This might take a while to get used, but I'll survive. I love how you kept the "Automagically log in" at the login screen. :lol:

Is the right sidebar going to be reduced at all? It's so overwhelming and confines the text a little too much.

Oh, it looks so much nicer, whatever you just did to it. :D Much more space on the page for text and what have you. And my sig fits better now, yay!

I can totally get used to the avvies being on the right side, now that the padding isn't so severe and there's much more room for our text. Thank you so very much! :)

I'm excited to run around the place like a little kid at WallMart in the clothing department. This is gonna be SWEET! And this is probably my second posting on Pixar Planet ;D so It's pretty special that it's on the new PP. It's so different, and that's what I like about it :D It's not like all the other sites like facebook ;D Simply unique, and awesome. Awesomely unique! WOOH! :geek:

I'm still not used to it yet, but I'm finding new and exciting things every few minutes.

I already posted my thoughts on the new layout, but I liked the old layout better, I'm not saying I don't like this design (I love it!), but I'm just kinda a little iffy about the avatars and stuff being on the right instead of the left, and other random things. But yeah, this will take some getting used to...

Maybe I'll get used to it, but right now I'm not a fan of this new design. The text is small and cluttered and the old background was easier on the eyes.

Well this is quite different :shock: :lol:

It's going to take me a while to get used to having the user bar(?) on the right, instead of the left. So far though, it seems the new forum software is a tad snappier than the old software. (Old software was phpBB2 wasn't it?)

Edit: It seems that the search is broken.

Nightwheel - Thanks for alerting me about the search! The software is currently indexing all posts and search will be ready to be used in a couple of hours. Thanks for your patience.

An update has been added to the first post of this tread for your information.

EDIT: As for the avatars being on the right-hand side, this is due to the change in the forum software and is not my choice. I am unable to change it to the left. Sorry for any inconvenience.

Gotta say, looks really nice, and... 2011! 8)

The thing that sticks out the most is the menubar directly underneath the main banner (the bar with "Menu" and "Profile" ) looks a little out of place aesthetically, just to be picky. Otherwise, it looks great. Good to see PP is going strong - adapting and flourishing in an everchanging web!

Excellent work!

Phileas, my good man, let me say that you have done a fantastic job updating the website as quickly and efficiently as possible! I'm not really perturbed by the avatar being on the right (it is a pretty unique design choice on the forum software, and I'm sure it'll stand out from other forums). I do agree with the comments that the sidebars are huge (I get the impression I'm in a huge warehouse or chamber or something), but again, it's hardly an issue with me.

The only design flaw I didn't like is that the login field is on separate page to be reloaded instead of on the main site. I preferred the older version where you can just enter your username and password in the fields.

Other than that, it's lookin' great! I love the fact that there's now more room for signatures (something which I enjoyed on Wall-E Forums, in comparison to always being frustrated when this forum here resizes my signatures and I can only write one line of text). And you can save your messages as drafts! Can't wait to see the other themes. :)

Where can we see the hour on the new layout?
