    The top menu is gone for me on the front page. I'm using Firefox.

    We are currently re-painting the frontpage and it is offline for maintenance.

    It is quite frustrating to not have the forum-link on the frontpage...

    anything we can do about the text size of stuff in posts? Seems a bit too large.

    Seems like some text on the forum has gotten smaller while post-text has gotten bigger.
    Messes with the eyes and just annoying to read really. :)
    Just one click lower post-text-size would be less "in your face"

    We are making some changes to match the new FrontPage layout. Please give us some time to finish it first :)

    Thanks Jebus.

    Guys we also have a subnav menu now with the essential features that were hidden in the previous version (drop down was required) so you can easily check for new posts, mark all forums read etc

    I must admit, I'm no expert, but I've had my fair share of webdev. and webdesign on uni so far, and this looks good! :D There are some things I don't quite like yet, but I'll give you guys time to finish it up first! :D

    RawwwrrDepartment next? :p

    apart from the navigationbar is done and the forum now matches the frontpage in design more or less. www.racedepartment.com

    Background image is a placeholder and might be changed.

    Just a bit of feedback, on Chrome, when say you're in a far thread i.e. OWDC Championship Malaysia, which is under racing leagues < f1 2012 < racing games < forums etc. It is too long to display on the Blue Menu Tree at the top of thread and it shits this back to the start on the left and underneath Home > Forums. You can just see the top of the white text. Not sure if it's just because of the browser or the fonts are just too long to fit on the bar.

    Will try getting a screenshot after our race for you to help assist clearer.
