum theme is also very bright and changing it to a darker one doesn't (yet?) appear to carry over to the main site... which is also very bright.
I know time is ever-progressing and things need to change for this-reason-or-that, but I'm really hoping that more work is done on the default themes to give it more of that familiar personality of the old site.Edit:
For the curious, you can
change your forum theme back to the old classic theme ("romh"), as well as others, by going into the theme picker
under your Profile.
