    I quite like the new PF skin overall, but there are a couple of things I would like to bring up.

    I seems to me that threads in the subforums are getting less views than they were getting in the old format. This may be because most people are getting used to the new format or because there seems to be a lot less to see per page (i.e more scrolling is needed to see more of the contents of the subforum at least without any configuration). Or perhaps the counter is just on a delay.

    Also, others may disagree, but I think the signature 'Welcome to Physics Forums, you should totally join' is a bit in your face and a bit to chatty and I don't really like how it comes across. I am not really one for coming up with a good signature but something a bit less may be better.

    Just my $0.02.....

    Some of it could be the counter delay but also Google needs to recrawl all the threads.

    I can work on reducing that

    I can come up with something else. Have any suggestions?

    I'll have a think, it is just the word 'totally' that puts me off I guess. I'm not sure what anybody else thinks.

    Not a finalist and could use help - just a seed for thought: "PhysicsForums: Welcoming young minds, of any age - join us today!"

    @Greg Bernhardt : OMG! I just noticed you've updated to that text. I'm tickled beyond words, yet I tossed it in the air hoping to encourage feedback and input from others. Can we give that another go? Here's a tweak for consideration:
    "PhysicsForums: Welcoming young minds of all ages - join us today!"
