Thanks to Josh Leuze who tipped me off to this, it looks like bbPress.org is finally going to receive an overhaul with a brand new site design. The new design sticks with the same basic color scheme but the overall site gives a refreshed look and feel. My corny joke regarding the design is that there is a bug on the header.
I’m glad to see bbPress.org finally getting a much needed facelift. The only gripe I have about the design is that the forum gravatars are huge. I think having them a bit smaller would be the way to go. Please take a look at screenshot 1 and screenshot 2 and let me know what you think of the redesign in the comments.
I think that the new design is a good fit with the rest of the WordPress family, while still being original enough to stand on its own.
Seems like having a sharp looking website should help generate more interest in bbPress and give the impression that the project is maturing a bit.
But now that bbpress.org and the dashboard have been freshened up, Kakumei really stands out like a sore thumb ;)
I think the Gravatars, and other poster info looks sharp, but I can see how a series of one line posts with such large Gravatars could take up quite a bit more room than need be.
