    in the style chooser (bottom left of the page), pick test style new. it has limited width with darker sides. I also just changed it to have a slightly darker border around individual posts with a slight drop shadow

    I grew accustomed to the new layout over time, but wow the Test Style New is something else! That REALLY looks good!

    i've been on test style new for a while, and i'd still like something darker. depending on the screen used its still much brighter than most forums, and literally painful to look at at night

    one of my monitors at work have a blue tint and the light blue of the forums blend in. I have to agree with the cat man above me.

    I like test new style, but I, too, would like something darker.

    This like I posted earlier would be nice. Also the same look for the TPU homepage would be cool too.

    that is too dark. something like the previous one would be good.
    if its too dark, then looking at other pages at night will hurt the eyes (like looking at facebook)

    I have a billion "Watched Threads". By clicking view all watched threads, I get the option to tick boxes and then deleted those marked threads, but there isn't a Select All button. I'd rather not have to individually click each box to delete them from watched threads. Maybe I should be anal and clean as I go along, but it's just not the Coon way of things.

    Also that Watched Forum button seems pointless, or is there something whismical I can do with it?

    I still haven't figured out how quickly open watched threads and go to first unread posts. The alerts panel is just awkward as hell, and I have no idea how it works.

    I seriously mourn the loss of the previous (rather perfect) forum. But I guess there's not point in repeating the good old "if it works, don't fix it" mantra.

    Agreed...

    At W1z - That new theme doesn't help much. This is just way WAY to bright with very little to distinguish sigs, and quotes, etc. I strongly prefer the dark theme listed in post #632. Thanks for trying. :)

    Even with this fixed, the navigation and verbiage now used, for how I go through forums, is just brutal. I have to relearn forums and terminology just to maneuver through the site. :(

    You only have to click the title and it takes you to the first unread post, weather it be in the
    Sat page or three pages back. This actually works much better than the old style, since clicking the arrow would take you to the last post, not the last unread.

    So when I click on an alert saying someone replied to my post somewhere, it will take me to first unread post, and not to that particular reply?

    I also found "watched threads" button right on top of the forum, which is good, BUT also says something about the new design. I managed to completely overlook it. The whole new design is somewhat overwhelming (or maybe confusing) in some situations.

    Maybe consider exploring a "new" site a bit first.

    Um, I don't get the new test layout. All I see is that it narrows the site down. Looks like the same colors to me.



    Something like the above. Make it a mix; dark setup for those that like that and then the lighter set up for those that want that.

    The box around the post has a subtle drop down shadow.

    I dont know if this is a bug but Dolphin browser really doesnt like the new layout - Ive had to resort to using Chrome. Pages load up fine but then it comes to replying or editing posts it either throws me to the top of the page or the 'cursor' jumps about resulting huge time wasted when trying to delete/edit quotes or replies.

    Site works fine for browsers on PC though. It could be just my phone which is antsy with the layout, cuz it seems to work ok when im using my tablet

    I got a Gnex with 4.3 and it does the same stuff yours is and then sometimes it crashes. I turned off the RTE and it works better but i hate going without it on the desktop version though. I wish there was a mobile and a desktop seperate control panel or something.

    no sure if it's been mentioned but i'd really appreciate getting the quote button back by the "thanks" and "reply" buttons.

    the reply button IS the quote button.
