    Todays upgrade is now complete, and as you can hopefully see, we're now running on XenForo.

    WebDesignForums has had a complete redesign, along with a beautiful custom made logo to give the site a professional identity.

    We'll no doubt be working out some teething problems over the next few weeks. As explained in the last announcement, the Site of the Month competition will return in a couple of months, bigger and better. We'll be rolling out premium membership options for those who wish to [S]ditch the adverts[/S] support WDF!

    We hope you'll love the new WDF. Some of the new features include the ability to 'Like' another members post, receive alerts when someone likes your post, or when a thread you've involved in gets a response. You'll also be notified if someone quotes one of your messages - a feature we've long desired to have! There are hundreds of great small features in the new software, which you'll probably spot along the way.

    If you find any problems, would like to shout at us for changing the design, or just wanna say something cool - reply here!

    All thats left I guess is for me to welcome you to what will hopefully be your favourite web developer and designer community!

    Same here. It's something to the effect of dev2.webdesignforums.net at No Access.

    I think the bright blue is a bit harsh and I'm not really feeling the Trebuchet. Other than that, looks pretty cool.

    Also, if you could move the post timestamp to the top, that would make things easier to read.

    By the way, how did I get so many trophy points? What did I do? That way I can do it again!

    The blue looks fine to me :S

    And the new Alerts panel is a great feature too.

    Ok the dev authentication message *should* be sorted now...it was a stray CSS reference!

    The only problem with moving the timestamp is that it would cause it to look part of the message. I'll have a play around though and see what I can come up with!

    As for the awards, they were given out based on your past posts and experience Take a look at the link below to see what trophy rewards you can get.

    Wow...I apparently shut up even less than the mods. Awesome.

    I haven't seen the authentication message in my last couple of posts.

    Just a random thought on the timestamp...what if you put it inside of a box with a slightly pastelish background and a light border? Then it's not part of the post. Like the light bluish color on the left side or something.

    You've just received your first like I was thinking something along the same lines - in fact if you look below your sig above this post where your 'likes' are, I was thinking maybe something like that.
