It looks pretty hard on the eyes to me. It's difficult to quickly see "Today" posts on threads. I know it took some hard work and the site was down for a bit, but I just have to say I prefer the old look.

It is a bit different, that's for sure! Unfortunately, upgrading the forum software broke the old template. I had to select one compatible with the new software, and this was the best one I found. It may be possible to offer a few other option, but each template has to be tweaked to include the Yahoo player, the 'unread posts' button, and a couple other minor things. I'll see what I can do to make it a bit more flexible, though.

A tad larger font would have been nice ;)

OK, if you find the new skin a bit hard to read, or harsh, etc, you can switch to an alternate look, the one called 'Core' is very similar to the old look. Here's where you'll find the option:

Go to Profile>Modify Profile>Look And Layout>Current Theme

I can add further themes, if requested, hopefully allowing other themes won't cause any issues!

I realy dig it!

John under your avatar I can see "#admin" 5 times. You probably should remove it.

I think it's a bug in the template, I'll see if I can find it...

Found it, though I'm thinking of changing the image, it seems a little fat to me!

Tiny thing: didn't the MixOff.org header img link to home before the update?
Would be nice if you could make it clickable ^^
Other than that: now that i'm set at the closest i can get to the old design i'm pretty happy. Unread Posts feature is awesome <3

I think that was just an issue with the Core theme, I've hard coded it to be a link, let me know if you have any issues!
