Hey Oliver long time no see.


I've been around ever since. But nice to see you back on board ;)

EDIT: And the new notifications window is awesome! Very, very solid design Eugen.

I just reverted it back to the ALB look. Can't seem to find how to do that now, though...

It doesn't seem to be possible. As was the case with the last style change you may need to do some begging in order for them to make it possible. But this is way better anyways in my humble opinion.

The old forum themes actually aren't compatible with the new version of the forum software so it'll be a little hard to make them available.

We are looking into providing alternative looks though.

Metro Dark style +1, I feel like working on VS. :D

EDIT: thought we need new emoticons, those don't fit at all.

The new UI is nice, and the darker tone makes for less ambient light bugging me.

There's issues though. The text is too faded and the emoticons are obviously not built for black BGs. Some of the buttons look badly contrasted on the compose reply page too. Also, what's the point of the quick links tab?
