As you probably noticed by now - we finally got a forum update :-) All work was done by Yoran - very, very big thank you for that!

Any settings which still need tweaking etc, please just post them into this thread.

It's nice to see some updates on forums.
I have little suggestion. The image that is shown on threads with unread posts should have a bit bigger contrast compared to the threads with no unread posts. :roll:

I had to do a double take to make sure I was on the right site.
I like it so far.

Great. Fast and simple. Thanks! :D

The "save as draft" feature should probably be removed though... it only confuses imo.

Hooray! It seems to be working(and looking) much better. I don't really have any suggestions though.

When your mind is racing, make sure it's not racing in a circle.

When I tried to log in, I got a message "your password could not be converted from the previous version of phpbb" or similar, and a note to request a new pw. I did, waited 24h, but got no email.

Today I could log in fine. YMMV.

I would strongly suggest moving the user information from a post back over to the left. This is standard UI design from a usability perspective. It feels completely unnatural to look to the right to find who posted what.
