    I just noticed the new L&F for the forum threads (the ugly checkbox indicating "logged in" is now an attractive disk, "Reply" is now "Quote". etc.).

    Looks much nicer, IMHO.

    i agree that the new look is nice, i'm just not all that keen on the new multicolored smilies.

    :) :eek: :confused:

    I also think that the addition of color is very nice. I happen to like the aqua look. The change in smilies are very nice also. I really would like to see a emoticon that cries.

    I was hoping there'd be a new emoticon that meant "Apple is falling behind; why don't they release a new G5 NOW!!".

    That would save a lot of people a lot of typing...

    Ha! Good one.

    I was a little apprehensive at first about the new changes. But I've gotten used to them, and now actually kind-of like them. Just like with Apple!

    ( when they make changes that is :p )

    Nice

    I think the new L/F is great. Easy to read, look at, navigate. Very bright, visually appealing.. :)

    One little feature I'd like: an indicator of how many posts a thread has had in the past 24 hours. Not so important here in Current Events, where most things die after a day or so, but nice in other main areas, I'd think.

    I don't like the muticolored smilies...

    They are so much different... and different colors seem pretty weird.

    Meh... what can I do.

    I wouldn't mind some animated smilies.

    Also, I have no idea what the different colors on "envelopes" mean...

    Here's an screenshot from the bottom of most forum pages showing what they are. I think hot threads are defined as having 150 views or more.
