I managed to get my old av back. My old personal photo seems to have vanished though. My impression so far is that the aesthetics suck (I know you're just getting started on making it pretty) but I'm liking the functionality.

Are the ads supposed to be so gigantic? In Firefox, it's directly under the new EB logo, and it looks like it may as well BE the logo.

Looks like there are problems with how quotes are being displayed as well. Take a peek in the college football thread.

RG,

Just found that I have a Moderators CP link. I do not know if that is your intention or it is a mistake. I did not have that on the old look mode.

Definitely not digging the new arrangement...
me neither.

As with most software these days the additional graphic content really slows down the basic functionality.

I'm with VT. I understand it's the 21st century and all, but I think the simplicity of the previous layout was far superior. I'm also wondering if the new board software will have any impact on the filters at work and consequently block it for me.

I think everyone wants the message boards to look like facebook :(

I think I can fix the go to last unread post thing though....

It's getting a lot better with every tweak. The functionality is still there, it just looks a lot different. I don't really mind it, and probably won't remember the old one once I get used to this.

I'm looking forward to some new themes... are you thinking of a custom theme or are you going to use some off-the-shelf ones? The upgrade is certainly a good idea and we'll need to be patient as the last bugs are worked out.

As badal pointed out, the current theme is pretty hard on the eyes.

Bug report: The poster information (photo, status, # posts, gender, location, discipline) isn't showing up under the poster name (far left) which wastes a fair amount of space.

Now might be a good time to add an EB favicon to the board... it's currently the default IP.Bard icon.
