You are unable to see if you have a new PM, unless you click on some of the elements. And you are unable to see if the new post is in Homebrews, CFW or Plugins, it just highlights Homebrew.

An option to switch back to the old theme would be more than welcome.
Yup, took me four hours to realize I had a new PM, now I'm still waiting on the response, probably doesn't know he has a PM. D:

Can you make icons of topics with new posts more different in colors? Or even different icon. Currently it's barely noticeable.

Honestly I don't mind the new theme as much except for the fact that it's too white/bright and it would be nice if it would be modified to be more grey or darker as well as being able to see less information at a first glance.

Just hover over the word bubble next to the word "FORUM" at the top of the page for a dropdown menu with several options including that. ;)

I've done a few changes, keep in mind that my css skills are limited.

- The font color of posts has been turned to full black. It was a dark grey and that made it difficult to read. I hope this will address some complaints that the theme is too "white"
- Smaller amount of space between posts. Most people shouldn't even notice that
- Subforums with unread content are now highlighted in blue (ones where you have read everything are in grey). I would have made it red but then it became way too visible compared to "regular" forums
- Private messages indicator is now visible without having to click
- "view your posts" is now available in the user menu

Last but not least, due to popular demand, the old theme is back as an option in your user preferences. I cannot stress enough that keeping the old theme is not a right, I might decide to remove it one day if it becomes a maintenance problem. I do not plan to fix any issue with the old theme.
If you need US PSN Codes, this technique is what I recommend.

Is this option still not in effect? I can't find it anywhere in the preferences.

There was a bug it seems. Can you check again?
It should be in "account settings > board preferences"

Alright, thanks, it's showing now, good to have the good old theme back (breath of fresh air on my eyes).

What are your problems with the new theme? I have addressed most of the issues mentioned in this thread, so I need details on why people still want to switch.
