    I like it

    It does have some scaling issues though, i normally have it open in a smaller window and a few things overlap, no biggie though

    I know I'll get used to it, but I have to say that I'm not a fan of the new look.

    I'm not going to compare to anything else... I just find that it's too bright.

    I'm going with its nice clean and refreshing - make sure you have IE compablity mode turned OFF though as is mucks up a whole load of things.

    The only fault i would say is the EDU in the logo is a little dark.

    I'm really liking the colour scheme. Looking forward to seeing what other additions are coming.

    Only thing I don't like is that it changes colour between the homepage and the forums but apart from that looks nice!

    Initially I found it a bit hard to read here too, the text changed slightly it seems a bit brighter than the previous versions I found for me, doesnt look bad overall though

    Color change isn't necessarily bad.

    It's the fact they're 2 different temperatures...

    I'm a big fan of blue and orange sites, so its a big thumbs up from me. (A web based admin tool I'm writing at the moment at home is orange based...)

    I can't say I'm a massive fan. I echo Aerospacemango - it's too bright. It's really hard to tell the difference between read and unread threads. I like the colours and I like how different parts of the site are in a different set of colours but find the tab font hard to focus on - the letters are too 'slim' (it's probably kerning or some such technical term but I don't know much about fonts) and the forum page itself being white is an assault on the eyes. I preferred the more muted shades as they were easier on the eye. Reading posts makes me squint a bit

    Overall, yes to the 'main' colour scheme but can you do something about the white pages - they be eye hurty
