    They're the company that acquired ABW back in October. iNET owns many of the top forums for online professionals, software developers and hardware enthusiasts, including Web Hosting Talk, Hot Scripts, OC Forums and Mac Forums. Awesome group of people!

    Nice job, Guys!

    The softer colours are more appealing and look more professional, and the homepage is more "ordered" and easier to find stuff. I didn't realize I was logged out and was worried that the quick reply box was gone, but--it's still there

    It will take a bit of getting used to the new setup, but all in all it's looking and feeling good.

    I think that's probably a caching issue. I'm seeing the new one.

    I like the colors/layouts and everything. One minor complaint - I can't easily find the new posts button on all pages which is what I always use here.

    Took me a while to find it, too. But it's under "Quick links" --> "Today's posts". It's an extra click, but when you are finally in the today's posts sections, you can just press F5 to refresh it.

    It looks nice. Clean, organized, easy to navigate. Nice change. The font size is showing up a bit big for me. Is there a way to set it like I'd like it?

    Ya that was the first thing I saw was the avatar while the page was still loading.

    Then I got wall to wall new swank forum. A change is always good once in a while.

    Looks web 2.0ish. Should be good. Still trying to click the xxx new posts in the middle of the page though.

    green light for online, grey for offline. I like it. And all the info appears in one area. That's great!

    Nice, clean look. I like the new layout and navigation and I appreciate that there are fewer visual distractions now.

    Me too. I need a great big "New Posts" button, either on the front page or in the forums area. It was so nice to be able to hit that on the old front page and instantly see all the new stuff.

    Edit to add: Nevermind. There's a "# unread posts" link in the upper right under my name. That works.

    I think the new layout is so much cleaner -- LOVE IT!

    One *minor* criticism though...the only thing I miss is the "Latest Posts" box which was prominently on the home page of the old layout, but other than that, I think it's all a massive improvement!

    The format looks good but will take getting used to.

    The message font takes a lot of effort to read. It's thin and run together. How about making it the same as in the quick reply

    If you'll look at the upper right hand corner of the page by your username where you log in you'll see a link that says - unread post. That's the new post link.
