I don't find new theme that interesting the reason is Home section in old theme is much better than what it is in new theme. I observed a couple of things being an advertiser or being a user of new version. Pros - 1) The new version is really good and is fast. Specially, in case of sales thread, in current version I keep on waiting for a couple of minutes to get a proper glimpse of images. Cons- Seriously , I felt that signature with text looks really dull, with current forum rules, we can't also go with large texts (I guess). I personally felt that banner ads also looks so dull may be they need new design according to the theme. A personal question, how you will be going to calculate the amount of likes. I mean, if I have got 100 thanks in current version then how many likes I will get in new version. What will be the rules for signature in new version?
