As you can see the navigation buttons have been updated. I plan on other changes as well. Let me know what you think.

I've darkened some borders and added a floral pattern. Tomorrow I will darken the banner on top, too, to make it more compatible.

I centred the avatar, username and the other information in the profile box that is shown with all posts.

I think I prefer it this way.

I just put all three drop-down menus (GN'R members, shows and songs) closer together and added a background colour to then. I plan on adding subtle colours here and there to spruce things up a bit. Nothing gnarly, though.

I increased the width of the forum from 85 % to 95 %. It is better for longer posts. I might increase the widget width a bit, though, too.

I am currently working on new topic icons. Right now they are all grey and they don't change color when there are new posts, but I will add colors tomorrow to spruce them up a bit and to indicate new posts/thread. I think it will be nice.

They've always been red for me when there is a new reply.

Unless we're talking about different things.

I think we are talking about different things. I added these section icons yesterday:



I am going to add some color to them to spruce up the board a bit, and also make them glow or change color to signify a new post has been made in that section.

I've added some colors to the icons now, in general, yellowish color means new posts:
