If anything I am not sure about the all the white background for the whole page.
A bit of contrast between the posts might be nice, actually.
I agree with this, both on the main "front" page and on category pages where one post seems to run into the next.

I have also had some difficulty seeing who a post is from, maybe I am just not used to it yet.

Wait maybe the posts made by different level members should be coloured differently eg. orange for Star, green for Painted.
Have a nice day!

Steve do you mean who the originator of the post is? If so this persons moniker appears at the left side, while the most recent poster appears at the right.

Could be a bit difficult to do? Not being too techie I may be wrong. Could also look like a rainbow.

Maybe colour the header under the username of each post with the colour of the member level

Tend to agree about the lack of contrast.
I find the date/time of post particularly difficult to pick out (light grey on white background)

Would be also nice if the date of the original post was visible from the forum screen, then if someone resurrects an old post I can ignore it :P

Cheers
Brett

Some really great suggestions here guys, thanks. I'll do a bunch of the legibility-improvement suggestions in the middle of next week.

Found the first glitch: when I tried to quick reply (no quotes), it sent me to the actual reply page.
Have a nice day!

Oh yeah and maybe delete the board index as it is the same as the home page.
Have a nice day!
