: Read the title: "Nothing works." You'll just have to wait.
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?

Ha, ha, it looks like Tumblr now. It's nice and simplistic.
Check these out please!

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!

Great job, Nate. 8D Everything looks fantastic, and it'll only get better from here!

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!

It looks great. But I'm glad I'm going away, because I feel myself going into denial as I type...
Also, I just realized that my signature is now out of date.

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.
