    I am very excited to announce the release of our new site color scheme and logo! We've been working really hard to give Tortoise Forum a unique, updated, hip look and I'm proud of our efforts.
    All page layouts are still the same. The only changes are the colors and the button images. The old theme is still available by clicking on "User CP" above (http://www.tortoiseforum.org/usercp.php), clicking "Edit Options" on the left-hand side and then selecting "Default". Eventually everyone will be merged over to the new theme, but you will have time to adjust if you wish.
    Your feedback, as always, is appreciated!

    Thanks! I'm glad you all like it so far! I just added the t-shirt design to the Zazzle store. It should be purchase-able very soon, just click here or use the TFO Store link above! Purchase proceeds go directly to site costs and it helps A LOT!

    The blue reply buttons were replaced with green ones. If you refresh your browser and clear the cache, it should show everything green.

    Look cool, now just some custom CSS to make the layout a tad better? :p I really like it though! However, text is to small for my liking!

    At first I thought I was at the wrong place, I had to double check the name to be sure. I really love the green! Great Job Josh!!! ;-)

    If you hold down your "control" key and hit the "plus" key a few times you can make it bigger.
