I like the old look for JavaRanch. Its classy.
May be I am one of those who reacts to a change or just old school.

How do others feel about it ?

You can suggest to switch back to the old look.

Note that the "old" look is still the main look. The new look is a beta. Sharing what you like better about the old look may influence things.

this is just my opinion ...
like i said before, the old one is classy ..
I know its from jforum with minor changes in colors.. and i have seen people / forums that modified jforum drastically and made it look awful ..

on the old one .. the colors are very pleasant and every thing is clean looking ..
and also the wide page look is more appealing..

on the new one .. the dark brown is too dark ... especially : the "wooden" look and the buttons and the lettering on the buttons with "yellow" is a bit gaudy .. sorry ..
the font on the buttons too small .. am not blind .. but bigger font will make it more 'easier' to find things..
not using the whole screen is a minus.. why waste the available real estate..
on larger discussions and lengthy conversations its nice to use the entire space ..

above all javaranch is a 'technology' forum .. no one here is coming for a 'fancier' website / buttons .. you know what i mean ..

again ..sorry if i offended, but that's just my 2 cents.. people can agree or disagree or agree to disagree...

thanks for listening ..

Most these concerns have already been raised and we have taken a note of them. We do plan to incorporate most of these changes in our future updates to the beta look.
