It's a lot better on the right. This way there's nothing to distract you from reading the actual content of the website instead of the user information.

Please don't turn this into an arguement over Left or Right Mini-Profile locations, lest this topic go the way of the dodo.

I'll get used to it, change is always inevitable.

It has come a long way from the first version back in 2001, had a look at the waybackmachine and dug this up..

Feb 08, 2001

Go ahead and have a look in the community section.. the forums are archived too! v1.0.4 all the way lol.. was a fun trip.

I suppose once you get used to it...

Not to throw more fuel here, but the user info really should be on the left. :razz:
Oh my... the smilies are on the right too! 8O


It really does look good, but I'm still partial to the Silver.

At first I thought that someone has taken over the site after the big crash ;), but I think I'll get used to it. The new banners are great! I really love their simplicity and style.

EDIT: As seems their is some bug - images are at fixed width and I look fatter ;P
My page: DOM, Javascript, SQL - tips&scripts (mostly in Polish, sorry ;))

First thing I thought when my homepage loaded was:

Ok, some Child foundation company has taken the domain phpbb.com! LOL
(Mainly because I was used to Bertie feeding the server honey)

But overall guys, awesome effort! Love it!

I love the look, I'll get used to the left/right stuff.
The only thing about the style I really don't like is the itilized text.

Can we please have the option to change it back to subSilver?

EDIT: and there are still quite a few people using Windows 98.
EDIT again: I'm still using MSN Messenger 6.2.


Lol @ Your avatar.

I like the new site, it's just genius in design and efficiency. It loads fast, it looks clean, simple yet powerful... the team have really done a great job with this one.

I really did like the look and feel of the old one, but it was getting on in years and was due for a replacement. This is it.

This one aint bad but I am used to the old one and I will have to say that I will always prefur the old one over this one. I guess as people say that its easier to navagate. I dont see it. To me its the same or a little harder.
