    Good work! ...and it seems faster, now!

    Still not sure I like any of the new "looks" (backgrounds), but I guess I'll have to get used to them. I actually liked the old version's default background, but for now, am using the Woodie 'dial-uo' version (even though I have a Broadband connection.

    Good work, Darren. First earthquake, eh? Would've like to have seen your face just as you realized what it was. That first one is always a shocker!

    Not sure I like it, I'm kinda old fashion and don't like a lot of changes.... this one looks a lot like a couple I have frequented out of Aussie land.... it'll grow on me ... I like the people here and it is number one on my list of forums.

    I did notice the quick navigation isn't as quick to navigate....

    I think it will be ok. Could maybe tone the colors back a little, but the words are on a nice white background so it is still easy to read. I'm fine with it. Jim.

    great work Darren. I like the woodie look, as it tells me this is a wood working forum and i should be out in the shop instead of on this puter.

    Okay, after using it for a while, there's one change I'd like to see: Could we bump up the default font in posts a couple points?

    Right now, it looks to be about a ten point font, and these old eyes are a bit strained by it. Bumping it up to around twelve points would sure help.

    I'll see what I can do. I still have the test site up, so will do some testing there to make sure I don't affect anything, but will be a few days. I've got a work project to finish and Honey do's on my plate. Until then, another option is to use the browser's view functions to increase the fonts, usually labeled Text Size or Zoom.

    Great work, admins! Congrats! Most people are resistant to change...so it will take some getting used to, but GOOD JOB.

    I changed to vB4 default style from Woody3 (dial up). Like it very much!
