    And thus the reason why I didnt cater to most immediate request when it came to the forum after updating to vb3. Now, let the requests flow.

    Have to be honest. I was really shocked when you made the inital change. There were a lot of bugs in it which you got worked out.

    I think it's OK. Not any worse than the last. Maybe better. It will take a little time to get used to it. I do like the fact that you have taken the double navation out of the top.

    Will reserve any other comments untill I have used the new theme a little more.

    I have two requests:
    1. A 'New Posts' button, and...
    2. A 'Today's Posts' button.
    I would like to be have both buttons available when I'm logged in.

    Maybe familiarity breeds contempt but I like this theme much more. After kicking the tires a bit, we may find a need to note some tweaks, but so far... I've always liked metallic finishes anyway.

    A quick follow up. I like your new header. I love blue. It might be a shade lighter but I think the overall design is great.

    Is there anyway an indivdual user can remove the quick reply option? I don't like it. I never use it and navagate the forum using the dorp down box below the quick reply box.

    I'm not suggesting you remove the quick reply option becuase I'm sure a lot of people use it. I would like to eleminate the extra scrolling if possible to get to the drop down navagation.

    I do have one complaint or suggestion, but it has been voiced so many times I'm not going to say anything more. I have given up hope on that.

    Just another thought after using the board for a few minuets. Go to the last post is not very clear at least to me.

    Quite the shocker of a change, however I like it, the header is more compact then the last, and I like the colours, it all works.
    Perhaps a little over simplified however I will get used to that.
    All in all nice, The only thing I think I can complain of on just one look (well recommend) is that the buttons under the users avatar be changed slightly to match more, as it is, its looking a little outta place, but, thats kewl.
    All opinions are the result of being uninformed, unintelligent and uninterested!

    Wow this takes some getting used to. Like Vin I'd really like to see the "New Posts" button return. That's how I always check new messages. Any other way takes too long.

    Just another thought. Why not move the JaguarPC Staff only to the bottom of the forum page? That would help a little in regard to scrolling.

    The 'time', at the bottom of the page, is white - should be black, I believe...

    If I may, it's down right sexy! However, go to last post in the view topic area is hard to find; I ended up at Vin's profile.
