I like the new quote boxes. They make the quotes really stand apart from the fresh text.
However, I have trouble seeing the light green used to ID a "Senior Member." Maybe it's just my eyes; I don't know, but it's hard to read.
I also liked the Russian crosses better than the new stars.
I don't want to sound negative, but I really don't like the grace/karma points: too much like a popularity contest, and too reminiscent of the the Fundies "amening" each other on other boards. Such a system could have a chilling effect on what members are willing to post.
Guys like Keble, who are not Orthodox yet have something very valuable to contribute, could pick up a lot of negative points and, as a result, chuck the idea of visiting this web site.
Maybe I'll go give him some brownie points right now myself!
