No, no, he did. In the everything else section, at least. Officially, this makes him king.

Into the abyss.
There is, of course, a difference between having a laugh with someone, and having a laugh at their expense

Ick! I liked the old forum layout.  :(
There's always somebody :P
Just let the change sink in for a bit. Immediately demanding the old style back makes sense, since that's what we're used to and change is scary.

I thought the forum looked weird when I just saw the new style, but now, a few hours later, it's kind of grown on me.
Signatures and the user info next to posts seem to take up more space now, and some things are a bit harder to find, but overall it's a good change in my opinion.

EDIT: Oh hey, new smilies! They look pretty good!

The design was carefully selected and adjusted. I wanted something that was "different", went with the overall colors of the site (finding white, black, and orange is NOT easy) and yet was clean and simple to use.

Yeah it's a bit harsh compared to the old "default" site and layout, but that was sort of the point.

The main text area is still white and simple to read and more or less hasn't changed, it's just the headers and highlight colors that changed a bit, but's actually more or less the same site as before.

Did anyone notice/try the Facebook, G+ or Twitter buttons on the first post? Anyone want to give those a try?  :)

So what else is on your list of things to do, Steve? Anything you can tell us about?

Seriously Orange? I think I am going blind from the Orange font on White background text. Same goes for White text on orange background.

Of course, what kind of awful forum wouldn't have orange creamsicles?



Not one I'd want anything to do with.
Sam is basically right, he's just cranky.

I like orange.  What color would you prefer?

Sure it's the orange making you go blind?
Probably not a Goat, either.

I don't see any orange text on a white background.
Also, if you're being blinded, you may want to turn down your monitor's brightness :P


And I'm the most Dutch here, since I'm actually living in the country. So y'all got nothin' on me.
