    That main page issue is a real troubleshooting nightmare.

    Paddings are a smaller issue and should be easily fixable.

    The "Thanks!" button should be pretty easy to re-add.

    Also...

    Without the sidebar -- there is no login button.

    This template does not properly support categories. If you logout, all categories show before all forums. That defeats the purpose of categories.

    This template is way too buggy; I'm going to have to kill it.

    Also, Color Theory uses the legacy_postbit, making it not play nice with templates that use the newer postbit style.

    I've purchased and installed the Chat Fusion theme. It's available to you, but is not set as the default.

    It's not working quite yet. Specifically, "New Posts" and "Search" do not work.

    I like to look and feel a lot better than I liked Color Theory.

    I don't like the borders around the avatars. If we keep this theme I'll find out how to turn them off.

    Our Unread Posts feature breaks the top right control panel. Our Thanks mod breaks the right post header. And, of course, it needs a Thanks button. But, these are fairly minor issues.

    What do y'all think of the Chat Fusion theme?

    Chat Fusion really does look great but its just that it doesn't work with some pages. I am sure we can get someone to fix that issue. I like better than Color Theory and NB2 and default

    Have you noticed and pages not working, other than Search and New Posts?

    New Posts is really a Search page; they are both symptoms of the same issue.

    I've gone back to the default theme. I don't like either of the ones you added or the new netbuilders honestly. The default is best in my mind so far

    I am fairly fond of the default theme myself, but there seems to be some masochistic drive which is pandemic among forum people which absolutely requires that we must learn a different interface for every web forum we visit.

    I just think we really need to spice up the logo

    ChatFusion is nice
    Maybe get a logo contest for this theme?

    This one is the only one who is better than the default IMHO...
