I like the new look, actually (I didn't do it this time - whoever did, don't be discouraged by this thread!).

Some of the colours need a bit of tweaking, perhaps, and I remember the hours of 'fun' I had with that with the EKMB theme, but the general look and feel I like a lot.

It seems to have lost any posts from Tuesday until it was launched today.

I'm guessing its not quite finished yet as theres a few bits missing (mainly the upcoming Australian dates) but it looks pretty snazzy. I like the fact that you are straight onto the site without having to click on an entry picture

I liked the numbered gig list.... Is there any way that could be brought back?
Other than that it all looks good.

Loving the new forum colours, (though it definitely isn't pink for me?!) so much easier to read.

phew... its slightly less pink!

hope that was a temp glitch - where the white is now, was the same colour as the Banner and background and all the headers were in red/dark pink, it was a bit much! - I prefer the black text :-)

The white is a bit bright for me, but I'll get used to it and I can always turn my screen down.

My personal preference is to have all the box/grid lines back as well, some of them are missing or are white on white (I guess), but that's just me :-)

The rest of the site looks great, can't wait until the rest of the stuff is up and running (Gallery, Videos, World Shop and Twitter feed), and I hope the stuff that looks like its missing (Bio, Archive blog posts, FAQ, Contacts for press etc, Tabs, EP's and their Lyrics, and Lyrics for the songs on deluxe TDH) make their way back :-)

(PS - I really liked the green... just saying...)

The tabs are almost impossible to read in the profile area. No contrast in colors.

Really liking the new design. I think the colour scheme is much easier on the eye than the EKMB one, makes things a lot easier to read without eye strain.

I really like the main site design too, a great magazine style look. One thing I've noticed though, is that on the news pages, the blog style posts all end in "aaaa". It's probably just a setting in the content management bit that needs to say "..." or "read more" at the end of the excerpt.

Edit - that's been fixed now. Ignore me.....
