    Looks great, I love it.

    Only thing that would be even cooler is if, on the main page, after I'd read a story that story became "hidden" on the front page (with stories lower down moving "up") but with the option to "unhide" them (a button at the top?).

    I knew that one day Phandroid would adopt the Holo look from Android! Great job guys!

    There's a small bug I found, though. On the navigation bar menu on top, the link under "Apps" that says developers can publish their apps is broken. It just links "#" instead of the page. I hope that's fixed soon.

    Edit:
    The same goes for the contact option on the same menu.

    I think the buttons could use a different look and maybe a different color on the sides instead of grey maybe? A new look for profile viewing and the Thanks I'm fine with IMO.
    Maybe it could be called thumbs up?

    ^This, but I'd rather we keep both

    It IS an awfully lot of white

    It was there before it was just blue... Liked it MUCH better the old way

    Also, you can barely tell when you have a post selected for a multi-quote. Before redesign it turned from blue to red and was easy to spot. Not it just shades the text... hard for me to tell if i selected it or not

    I'm not sure if this is what you mean or not, but one of my other forum haunts has a cool option for a post in a thread that is the "best answer". The OP of course chooses which post in his thread answered his question best. If you check the thread you will see that post #2 is marked with "Best Answer" by the OP. You'll also notice that post #2's outline is highlighted making it stand out more than the other posts.

    Maybe after a certain amount of time has passed (admins can suss that out) either an Admin, Mod, or Guide can choose the best answer. That way new people reading the thread can still benefit.

    Colours and everything is fine, and folks will always complain, but on Chrome using a HD resolution screen the text size is unreadable really for longer than a minute.

    I have attached a screenshot showing how this forum looks compared to another on my setup...I put both side by side..this is the only forum that has fonts this small that I have viewed today.

    Is there something I can do to fix this on my end? Every other site I visit looks fine, so I would just like to change the text size for this site.

    I like the cleaner look, but for me at least, I think the lighter margins on each side take away from the readability of the thread I'm looking at in the middle.

    Well, I prefer a softer, more rounded edged look. I do love the community, though.

    Very nice, but on the Home page, the items have times but no dates, making it almost impossible to know how old (or new) the item is.

    I find it too bright. Won't save much battery with AMOLED screens.

    Like others have said... can there be an option for a darker background. Even with my laptop screen dimmed, it's still too bright. Larger font size would be appreciated as well. Don't mean to nitpick but the brightness is hard on the eyes. Just reading these two pages and I'm needing a break. Thanks, for considering the input.

    I for one like the new color scheme. The old one screamed "I am on the internet" with just a glance. Now it matches a database color scheme I use at work... Can you see where I am going with this? ;)
