    I really like it. Super clean, and seems to load so much faster. :tup:

    Nice clean look and easy to navigate.
    I like it, nice job:tup:

    IMO themes relly don't matter that much as I will probably never change it. I come here for info and as long as it's easy to find it serves it's purpose.

    I agree. The new page kinda scares me for some reason. The layout of the center is almost like a newspaper spread... (at least in my mind)

    Btw, with "fine" I meant the forum. The news page wasn't up when I said that :)

    Oh and the top of the page looks like a condensed version of the thing at the top of PU's page... and we just can't have that can we? ;)

    Do you guys think there will be an option in the near or distant future for people to switch back to the old theme? Like, an option to do so in the skin pull-down menu. Or something.

    A couple of things I would like to see changed:

    1) In the lower right under "Mod Picks", the mod names shouldn't be cut off like that. I know the names shouldn't exceed the page size, but it just looks tacky as it is now.

    2) I don't like the blue font. It doesn't contrast well with the lighter background. Consider using a blue that's a shade or two darker. Not Midnight Blue dark, but darker than current.

    Other than that, I very much like it. It's a much cleaner interface over the old one.

    Nice :):tup: It has a few spots that could be improved, but it's good enough how it is. I do miss the random BU logo background pictures from a variety of U-Engine games though. :(

    I really hate the new look. Seriously, why isn't there an option to bring back the old layout and appearance?

    You are correct. However, Opera 8 and above displays the page correctly, and 7.54u2 and below look like the screenshot you provided.

    I suggest upgrading to Opera 8.02 Wolferey.

    Uch, I hate the 8 version (have it at work), the Xs are bad (as you see, I got alot of tabs open, its a big mess with it when I suddenly close a tab >,<) so I never bothered to upgrade opera on my home PC :rolleyes:

    Nicely done! It renders like a champ in firefox. I've had problems with css in opera before, so I'm not surprised it's rendering weird.

    Where's the No Skin option? I want it to look like bu forums - small gradient on top and that's it - No noise behind text.

    Yeah, I'm sure I'll get used to it. As long as we have a BU :tup:; that's the main thing.

    I hope someone can get around to fixing the forum email notification system soon....

    Looks good, although I don't think the "default blue" coloured links fit in at all.
