Like the new site and am sure everyone will come around once they're a bit more familiar with the layout. Overall, the look and feel is much smoother.
One small quip: please somehow demarcate the text in a poster's signature box (ie their quote from Woody or what have you) from the text in their forum post. Although I rarely mistake the quote as a continuation of their thought in the post, it does take a second to register and can make the post look more long-winded.
Overall, I think a separate font, size, style or any combination thereof for the signature box would contribute to a more elegant layout to the comments/forum section.
Thanks for your attention and sorry if this is a repost!
