I'm going to be the only one not complaining at all and say Yay Miskie.

I like it, great to see the old logo back.
I think we need matching avatars once more.


Like so? May have to look very closely, its more than just sepia

will this do?

I don't know if it's just me, but I find the "new posts" and "no new posts" icons confusingly similar. I propose something like this:


They are - I intend to get to the icons and whatnot once I'm done tinkering with the rest of the layout. The wax seal is an interesting idea.

Alright -

I've about finished the layout, colors, etc. - I'll work on icons and such after I get some sleep.

I think thats suitable, everyone should add a sepia tone and moustache to their avatar

Sounds awesome but I haven't seen it yet as currently all my browsing is via Android.

Anyway, thanks Miskie!

Koff : Im not sure where you had gotten the game console/handheld icons,  (  :gc: :xbox: :ps2: :psp: )  but they could use a bit of updating. If you have a source, I can go grab them.

1866 is more or less completed - Barring any major, unforeseen issues. I will still be tweaking a few things here and there but these things shouldn't distract from the usability of the theme.

If you have a suggestion or notice something odd, post it in this thread and I'll address it.

I think I stole them from Gamespot 10 years ago.

Lining a load of new post tabs up by clicking the big finger is so satisfying.

I love how this forum completely goes against modern design phylosophies. Keep it up! ;)
