    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.

    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 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.

    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!

    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

    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.

    Neat. Looks clean enough. Take some getting used to but whatever.

    If I had one piece of constructive criticism - it appears to me that each reply takes up a significant portion of the screen. I'm running 1920 x 1080 resolution and even just SinisterLex's and InspiredHD's single line replies take up just a bit more than the entire screen size for me, even in the mobile setting. Seems like the user sidebar stuff (avatar, etc...) is the main reason for this although it also looks like every blank line is a double space (to me) as well. Personally I think an entire page for 2 one-liners is a little "luxurious" in terms of spacing but maybe that's just me.

    Everything else (color, layout, etc...) looks good at first glance and I'm also excited to preorder your new book when that begins :)

    Why there is no Spanish translation of FLM? 47 millions of native spekers. Fastlane ...

    I was just lurking when I saw this and I can't stop myself from replying...
    There are WAY MORE native speakers of Spanish than 47 million :)

    The combo of you being Spanish and typing in the exact population of your country just made this a hilarious post for me. Especially since I'm not Spanish myself.
