Um, very confused at the moment. It just took me 10 minutes to find the reply button.  :o (I discovered that I had to "re" log in for the REPLY button to appear  ;D. )

I think it will take a while to get used to, so I will give myself time to do that before commenting,

Looking good as although it looks as if it has all changed it really has just been updated when you look closely

Only concern is TINY writing and font has very narrow character spacing

New look is ok but hard to find things like my unread replies

I DO NOT LIKE the new font in Red/Brown - too tall, poor colour choice and seems to render with variable thickness on this computer giving really poor appearance

Did I say something wrong? If so, it was unintentional ...

I think the new look is superb. Well done to all concerned.

Also, congratulations on setting all this up in the first place. You should be very proud of your achievement.

I think it looks great - thanks everyone for the hard work to make us look very 21st century! 

For those having problems with the 'small font' you can zoom in closer by pressing Ctrl and the + key simultaneously on your keyboard.  To zoom out press Ctrl and the - (minus)  key.

I really like it!  I like how the 'stickys' are now much easier to see, and the font doesn't bother me.  It looks much fresher and cleaner - we'll all get used to it before long, and wonder what the old one looked like!

PS - love the quick links bit at the bottom, it's much easier to jump to forums from there!
