New Responsive TouchArcade Forum Theme Testing

Hi,

We have a new toucharcade forum theme available for early testing. It will become default, but wanted to get some final bugs/issues dealt with first.

If you are logged in, you can access it here: http://forums.toucharcade.com/?styleid=20

To revert back to the old style: http://forums.toucharcade.com/?styleid=18

Features:

1. Responsive
2. Better integration with Games (icons, etc...)

Known issues:

1. Ads aren't properly working, so are presently off, but will come back.

Arn -

So far, so good. I stretched Chrome out to see all the different responsive layouts and it looks great!

I... Don't like the new version. I prefer the clear segregation of the old style.


Are you looking for bug reports, or just trialing the new version?

I prefer the current/old style as well:
- It is more clear: posts, threads, etc. are better separated, making it easier to read and scan. The "Excel table" style with the separating lines helps readability.
- Takes up a lot less space: the new Theme gets maybe 3 posts on my Air, because there is so much whitespace at the bottom of each post.
- One positive thing about the new one: the fonts are slightly larger.

If you want to make that default, it needs some improvement.
Do you plan to keep the old style as optional (hope so) ?
