hi to all,
what do you think of the new "look and feel" of this forum?

Thanks for posting a Poll. I'm curious as to what people think.

We upgraded to phpBB v3.0 for more updates especially dealing with security (due to spammers), so this left us with a new look. There doesn't seem to be any styles/templates yet for the new phpBB, so I am awaiting ones to come to change the look.

Please let us know what you think about the functionality.

EDIT: I have found styles. I am going to put one or two up.

You can choose from the one it's on right now, or there's a "default" one from phpBB. Do you like this one more?

I would like to see a theme with more contrast. I find the current colour scheme a little hard to see. Other than that, nice job :)

Regards,
Xander

yes, I agree to this.
The edit-Window (post a reply) is nice cause it's bigger, and thus you can better see what you are writing.

But the navigation in the forum's tree should be a little improved... :
the navigation buttons/bar at the top and the bottom
Code:
Board index » ROBOTC.net » ROBOTC.net

as well as
Code:
Mark topics read

are much too small and should be taller.

You probably already noticed, but I increased the size of that text. Let me know if you think of anything else :)

fine, now it's really hugh- probably even big enough for myopics :shock:

just in red (or green) this maybe would increase contrast, and if you managed to increase the top right bar, too
