Have my eyes gone funny....

..... or has Ribnet gone a bit funky in the last few hours? Subtle tone changes to the outlines and a strange quicklink box on the forum home page. Very smart.

The blue looks quite cool but Im not so sure about the box on the right taking up a massive column of space!

Don't like that box. Too "bitty", and takes space from the important stuff...

...and black text on a graded background: just no. (Try reading it on a laptop screen at a suboptimal angle for a start).

Just my 0.02 worth.

Have to agree the box on the right is a really stupid idea.

The new look is nice, but appears to have slowed the site right down to a crawl for me on my slow connection out here in the sticks.

On my other forum we describe it as "reading off a bog roll"!

There is an option in the User CP to turn it off ... but it doesn't work!!

Box?

I got a huge blank space, but no boxes or subliminal text......

Will test it with the dial-up tonight!
