At first I didn't like it because it was change and I fear change lol. But I've been using it for a few days and it seems pretty good. I would be happy with either setup.

I'm always biased to things of the past, so I much prefer the old design.

It's nice and clean. A step above the default theme.

The orange search button at the top... bugs me

Also the boxes around the Search and Member Panel, accidentally removed them with adblock, and it looks better...

Ok, well.... the user can still just close out the tab or window and then they end up staying logged in until the idle session kick jumps in. I really don't see how this is a benefit to you if they stay logged in. It's actually just a little bit of an inconvenience more than anything. Seriously, if you don't want people to log out, then just remove ALL options instead of just removing the top. Kinda silly to leave an option to log out... all the way at the bottom, away from everything. The top seems to be like a "command central"... ya know? I don't know... just seems to fit up there. The new skin looks great BTW!

Any reason why you wouldn't want them to logout? Even if a user logs out or isn't logged in, it's still a website hit and the person is still able to hit an ad. I'm having a hard time with this one.... the logic behind it that is.

I am liking the changes a lot, Larry! The pages are not so bright anymore, and the side with our avatars looks almost the same as the old layout now.

If I was helpful, please click the icon on the left hand side of this message that looks like a check mark Thanks!
