Brilliant - love the picture at the top! It would be nice if we could get the forum section a little wider (although the layout is fine for me). well done all you guys doing the hard work.

That would be me.

I love it!
The banner is immense, it's all terribly full of stuff which is occupying me during my sociology lesson =P

Great job guys!

BTW Stephen thanks for keeping the site as free as possible. I've always appreciated that and I will do so in the future. No matter how many ads

I agree, I can't stand useless commercial banners etc. And I appreciate very much all the work behind the site!

Well, it's true isn't it? Stephen has now had a site for about six or seven years and I can't remember anyone being charged for anything.

It is beautiful! I love the banner, so much going on... just a tad curious about the relevance of each item to Stephen, at least those which are perhaps less obvious.

The layout is clear and the navigation is simple... I really do love StephenFry 2.0.

My only peeve, and this is purely from an aesthetic point of view, from someone who has an aversion to the impersonal. It appears just a tad to businessy and/or stark. Is it the font or the colour of the font? I can't decide.

I understand this is, for all intents and purposes, going to viewed by many, many people and that it is necessary to maintain a businesslike approach, especially when advertising and charges are to become a part of the site. I am infinitely aware of how fussy some businesses are about where they do or do not post their advertising, BUT, perhaps something just slightly more organic in appearance may make it appear warmer or more welcoming? Anyway, it is just a thought.

Aside from that, I wish to say jolly well done to everyone involved!

'Tell them I came, and no one answered,
That I kept my word,' he said.
......
Ay, they heard his foot upon the stirrup,
And the sound of iron on stone,
And how the silence surged softly backward,
When the plunging hoofs were gone.

I really like the new format! Banner is fun and colourful, it's easier to navigate. Chapeau chappies & chapettes!

First of all it's lovely! Second, I was completely beside myself last night with no forum to check. Thank Gods you're back!

NO! Not above or below. Right or left is fine but above or below is really really really annoying. I remember the horrors on a forum i used to frequent where they had a big ass box of something at the top and it was soooooo annoying they had to move it elsehwere after all the complaints.


What about it just disappearing completely then?

The fact that the forum posts are quite small is very annoying. I was going to say wider is better but then my head completely fell in the gutter for some reason...

I want to make sweet, honey-dipped love to the site.

I think of myself as someone who is filled with love, whose only purpose in life was to achieve love. - Stephen Fry

Very nice. I love the new picture at the top. I'm glad the colour scheme is a bit more neutral. The green always seemed a bit in-your-face.

My god it is such a lovely looking place. Hats off to the epic web design team.

Simply gorgeous. And so glad to have access to all the non-twitter forum fans again.

I used to be EternalStudent on these forums until the switch over. So don't get excited..I'm not someone new and exciting. I'm just me :P
