The "old" template is still there. Just go under your Profile and you can change it back if you wish.

I am still updating the site. Will add the logo to the top and a few other items ... and there is one very cool plug-in which will convert the board into a portal similar to what Evil Avatar has. Look for small changes throughout the day.

Hooray for Babylon Theme!

I knew this place felt decadent.  ;)

Maybe this is answered elsewhere, but the text at the topic signifying who posted and new posts and such is a tad unreadable with the current color scheme (white on light gray). Interested to see how this goes.

Back to the Babylon theme, methinks. I really don't like the new one.

Back to Babylon with me. :P I can't get used to the new one. Other than that, can someone point out a full list of all the so called small features that was added?

1. You can add labels to your pm's
2. You can prune your message by deleting the ones that are [14]* days old (*insert # of days)
3. You can search within your messages.
4. PM's now have a "report to Admin" link.
5. The most recent posts has 10 pages now, not just the last 25 posts.
6. Birthdays are in purple and the date box is highlighted white.
7. Spam bots won't be able to register (a hidden bonus)

Thats all I can think of at the moment. I'm sure we'll discover more as we use it and Steve is still adding things to it. He's not done yet.
A Christmas present for the forum.  :)

There are actually a ton of new features. Most of them are for the admins and deal with the stability and security of the site (which is really great), but if you are curious you can view all of the new (and old) features at:

Also, the stars for the Babylon Theme are not the normal GS ones.

It takes a little bit of getting used to (like any change) but I am now really liking the new look. Great job!

I think the forum colors should match the front page: http://www.gamingsteve.com/ (Just in case you didn't know where that was :P )

The stars for the mods need to be fixed though. :(
