I personally find the big orange icons a bit of a pain, they distract from the text. In my opinion they would look better smaller and faded, faded alot.

Note that we had to redo the conversion on Sunday due to a problem with special characters that we could not resolve. All posts on Saturday night/Sunday up to 4pm were lost.

However, the forums are now healthy again.

I like the new style...everything takes a bit of time to get used to, especially after years of the same forums !!

Cheers, once again for all the hard work TC :). <3.

I'm pleased with the upgrade and the new look is starting to look like home again. The upgrade was extremely hard work to do, especially with the integration we have with the forums and there's a bit more work to do to get the in game PMs working again. That will hopefully follow later this week.

I'd also like to thank Crakinshot for all the work he's done in configuring the new board over the last few weeks, and for his push in getting the board upgraded to the latest software version. Without his help this would not have been possible. Thanks Crakin :)

I have to wsay crakin (and TC) have been doing alot of work, the theme now looks great, and a massive improvement in my opinion to when the test forum was first up.

The colours dont clash, and now, im kinda used to it :D

ALso, loving the features, so thanks you two for all the time you put into this :)

Well done Crakin and TC, shows you can bring UKCS into bigger stuff with the new Updates, well done and very good work. I have to say you put as much effort into it and it was done to perfection, and really that's all you can do is put as much effort into it as you can in the update and you two have succeeded, so excellent work.

Raze.

Is there any plan to upgrade the front page to have a constant colour scheme throughout the website? Or will this be staying the same?

Change is good, the forums hadn't changed hardly at all since i first joined. I like the new forums, will take time to get used to, but i think they look a bit more professional and fresh which should hopefully attract more people into the community :)
