CaptiveReefs

Looking for some feedback on the recent style change I made to CaptiveReefs.com

Here are some of the pages I think are unique:
Homepage
Forum Home
Coral Collector
Tank of the Month Forum
Sponsor Forums
Selling Forum

The header is a very smart idea, I also like the rest of the style. Good job!

The header as Eplexx said, is very sweet. I love the layout. Easy to navigate and find my way. Overall I would give your site a 11 out of 10.

Just switched my style over to "holiday mode". The logo, header, and background are slightly altered from the normal style. Too much?

Just did some minor updating to the showthread templates. In particular I really tried to cleanup the bottom area of showthread. I would love to get some feedback...here are a couple links to threads:

I would recommend using some sort of cookie (jquery cookie) to control the popup for
You are visiting CaptiveReefs as a guest, please register or login to access our member features.
so when the x is clicked, it doesnt show up as long as the cookie is there.

Other than that, looks awesome

Yeah the guest/signup think gets annoying after a few pages.
At any rate, I really like the appearance and feel of your forum, and I don't even have an interest in fish tanks. Great color and graphics usage. I found it easy to navigate although I couldn't find where in the world you're located.
The DIY projects caught my attention. Some interesting stuff. Electronic projects always have been an interest of mine.

Thanks! I just changed its behavior so it will stay closed. I think I am going to attempt another solution rather than have the pop up.

I also made some other tweeks to the site in the past couple days including

An animated background.

I also tweeked some other forum display pages:

http://www.captivereefs.com/forum/tank-month/

http://www.captivereefs.com/forum/coral-collector/

this one is the most "stock looking" http://www.captivereefs.com/forum/basics/


Also made it so the forum icons show on the search page: http://www.captivereefs.com/forum/se...daily&days=100


Curious to get more feedback on the site.

I just added a custom welcome banner and removed the annoying guest/signup thing.

Any review would be appreciated.
