Well, finally new style is up. I'm sorry I kept you waiting so long.
Thanks to all those who contributed with insightful suggestions (you know who you are ;)). And thanks to Tequila for trusting me.

There are still some minor works to be done, some elements to be styled ... some optimizations ... but I hope you like it.

Should you notice anything broken, please send me a PM with a screenshot of the problem.

Biondo that's a really great work! That's what Smokin' Guns should be! Now I can't see any problems to bring 1.1 out! :evil:

Looking good so far!

The only complaint I have is about the header size. Currently the "interesting content", i.e. the first sentence of the first post starts at about 50% vertical of my screen. It's even worse in reply mode, where the text box is below the fold.

On a side note; Some of the smilies are still using the old design.

Maybe you could add links to "Map: " (about that map) and "Shot by" (forum profile) in the header?

The "View more smilies" popup is slightly broken in design and size.

Yes, you have to scroll behind the fold, but I wanted to stress the importance to visually present the game in big evidence through a screenshot atop. Anyway, for my experience, modern users usually are not frightened by scrolling. Maybe we could reconsider if keeping a big screenshot in homepage, and a thinner one in other pages. Though that would mean aditional work in text file editing and image editing, it's a viable alternative.

The smilies would need a redesign, animated smiles are fun but need time...

Yes, it's possible to add link to map and shooter. I'll do it.

That would be a good idea, if these thinner backgrounds could be generically derived from the larger ones. I don't think we have time to specifically produce thin screenshots (in terms of choosing a different motive).
