    The colors are making my eyes a bit sore. Maybe you can give users the ability to toggle the color darkness?

    Everything else is fine for me though. Nice work!

    After reading threads for a while, I now stand in the "it's too bright" camp. I'm feeling it in my eyes.

    Please consider darkening the background.

    Love it design-wise, but the brighter background makes my eyes a bit sore. I'm sure it'll be awesome once they adjust to it.

    It's a definite improvement.
    Good colors, less cluttered.
    Well done.

    I just wish WTC was more accessible... particularly with the second game announced. There will be a lot of discussion brewing.

    I have to agree with the people complaining about the overly vibrant/bright colors. It literally hurts my eyes to look at this on any monitor that isn't over 8 years old.

    i am not sure what the program is here but another forum i am on uses v bulletin and it has an option to change the colors (not set your own but a couple of presets) that might help with the brightness. and its located at the very bottom of the page and you can also choose a mobile version out of those

    but i like the overall look nicely one guys

    I'm liking the layout and the logos, but I have to say I preferred the blue pages to these new grey ones.

    Eh.. honestly feels like a step backwards.. but if the staff is happy that's whats important I guess..

    I hope you guys can cut some of the news on the front page down, otherwise it's going to be hell at work when it raises the bandwidth my office watches as I stop back on the boards...

    Luckily, Lander doesn't have that problem...

    This isn't a site for staff only it's for fans... what fans want should matter, that's how businesses succeed, that's how anything should be run.

    And it is. So far, the response has been over 85% positive. It's hard to argue with that, right?

    I don't like the new colors. The old style was more appealing. This just seems....blah.

    Google doesn't have a high contrast between dark blues and an eye-burning light grey. Honestly, darkening the light grey would make it much better. But if the majority love it, then to each their own!

    So we've hit this cycle of the fandom again, eh? Something new, people complain and so on. If it really screws with your eyes that badly, adjust your contrast and/or brightness on your monitor. Or stare at the sun for a while.

    It could always be worse.

    Who said I was arguing with it? :rolleyes2 

    I agree, I feel that the old theme had more personality to it. This one just seems to plain with a little shine that tries to make up for it, but I can't place my finger directly on it. I liked the old logo better too.

    My only main problem is the hidden menu under the tabs at the top. It's a nightmare for my trackpad and it take me twice as long to get somewhere. I think if it opened downward in a list it would be better, instead of horizontally.
