Hmmm, that I like, actually. It's all pretty!

But if you take into consideration what Shaun said about new users not realizing there are two separate forum sections, you might want to add the vertical bars back in between each pairing but keep the horizontals.

Wow, I'm being picky, aren't I? Whatever, I don't have anything else to do at the moment besides complain.

We don't change things for the sake of it. We only do it if we have to, or unless we both feel something's more convenient. The top was crowded, and there was no place for the SBS link. And we both felt the critiques looked easier on the eyes than the large blue boxes they used to be in.

We do take what you all say into account, just not on every single thing . If we did that it'd be chaos :p. But we do appreciate that you voice your concerns. And now we'll make more changes based on what has been said.

OR, the block lines can be added back, with these horizontal ones also.

That looks a thousand times better.

When I first logged on I freaked out at the changes, now I really like them.

Nice job Andy.

Oh, I know. I like the way it looks now, though.

You think you were the only person who thought they weren't obvious enough? I've gotten emails from new members asking where to post their literature. I don't even remember you saying that. I'm no idea thief.

I've edited the blank boxes at the top, which nobody yet has voiced concern over. And I will add a Who's Chatting link as a drop-down menu for the Chatroom soon, as suggested by Carraka. For now, just click the [Number] when it appears.

Another cool thing I forgot to mention: If you use the User CP Menu to change your sig or avatar, it will take you back to the previous page you were viewing after you're done.

Awesome, another vote of confidence! I actually sort of like the gray style now. Those three buttons always gave me a headache.
