Do they want to message me so we can chat about any reservations?
It was me.
Concentrate on new posts.
New clothes will make little difference in my opinion.
Of all the forums i frequent, and it alot. This is by far the easiest to use
I agree with Dave here, this forum is simple to use, obvious when there are new posts and simple to view them, I hate forums where I have to scroll to find the new posts on a thread, makes it really tedious indeed and I quickly lose interest. I read every post on here because I can and it's easy to do, I don't mind a new theme, but don't remove the simplicity of using the site for the sake of a new look.

So , if I can make it pretty and get easy access to the latest topics for you it would be all good?

What I am thinking is where the orange bit is on the right hand side that will contain the latest posts, and if you dont want to use that you can use the hamburger menu for the items.

Andy, I think you might have missed my point, it is the little letter style icon on the thread that allows you to go to the first unread post on each topic.
Not some mess of jumbled rubbish on the front page

If that is the case I'm happy, I use the "kiss" principle in my work and I like that in my forums. I now detest all the sites like daily mail etc as they are screwed by dodgy advertising and scrolling bollocks, I just buy a paper or watch TV news

You might see some aesthetic changes imminently. It wont be a final view , more an evolution as I work out quite how to manipulate things to how we want!
