Question New look and new styles to choose from...

On the old site, there were a few different color choices, so I've done the same thing for the new and improved look.

By going to the bottom left of any page, you will see a drop down menu which has many more color choices so pick whatever you prefer. I added the following colors, and these are listed in alphabetical order, not because one brand is better than the other:
  • Ducati Black
  • Harley-Davidson Orange
  • Honda Red
  • Kawasaki Green
  • Suzuki Blue
  • Triumph Yellow
  • Yamaha Blue

Which color do you like best for you??

Site is looking good, I feel a little lost since things are moved around a little but I will get used to it.

One thing I can't find though is the Top ten stats page. I used to go there to find recent threads that have fallen off the New posts page because I usually don't pay attention to which part of the forum the thread is located. You could also put in how many recent threads you wanted to display as well. I think it started at like 40 by default, and you could put in at least 200.

Is the "New Posts" button coming back to the main header bar on top? Missing it.

Just noticed you're from my new neck of the woods... I just moved to Seattle last week.

It's on the Home Page, right column, there is a link called "New Posts" right under your avatar. Let me know if see it ok - it has a link and shows a numerical number of how many new posts since your last login/visit.

Yeah, Kevin filled me on how that worked and that will still continue. For the next few days, you may see a few ads just while I'm testing a few things. Still have a laundry list of things to do, check, and fix.

Also under my user control panel it's not displaying many of the remarks that people have left for me when giving rep, I liked reading those!

Are you still working on the overall look of the website? It seems kind of grey and washed out, can't quite pinpoint it but not as vibrant as before the changes.

Other than the above issues, and the missing dedicated "new posts" link on the toolbar that I really, really, really, really, hope comes back, things are looking good so far.

Of course I'm painfully OCD so these things are going to make my head explode!

Oh most definitely, didn't realize that option was gone. That's one thing I really disliked about TacomaWorld was the lack of a mobile option, makes it really hard to pull up on my blackberry with all the pics and signatures displayed.

That explains something...

This explains why I was not able to log in on Saturday morning (May 9th). Your site was down. I figured it was my computer, so I tried my other one. Nothing. But this explains why I couldn't get in yesterday but no problems today.

Hey, so far I'm diggin the new look. Not quite as cluttered and easier on the eyes I guess.

I'll keep seeing how much better it is. But I'm guessing the majority are going to be excited. Change is good sometimes.

Also if you dont like the look of the site, goto the bottom left of any page and you will see a drop down menu to choose a different color. Just like Kevin had before, I've added many color choices to choose your favorite color to the site.

Sorry about that, the server move took longer than expected, not just with the transition part, but getting everything like the Casino and the Award system to work like before after I upgraded the forum software.

Let me see if I can add a noticeable option up there, similar to what was before.

If you want, you can turn on popup notifications, or email notifications every time you get a PM. Just an FYI.

I'm using the Kawasaki green theme, so I would prefer green M&M's.

Hey, I like that have both "new posts" and "today's posts" now, easier to find threads that haven't been updated for a few hours that way.
