    Got bored so im working on a new look for Blackhatworld.

    To load this theme up click the link
    http://www.blackhatworld.com/blackhat-seo/?styleid=7

    You can always move back between templates at the bottom left corner its the theme selector.

    Comments would be nice, working on a nice DHTML smooth menu for the sidebar with great buttons, and a lot more to make it smooth and clean for you all.

    This look i promise will be easier to navigate and eye friendly and quick loading.

    Ofcourse ive only started so its nothing huge yet :)

    Comments appreciated

    I love that spy mod :) I wanted to install it on my forum but it didn't seem worth it since there was only about 5 new posts a week :p

    Looks pretty awesome, but the side menu buttons are fuzzy looking. I know your not done with it yet. can't wait for the new look.

    Great skin. I'm really into the compact fixed skins. The side bar still sucks though. There has to be something that can be done with it that doesn't make it look so out of place on all of the skins.

    After looking at it a little more I think it's just that the side bar is so long and has so many links in it. Maybe just cut it down a bit and throw ads on it. Wow! I can't believe I suggested throwing ads on it. It looks that bad though.

    Can you make it a bit wider? Just seems a little narrow or something...

    Hate to say this but the 'new' look seems awful phpBBish. On the plus side it will look like a vast majority of run of the mill forums. Closed in and less inspiring to creative thought.

    I do prefer this one.

    I really like it as it is now. I have just joined so have not had to look at it as long as others but I do really like it. The new one is not bad either.

    I have changed my mind. I like to old one better. The new one is not doing it for me. I would like it changed back but it will not go. Please help. Also did you just cut and paste the buttons on the left from the other site?

    Yeah I agree with essential_clix, to skinny.

    Another thing and this might not make sense to anyone else but sometimes when I go to new posts, I don't have time to read all of them. When I am on the road I may not be able to check in to bhw for a day or so and when I do I may not have time to read all the posts.

    If I don't read the post right then and there and I come back later they are gone; (Sorry about the novel) any way maybe an option to look at the posts from a day or even 2 days back could be added?

    I wouldn't go that far, I just said I didn't like it as well as the current one.

    vader, he asked for feedback, and, giving it to him isn't complaining. Complaining would be if you didn't offer feedback when asked and cried about the new look later.

    I like the idea of the 'View Posts for previous X weeks', but that's more of a mod than a template.
