As they're tremendous resources - and as they're easily accessible anyway with a basic search or if you know the link - access to the Golden Gallery and FAQ have been restored to the Guest menu.

The new features? Nice. I appreciate.

However...remember that moment where Phoebe saw Chandler and Monica start to do the nasty on Friends, and she screamed and went "My eyes!"? That's how I feel about this color scheme. I would post the YouTube video but it doesn't want to work.

It's just...so much brightness going on, and things that I feel like don't even go well together. I apologize for my bluntness, but I HATE it.
Yeah...let's make this current shall we?

Blue and green are not a bad combination IMO but I would say the colors could be a little more subtle.

I don't mind the new color scheme. I think we were due for a new one anyway, since we had the green background for quite a while, so I like this update. I agree with Unique on the brightness, though. Perhaps the white overlay on top of the blue background could be toned down a little.

I like the new Facebook and Instagram embed features, but I will third what UniquePerspective said, maybe one color should be toned down so that it doesn't stand out from the others.

I'm actually OK with the new Facebook and Instagram features. The color scheme doesn't matter too much with me...I can take it or leave it. Although, one was needed.

I've adjusted the theme changes into a much more conservative set of modifications from the original (blue background, but darker, minor font changes).

I actually didn't mind the color scheme before. Looked really nice. Don't care for the fonts now, though...the kerning is wonky causing them to be really hard to read.

As for the plugins...I'm in the middle. Yes, they're cool, but they seem to take up an incredible amount of valuable real estate on my screen, and it seems that there's a lot of room for potential abuse with them. Maybe that's just the moderator in me talking, though. :)

People are tired of the f**kery and drama, but if we'd actually talk to each other sometimes instead of a whole bunch of private conversations with other people, it'd go a long way to perhaps fixing the problems most seem to see in the site.

I like the revisions, but please revert back to the old font. Do that, and I think we will have achieved perfection. :)

It's not just you. The plugins are indeed a bit large, and I'm viewing on a 1920x1080 display.
Pardon my language, but I do believe we all need to calm the f*** down.

I too like the new colors, but not the new font. If the old font could come back, that would be perfect.

The new colors do look great. I've loved the look of the site for the past three years, but this gives it a nice modern touch.

The new font...is what it is. I don't hate it, but when compared to what it was, the old was better. Just like Clock Game's redesign, it'll take some adjusting.

The colours though are great. I'm kind of surprised they weren't changed sooner than now.
