    I've added a new style to the forum, which a couple of you have already seen :D

    I've not made it the default until I've had some comments on it to see if it is any good ;)

    In the bottom left of the site (right at the very bottom of the page), there is a style chooser. From this there is Orange (default) and the new blue one. Could people try out the blue option and let me know what you think please :D

    I've added a poll so that you can choose which one will be the default option for the site.

    The blue color is by far easier on the eyes AND it matches the subject matter better (blue = water/ocean) :) I like it ALOT better

    I'm glad you guys like it!

    I'm going to polish it up and then add the full re-design in the coming weeks - but I'll leave the blue test up so you can still use it if you wish :) The full version will have new icons and crisper graphics, but more or less the same as the blue version :D

    Orange. It's easier on my eyes. I like the light blue, and middle blue, but the bright dark blue Na, it is too much.

    I've had to disable the post thankyou hack for the moment, as it is causing some real problems when I updated to the latest version - this will be back soon :D I'm going to finish the new design, and then re-add it :)

    I actually like the new layout a lot better too. New layout and new colors get a thumbs up from me! Good job, Ian.

    Thumbs up for the new design and color...the only thing I would change layout-wise is remove the "Search" from the right hand margin since there is a search directly above it in the horizontal menu
