I just want some general feedback on what you guys think of the new forum. I know there are still a couple of technical glitches which I'm working on - but what I mainly want feedback on is the useability, colour co-ordination (things easy to find?) and so on. Thanks.

Could you elaborate on that? Do you mean that the table colour is slightly lighter than the main middle table? (That was actually intentional, lol).

I think the lay out is simple and clear. Colours are fine with me.

At my age, I remember when everything was either avocado or mustard colored.

The first company I worked for did some research, and found that blue is the most "calm" color. I have no idea how anyone does research to get that result. Anyway, I'd say leave the color like it is, and evaluate it again in a few months.

Well, I've had many blue sites in the past and I really wanted to get away from blue this year. I think it's just some design-student phase I'm going through. I just did a big design project to do with war which may have influenced my colour choice decision... I don't know. I've been using a lot of green too.

I'll have to get around finding myself a new avatar soon too. The ones included in this iB3 version are a bit odd... ???

Good idea. It would be good if members can make suggestions on which pictures they want. There are lots of pretty cool photos.
