So what do you guys think?

It's alright but I think it's a bit...too formal, know what I mean?

The other layout seemed more "lax", especially in reference to the fonts.

I like it just fine. I think it's stealthier-looking, which is good for work.

I think the green rep bubbles should go away if I am no longer able to boost anyone's rep.

I would still like to see some kind of navigational tools at the bottom of the pages, as I have to scroll back up to the top to go anywhere after reading the latest post and I think that's awkward.

Ah, but Giga, the Rep button is now at the bottom of the page, more noticeable.

Font is a bit small though...

I can't view the Love advice section. Only the tips part. :( No one really posts in those.

Yeah AND the font is too smal.

Oh, I see the rep button now. Yeah, it's tiny.

I hate change sometimes.....:(

I just got used to that other format, and then they change it on us. I would be ok with this one if only I could view all the threads in the Love advice section.

I just go to "New Posts" all the time- I never go through the Forums Main.

I would like to say that I absolutely love the little bubbly thing that goes around in a circle while you're waiting for your post to update. It's so cute!

Interesting that they brought the post count back too...

It works! Just had to scroll down further. Now, Im happy with it! I should just go to new posts. I think I will do that for now on. Thanx GIGA! :)

The bubbly thing is cute, but it seems to take longer... IS it just me or what?

Gigabitch

But, of course!

And I don't think it takes longer, at least not for me.

and I just realized that there's a button at the very bottom of the page that says "TOP". Duh. Has that always been there?

Possibly, but an even easier way is to hit the "Home" key above your arrow keys on your keyboard, it'll take you straight to the top, "End" of course goes down to the bottom.

Works for any website.

Yay for Frasbee! I never knew that. You've just given me my first Christmas present of the year. :D

Im glad they still have the Rep points. Its nice to see the post counts too. I didn't even realize how many I actually had! Not bad considering I took a 4 month break from this place in fall and a break last spring for a few months. Oh well. Im glad to be back. This place is interesting.

Cheese and Rice, Frasbee- does anyone have more posts than you?

Hmm...I dunno.

Vash and Zath both changed usernames, so their number got reset.

I'm sure there's somebody.

I hope, otherwise I'll feel like a post whore.

Perhaps nitpicking, but the higher contrast allowed for easier discernment between quotations & replies.

Otherwise, I'd rather they go back to the small, one-line high old-style smilies. The current ones are obnoxious.

No better place to nitpick than here.

Can't improve the place if nobody gives constructive feedback.

EDIT: Oh yeah Giga, Illusional has over 10,000 posts.

i like the new layout. it is more dynamic; something i like to see on a website. and i like the smilies, they are a part of what makes this forum original.

Your intelligence just blinds me. Wow. What an amazingly sharp remark. Wish I were so bright.

Y'know I lived for the very moment I could tease you with that comment.

I can now die happily.

I'm happy as long as you just die.

have to put a smiley, i just feel dirty saying this without one.

That's okay, I know you meant that with all of your frosted little heart.

But y'know what?

I forgive you.

Because that's just the kind of nice guy I am.

omg, do we have a puking smiley here..have no will to search through these ugly little mfs...

p.s. this is definetely the weirdest forum i've ever seen. if i wrote anything similar to the previous anywhere else, i'd be banned for a week. while king z and you and tdurden (judging by that thread king z sent me to) would be banned forever.

p.p.s do you know what else is little? ;)

It's because I'm too lenient and if I did stamp down on peoples attitude on the forum I'd would have alot of angry villagers on my hands wanting my head.

I guess you haven't met Cybog yet.

Ah, the members make the forum, but that is the beauty of LF.

Betcha didn't expect this did ya?

Yes.

Your understanding of our sarcasm.

But you're catching on!

Which is impressive as most people give up within the first few days.

Hey, we're pretty good at regulating ourselves.

And yes you'd definitely have a virtual torch wielding mob on your hands...

I guess I agree. I mean when it comes down to it I'm not that bothered, but there was something about the old blue background that made posting seem less serious. I don't know. Its all in my head I guess. But certain designs definately make you feel more relaxed I think, and to me blue backgrounds are more relaxing. But what the hey... makes a nice change. :) *shrugs shoulders*
