I'd like to say SPECTACULAR! There, I just did.

I'm - really amazed at how stunning this is. My hat's off to the parties who made this wonderful new everything!

Wow, I was on just yesterday and now look!!! It might take me a while to get used to it, but it does look very streamlined and promising.

I don't know. I hate change, so I was immediately put off. Then I came back and will have to try it, again.

Not as demure as the previous outlay which I quite liked. Not at all liking the blue and gold sorry to say. A rather classless contrast, imo. I doubt it will grow on me but it's hardly an issue

Still I applaud change so good on the owners, admin or mods for undertaking the task.

There are good and bad with the changes - colour is great.

But with only half the screen being used for the actual forums a lot of wasted space.

Overall - 5/10

I think that it's definitely much easier on the eyes, and quite attractive, but then I'm prejudiced.

Blue and gold have heraldic significance in this country as the colours of the wreath in the Commonwealth Coat of Arms which was granted by royal warrant in 1912, and in 1975, blue and gold were selected as the colours of the ribbon of the Order of Australia.

Congratulations to all who worked to accomplish this welcome update.

I like it though I'll admit I was a little lost for awhile.
Absence is, in my opinion, important to find out whether something in your life is meaningful and important! It may be difficult to endure, but the end result is always revealing.

It will take a bit of getting used to for me, but then I am one who does not take well to change. I'll get used to it though. I like the blue and gold and think the appearance is generally very classy. I think it's a shame we've lost some screen size with the addition of the side panel, and I find the stark white background glary. We also seem to have lost the member location details which I always found useful.
