I've merged the two threads together so that we have a central discussion on this.
Since I got back from work this afternoon, I've resumed work on the CBn skin. You may need to refresh your browser a few times on the same page for the CSS changes to be re-cached to see where I'm currently at.
It's not finished yet - so things may still look a little... wrong.
When I think I'm in a good position, I'll ask for people to point out any quirks that they may spot - that'll help me track down and get them fixed up quicker. But note, I'm not ready yet.
Thanks for all your great work. I love the new look, even if it's not the definitive one. I find it much more readable and actually much more user-friendly.
Since you're obviously working hard to deliver a great new Forum, may I ask just one question: would it be possible to add an avatar picture without having to wait the 1000th post?
Other than that, you've done one hell of a good job.
