    I'm sure you folks can't help but notice the new look for DroidForums. We thought the site could use some fancy stucco and a new splash of paint, so we gave it a makeover. We are very proud of the awesome new look, and hope you like it too! Feel free to post your comments about the new graphics in the thread below.

    Of course, during the transition phase of changing over to the new custom template, there might be a few hiccups too, so be sure to sound off if there is something missing or out of place. As always, we want to evolve DroidForums to make sure it stays your favorite internet home for Android related news, discussions and entertainment!

    I fear change. However, I remember the last change, at first I didn't like it (because it was different) and then I loved it. I think this will grow on me too.

    The last update we did (a few years back) was a major Software conversion. This is just a minor update with a new skin on top of it. It should function the same as the old site, however you should notice a few extra features. Just let us know if you have any questions or can't find something the old site had.

    You may want to look at the mobile CSS portion. Your user titles are messed up.

    At first I Was like... am I at the right site? then I noticed the logo...

    I'm not sure how much I like it right now, but I'm sure I'll grow to love it. There's already certain things jumping out at me I like more.

    Great job on the new look guys.

    It definitely grows on you. Once they got close to ready to debut it to the entire forum, they let the mod team get a sneak peek. I used it for a few days before they took it down & made some final tweaks.

    That appears to be fixed. Here are a couple other things.

    Top square - Why the wasted screen space? You can get about 25pixels from top back.

    Progress trophy text is too transparent. Screenshot-2016-06-22-17.13.jpg

    To me the blue is too light. It's hard to differential against the light blue backgrounds. Right column seems to be too big taking away from the main forum section as well.

    I like everything except the fonts used "NEWS" "FORUMS" "ACTIVE TOPICS" "GALLERY". The rest however I like. A darker theme is welcomed.
