@ScarlettWinters: Read the title: "Nothing works." You'll just have to wait. :P

I definitely think the new look has potential. Not gonna say I love it, just because it's so empty-like right now, but I'm excited for the final product. Thanks, Nate! =)

It's clean and minimal. I like that.

If you're open to aesthetic alterations (not bug fixes), I would like to recommend changing the "Full Editor" button to read something like "Full Reply", etc.. It's also a bit strange to open a poem/literary work and see "[So and So] says..." up at the top, followed by the piece. I like this effect in the cascading comments, but not so much in the actual body of a literary work.

I know you're busy with more important things, and that this is probably not the place. A neat, throwback look anyway.

That's good to know! I got a little scared there :O

Looks like it will happen pretty quickly too. Nice new look.

Nate. This totally reminds me of the notebook theme. How can I not approve? :P

Haha Am I the only one who had a mini heart attack before checking the forums? Or is everyone just smarter than me and went to the forums first? XD

None the less, I love the new design!

Looks awesome, Nate! I was so excited to see it! Oh, this makes a lovely Christmas present. Thank you, Nate! Can't wait to see it when you're finally done with the revamping. And I'm looking forward to it! *goes to stalk the SB forum*

I love the new website design! I can't wait to see what else you do with it, Nate. It's strange how much I got used to this website in the two months (only two months) I've been here - now I feel new all over again!

Still, I really like it. Modern and nicely laid out and ... blue!

The site looks so bare and clean! I like it, and I can't wait to see what else you've got up your sleeves.

Thanks for all of the hard work you've done, Nate. Now take a break and enjoy Christmas! :D

It looks great. But I'm glad I'm going away, because I feel myself going into denial as I type...

I remember when the site first changed from its original layout and I was all like 8D.

This change, though, is so awesome, it deserves a mustache.
