I'm really impatient to read your first impressions about this new forum and the website !
In my point of view, the forum and the website are pleasant to read and look at !
Maybe I'm not totally impartial but :
The design is modern and pleasant to look at
The colors are not aggressive
The background is not black or white, and provide a soft visual effect
The text contrast is quiet good
the forum is fully integrated into the website
the website multilingual support is an amazing new feature
To be honest, this is the design I had in my mind since few years !
And I also know, this is not perfect (some missing functionalities) but many improvements will be done in the future !
Thank you very much for your feedback !
