    I was going to ask about the color, but other people already complained first...

    Anyway, seeing the site gave me a headache :/ It is TOO BRIGHT!

    I feel like this: http://www.vgcats.com/comics/?strip_id=222

    I prefer to have poster nickname and info to the left of the post, not on top, it's more readable like that. Otherwise it looks really messy on big screens.

    I agree, so I've put it back that way :) I'm also playing with the colors to tone them down a little... do I just hate change? who knows...

    I agree, there is a lot of useless space between posts.

    I always though badges were complete BS to be honest.

    Yay! The user info returned to the left :D It is way better. Also the site now does not cause headache.

    But I do miss the badges! I mean, they are really cool!

    I tried having the views counter update in real time, but it brought the whole server down. So that's going to stay how it is for now...

    tl;dr! But: yeech, it's hideous. Or specifically the icons on threads are.

    Well at least it has some options now. I wonder if I can find something on styles.com? to fix it for firefox at least :) They allow you to reskin anything using CSS for personal pref :)

    Man, I'm just glad to be clear of most of the spam. It really is a huge improvement for mods.
