At first it felt so unfamiliar that I didn't care for it.
I was very glad you were able to move the user info back to the left. Like others said, I like to see who said it before I read it. Just reality. If I know you stink, I'll pass.
Besides that, takes some getting used to, but I understand that in order to have some of the new feature set, things needed to move to the newer version. I've been checking out the same version with something I am working on, and I am darn impressed with how much you guys are able to customize stuff.
Seriously, most people have NO idea how much work goes into this stuff.
It's growing on me. The people make the site, and I'm finding it easier to find the people after a few days, so it's all good. I do like lighter colors ala the parquet floor we had awhile back, but do understand that it may have taken a TON of extra work on graphics. Lots of consideration goes into all of these changes,
and if there is anything I have seen in the past,
CL staff is very responsive and carefully thinks out changes they make. I give it a B+.
Thanks for keeping the site enjoyable to visit. No one likes change, but everyone adjusts.
