    Gotta say, I agree with this. Very fiddly looking. I'm normally the kind of person that embraces change, but this new theme is definitely harder to read than the old one. If you use browser zoom to increase the font to a sensible size you end up with tunsa white space.

    The default setting of the user profile bar above the post is orrible. It wastes heaps of space and results in line lengths that are waaaay too long for easy reading. There's a reason newspapers format for columns of 6-8 words, and books only use about double that. Screens have much lower resolution than print, so having longer line lengths isn't good for readability. Profile on the left results in much more readable posts.

    I also don't like the shade of orange used for thread titles. I find scanning the headlines of a forum quite tough on the eyes. I do wear glasses and have a very mild colour deficiency so maybe it's just me, but I don't think there's enough contrast and clarity between the background and titles. Orange on beige is hard to read IMO.

    Sorry to whoever put a lot of work into this theme, but I really find it more difficult to use than the previous one.

    Ugly as heck imo
    Whoever came up with the phrase "There is no such thing as a stupid question" obviously never had the internet.

    Re: nice forum look

    I have two questions -

    How to hide my beans ?

    Where are online users displayed, sometimes it is good to see who is online ?

    Otherwise I will get used to it -

    Edit your profile and beans are in general settings. Click on ubuntu forums top left. Then you'll see all options.

    Do like. It will take some getting used to but very clean.
    clear && echo paste url and press enter; read paste; (youtube-dl $paste) | zenity --progress --title="" --text "Downloading, please wait" --auto-close --pulsate && ans=$(zenity --file-selection); gnome-terminal -x mplayer "$ans"

    The answer to the first point is in the FFH sticky,

    who's online we believe to be being affected by the search issue
