    I don't like that there are 5 people on top. It should cycle with one up there at a time like it used to.

    Not sure if this has been said, but the only thing that bothers me is how newly posted in threads aren't as recognizable as they were. They could use the old big bold letters that used to be there. Other than that, looks spiffy.

    I have mixed opinions about this new layout.

    Firstly: It looks rad as all hell, with the great gradients and colour combinations and everything

    Secondly: It's no longer the happy, friendly TF2M it was - it's now a dark, scary, and kinda unwelcoming place. The dark colours make it feel smaller.

    Thirdly: The website suddenly seems so much more professional, and I hope that having a higher standard of website to post to means a higher standard of maps submitted :p



    Overall, excellent work to all who made it, it's great and while no longer as happy, I think it's a good move

    Making the black a a softer gray would make it a lot easier on the eyes.

    eg I have no problem reading on SPUF, but this black wears me out pretty quickly.

    This looks great! I really like the colors and all. There are quite a few smaller issues (text/background contrast, smileys, viewing signatures...), but I'm sure you're working on it, so I'm happy.

    I can't say I'm a fan. The layout itself is nice, and I love the new banner.

    But I hate the dark. I really do. The orange and white felt like TF2maps. This feels like some other generic gaming forum with dark themes that hurt your eyes. White is happy, dark is down.
    I'll be fine if you just add the old theme back in as a choice or make the whole colour scheme similar to the old happy one. But currently I really dislike it. It feels hostile and uninviting.

    Yea, you only need one person in the banner... you can't actually read it but for the fact you assume it's the websites name.

    I feel the need to quote these since they're the two main issues I have with the new theme.


    Otherwise it's great.

    The main problem I'm having is it doesn't fit my 1024x768 monitor width wise :(

    Apart from that I could get used to it.

    EDIT:

    Sooo much cooler looking than the old forums.

    Was this a custom design, or is it just part of vBulletin? If it's the former, someone gets some major kudos.

    The design is really nice, but I still belive it's too dark.

    When i think dark like this, I think FPSB. When I light bright, I think TF2M.

    Meh, it's ok, but I prefer the older scheme atm. I guess I should give this a chance for a bit. Anyway of giving users the option of either layout?

    I think the veteran badge stands out more than the sponsor badge too. Should it really be the other way round? The orange is a lot brighter and stands out a lot more on the darker background.
