    Interesting note Alex. I am a bit torn myself between such front-end tools and back-end tools. It is a real hard call to make. On the one side, you definitely want to give quick and easily reached functions to your team (not available to the standard users), but on the other side, looking at it from an extensible system point of view, those functions go beyond the standard user functionality and thus, they are "packed" on top of a standard user view. This makes the general team functions a bit more complicated to extend, as it sets certain predefined UI boundaries, which you could leave quite a bit more open in a back-end environment.

    I think the new style is outstanding and have no issues with it. I'm just wondering how long it will be before we see the Resorce Manager here?

    This is by far the best XF style I've seen in a long time.

    I was a little worried at first that the new style would end up being similar to AdEx's style which to be honest I near on hated.

    Just a suggestion this, and I'm not remotely fussed, but...I think there's too much padding in quotes.
    It looks like someone hasn't quoted properly and left load of white space in.

    Adding a blank line or one small text stat would probably fix this. Or maybe just reducing the proportion of that stat box would help.

    The RSS icons are back to front, they are normally dim, then appear better when hovered, I keep thinking they are dirty marks on my screen

    That's easy to fix, just clean your screen.

    White space also isn't literally white. It just means open space that provides balance to design. This is the first time I've ever seen someone refer it to the color or actual brightness.

    I'd go as far as to say this is the best XenForo style I have seen.

    One of the things I've been doing quite a bit recently, is taking vB5 sites that used to be on vB4, looking at the web archive captures of their former style, and attempting to recreate and improve on that in vB5.

    So I've been watching this with interest as it's a similar concept, implementing the previous look and feel on different software.

    Certainly a lot of the issues I have with standard XF sites are gone here, and I don't get headaches.

    Really nice job! Only one small thing I saw...

    At 480px wide, the Poster information takes up quite a bit of real estate—I'd change the configuration to the one you have for narrower widths sooner.

    To be honest I prefer the theme Admin Talk uses. I wasn't that keen on it first, mainly because of the green colour. But it's grown on me and think the theme itself is very well put together.

    I would respectfully disagree. This knocks spots of that.

    I found the AE theme to bold, lots of bold colours which just looked "off"
    This theme is a lot softer on the eyes, more pleasing and easier to read.

    To be fair, it had been a while since I'd seen Mark make a positive post that I took a second glance to see if it was him or someone with a similar username. No hard feelings. Though I'm glad he likes it. That said, we could tone down the main post area to a softer warm color. The postbit itself us running a lighter variant of our hospital green color. We'll be updating that bit of terminology to seafoam green.

    Yeah, but you can blame Lisa for that, the old owner of AE. She has a thing for dark themes, uses same again on her new admin forum (even darker). Which personally I don't think suits any admin forum at all... more a gaming forum.

    Not enough padding right, too much padding bottom.

    What browser are you using? Padding looks fine and not like that on Firefox.
