I agree with Mr Marowak. If the avatars could go back on the left hand side it would make things a great deal less confusing!

I'm having issues with the grey on grey, it's kind of hard to see. Even on my computer. But I do have horrendous eyesight. Quite like the revamp though.

The theme is something to be worked on, but after many days of grinding through obscure issues in the forum conversion, I don't think either of us really had the stomach to tackle it immediately.

If it's proving a nightmare for anyone for the time being, you can change your personal theme back to the default prosilver theme by hitting the "User Control Panel" link in the top left and changing the theme under Board Preferences, Edit Global Settings, My board style. I will warn you, though: prosilver is horribly blue and white, and isn't really the right colour scheme for a hardcore forum. :)

The table width is horrible. It's too wide.

Apart from that, not bad. Definitely an improvement but lots of grey.

Other than having difficulty to read grey on Rey, it looks fine and seems to work. Prefer the avatars on the left but that's less annoying than the grey text. But then again, I'm old and blind and usually either on my phone or iPad so not the ideal viewing environment.

Glad to see it back up though. Sorry it became a bigger hassle than anticipated. I just did an upgrade of my shopping/ording system on my site and it fucked it up and I've spent several days trying to figure it out and fix it. So I know the pain.

Can we have the old colour scheme back, the greys are too close with the gamma on my Mac and it's bloody hard to read.
