I have added the new theme called "Tepid" to the forum. It is warm and more inviting than the original theme, imo.    It is currently listed as an option you can choose via your profile>look and layout BUT next week, barring any problems, it goes live as the default theme for the forum.   You will still have the choice to revert back to the original cold, sterile, blue (can you tell I don't like it?) theme via your profile. 

So, tell me how the top banner area looks.   Is the ad banner being squished or cut off?  Or is the entire header looking funky?

The top banner is fine, the ad banner is squished to the right hand side, but I can't read either version of Tepid at all due to my colour blindness, so I will not be able to use it.
Maybe he's caught in the legend
maybe he's caught in the mood
Maybe these maps and legends
Have been misunderstood

The map that you painted didn't seem real
He just sings whatever he's seen
Point to the legend, point to the east
Point to the yellow, red, and green

I really like it.

What are you defining as "The Banner"?   The Ehell Forum logo with fall leaves should be on the top left of the header.  Within a tan rectangle on the right side is the "welcome, you have unread posts, replies, etc" and beneath that, still within the tan rectangle, is an advertisement.

That's what it looks like.  : )

Is it possible to move the "unread posts" back to under the Logo with the leaves? I know I'll get used to the move, but it feels weird right now.

I'm not a huge fan of the orange, but that's just me. On the other hand, I'll be able to tell it apart from another forum I'm on now.

Sorry, I cannot change that.  It's part of the theme design.

There are two color variations of the theme, bright and grey.  I disabled the choice to choose "bright" so you should see a grey background with shades of light tan, a caramel color, an antique white, a dijon mustard yellow...no orange that I can see.

I really like the colors! The positioning of everything is a little weird, but I'll get used to it in time.  :)

That explains it!  ;D I'd been testing them both and was trying out the Bright, and wondered why it suddenly turned grey when I went to a new thread!

I like it.  It's less bright than the blue one (default theme) and feels warmer.  :)

Thanks Dame!

It will take some getting used to, but it seems to work all right. Just a different format; took me a few to find the "Unread posts" option :) It does look nice though.

Everything is working correctly for me. I'm one of those "This is new. I don't like it." people so I'm going to use it for a few days before I decide to keep it or go back to the blue.  :)

It's working fine for me, but it's really hard on my eyes. I love the colors themselves, I love how "warm" it looks, but it all conspires to give me a headache. :(

Can't read any of the subforum headings due to a lack of contrast between the font color and the background color.
