    its diffrent, but kinda feels normal after being on ctforums for the last couple days...
    it was like trying to hold off a heroin addiction by eating poppy seeds...
    just doesn't cut it
    lol
    i wish the front/main page was more website looking, as opposed to throwing you directly into the forums...

    Yeah, I almost logged in with my Ultimate Subaru Forum credentials :)

    It's clean, loads fast and isn't inundated with ads. Thumbsup

    i posted this on the other page before this one came out.

    good color, lots of extra options, i like seeing the next forum below and scan over the heading to preview the thread.

    were you messing with the default setting for thread subscriptions?
    cause my inbox just blew to hell, apparently i am now subscribed to 5 threads...
    no idea how that happened but i changed the setting in my CP back to no subscriptions, now i just need to unsubscribe

    It's too busy on the eyes...too much to look at, and scrunched in. Copy/paste is tricky in the Quik reply block, and a small lag to get to the normal reply page. personally, I like the old page...

    If it looks too busy for you, hit CTRL and the + key (if you're using firefox or ie) to make the font sizes 1 step bigger. Does this help?

    As for the editor box, if you don't like the enhanced editor, you can set in your profile to use a basic box or a plain old plain text box. It's at: UserCP -> Edit Options -> At the bottom of the page.

    Lag, is probably your internet... i don't see it. anyone else?

    It's pretty neat overall, though I noticed that links in sigs and old links to smileys didn't transition properly. Slick .htaccess url redirects, too. :)

    I also think the color scheme is a little dark, makes it look a bit dated. I think just a little lightening of the header bars would fix everything:

    Maybe not that exact color, I just picked one really quick (#2475c8), but something like that.

    I don't like how the pinned topics aren't physically segregated from the rest of the threads. I'm slow so i get a little confused.

    I think lightening things would help a lot. The setup feels too generic forum-ish. But good job on the small downtime and no visable craziness.

    Birthday's lost the month on some people, so its going off the year alone. Edit your profile to fix your b-date and it should be better.

    As for the theme being too dark, me personally i hate light blue. reminds me of microsoft....

    i'll see what else i can come up with.
