    Overall it looks nice, though I really don't like the white text with this blue design. Black just works better (see? ;)). I do like the default font, though, if nothing else because italics works much better than it does with Arial. Other than that, I think things are coming along nicely. Yet another place for me to waste time on the internet. :) :p

    Well I'll chime in with the opposite opinion; I think the white looks good. Us oldtimers appreciate the contrast and the fact that it's still quite legible on a 16x12 laptop LCD.

    It'd be cool if there was a way for a user to set their own preferences for things like that.. like, say, I want black text, so I click a setting and I get black text. You want white text, so you get white text. Something similar to different styles/themes in vBulletin, but more customizable.

    Oh Andrew.. ;)

    On the drawing board, the next version will have not only admin-definable styles like vBulletin has, but users will able to define their own custom colors, fonts, etc. if they so desire. :cool:

    We are going to do white for now though, because that was what *you* (the people of DriverHeaven) decided on in the poll. :)
