We have a new main website, and the forum has been adjusted to match. some of you saw a version of this last week, when it was being developed.

If you see any major issues or have any questions, post them here.

At least the contrast is better, but I'm still not a huge fan of the colors.

The light blue is good for decoration, but as text against a white background the readability is poor.

Is this a bug?

When I click on the "Show unread posts since last visit" the link takes me to the front page at http://www.tulsanow.org/

I still have a major issue with the colors.

The page needs to be centered. I honestly like the old version better.

Just like any change, my brain will adjust and I won't think anything of it after a while.

It actually is centered; it's now taking up more horizontal space on the page though.  I like this better (not so much the colors, but the layout.  Maximize real estate).

I am tweaking with it. Any particular parts you don't like? As of this writing, I removed the peach and replaced it with plain white.

I don't think the palette is too horribly awful, but I think that everything should be toned down a bit. It's just too busy. At least darken the bright blue links, they are nearly impossible to read. Please don't take this as being rude, I'm just trying to voice my opinion. Eventually, I will get used to the change, and I may actually like it. Just maybe a less bright version of it. Cheesy

Analogous color scheme fail.  Too saturated.  This hurts me.

I'll get used to most of it.  I like the wider format. The colors in the recent posts section post number line make the thread title unreadable.  

Edit: had to check before commenting on clicking the logo.

I liked being able to click on the logo to get back to the forum home page after making a post.  Now it takes me somewhere else, I think the home page of the whole website.

I agree with whoever said it's too busy regarding colors.

Can you put the logout in a box?  I sometimes forget to logout as it is. An additional logout box at the bottom of the page would be nice.
