I like it especially the larger font in the input window. Happy Elf Smilie One question though, I have a 3/4 inch wide lighter green boarder on each side of my screen, is that due to my oversized monitor or to make it easier to read the forum in one window side by side in another for chatting?
I am pretty sure that should be there, but send me a screen shot just incase Grondy.
I really like the new design Taz, it looks great! Big Smile Smilie
Wow Taz. It's great. Gave me quite a surprise when I logged in! I fancy even Mr Tolkien would like it.

About the "edge bits" Grondy was talking about. I have them too. If we got rid of them, the forums could be made "wider" and more spacious. Just a thought.

The new design is wonderful Taz! Once again, your hard work has paid off... Wink Smilie

I like it alot, however I find it very hard to see the subject matter since it's written in black against a red or maroon colored background. It would be alot easier to see if it were all white or maybe just a different color so it could stand out more........just a thought. But overall, it's very nice! Wink Smilie
Most of us have a greyish-green background with black lettering. Our Website menu to the left is walnut with black links and white section headers. Don't know why you are getting the redish color. Elf Confused Smilie
The new design is awesome, Taz...I really like it Big Smile Smilie
Really nice re-design, Taz. The color schemes and textures really appeal to my sensibilities. I really like it all a lot. But my only problem is that it seems to make things run a lot slower on my machine for some reason.

reddish-colour
It could be an optical illusion created by the proximity of the green/beige shades. But it is in fact a walnut colour. I like the wood grain look very much. Very Tolkien-esque. And I just adore the little snowflakes. Very cute. Maybe after christmas you could turn them into little JRRT symbols, Taz. Wink Smilie

Speed: I don't find it noticably slower, and I am using a P3 with dial up (can't get much slower). I like the way the pages reconstruct themselves when you press the page-down button. Very swish.

That is probably the javascript snow flakes. We have had a series of people reporting this... Soon they will be gone Smile Smilie
Taz,the new design is great!Bery cool Cool Smilie . It seems to give PT more depth. The snowflakes are very Christmasy. I love it. I don't notice it making my machine run any slower.
The first thing I noticed after being away for a couple of days was a welcome back Valedhelgwath that I had never noticed before.

It looks good Taz, although I've now got to go and alter a section of the new Guide I was working on because the screen and some of the features are different now. Smile Smilie

You guys don't find it hard to see the black subjects under each section head??
I don't, but then I have an oversized monitor and tri-focals. Elf Winking Smilie

What I really like is the font's larger point type in the input windows; I used to have to strain to read what I was writing.
Ringfacwen, I can understand the problems that you are having seeing the black on the walnut. I didn't have a problem on my desktop, but since I have been on the laptop, I have been experiencing the same thing. Perhaps, if the black was in bold, that would help the situation a bit.
Whoa,great stuff!Though it loads a bit harder than it used to....
Hi Raptor,
I think it may be the snowflakes that are slowing things down for you. But not to worry as this is just until Christmas is over. If you are still finding it too slow then Taz has given another option:

go into "My Account > Select Theme" and either choose from the old one "planettolkien" or our lighter theme for modem users "pt_light".




I like, although I do miss the second to last post that used to appear at the top of the screen!
Yes that has gone, but you will again now find the five latest posts on the main page. Except is shows the thread title of where the latest posts were written instead of the post.
Neah,Rednell-a few seconds more,but it's in the christmas spirit... :wavingsanta; thanks anyway
I like it. Not as much as the old one. But I like it. And that's positive, right? Big Smile Smilie It'll take me a while to get used to, but in the end I will. I'm sure. Cool Smilie
Well if you prefer the old design it's vailable by going into "My Account > Select Theme" and either choose from the old one "planettolkien" or our lighter theme for modem users "pt_light".
Thanks Tazzy! Kiss Smilie You know why...
