    I know that, but a new time visitor who isn't savy with computers will not and it could lead to them leaving :)

    Why not write a tad JS to have the option of increasing or decreasing the font size? :D Quite easily done.

    Since everyone is wondering, yes I do approve of the new color scheme. You can all relax, and BTW since the new t shirt design is coming out, does that make the old ones collector items now?

    Yay for going green! I refreshed my window from the old blue and saw green and was pleasantly surprised.

    I love it! I especially love the new logo... I have to say I never understood the old one of a horribly pyrmided tortoise. :D

    I love the new logo too. You now have a couple of tortoises inside a conversation bubble and I take it to mean we're talking tortoise!!

    We were all waiting with bated (and in some cases "baited") breath to see how you felt about the new forum. Glad you approve! :p

    I can see everything clearer. I thought Princess Lia had head phones on until now. I don't remember if I was able to read her name before. Now I can read the forum without glasses. Yae!

    it does looks great...
    I think this new logo its so much greater...
    I just think it would look better with just one tortoise icon.... (the first tortoise speech buble icon...), then tortoise forum
    but still, i think it looks great!!!

    dont you think it would look better if you shortcut this:
    Expert Information And Advice On: Tortoise Care, Tortoise Pyramiding, Tortoises as Pets, Tortoise Advice, Breeding Tortoises, Tortoise Habitat

    to something like this:
    Expert Information and advice on: Tortoise care, pyramiding, breeding, habitat and advice.

    Or something like that? .. you know... a little smaller to make it fit all in one paragraph...
    (just a suggestion)...

    I love it, great job, I think it definitely looks more tortie style :p
