    Apparently your username is only shown, if invisible, to yourself. You can verify this by using runas to open your browser as another user.

    sorry to say it, but I'm no real fan of the new theme.
    It is possible that VB 3 has some new and better features then VB2 but the skin isn't one of them

    BTW: the new post, edit, quote button are too big and don't stroke with the rest of the theme
    But I do like the Archive

    Definitely there are some neat new features here, but like Magos said in the other thread about the new look, the colours need to be tweaked a little - black text on dark blue is not so cool. I would like to see the user stuff like the avatar and so on back to the side of the post.

    Just had to post to see what it's like.

    I don't mind the new theme. Old smilies would be good, the colours are buggered on the new ones. Other than that I will like it once I get used to it I think.

    Just a test to see if smilies can happen in code tags:
    Code:
    void AClass::Display( ){ }
    void AClass:isplay( ){ }

    [edit]
    Sweet.

    maybe im alone on this but cprog has always had a professional, simplistic theme and feel to it, and now it looks like every wannabe forum on the internet. This board version really sucks.

    I'm with you 200% on that. Isn't there a way for the webmaster to upgrade/keep all the new goodies but still retain the old theme/color scheme? I personally don't mind some of the new options, but again I dislike many of them as well.

    The color scheme and new look is bad.
    I don't mind the new code tag boxes, but HATE - HATE - HATE the code tag boxes when you have so much code that it decides to create a scroll bar for you. EWWWWWW. That's just too confined and restricted. When viewing a post from another, all the new interaction buttons(mainly the searching ones and ones that provide information faster) are kind of neat, and it's looking a lot better now that the user's name and information is left justified as it was before. No smilies in code what-so-ever is neat.

    The old layout was better though, IMO, far better.
    The world is waiting. I must leave you now.

    I freaking love the code boxes. No more having to worry about somebody posting a 500 character line or 1000 lines of code.

    Thantos, I agree completely. I hated when I'd have to scroll over three screens just to be able to read a person's post.
