The new look is great, very user friendly, especially the blue forum tabs at the top of the page.

Though I like how everything is scaled larger, I feel that the user information in the left column is a bit pointless. It seems to take up more space than necessary.

I prefer maximizing my page real estate so I wasn't too crazy about the right column, but I appreciate you making it optional.

One thing I've always wanted from this particular forum is larger avatars. I post at a few other forums which allow users to have larger avatars. I understand they take considerable space, but the current size doesn't allow others to see the details of our food images. For example, can you tell what my avatar is? It's a bowl of mussels.

Holy cow! I love it! I love it! I love it! I have been away for a few weeks - been real busy with a homeschool project. At first I thought I was at the wrong place. I love how easy it is to find everything. The colors are very refreshing and makes me feel like I am in the kitchen. You have done a splendid job. Congratulations.

I have to say, I'm still using V1.0 and it is much better. I cannot stand the quotes thing. It looks very childish, as I believe I said before. The original is just much easier on the eyes.

Sure you can. Scroll all the way to the bottom of the page, any page, and there is a drop down menu in the bottom left corner. It should say Discuss Cooking v2.0 if you see the checkers. Click on the down arrow and pick Discuss Cooking v1.0 In version 1.0 you'll see the board you are used to.

Thanks for the advice Callisto. I like the look of version 2 but have gone back to version 1 because I have a data limited connection and I'm guessing that version 1 will use less of my allowance than version 2.
