    Thumbs down

    I do not like this look. While reading through the few threads I can bare to look at, it's hard for me to think straight.

    Bummer.

    A couple of days ago another forum I used to like "upgraded" to this & I thought "Well at least CBoard still looks decent."

    Too bad.

    Reminds me of chrome rims. I don't think much of them either.

    Also it seems that the option to use the "report bad post" on your own post is gone.

    I have used that to request threads be deleted that I have posted and quickly realized my own stupidity

    I can't say I'm a huge fan of the new look.
    • The new version should be indexed by Google and other search engines. This is a big gain.
    • Valid file extensions: bmp doc gif jpe jpeg jpg pdf png psd txt zip
      I don't think an executable and virus laden format should be on the approved list. I'd like to be able to download attachments without worrying about malicious code. I don't know if this is new. ".c", ".cpp" and ".cs" should be added.
    • The look of the "Topic Review" when replying is utterly awful. - Update - The green color scheme looked far better here.
    • The "unread thread/forum" feature works far better.

    Why do you say that?

    There is no plan to implement a while new theme. We have used this basic theme for a long time, and it matches the rest of the site. However, we will be updating this theme and making it "not ugly." Many of the truely "ugly" parts come from the installation script improperly converting the v2.0 theme to v3.0. It's going to take us a while to update it - but it will be updated.

    i am getting used to the new theme already...although it was a huge shock when i first saw it...although yes there are some things that are kind of ugly, but not too bad.

    i quite like this:

    I like this theme for the most part. I especially like the space in the message box -- a BADLY needed enhancement.

    The thins I don't care for:
    Too much red -- the links are hard to read. darker color for the links
    The grey in the post input fields is just a little dark.

    Overall, it's somewhat better than the previous theme.
