    The new style looks very good, distinct and clear, but the old one looked also great. :) Should say that (1) the Reply function is not as comfortable as its previous version. Could be worth adding (2) embedded media support, and also worth making those buttons (Reply, Delete, Cancel, etc. - esp. when editing a post) distinctly (3) visible. :(

    Embedded media plugin was a unique feature in this site, I don't reckon seeing it anywhere else.

    btw,
    @ Reghackr, nice signature.

    @ Mike, thanks for making this site better.

    New style looks great. It is not only elegant but also user-friendly.

    Thanks for your future support. I am aware of the toolbar issue and it will be fixed shortly.

    Much thanks for your kind words Trouble and yes that's the best thing really (to be patient I mean) as the little niggles will be ironed out eventually....

    Not a complaint - just a query. Is it a deliberate function that "new posts" turn blue as you scroll down, or is it my settings?

    Added. By the way, whilst you are working with it, a "Quicklinks" option in the new posts window. Maybe it is there but I could't see it?

    I like the new look. I liked the old look too. I have a couple suggestions. The Address bar should be at the bottom of the page too. That way you wouldn't have to return to the top to get to it. Plus the original poster should be able to mark a thread "Solved". Sorry if I'm being redundant but Mike asked for feedback. I have suggested the Address Bar thing before and Kemical made the suggestion about the "solved" thing after I asked about it.

    What is your Opinion of the site redesign?

    Do you like it or Don't like it and why. I like it we needed a fresh new look it will help keep this site the #1 Windows 7 Community.

    It's quite acctractive really. If you have a full page list of "New Posts" (selected from the top bar). As I said, starts white, and as you scroll down turns slowly blue -cute.

    What is native video support and how does it mess up the water cooler?

    The new look is nice! Good job!

    I will say, that GoogleAds do get in the way of some posts on threads.

    I use Google Chrome with Adthwart so I don't even remember what GoogleAds looks like. :)

    The width of the site has recently been changed to a proportional design. Do you think this is better or should we go back to fixed width? Nevermind the fixed width is better for browser compatibility.
