The buttons now are easier to read, and larger and easier to click.

The beginning symbol in the edit button looks a bit out of place, I think. Those for the report and quote look fine.

And maybe it's just me, but I feel the new icons' colour looks too "orange-y" and the contrast is a bit different because of that? The one used in the 'highlighted new post' icon on the left of the topics page looked more fitting.

Just some of my opinions. Thanks.

Maybe as a compromise on the reply button, it could be made in the same style as the edit/del/report/warn/info/quote buttons, with an icon on the left and "reply" text on the right?

What would be a good icon? As to what group of buttons it belongs to, it fits in more with the "new" topic button, so should it have an icon, too?

I would suggest a curved or angled arrow, like on an Enter key, as that seems to be a pretty universal idea: http://www.google.com/search?site=&tbm=isch&q … +icon&tbs=isz:i

Bug:
I previewed a private message to be sent with a large code block.

Result:
Upon previewing, my "Save Draft"/"Preview"/"Send" buttons disappeared from the bottom of the Compose window.
Clicking Back brought them back, but then of course my preview went away.

OS: Windows XP SP3
Browser: FireFox 22.0

On the other hand, it's 1:30 AM here, perhaps I am misunderstanding something.

If different themes becomes an option, you could recreate the 2002 theme for shits and giggles:

Yeah, the font in the old buttons and the logo... I finally found it and submitted a few experiments (just in case anyone cares, the elusive bastard is named 'Baubau').

I like how much sharper the text on the new buttons is, compared to that of the old.

@kekko where ?

user nick, on the left of any post. especially under a big avatar, nick font looks tiny ..
also increasing the space between the avatar and the nick might help

The username, rank, postcount, join date, location, etc. text could probably all be bigger and still fit in the currently allotted space.

Cool. I asked around and got suggestions like "homemade based on Blippo", Pump Demi Bold LET, Pico Black.

Ah, sorry.

Until I fixed it just now, this post: Windows Glide Games List
linked to showthread.php?threadid=39 instead of DOS Glide Games List
there's probably others... but lord knows how to identify what they were trying to link to...
