Maybe I wasn't too clear on my opinion on it.... I like everything except the left of post garbage. Mostly due to the fact this place was really unique in regards to avatars, and having those uniquely large avatars and having them on the left side makes the pages really odd and quite frankly, ugly looking, something that I don't even like over on the other forums when screen names are longer than others. Sure there's little things like font colors, etc, but those are mute points and easy changes down the road and really aren't that big of a deal.

I do notice the general theme is ALOT different than RPS or TRS. The shading on the borders, the buttons, etc. I just would really like to see our avatar/info stuff above the posts like they used to be. Overall, I like the changes except for the left of post garbage. I would like to see us back at a blue theme like before, but I can deal with the white. I do understand it's a learning curve and this theme was just implemented today...tons of little tweaks everywhere will be done, that's not that big of a deal...people shouldn't go nuts over the little stuff.....people....think of the big picture. Change is good, but IMO, it's BIG change.

There, you got my full opinion on it.

I am the first person to agree that change is good! The logo's and buttons and everything look much better! BUT!! like everybody else i think the avatar/sidebar thing out of whack is weetarded, and I cant handle this white screen, its killing my eyes.
I know you will get things sorted out but just wanted to add my opinion.

It is resizing the avatar size to something other than what it is uploaded at. My new avatar should be 150x300, but is coming up about half the size.
