    I like it but as stated already I need a darker theme.

    Ok,I like it. Kinna strange seeing each member's info on a gray bar at the top of each post however. Ok,I fixed that..Looks way better now!
    I like the colors and I use Compiz,so I can zoom in. I'm pleased you kept the beans and I'd read the beans were going far,far away.

    Wow, that sure is... different I agree with the 'have to get used to it' folks. Some things are nicer other things are a bit confusing like the big user bar at the top of each post.

    I like the new look, and I can't really see what all the problems are. The colour does not look very different from the last version, and whilst I agree that on a widescreen with a maximised firefox window, the arrangement of profiles above posts was not user-friendly, it took a few clicks to change it back to profiles on the left, leaving a narrower area for text and making reading posts a lot easier.

    PS:
    The new version of the forum has also solved the huge the Ubuntuforum scrolling problem I had in any Firefox version above 17. Only this forum had the problem, and it made the whole thing totally unusable, meaning I had to either use chromium, which I don't like as much as FF, (no Tab Mix Plus addon; essential to me) or pin my FF version to 17, which was my choice. I have just this minute unpinned FF 17, updated to FF 19, and now all is great again, with fully operational scrolling. Brilliant!

    Profiles in posts. Previously, this defaulted to the left, but it now defaults to on top. Members with 25 beans or more can change this by going to Settings (at top of page) -> My Settings -> Edit Profile -> Location of Member Profile and changing the value in that field. Please be aware that we may be setting the default to on left in due course and this will over-ride any individual settings, but we have no plan to remove the choice.

    Please do not PM me about your forum account unless you have been asked to. The correct place to contact an admin about your account is here.

    :/ generally the top location would permit a more responsive design but sadly it would seem they've opted not to adopt that. I think the forums on the main index should at least have title attributes with descriptions. Other than that, nice and clean.

    Indeed moving profiles on the left made things a little easier. I have a widescreen monitor and use multi-focals (yes I am old) and the wide, wide text arrangement was not good .
    You think that's air you're breathing now?

    A prime example of why one doesn't hire software geeks to design visual UI elements; their gift is software, not UI - this is a evidence of that.

    Re: nice forum look

    So far I the only thing I would consider questionable is the choice of the colors layout (it will take same time to get use to the contrast), because apart from that, and with all the improvements we get in this new version of the forum, like having more tools to elaborate our posts (the possibility of adding/editing tables being one, for example), makes this upgrade as something that a regard as very positive.
    Please mark your thread as solved if you get a satisfactory response.
