I like the latest round of changes, for readability. One request, though. Please make the red "new posts" box bigger. Thanks.

I'm in Today's Posts.




If you could have better division between threads.......bolder, thicker line.


Maybe rotating lighter & darker backgrounds for each thread.

I still like the old version MUCH better.. and I agree with dewilson about making the lines dividing each post much darker and thicker... now the posts just seem to run into one another
