    It'll take some getting used to, it is a little tidier though.

    It's definitely a step up design-wise from the current site, but why limit the width? The current site scales to fill my browser, with the new design I'm left with wasted space down either side of the information, which means more scrolling (yes, I admit, this grumble is sponsored by my own laziness ;) )

    Why is queensway boy thanking everybody? Is he responsible for the new site or summat? :confused:

    Or just a very grateful boy?

    looks smart, less cluttered and not so chunky, more streamlined, well done. :T

    Eh, the :money: in the top left hand corner doesn't seem to have aged any in the four years. :rotfl:

    Well, what a difference! But I was sitting here taking a peak with my mother, who instantly expected the colours on the section tabs at the top to match with the subjects covered in the coloured boxes below - and I have to say I agree with her! Might be something to consider in next update? ;)

    That forum bubble looks completely lost on my 19" LCD so yes, is hard to miss at first! And redo your picture, I suspect it has been slightly resized, hence the fuzziness?

    The width limiter could definitely be lost without causing any other issues, I quite agree. Then I could see more on the screen!

    On the Fun Stuff section on your front page, the text on three of the boxes falls out the bottom of the box on my Mac when running Firefox and Safari - so a bit of adjustment needed there also!

    Also noticed the spelling errors, but think they have been mentioned already, but if you ever need a proof reader I'm available...

    its so pixelated it makes me cry! okay its not THAT pixelated. I just honestly feel thats just a few things that just knock down the professional level a bit =/ Like the obvious background of the purple forum button where its just been badly merged in. and then just the pixelation around martin and the MSE name. the alignments of some of the text looks a little off too. i wonder how the forums will intergrate with this new design to, will it just keep the old side panel/layout.
