I have 7 styles installed which you can choose from (at the drop down at the very bottom left of most forum pages). Which is your favorite (so far). More will be added later.

Tis now. I just learned that I can modify (add options) to a poll (couldn't do that on the old system)

I really like the carbon fluid , it stands out and it seems easier to read, my 2cents worth.:cool:

I guess I'm a "basic" kind of guy.

Medium blue - it's restful and easy on the eyes.

Default is easier on my eyes. I liked the burl wood trim design on the old site though. PJ

I've been using the "Default" style, and while it is reasonably functional, it's a bit bland. I like some of the elements of the "Carbon-Fluid" style, but the reds were a bit too much.

A middle ground with the good visual contrast of the "Default" style with some of the more interesting visual elements of "Carbon" would be the ideal for me -- would provide some brand identity for the site, while still being very usable.

I may try to build a style similar to that "Old English" style when I have some " free" time.

AegeanEcru seems to be the easiest on the eyes! the others styles have some rather "bright" colors.
I like the picture on the top of Take five with the bolts.

I added the bolts because I thought the background in the header reminded me of a greasy garage floor - fitting for a site about British cars.

I prefer any that take advantage of the full width of my laptop screen, i.e. Carbon Fluid as opposed to Carbon which leaves wasted space on the sides.

I am just waiting for the BCF classic design.

bitten fruit fluid suits me most i think. it uses the full width of my screen, and isn't hard on the eyes. Though, the width of my screen has the "Britishcarforum" image tile showing up on the top. So, up there I have:

"Britishcarforum ... insert a lot blank space here ... Britis"

I need to work on placement of the header.

I just noticed... the time zone appears to be off. Is that a per user setting?

never mind. I found it. It was my personal time zone setting. It was on GMT; just changed it to Pacific. :)

I prefer the Carbon Fluid. To me it is the best of the full-width formats.

I keep jumping from one to the other but keep coming back to the default style. I agree that it's a little bland, a little more color would perk it up a bit. But that's ok with me, I can read it and move around in it with ease. Old eyes get tired a little faster than the younger folks. PJ

PS, I am amazed that with all the different personalities out there, no one has chosen the carbon style.
