    great site!!
    One little comment.. would it be possible for the ebay logo to appear ONLY when they have auctions for sale. I believe after a while, more people would have the logo up than ones actually selling at the time.

    I was quite shocked when I logged in this morning but I am already growing used to the new design. Nice work! :thumbs2:

    I know it's a really minor nit pick, but the reply, quick reply and edit buttons are blue and it, IMO, clashes with the new grey background. From an artisitc standpoint, maybe silver or grey buttons with a blue trim might look nicer.

    PS. I love the new ebay link function. GO BUY MY STUFF!

    came in this morning and thought we were on back up power or something. My thoughts:

    - I guess i just i'm a dark kinda guy because i don't care much for the grey. But I'll live

    - New features are awesome. Doubt I'll blog or anything and I don't sell on E-bay, but i think they are great ideas for those who do.

    Overall it is a good change/update.

    While I'm glad that the new design didn't burn out my retina, I'm left wondering, why fix what isn't broken? I thought the old format was great, easy on the eyes, great color scheme. This ain't bad, but the old one? I love

    I like all the new features and stuff, but I miss the dark blue. Any chance of an alternate blue skin?

    This is always hard to explain. I look at it like a car company.

    Sometimes they make an AWESOME car. Literally perfect, doesn't need to be fixed, etc. etc. But they release the thing 4 years in a row with changes, sometimes drastic. The reason is two fold:

    1) Bring new customers
    2) Appeal to a larger audience

    Just reading the responses so far, I have yet to see a "I don't really like it" response. When we introduced the dark blue, we got a lot of "It's not great, but I guess it'll do" type of responses, with a few "I don't like it" mixed in. This, also, in a way goes back to TFW2005 roots, which was a silver-gray. In my eyes, the lighter colors makes this place feel more professional and, like Tony said, isn't so depressing.

    It's not really fixing something that's not broken -- it's like re-creating something to be even better than before. And with the blogs, come on, that's just awesome.

    from the thread i started before noticing this one:
    Looks very nice, just two comments on it.

    - When posting a new topic/normal reply, the area to the right is chopped up (with the smilies, etc) i'm running 1024x768 btw.
    - The links being red is kind of iffy when mouse over. I would think a dark blue would be nicer.
