I haven't gotten as used to the old webpage as some. [In reply to] Can't Post

However, this may be telling. I am suddenly feeling that TORn has many more features available than it had before which probably really means that the layout is working Cool.

I think the overall look is pretty appealing and has a bookish/scrollish feeling to it. I could imagine a few more artistic touches here and there to bring out more of the book/scroll feeling of things but that may not be necessary. I like the clicky menus between The Hobbit, LOTR, and the Library (and something else).

You made life difficult for yourself by choosing such contrasting colors for the background of text and then committing to a single color scheme for all the text (in my opinion). It may be possible to play with that a little bit more because if you make the green any darker then it will be too dark against the brown but I think it is already kind of light against the white (so is the grey). Is it really necessary for totally uniform colors? I know there should be a common color palette but it seems like the tweets and recent posts on the sides are a different kind of thing and could maybe have a different color than the main news stories so that it is as easy to read as possible.
