    Weird, thought I posted this yesterday, but here it is again, paraphrased:

    I like the new contributor/staff/etc buttons. Yeah, bright and colourful, but I like that for buttons.

    Overall I like the new theme, but I just would prefer more contrast in text in the main reading areas. Whether that's a larger font with the current colour scheme, or a lighter background colour. It's not as easy to skim as the old style.

    And there are a few quirks to address, like the main banner being too cluttered to read the TFMaps logo. These are all minor things, really, not "OMG everything is crap."

    A lighter background would make it more difficult to read [​IMG]

    I very much appreciate the lighter gray you've installed instead of the black.

    It's looking very good right now, but I have just one more problem:

    ^ At a glance it is very difficult/frustrating to tell apart the "hot" threads and "new" threads.

    Yes, very much so. Map search works though, but site search doesn't.

    A - Removed text entirely. Darken the line beneath.
    B - Remove or shorten text, also darken.
    C - Decrease space between lines, decrease font size.

    Just my 2 cents.

    edit: just noticed that full-sized images now open on the page. Nice.

    Ugh... I'm still not getting the TF2M feel when I come here... I feel like this is a totally new website.

    It would make a lot more sense for hot and new to be the red one while hot and old can be the orange one that just appeared.
