"Suicide by Moderator" Classic.

It just looks yucky compared to the old one, but they say change is good???

Make the "Post Quick Reply" and "Go Advance" buttons all one color.
Don't believe what you hear and only half of what you see!
I'm adapting to it rather easily. Learning my way around. I did like the way it was before better, but I don't have any dislikes for it as of now.
I guess I'm personally partial to forums with dark backgrounds and light text, it's easier on the eyes to me. Overall I think the layout is good and all that, not too many complaints at all from me. I just feel like the theme is a little generic, but I guess that's being worked on.

The font size is so small that my eyes immediately feel strained when viewing the forum. The old size was much easier to see on a 24" widescreen formatted monitor.
"Ctrl +" does not adjust anything in my browser.
Some of the boxes previously mentioned seem to have white text on a light grey background, such as the drop down box showing "Page 2 of 2" near the bottom of the page. It's nearly unreadable.
I have 20/10 vision and I'm pretty sure my eyes are now bloodshot after making this reply.
Also, I had to use "Quick Reply" to respond.
"+ Reply to Thread" didn't work.
Certainly not a big deal but since the question asked for the purpose of constructive criticism...
I am not fond of the color scheme. Not because it is hard to view or any real functional reason. It is just not aesthetically pleasing to me. It's a bit on the pastel side, just not my bent.
Other than that little whine, I can't complain about anything.
I click the "+ Reply to Thread" button and nothing happens? Then I have to Post Quick Reply? I also liked the way when you clicked into the DC Forum previously, all of the posts were there to read, you didn't have to search them out by going to each sub-section of the Forum. I'm one of the 63+ guys and it hurts my eyes. I will still use the DC Forum, but probably not as much as in the past.

Changing the "Text Size" in the "View" menu doesn't have enough of an effect to be useful. For example, it affects the words "Bumper is a forum contributor",
but not the size of the text in a post.
Ah, you have already changed the text in the view menu then which is what I was going to recommend. VB4 is NOT ie6 friendly, it has been discussed a lot in the vbulletin forums and they won't be changing that.
Have you tried firefox? I like it better than any of the internet explorer versions, particularly the new versions. Not what you wanted to hear, I know.
I found the old format friendlier to use. I'll get use to it.
