Welcome to the New Heaven Forums!
For a lot of our staff and players who have seen the new flat style, they've loved it. Others, not so much. The main reason behind the push for this is so we can have a very easy and simple way to navigate the forums while still maintaining flexibility.
Matt (our web developer) and I have spent a few days tweaking settings and setting up the home page to make it look presentable, so how our website looks right now will not be the final thing. We hope you appreciate our efforts in ensuring everything is working properly.
