Right at the bottom. Under the 'The Ark' table, but above the box with the note about times being UTC +12 hours.

Just an observation, the new Autobot icons that indicate the new posts are a but hard to distinguish. Perhaps increasing the gamma levels on the active icon to brighten it would help?

They do seem a bit too detailed for their size. Would, perhaps, simplified solid colour icons look sleeker?

You guys are more than welcome to tweak them yourselves, if you want I can make the icons available and re-upload the fixed versions. I put the new layout together in a couple of hours on my laptop using the touchpad, so don't expect miracles :P

Oh yeah. Thanks are definitely deserved. I've noticed the layout changing recently.

I'd be keen to try tweak them.

It's been a long time coming and I've been putting it off for ages. Last night I finally stopped being so lazy and put a few things together.

Just a list of changes:
  • Changed header layout to include Optimus Prime figure
  • Changed images on right of header from random squiggly lines to a grid to match Alternator box design etc
  • Changed icons for Linked Forums, locked forums read/unread, subforums read/unread, and read and unread forums.

I was considering changing the colour scheme to red, then making one in purple and changing optimus to megatron and the autobot icons to decepticons, but I do quite like the shade of blue and red isn't the friendliest of colour schemes.
