Looks "cleaner", even though there's more stuff. Good theme choice to do that.

Now all we need is a black one with a glowing tube and orange letters and looking all ... "tubie"

Cheers!

I like it also that diyaudio has got more up to date but I have some doubts concerning the wiki.

The new wiki is very close, there have been some technical "hiccups" and I apologize for the unacceptable lengthy delay.

As for the rest of the site, well, to my mind it's pretty ugly. But that's vBulletin. We fought for the best part of a year trying to turn it into something beautiful and it was just too hard. Next year, and if there is enough of a financial response to the things I'm working on at the moment, my dream is to make this website look really really nice. Out with the murky blue grey mess and in with fresh, balanced, modern and artistic design that is as fresh and inspirational as the things being discussed. This is something I feel strongly about and I really hope that I can find a way to spend as much time as I'd like on developing the site.

In case anyone is interested, here's one path we almost completed, only to get stonewalled.

Personally I think vBulletin looks decent and I like an interface with a rather clean look, like it is. You could possibly spice up the color scheme but this is of minor importance. So far there has been a good job in the upgrade.

I don't like the way it is laid out nor the way it has lost some of it's old functions.

I prefer an even cleaner look (than the above, or vb currently), more minimal, less focus on graphics and more on text and visual hierarchy and expanded use of whitespace.

searching for posts to which someone has previously contributed.

Now I have to go through two searches and enter the name twice to get the listing and then when I refresh it does not bring the newest to the top of the list. If a new post is located on second or subsequent page then it is "lost" from the current view.
And because the "advanced" dialogue page has multiple entries I cannot get my browser to auto fill.

It's slow.
searches now seem to take much longer than before the forum started it's upgrade.
