A few threads starting about the facelift which I will merge and remove and answer here in a hope to avoid too many repeats. I'm quite surprised that it has already taken effect or I would have posted this earlier. Changes are, with reasons: 1) Thinner header with no banner ad in it. Reason: move content up the page. Banner ad had been removed from the header of the old theme as we stepped towards this one. 2) Large square banner gone from the top right and moved down the page. Reason: same more or less - to reduce advertising 'above the fold' and give more priority to content. This had already happened on the old ARRSE_2012 theme as we moved towards this one, but unnoticed. 3) Guests only: large welcome message and encouragement to register to remove two adverts that members don't see near the top of the page. Reason: encourage guests to register, replace some lost income through changes to what members see. 4) Fixed width page. A necessity to make the changes work without a mass of work that we don't have the resources to do. 5) Removal of underlined links replaced with prominent colour. Reason: cleaner, less ugly and easier to read. 6) Removal of Leaderboard banner at footer of thread pages, replaced with square ad in post. Reason: more effective advertising (note the only change in advertising that is not a reduction (for members)) 7) Addition of some MTP, MH shrunk, addition of site name and B/W Mr MH. Reason: a change is as good as a rest and after looking at much older ARRSE, it had more character than just a MH with nothing else. This is a step back to that. 8. Removal of lumpy VBulletin standard borders on blocks, shadows on blocks and gradients (also made to ARRSE 2012 theme although unnoticed). Reason: improvements in speed of page rendering and cleaner more modern look. 9) Right column moved up: less wasted space and more prominence to right column content 10) Removal of right column when looking at gallery images. Reason: messy and pointless There are probably more. This was an unusually slow and considered process with both BCO and I using this theme for weeks. We both prefer it although of course expect a bit of drama as always. Bug reports appreciated. It takes ages to iron out all the little glitches and I'm still working on IE6 (DII) but decided to go live before that nightmare was finished.
