Thanks again for the comments and please continue to report problems.

Just as an FYI, once we finish the optimization and bug squashing, we will likely 'reskin' this forum so that its look matches the rest of the site.

Thx!

Marko

I love the new look and great choice of colours as well.

Looking forward to the new colours in the forum.

Will the forum be shut down while you are doing the upgrading there?

I'm still getting significant lag, Marko--both on IE (it actually froze and I had to go into task manager to end task) and Firefox (not quite as severe--usually, just refreshing the page it fixes the problem). I don't notice the same lag on other sites

hey marko.
for me it happens almost every day if I log on to the front page.
especialy around 3-7pm..

if I save the site with just the forum I'm fine but not if I save the site with the front page.

Thanks for the comments on this new forum look which now matches the rest of the site.

Okay, I'll be the first to say that I don't like it.

I was hoping that more blue/green would be used as all the brown is very hard on my eyes.

The background colour is fine but is it alot of trouble to change the browns to blue/green?

That's the first thing I thought too, it's really hard on the eyes. Although I love the color, I can't look at the screen for longer than a few minutes before I have to look away .

Now I like the color scheme, very kind to the eyes....and different from so many other sites out there.

My roomie said she liked it too...

Can the "post reply", "edit" and "quote" buttons also be in the brown scheme?

They stick out, LOL

Oy, the brown is starting to give me a headache. Not sure if it's the color or the lack of contrast with the standard post font, but the font looks smaller and is harder to read, too.

Marko--pp 35 and 36 in the TJT--experiments with fonts and colors. If you're totally tied into the brown theme, some colors (like navy) "read" better than others.

I think it's just all the brown bars that are overwhelming. If I go to the home page with the featured article, I find it much easier to read. I think it's all the spots of color in the header bars that break up the page...
