    New Forum Style

    I added a new style called "simple" to the site. Its aim is to simplify the interface to address some previous requests. Constructive suggestions for improvement are welcome.

    To load the new style, go to the bottom of any page and in the lower left in the menu bar there is a drop-down list with available styles. Select "simple" and the new style will load automatically. Doing this sets the selected style as your default permanently, so if you want to go back to the Default style, you will need to manually switch back to it.

    Thanks

    I quite like it. It seems a little unfinished, as there are few borders around the elements on each page, but generally I prefer this to the default. *thumbs up*

    Might want to rework Ralph's poor Tachi image, it looks distressed! But it is very nice overall, hopefully you'll please the Luddites.

    How about really contrasty and easier to read black type on white? I mean lowering the contrast makes a prettier page at the expense of ligibility.

    Your customer response / service is the best in the industry. I wish you guys made cars.

    I like it. Maybe make the usernames smaller, but other than that, it's good.

    I tried the "Simple" form and much prefer the Default form. The color is a big help in separating messages, etc.
