Yes that is improved, my eyes are not straining as much now.

I really like the top bar for accessing the forums, much more user friendly.

What a difference! I thought I was in the wrong place. I don't know yet if I like it or not. I have a bit of a problem with contrast.

I agree with the brightness and the pastels. I ended up going into my control panel and choosing the DC 1.0 skin. I'll check back occasionally but I prefer the old look. I just thought it was me. I'm not a "bright" person when it comes to websites.

I did laugh at Betty Crockerish comment. That's kind of how it did feel.

Thanks, we got lots of great feedback that was incorporated into the changes. I feel like there is still a lot of refinement that needs to take place but at least we are headed in the right direction.

I find it quite interesting at all the varied feedback. Some love it, some hate it and some are not quite sure yet. I think we all get used to things and changes are hard. I know I complain when sites I use frequently get a major makeover. Often I boycott for while but ultimately I end up going back and getting settled in.

It is looking better all the time!

I did notice one glitch - On the Home page, where you view recently updated threads, the page does not remember if you have viewed that thread since someone last posted on it. On version 1 of the site, it kept the ones you had not visited since an update in bold. It then kept the ones you had visited and had not been updated with another post, not in bold.

I am having trouble getting the pages to load now. I never had this problem before. Is anyone else having trouble getting from the hyperlink into the desired forum?

Happy cooking, Marty.
