    I like the new look much better. Articles are closer to the top without all the ads/garbage preceding them.

    Solution button to point out the solution to a certain thread would be absolutely delightful!! You know how some people (heh... me... hehe...:eek:) get lost when looking through forums for an answer, so to emphasize a solution would be awesome.
    Or, maybe, an important button. Like, we can sort posts of importance (ie, updates in a huge ROM thread), and when they're marked "important", they can have a counter at the top of the thread just like the Like button counter, so they can be easily accessed.
    Important and Solution buttons are my 2 requests.
    Love the new layout by the way.

    I 100% agree with that... When I logged on today and seen it I had to turn the brightness down on my monitor... I liked the old look better...

    Why not just have the mods mark the thread SOLVED and close it? They can always reopen it later if a better solution is found or needed. Let the final post in the thread be the one with the solution.

    Although it appears the powers that be are completely ignoring all the feedback they're getting I will add my voice to the very loud chorus saying WAY TOO BRIGHT. I love the blue and green and everything else but the brightness is blinding and very hard on my eyes. Please give us an alternate DARK theme. Thanks.

    It got better, at first it was all white. Hopefully we can get some user options for it soon though. :)

    Everything looks good but maybe darken the background a bit, to white for me. ;)

    I think it looks a lot better, and quite minimalistic?

    Mods, a solid step in the right direction, this site feels cleaner now and more grown up...

    I come from a web design background and my ONLY beef with this site is it's lack of android css styling... being an android forum it would be awesome if when you hit the site with your android or other mobile phone it would be styled for a phone screen:

    with css, the html head tag could recognize it was a phone and a separate css could be applied to 1. lower the bandwidth by loading an alternate header, footer (smaller, less imaged based) 2. reformatting the screens to be viewed better on a small screens, for example you could have the css move the names of posters above their post rather than next to it to make the thread readable without needing to zoom

    I use the phandroid app and it generally suits my purposes, I live on this site night and day for the content, but have been surprised at it's lack of focus on styling for viewing on phone screens, not to be rude at all, I do love the site!

    couple good resources for mobile css, I think you guys could crank out a css update in an hour or two max:

    Well, because sometimes people want to discuss the solution, and that's okay.

    In fact, it's probably the way that a better solution might be found or identified as a need. ;) :)
