I've been using the phpbb theme since the forum came back... will probably continue to do so.

I like it. So much easier to read than the previous theme, especially on an iphone. Also I like that I no longer have to guess which button to press to quote etc and its easier to tell whether a thread has new posts or not.

However, the 'post a reply' and 'new post' buttons look like they belong on the HMV website.

Mostly echoing others in saying...

Pool/snooker table, yes; that was my first thought. But I find it easier to read, especially on my phone. I like it overall.

The colours are much easier on my sore eyeballs.

I like it. The lighter green background seemed unpleasant at first, but I'm slowly acclimatizing to it.
Good stuff skhmmxi.

The first time I saw it, I thought, "Oh cool, they're using the color scheme from England keep My Bones, I like it!"

And I still do. :)

I think the new theme is pretty sleek. It replicates the EKMB feel, pretty well. The slight adjustments with text and pictures, make it closer to the original theme, but with the added style of the album. I don't see how it's any kind of headache. It's pretty simple and the thin bars and smaller text, make it look pretty snazzy. Nice work Skhmmxi! I guess we all have our own opinions, but I think it deserves more credit. Ah well.

After my initial reservations, I have warmed to this a little bit. I still prefer black, for the record. Must be my inner goth

not sure i like the new theme (sorry!). I'm probably alone on this, but i don't like the 100% width. Also, overall it just feels a little cluttered. Good effort though. I'm sure with a little tweaking it'll look great :)
