    Nope. Earlier in this thread, The Sandman pointed out that there is now a new yellow version. That is what he's talking about.

    I just noticed that. So that's what he meant by "Don't count it out just yet. ;)". Thanks.

    I like the new look but the exception is the blue bar above posts.

    Other than that good work. :)

    I like the new look, although it's always hard to adjust when you are used to seeing a site look one way for a long time.

    I've actually recommended the owner of ForumSkin.com to a few people recently. He does some really stunning work. :)

    Excellent. Do you know how much his designs go for? [If this isn't the right place to ask, I'm sorry]

    Since each job is custom it varies based upon what the customer is looking for. The best thing would be to contact Nicholas with a good description of the type of design you're going for so that he can work with you on the project.

    I can say, though, that I've had the pleasure of working with Nicholas in the past as well and he is also my #1 recommendation for when people are seeking custom styles to give their site a signature look.

    EXCLUSIVE is definitely the correct term
    The style is 1 or a kind = sleek and represents TAZ wonderfully.

    absolutely beautiful.
    I didn't actually expect it, lol, so i joined and was shocked.
    But I really like the skin, was it a bitch to carry all your modifications? Oh, and all the buttons and everything look really good.

    Really cool - now all you need is some shiney new, cooler smilies to suit the new look. The old ones are just a bit naff surely? :jiggy::tisk::wave::bs::idea::hopeless::lildevil:

    Meh... Perhaps people need to re-realize their joy of naivete.

    It's a bit astounding to me to read the "negative" commentary about the new TAZ style. Of course we all have our opinions (including me - but mine is 100% correct :p) --- It's not easy for everyone to simply agree with my assessment that the new style has personified awesomeness LOL --- Anyway... The praise far outweighs the negativity so... EXCELLENT JOB TAZ Admins!

    Jacquii.

    There's always an element of resistance to change with something like this, so you can't be surprised at a bit of negative commentary. The response, both here in this thread and behind the scenes, has been overwhelmingly positive. I'm sure that over time, as everyone gets accustomed to the new style, everyone will be happy. :)

    In the meantime, I've been working with Nicholas and Glenda from ForumSkin.com as well as Logician (TAZ's Technical Admin) to further tweak our new look - for example:
    • The postbit has been reworked to relocate the brightly colored band to the top of each post instead of having it in the middle.
    • The Useful Links and General Navigation Links in the footer have undergone a color change.
    • The background gradient behind the Sponsor Banners has been smoothed out.
    • The Home Page, Articles & Resources Page, and Featured Forums Page have all been updated to match the feel of the new style.
    This is just a sampling of the many subtle changes that have been made. :)

    The new tweaks look good. I like the "brightly colored band to the top of each post instead of having it in the middle" most.

    Though the colors seem cold the feel I get is really warm due to the fact that the members here are very helpful and the community itself is unique. Good design and layout, great work!
