Btw, a question out of the blue, are forum avatars and profile avatars now unified? They weren't in the last version of GD, and I noticed my forum avatar has now changed into what was previously my profile avatar.
Correct, there is now one image for your profile and avatar. I know, I like it too!
Looks clean and seems to work smoothly. I do have some remarks though: I don't like the black bar on top, it seems out of theme and only a small portion of it is actually used, wasting a lot of space. I think the previous solution looked better.
I not very fond of the vertical space used at the top of the site, this is probably because of the new login bar plus the announcement taking up a lot of vertical space.
Mods and admins get a bit more use out of the black bar area - it's not going anywhere. We'ev also economized the top area of the screen as much as possible. If you have specific points of improvement you'd like to offer we're listening but I can't see it getting any smaller. It's all vital info up there.
[Edit] Seems like this post of mine doesn't show up in 'My Content'.
Might take a good couple of minutes. I'm pretty sure it's not instantaneous.
