What prompted such a drastic change? The new emphasis and red and black is looking very late 90's, I almost expected to hear the voice of Patrick Moore as GamesMaster somewhere off in the distance too. :) Can we have an option to swap out the red, maybe per use colour personalisation?

I usually browse via forum/new/ bookmark and every single post seems to have it's last update status reset to now? I suppose I'll have to forum/markasread and do the manual trawl

Just go through all topics again!

I'm not a fan of this bright red, it's messing up my eyes, maybe that's just because it's so early.

I agree - red has too much contrast with everything else, and the highlighted posts are hard to read.

Because 10 billion years' time is so fragile, so ephemeral...
it arouses such a bittersweet, almost heartbreaking fondness.

Very much like the new look. Much cleaner.

I also like it more, more readable for me at least.
But can we change our avatars now? How?

Avatars are currently broken.

Avatar selection has now been fixed - should now be able to see the Avatar selection when editing your account.

Well, I remember I donated $15 during the KS campaing, yet I have no badge :(
And yes, both my Carmageddon and KS accounts share the same e-mail.

I think at the moment it is for people that donated 25$ or more, ie. the ones that can use the kick me private area. Though I could be wrong.

Time will tell... Sooner or later... Time will tell.

to be honest I think the highlighted dev posts read just fine. Perhaps some of you guys need to calibrate your monitor.
