And I agree with you that it would be a mistake not to add the thread/post numbering system.
The black Video banner at the top doesn't bother me as long as they don't continue using that advertising bar they had been running across the middle of the tree view in some threads.
One thing I hate, is the adverts that creep down from the top as you view a thread. Hopefully the bigger video bar at the top will persuade them to stop using that annoying advert method.
Well, I guess I don't mind the color change except for that HUMONGOUS black area at the top of every page. Very distracting and annoying...I don't like that part.
Also missing the "post 6 out of 20" count in each response. I liked that feature and hope it doesn't disappear.
The buttons are sorta fuzzy and still green, too.
What does everyone else think?
