First of all, I really like the new board. It was a much needed change. I do have a few thoughts or suggestions.....
I view in the v-Bulletin linear mode.
1) Can you change the number of posts per page? 10 doesn't seem like a lot.
2) I feel as though the look of the boards might be a little cluttered (don't know if cluttered is the right word or not, but keep reading) and could be frustrating some of the posters. For instance, there are a lot of color variations depending on if you've posted or read a thread. I think this might be a keep it simple issue like the old site. One color for read threads and another color of unread threads. Also, not sure if you can (or would even want to do it) but some other boards tend to use a separate column to list whoever started the thread. To me, this would kind of unclutter the topic area.
3) The last thing that i feel would be beneficial would be if you could tweak the quick navigation at the bottom of each thread. For instance, I would find it useful if i could just simply click that and it would take me back to the topics of whatever board i'm currently on. Whereas now you must click the quick navigation and scroll down to get back to the board you're viewing.
Overall, fantastic job by all who were involved in this new site!
