I don't like how the stats isn't it's own block, even if you made it look nice. It's alos hard to see how forums will look with only one forum added. More complete forumview(42)
The user menu and pms being on their own block is nice. Maybe you should have a bit more space between threads, posts, and last post on the forumview, if we get to the point where we have hundreds of thousands of posts it may stretch the theme to have that many numbers in there.
Perhaps you could feature more than a single top poster, maybe a top 3? Otherwise it's just going to be @Senpai
all day every day.
I think you should sort Recent Posts above Who's Online, as the Who's Online block will dynamically resize based on the number of users online, whereas Recent Posts block size is less flexible. Our Stats / Top Poster / Recent Posts / Who's Online would only need minimal change, whereas I think Recent Posts / Top Poster / Who's Online / Our Stats makes more sense and presents the data our users want most at the top and data with less interest at the bottom.
I personally prefer the darker red on the 'newfag' version to the brighter red found on the 'newfriend' version of the same screenshot (newfriend being posted in 48). topicview (51 & 52)
I really like how the current theme fits so much information into the relatively small space that it has.
I think you should switch around the Search and User/Mail portions on the very top, as most people expect the search to be on the right of the screen.
I'm also not sure if I like 'Unread Posts' going missing either.
On the other hand, your postbit and actual post fields look absolutely amazing so far despite the removal of the level field (which will presumably be added in later on) My only concern is that I don't see a clear distinction for where a signature field would be located. Would you mind giving yourself a signature on this theme and taking another screenshot?
