heheh... boy Lance, you know we will nitpick this for awhile too I hope our gripes are welcome and dont sound too whiny.
Too much lavender or whatever that background color is. My eyes start watering after a few minutes. Can you darken it a bit?
On the old system, I had it set with a very dark theme with a black background. There doesn't seem to be any way to do this now, unless I'm missing something?
Also... No more country flags? I thought that was a nice addition.
Flag mod installed - add it in your profile.

Is there a list somewhere of available smilies? For example, I wanted to put the smilie with the devil horns next to my "buahahahaha" above, but I couldn't figure out how to do it. On Lemon64, it's "::twisted::", but that didn't work here.-Andrew

My thoughts on the new forum software:1. The forum now displays real names rather than logins and it is proving more difficult to adjust to than I expected.
2. Avatars are down below all the other user information and that whole sidebar is way too busy.
3. Still no access to our old PMs.
4. The "Preview" function is borked. It shows a single line of the post and there's no scrollbar on the box so I can't see the rest of my post without clicking in the preview box and manually scrolling. Ugh.
Go into your profile & change your display name to fix this one.
I can export these, as PM's weren't part of the 'core' PunBB installation they didn't come across on the import. This is a manual job, but can do & PM the flat text file across to you.
This one's odd, I'm not experiencing it on FF 2, anyone else having this problem ?
Actually, you can retrieve 'em yourselves - the old forum is still here.I've simply locked all the boards so no posting can be done.cheers,Lance
After using this for a few days I've decided that it isn't to my liking. The colors are difficult for me (I have blue-green color blindness)
after a post I find myself up one level from where I was, which means I have to renavigate to the subforum into which I had posted
There are other themes that can be used (go to profile > look & layout preferences > current theme > change) - they can be previewed before changing. There will be others added.

The themes appear to be more than just window dressing. I'm not loving the new forum software at this point either but I think it's premature to judge because it always takes time to adjust to change. In Lance's defence, he's still getting things configured and the change was necessary. Besides, most of my objections are superficial. The people and the discussions are the same and that's what I'm here for.
Ok, I'll toss mine into the ring... because I have a softspot in my heart for the arts ... will we be seeing the C=128 banners returning soon? The banner rotation script was pretty cool as well. At your convenience of course - im sure thats way down on a to-do list somewhere.
Yep, I need to add the 'extras' in to the other themes - there's a tool to do this so that'll be done shortly.
I tried updating my profile as suggested earlier in this thread. Now at the top of the page it states "If you aren't comfortable with sharing some information, simply skip it - nothing here is required. " I changed only one thing, the "Custom Title" just to see what it would and after I click submit (err, Change Profile) I get the error "You must select the country that you visit us from." So some things are required!
