I just switched back. Much easier on these old eyes.

One difference I've noticed that I like alot is that, when I click on a thread that I have already viewed, it brings me to the next post after the one I have already read. If this is a result of the upgrade, kudos! As for the rest, I'll have to get used to it and see. I don't have the issues others have described with readability, but I do have a pretty high color and resolution capability on my laptop.

@bullseye, I just edited some templates so the links in the right will take you to the first unread post in the thread. This is only done on v2.0 and I will go back and update v1.0 once I have processed many of the issues/feedback that has been reported.

I have made a considerable amount of changes to the contrast of the text. I hope it's starting to look better.

I think you're doing a great job, Andy. Keep up the good work!

Well for now I too have gone back to the v1.0. I find it easier on the eyes. I am all for learning new things and changes as long as it is still easy on the eyes.

I'm having fun watching the changes, it's a fun evolutionary process. I like the darker text in posts and the darker thread titles. The colors are growing on me and the allclad ad at the top is making me positively drool.

I like it, but it is a bit too pastel and white for me. For the amount of time I spend or want to spend on DC, I will probably get a headache :( Sensitive eyes... if the site is like this I will probably end up turning the brightness down on my monitor every time I come.

I do like that its fresh and spring-like. I think it is more the white text on pastels that is killing me.

I agree. Lots of good feedback from the members. I made lots of little changes based on the feedback and it's a LOT easier to read.

You are welcome. I still consider this a work in progress and have a long list. So please be patient as I chip off that list and get everything dialed in.

Your comment "it is a bit too pastel..." seems to be a common response. I will see what I can do to make it less pastel and a bit bolder (more contrast between elements).

It's a refreshing change from the the standard looks of most forums.

This one has it's own unique style.Crisp looking *No pun intended.

Thank you :)

Not sure how far in the evolutionary cycle I have switched on to DC in, but I like what I see and think it a huge improvement in style and personality than the old look. Never really gave the look of the old DC much thought - it just was! But I think you have worked well Andy. My laptop seems to handle the distinction in colours well - and don't ask me about the resolution - it is set at whatever the shop put it at!! LOL

I hope those of you who are experiencing trouble viewing the site comfortably get the opportunity to switch over soon.

Pleasant surprise in a somewhat sucky day.

I`v gone back to the original too (much nicer to look at), also when you get a Notification of a message, the Pop-down menu disappears Under the bar at the top making it impossible to click on so you can read your message :(
I know I`m gong to get told off again for pointing this out but it may affect Others too.

You really did make some changes since I last checked in, Andy. DC v2.0 (or should it be v2.1 now?) is much more readable than it was on my last visit. Thanks for that!
