    @Bob @all
    If you think the menus could be better and/or more logically organised then let me know.

    Everything is clear in the new design.We just need time to get used to it.I had found my posts and other features before I knew that you are testing a new design.

    Re: Testing a new forum theme

    The old forum seems more comfortable somehow (the colour is warmer) but it's just probably a matter of getting used to another house.

    Re: Testing a new forum theme

    Ah! May I speak on behalf of the over-40 set and say thanks for the larger text size?

    Re: Testing a new forum theme

    @ Red 5

    Ill insist with the colour. The main page looks monotonous. Id add some colour to identify the Sub-forums easily. Is that possible?

    Re: Testing a new forum theme

    mara_ce: insistir (I assume that's the Spanish; the French is insister) is a faux ami. What you mean is 'I still don't like it' or something like that. 'Is that possible?' is fine - and sticklers for correctness should look away now, because they would prefer it to what I'm about to suggest... But in the context of User-Interface design it's not uncommon to use the much less formal 'Is that doable?'

    Red5: What I don't like is that VB displays the old colour scheme for a split second before settling on the new look 'n' feel; but I presume this problem will go away once you remove all the conditional tags in your code! (Or perhaps if I had a decent PC the flicker would be less noticeable. )

    Oops! Thanks, BobK. I think I have used "insist" wrongly. Sorry for that, its not my intention to demand anything. I used that because I had mentioned the colour before. I should have checked the definition of "insist" before writing it.

    What verb do you use when you are being repetitive and dont want to sound agressive?

    "Is that possible?" I meant if it is possible to add the colour, not that they should do it because I like it. Im really sorry if that was interpreted in that way.
