I actually prefer this color scheme over the previous one. The orange isn't my favorite color, but it stands out, so that's good enough for me. If I could make a change myself, I would make the white slightly darker (a light gray, so it's not as bright), and make the blues and colors of everything else a touch darker so there's more contrast. I would also make the light/aqua blue of the boards that have unread posts in them more gray; right now, the blue color is brighter than I would like it.
But I really like the colors.
Smileys, not so much. xD But as long as I can choose the minimalist smileys, I'll be happy!

Can we take out who the last post was by? I don't care as much about that as I do what the last topic was. Right now, the larger font size, while more readable, makes my columns a lot longer down the screen than they used to be.
Also, is it possible to make signatures scrollable again? I saw somebody with a signature that was... about 200px tall, I think. ><; It's very annoying when the signature is longer than the post.
I went into my inbox because I needed to take a look at a specific message underneath one of my labels. I have a LOT of labels - over two dozen - and when I checked one of my label groups that didn't have so many messages, I ended up with this huge
amount of white space that stretched down to the bottom of the left sidebar, which holds all the labels:
I also checked this with my main inbox, and there's the same issue - it's just not as noticeable, since I view 25 messages at a time and my window is just small enough width-wise that it makes some of the dates go into two lines, instead of one. Since the inbox and labels didn't used to do this, I thought I'd mention it.
OH! And I love this new button in the post editor:
The toggle view is a quick and easy way to test your post and see how it looks! Way cool. <3
