Any look I make from that style will only have a limited amount of difference.
I can make other skins not based on the main style but they would not be able to include the custom CBR header and footer which Jonah would want to stay. So for now, normal users are stuck with the one style until Jonah can make another custom style.
I do like that I no longer have to wait till I post another PM

Seriously though, its hard trying to identify the read from the unread threads. Give the black envelope to the read threads and the red one to the unread ones. My eyes hurt from trying to distinguish whether the envelop is open or closed.
Also, make the colours more solid and dark. It would make the forum easier on the eyes.
I think the "quick look" answer to whether a thread has new messages to read is not only the open envelope but the little blue button to the right of the envelope... scanning down the list that should get you to unread threads. And clicking the blue button takes you to the first unread post.
My only real complaint is the reply format. I never was a big fan of quick reply, where you just type your comment in at the bottom of the thread page. I never used this, just because it wasn't my preferred method. I also realize that I can click on "go advanced" at the bottom, but would much rather have that as the default. Is there a way to change this?
I think it would be a mistake to get used to that. It encourages people to provide briefer responses which, essentially, results in less rich conversation. Yeah, you can click to go to the larger screen, but that's an extra step that's tedious if you're someone who likes to make several posts per visit and respond at the speed of thought. I can get used to a lot of things, but not a smaller reply window.
You can resize the response area by dragging the bottom-right corner. The new size seems to be persistent between sessions for me.
It's kind of a pain in the ass posting from my phone now. Takes quite a while for the text to draw in. Not sure why that is.
Eh. No biggie, but kind of annoying.
