    Swim Forums gets a skin refresh! (Review Please)

    I was fairly proud of the Swim Forums theme I made, but the header felt too boring and to me seemed to bring down the entire design. So after a few months, I finally got sick of it.

    I have redesigned the header, and will probably be redesigning the footer and more over time. In case you are interested, here is what the old and new header look like:

    Old Header: http://www.swimforums.net/oldsite.png

    New Header: http://www.swimforums.net/newsite.png

    Feedback, criticism, advice?

    I did, but they are the same thing although the new one has some links ;p the second one looks nicer.

    suggestions:
    try playing with the stick guy colors and drop-shadow

    gradient the font
    ffffff to d3def4 looks very neat

    Looks very nice man! I'm really hoping for you that you can get a lot of more members in the upcoming months The place is good, but I understand that it's probably hard to get members in this niche..

    Thanks Hmm, I have a question about the logo: Do you think it would look better if I stuck the man in between Swim Forums and the user info?
