I like this layout alot better. Its alot cleaner and easier to manage. The old layout was kind of clunky and took awhile to load, especially on mobile.
I know its basically a copy of the MMO Champ layout, but that makes sense now that this is owned by curse and run by Boub. I like that it is more streamlined now. I know most people will complain, cause change always does that, but I say good job guys.
I know the site is still being worked on, but I'll comment on it anyway. The main page I like a lot, looks much nicer, cleaner. Of course it reminds me of MMO-Champ and I always appreciated the new layout on that site.
The forums look good for the most part, and I know there's a ton of glitches and things that are still being worked on, of course. I couldn't figure out for the life of me how to know what topics were unread until Verity pointed out that very thin black line... I think that definitely needs to get changed and be more noticeable! I really liked the skulls before as unread/read topic markers. It made it very obvious and you didn't have to look for unread topics because they really stood out.
My avatar and my profile photo are switched around... So my avatar photo shows up on my profile page and my profile photo shows up beside my posts, and I can't figure out how to switch them around. I can change the profile photo but don't see an option for changing the avatar. Am I missing I just changed my photo in my profile and it changed my avatar as well, so I guess they are one and the same now?
I love red, but the red bars above every poster with their names on them seem to kill my face. I guess I feel like they could be a bit smaller, if anything (probably something I could get used to anyway).
Good work with the change though, it's different for sure but I think it was a good change, and can't wait to see what it looks like after some more polishing. <--- : D
Edit: Oh! And the status box that used to be on the side of the forums... It was fun and I miss it. : (
First, the front page is sweet. Simple and to the point.
The site logo is freakin awesome.
I like that the header bar of every post is the same color, but as someone mentioned it does seem to be a bit bold. It would also be nice if the body of posts would alternate between the current color and something a bit lighter. The color change would make it easier to differentiate posts.
Nested quotes are hard to see where one ends and another begins. Perhaps a similar method to alternate shades
And finally, a way to "roll up" the current online users list like we can with forum sections would be nice
The transparent part of an image isn't carried over when said image is used as an avatar.
One last thing...new badges for the staff. Something that doesn't blend in with the forum colors
i change my photo by clicking on change button on my current photo but nothing happens
and by the way where is "what is on your mind" ?
Just tested it myself, after you upload a new one, click save at the very bottom of the page, go back to the main page of your profile, and mouse over your avatar, the word "change" should appear now, click it,
"What's on your mind?" where is it?

I like the style and the colors choice (my motorbike is Black&Red, helmet too, suit too, gloves and boots too XD )
