Looks very clean to me. Lovely choice.

It does look nice, although quotes with links could do with a bit of work.

Yeah. I was slightly shocked when I refreshed and the fonts changed. Only slightly, mind. No 'ZOMG, it's the end of the world!'.

Anyway, I think I prefer it.

One small question - why is the 'n days ago' text in blue when it's not a link?

Actually, now I look at it, maybe consistency isn't all that. The titles are black, but go blue when you mouseover, while the authors and categories are blue and go black.

It's deliberately inconsisten. The emphasis on the front page should be placed on the thread titles - hence the larger sized font and the difference in colour to the rest of the page.

Still undecided about what colour to make the last reply on field - was actually working on all this stuff before half my family turned up and interrupted.

Actually scrap the above, I've gone for consistency but kept the slightly larger font for thread titles.

You'll need to sort out the link's colouring though.

Cool, looks good to me. The larger font for the titles still makes them stand out.

It's nice, I've increased the font size in FF as the text was a bit small for my liking but then i do that on most sites.
Is there a way to make links in posts underlined or a different colour?

Looks very good. Though I think the thread titles in the thread list could do with a slight amount of cell padding, as they start very close to the box edge.

The forum looks weird in Firefox, in fact I can't even login because the box to enter my user name won't get a cursor in it. So I'm using Explorer right now.

Not had that problem myself, couldn't you just tab down to it?

Thanks, that worked, although I had to press it 20+ times.
