The Reply box still has the old blue color from before the update. Maybe that could be extended to the rest of the site if the white is too harsh. The Reply box looks out of place at the moment and that would help integrate it.

I do miss the banner, it'd be nice to have some graphics.

The burgundy doesn't seem any darker than the blue, it just had a more spidery font so the words were getting lost. But lots of royal sites have reds and burgundies so the blue is more unique.

The site update is not clicking with me. It seems very stark and impersonal, JMHO.

I actually like the new updates. I think the blue and gold look really nice, but I do miss the royals at the top of the banner.

As others have said, maybe another color for the background (light blue) will help those having trouble with the white one.

I preferred the old layout to be honest. Just a visual preference. Since I use my iPod half the time, it doesn't really matter.

Soviel ich weiss sind ein paar Moderatoren deutschsprachig, denn in dem Fall fällt es mir leichter in Deutsch zu schreiben:
Ich bin jetzt seit acht Jahren hier Mitglied. Ehrlich gesagt war ich an das alte Layout gewöhnt und es fällt mir sehr schwer, das Neue zu akzeptieren. Warum ist auf den Replyseiten so viel Werbung? O.k., das hat mich schon die ganze Zeit gestört. Überall so Werbung, (s.o.: shirtinator, Erwin Müller, Daily Deal... z.B.), das irritiert mich immer.
Aber natürlich werde ich weiter ein treues (süchtiges!) Mitglied bleiben.
Euch allen einmal danke für die tolle Arbeit


Eure Stefanie

It's not growing on me! I think it looks pretentious to the point of being tacky, and it's not easy on the eyes.

While I'm not thrilled with the new look partly because its hard on the eyes you could improve the color coding for links. I was making one and couldn't see the difference in the sentence between the black and the dark blue. It needs to stand out more JMO.

well, I'm undecided right now on the change. on the home page listed under "royal News" everything is scrunched to the right side of my screen and listed 1 word per line row going straight down the page. Any pictures are very tiny. Don't know if this is a computer glich or a site glich. But I hate it.
And as I am computer illerate, i have no idea on how to fix it. Grrr....

My husband leaned over yesterday as I entered the forum and said, "My, what a great looking forum!" I don't think he's ever said that about a forum before!

Kudos.

One problem what's with the Google ads under my posts is it something I'm doing wrong and can you make the smilies avaiable in a drop down box or link?

Thanks!

The stark white background is accentuated because all the sub-forums on listed on individual lines, plus (it appears) in smaller text. The sharp contrasting colors also makes the white appear brighter. Thank you for being able to eliminate the right hand sidebar.

I don´t think a change was needed. I am not thrilled either. I find it hard to get to the new posts.

When I hover over the things reigning house or non-reigning and it comes up with the royal houses, they disappear behind the annoying adverts that are on show and when I go to click on them, I end up clicking the advert instead.
I originally liked the new layout, i'm beginning to dislike it.
