Thanks again for your comments everyone.
Btw - I've split the last 20 posts away from the previous thread and created this new one.

I noticed now, that I can change to bright theme, its way better

I don't like it personally. I think there's too much blue, think it could use another main colour to compliment it. Also it seems the adverts are more noticeable and distracting then they used to be. Just my opinion though.

There is - white.
Ok, now the thread makes sense lol. It seems you've also changed the banner animation of the forum as well. It's much better now, so serene and "spacey" .

The old design with the picture of the earth and the dark blue theme looked great.
The font was dull as ditchwater. Pages were inconsistent and lacked CSS.
Wow, you really outdid yourself redesigning the timeline; it looks a lot more organized and professional. Wonderful job!
To the haters - I genuinely can't understand how you prefer the old design!
P.S. I spent weeks and weeks, sometimes working 18+ hours per day, to create this new version. It was back-breaking work.
The main logo is better, layout and navigation is better, fonts are clearly better and more professional looking (rather than plain standard ones), pages are more consistent and load quicker. White background is cleaner, fresher looking, and more in keeping with modern design styles. Homepage in particular looks awesome with its new slideshow, accompanying Twitter feed and other things.
Seriously WTF ?? ... ...
*shakes head in exasperation*
In any case, I'm a writer - not a designer. I know a professional designer could do a better job, but personally I'm quite proud of what I've achieved here. It isn't perfect but it's a substantial improvement over the previous version IMO.
I like it, it's a lot more organized, but I don't think anyone is "hating". Just because they prefer something else doesn't mean they hate the design. The way everyone uses it implies putting down others either due to jealousy or getting some kind of good feeling from doing it. There is nothing that indicates this is the case(though it does seem to be the smaller members making the posts, I'll admit). So what if they don't like it? It's called an opinion. An irrelevant opinion, I might add. Let others have different preferences; most here seem to like it, including me, so that's all that matters, right? Don't feel down or anything, you've done a great job, and I don't think any of us could have done any better even if we tried. Before I start rambling, my point is don't feel down just because a few people don't agree with the design. And just because they don't agree with it doesn't make them "haters" either. We all have different preferences, so let's just leave it at that.
P.S: I do agree with that one guy who brought up the point about the blue on the home page making it look as if someone's highlighted it with a mouse, but other than that, great job.
Any thoughts on when the RSS feed is going to be back up?
BTW, for how I use the site...to get info on the latest advancements and timelines...the new look does the job. I've designed sites in the past and the one thing I learned was that you won't please everyone. Keep up the great job!
I still think that the content of the website needs to be updated. Why does the timeline not have epoch 6 in it?
