    Like the new site so far :) ( also a signature test ) .. I notice there's no more animated gifs for our member pics? (no big deal just an observation)

    Edit: Sig Works

    Text signatures still a quite too light to suit me. Looking forward, though, to the new dark background theme that's been promised.

    Quite a big change. Not too bad overall and as mentioned previously, I will like a dark theme too.
    Just reduced brightness for me to read.

    Would it be possible to move all reviews about NAS and other storage devices from Networking into a separate Storage review thread?
    I want to be able to browse quickly through networking for modems and routers, not NAS devices which seem to be the main component reviewed in there.

    Oh wow, thought I'd come to the wrong site.
    I miss the new / no new icons on the threads - looks like the icon is the thread starter, which really does not do anything useful!

    It works like your mail inbox, threads with unread posts are in bold text, there's a small dot to the side of the title which will jump you to the first unread post, and if you've replied it will show a small version of your avatar on the thread starters avatar to signal you've already taken part.

    I know it's a lot of change, but it really is for the best once people can get the hang of it.

    On the old site, forums were mark as read automatically when I visited the site, if I remember correctly. Now I have to click to "mark all forums as read" for same effect. Can that be changed?

    I don't think it can be changed, I know what you mean where it'd automatically mark as read once you left, but it doesn't seem to be an available option.

    I like the new dark theme for the front page, I'm looking forward to its use being expanded to the forum.

    I've been dreading your visit, I know how happy you'd been that we'd not changed the forums :p but I'm glad you're happy with the change. I've been following Xen since the projected started, but with all the legal issues between them and vB we couldn't risk a move before now.

    We currently only have a dark theme on the homepage, but the same theme is in the works for the forum.

    new forums seem to have come together beautifully, now all we need is that dark theme so i wont burn my eyes out!

    this thing feels so much better than a VB based board.
