Theme is way too busy.
@OP, better pay attention if staff are agreeing with meI have to agree with @Matthew on this. The tiling of the image isn't working and if it was just a banner across the top it would be more pleasing.
The font takes some time to get used to. The latest profile posts takes up a huge amount of space before scrolling all the way down to get to the actual forum.
The variety of areas to post in is nice and pages load very fast for me which is a good thing!
