I had a topic like this that I started at the time of our last major from transition. As I've mentioned, I'm still tidying up and fixing colours around the forum theme. So I will keep a running list here of changes I make (from today). It's mostly for me so I don't loose track of what I'm working on.
Also look out for another topic that I will be posting soon to highlight some of the cool new features we have on this version of IPS. There is all sorts of quirky little things that you may not have discovered yet
Fixed many of the blue link styles, removed underline formatting. Changed the emoticon icon in the chatbox, it's no longer the big ugly yellow icon. Unread content should now display as bold text. Made the small pagination in forum view (1 2 3 4 5 etc....) easier to read. They will highlight when you hover over the row. Fixed reputation point counter box. You should see a bit more separation in forum and topic view. Basically darkened the line the provides the separation. Fixed the C&C Profile Icons. You will have edit your profile and reselect your favorite game though. Added dark border to quoted text boxes. Change the tag colours to a lighter grey. Restored bottom banner ad. Moved "Leaderboard" and "Chatbox" menu links to "Browse" submenu. One small change to the how the Post Editor works when you press the ENTER key. It will now start a new paragraph as the default action. If you want to the cursor to move to the next line (as in not start a new paragraph) simple press SHIFT + ENTER. Fixed the Post Editor colours. Especially for the tag entry field. Text is now readable when you enter the name of a C&C game. All C&C games have been stored in the tag system. So just start typing a name of a C&C game and the correct one will pop up in drop down menu. Fixed colours for the small reputation counters on each post. Removed the white backgrounds from avatar images that have transparency. Fixed a bug that prevent user hovercards from displaying on certain text links. Made some layout changes to the main index. Member Stats, Forum Stats, Who's Online are now on the right sidebar. Added the Popular Contributors section to the right sidebar. New look rank system set up. More details here. Changed the colour of text in some areas from white to a shade of grey. Mostly on the main forum index and the text inside the Post Editor. To Do List
