I second the header feedback. It feels bulky.

The other thing I noticed is that in a PM, it does not show that person with the green "online" even though I know they are, and it shows them "online" in the main forum.

This sounds like just my kind of opportunity, and I'm always looking for new opportunity #becauseican.

For those disliking the fixed menu, it is about 66% smaller in the other style. (Mobile version, full width)

I prefer that, liked the other version too though.

How about a down arrow to go with the "to top" one?

Also,

Should the logo at the bottom be clickable for knobheads like me who have only just noticed the "to top" arrow?

I switched mine to the one for smaller screens. Looks awesome! Great job! I'm looking forward to the release of the new book.

Congratulations @MJ DeMarco and everybody involved in the update - excellent job!

I really like the new look and feel.

I think we all have been waiting for your new book.

Now that it is about to be published, I wanted to take a moment and just say thank you.

Thank you for not resting.

Thank you for always pushing further.

Thank you for keeping this community alive, more than ever.

Thank you for showing us the way.

May your new book be even more successful than the first.

May 2017 bring success of unknown format.

Let's go!

I just switched mine to the smaller screen, too, and I like that even better! I know it's especially for smaller screens, but I think it's also a nice benefit for those of us with poor eyesight who use larger text sizes on our computers. Either way, the new design is really nice.

Here are my 2cents on the new looks.

I absolutely love the new "theme" of the forum but I am just not feeling the color combo. The header looks too dark and the inverted shadows on the post types look worse than the old ones.

:eight:/:one::zero:
Yea feels like there's a mismatch between the colors of the forum and the favicon

Also agree, the color is fine, IMO just a bit too dark, a slightly lighter blue would make it smoother.

I'd also add border-radius to all rectangles, makes it look smoother and more 2017.

-I would like a 2-row header instead of 3-rows.
this: https://i.gyazo.com/849ab7f46ee76b59ad1affb27222e5c9.png
or this: https://i.gyazo.com/c86f6a53d90409ba26182f27fce86853.png

-And one that hides on scroll down and shows on scroll up - just like this one here: Headroom.js - Give your pages some headroom. Hide your header until you need it.

-Also I don't know if the site-font has changed or I'm not getting used to it, but the font seems unclear or not much readable.

-Having said that, I love the new homepage tabs section, everything in one place and easy quick access.

-The new book title is spot-on!

UPDATE:
I just switched mine to the smaller screen, too, and I like that even better!

I just switched to the smaller screen theme too and my dream came true :p
It has the perfect header.

+1. For me it's ideal on desktop.

Feedback:

1. One thing which disappeared even from the old design, is when you hover a thread title, and a "tooltip" show so you can see who was the first poster and part of the post. Helped me in choosing what to read.

2. Small screen header doesn't contain options like account, inbox, alerts. If these are frequently used maybe they should be there since header is sticky.

The coaching was a joke guys.

I like it actually. Like anything though it takes time to adjust. I'm a prolific time waster at the autosport forum over the years, and when they changed a few years ago, everyone (including myself) was up in arms. Looking back now after getting used to the new forum, the new one is muuuuuch better.

Damn I'm looking forward to the new book. Time to re-read TMF ! Excited AF!

Couldn't agree more! Would love to know who's working the magic for future reference.

Really like the new look. Nice work MJ.
You're right! It looks snazzy!
The forum feels like 'back-to-basics'...a stark change from the 'roar-down-the-Fastlane' yellow...you might be hinting something there psychologically, @MJ DeMarco :smuggy:

I like the new design. I just don't care for the widget on the top right by itself once you start scrolling. Looks out of place. @MJ DeMarco

Ok, I'm old and stupid. How do I switch to the smaller screen?

Scroll all the way down to the bottom.
Above "Join the revolution" it should say "Fastlane (default)" and have a paintbrush symbol, click that.
Select "Fastlane (For Smaller Screens)"

Boom, done.
