    Bloody hell Ron, I logged in now and wondered what the heck had gone on here.

    The new look is rather posh I would say. I do like it a lot -but in some ways feel the loss for the old look...

    I think you got here while I was in the middle of applying the changes. I think I have it all sorted out now.

    I did like the old look, except it really felt constrained to me by the narrow width. With this new skin being wider, I think it accommodates the information better, especially on the home page.

    What does everyone else think?

    Ron,


    The book reviews are rather hard to read. Grey on Grey is not the best, maybe black text?

    Thanks, I had missed that. Fixed now.

    Ron, If the browse by author was on the site before I didn't see it but I do now and it's great! I think the site will be more enticing for newbies. Thanks for the site facelift - professional.

    I like it! I happened to drop by to check the forums and was shocked (pleasantly so!) by the new look. I love the nav bar at the top, but the font could use a little work - it looks odd.

    I've made the light blue color on the Gateways page a darker blue, since it was too hard to read against the black.

    On the wiki, the Minor Change and Save as Draft notes are black - you can't see them against the black background. And, is there a way to make the links bigger? The font size I use for the text should affect ALL the text, but it's not, for some reason.

    I fixed the color on the Minor Change and Save as Draft notes, and made a few other color tweaks in the wiki. Which links are you talking about? Can you give me an example?

    All the links on the wiki are the same - they're about 3/4 the size of the normal text font. If I remove the font tag, all the text reverts to that size - for some reason, it appears that the it doesn't affect links.

    Edit: I discovered something cool - you can use HTML in forum posts! And, with the font adjuster at the top (very cool, BTW), you can make the text larger - on medium, links and text are more or less the same size.
