I found both of these things a while back, so here are the answers (they could be out of date now though):

I found another problem with www2; normally, capn_midnight's avatar is a picture of a dude saying "a dime!", but here it's a picture of a silver car.
It's a shame he won't see this post because of his rating filters... [crying]

www2 and www don't point at the same files. I was told that the avatar issue is due to them simply being out-of-sync, and anyone who's changed their avatar since the copy is going to be wrong.

Yet another problem: BB code emotes don't work!

I told them about that a while ago, and I understand it's in their system to be looked at [smile]

Cheers,

I quite like the new look, it's certainly different [grin]

One thing that's annoying though is I can't middle click on links on the top menu thing in firefox to open them up in a new window, I also can't right click and go open in new window or anything like that, it would be nice if it was possible to do that.

I like some aspects of the new layout, although the special username colors are a touch too light now. Also, the post reply button is too small and in a weird place, IMO. Also, the menu bar should be left-justified, IMO. Especially since if you make the window small, the menu gets lost even though there's space to put it. Instead, have it round off on the right side. And I think the colors for things are a little on the light side; they could be darkened just a bit to stand out more.

Will there be an option to use this layout with the old color scheme, at least for GDNet+ people?

I never even knew it existed!

I like it, it's so much cleaner and tidier, but I think it's too default. It looks just like the default schemes used by other boards. Perhaps, as Promit said (I think), we could darken it a little to add a unique flavour?

I like it though, top notch job.

hmm, I have to admit that I like the current design better. I do most of my gdnet surfing in the evenings (not that it matters in sweden at the moment, the sun sets before 3 in the afteroon) when its dark and a dark background is much nicer on the eyes.

I agree; the first thing I thought when I saw the forums was "Why did they switch to phpBB?"

OK, the wow effect is starting to wear off... it's just to bright! I got a headache from staring at the forums too long... perhaps this could be a skin for GDNet+ members? I have the perfect name: "www2 theme".

Hmm, the cat's (more) out of the bag now.

Personally, I find the old site design considerably more readable. Yes, www2 has the clean, polished design of a professional corporate site, while www has slight overtones of "Billy's Satanic Flaming Skull GIF Temple", so I understand the change. But powder blue on blue, and black on grey, make my eyes say no.
