    I'll see if we can lighten the blue up a little to help take some of the emphasis away.

    I just checked over the board stats and actually we're seeing exactly the same, if not a little more posting since the board transition in overall posts as well as threads created.

    I was too a little worried about people dropping off, but I also checked the stats and they look right about how they should - nothing out of the ordinary.

    I am of course a little biased, but once you get used to things I find everything just fine to read and post.

    Next week though I am going to have a think about some ways to address the color/text balance that you guys are feeling is slightly off.

    Please take out the blue margins on the sides!
    My profile picture is about 5 years old, I'll get around to taking some progress pics eventually.

    These will go when we create a full width version of the site - hopefully in no more than 2 weeks.

    I think it would be nice if the line between the post and the signature was darker so it would differentiate itself better

    I'm pretty neutral, while I do like some of the new features all of the added colors, and doodads have made posting from my phone that much more difficult, also the search field pops up behind the board field for me. On a pc I like it a lot, on my phone i despise it.
    Out of the night that covers me,Black as the Pit from pole to pole,I thank whatever gods may be for my unconquerable soul. In The fell clutch of circumstance I have not winced nor cried aloud. Under the bludgeonings of chance my head is bloody, but unbowed. Beyond this place of wrath and tears looms but the horror of the shade And yet the menace of the years finds, and shall find, me unafraid. It matters not how strait the gate how charged with punishments the scroll,I am the master of my fate: I am the captain of my soul.

    I have my monitor brightness turned down really low so it doesn't hurt my eyes and I couldn't even see that line until you mentioned it!

    I'm getting used to the new site. I'll usually browse it once or twice a day and it's getting easier. There's just these little things which you almost can't put your finger on that make it harder to look at.

    I think the real reason why some people have difficulties with the new look is because the old look was "THE" look for so long.

    It's still the same WBB you've always loved, the only significant difference is the appearance. Nothing has substantively changed imho.

    I like it personally. It's awkward but just because its a new format. I like how it integrates so much. Very well done.

    Didn't read the whole thread but I'm thinking that they should have waited longer before asking people what they felt. I hated this design at first but now that I know where everything is I love it!

    It just seems like everything is very clean-cut and I like that. No superfluous icons or unnecessary "flare". Clean fonts and colors that aren't confusing.

    I like it.

    I agree, if I had to re-vote I would do the 'I like the old one better but this one's okay', but until they give it widescreen support, I'll stick with my old vote...

    Here's a suggestion, if possible... Since there's so much extra unused space in the area that gives a posters name, 'title' thing, avatar, join date, location, and post count, I don't suppose you could allow for larger avatars? Since this a weightliftin site and all, and there's many who have pics of them posing, etc. Just a suggestion.

    I still don't like not being able to refresh to the main page of whatever thread I'm in without going back to the top and clicking it in the map.

    Hey, can you explain in a bit more detail exactly what you mean and I should be able to add it back in or let you know how it can be done now.

    So, say you are in this thread, what exactly do you want to refresh? This page?

    Was there a breadcrumb at the bottom of the forums before?

    Also bear in mind that you can click the top button to very quickly get you to the top of the thread.

    Also do you know pressing F5 refreshes the current page you are on?

    I have noticed some threads are missing. In the "pics and vids" section, i was looking for a thread started by Nathrakh and it is gone. If I look into my older posts, less than 15 show up. Am I missing something?

    They are not missing, we just haven't entirely rebuilt the search index yet - this will be done by the weekend!
