    can I suggest changing the top part of the screen a bit? with add looking larger, and then the HOP logo..the threads are so far down the screen you almost don't notice them at first. Other then that looks good, and I even have my old logo back that I can see! ( not sure if this is from change or recent anti virus sweep,,,

    The height of the logo and all above is the same - only currently the header is a bit larger because of the notices ("read the announcement" and so on), but you can dismiss the two announcements: hover over the right end of the announcement box, a small X appears and you can close the announcement box.

    All seems good. I've been on a couple XenForo forums, it's good software. If you want the equivalent to "Today's Posts", first click "What's New" and then near the top right there will be a link "All Recent Messages"--or you can do what I do, save www.houseofpolitics.com/find-new/threads?recent=1 as a bookmark.

    I can't say I'm a fan of the current skin/theme, mainly the white and gray border around everyone's avatars and the gray behind all text in posts... But at least it isn't fixed width (cringe).

    Also, you forgot to put a favicon.

    A favicon is the tiny icon that your browser shows as a tab, it also shows as bookmarks on most browsers. On my website it shows as a purple K. On a lot of vBulletin forums, they leave the standard V icon. When you go to YouTube, it shows as a play button surrounded by red.

    In every forum there is a large button "Post new thread" on the right.

    On the start page click on "Members Online Now" on the right.

    It's a screen cap avatar of my Dynasty Warriors Online character... I saw that our avatars can now be 200x200, and that was the only avatar of that size I had ready to go... I'll make a new one before long.

    P.S. to Walter, I like the larger avatar size!

    Amazing, this place actually looks to have made a positive change in appearance. Now, all you have to do is get a few more members.

    Just observing occasionally from afar, the traffic here looks slower than driving between Tacoma and Seattle during rush hour...
