    I like it.

    Except the yellow. It's a terrible color.

    And maybe make the "new posts" icon the same color as the yellow or whatever color the scheme is, and the "no new posts" stays the greyish. Makes it easier on the eyes to see which is new and which isn't.

    Honestly, the yellow isn't bad but it's a little harsh. I always liked the idea of a navy blue or some derivative...it always seemed so cool and solid.

    Something like this that I just whipped up:

    Possibly darker even...but blue has always been such a rockin' BF color...I hate to stray so far from our roots, even if we are trying to do a total overhaul. Blue just always fit.

    Whatever color the trim is done in, I think the New Posts icon should be quite similar. Mike is right, it's just too vague to me. It's readable, but at a glance all the buttons look alike.

    Edit: After seeing the new icons, I suggest changing the yellow to a color much more similar to the new icons. The button graphic I mashed together for this post is far too electric-blue for the new icons, but a color that's cool like they are would be great.

    The banner's ugly! Also, I'd like a color scheme to match up with the original BF, if possible. But other than that, it looks pretty cool.
