I like it too, but maybe the black background should get a different color.
A color that blend some more into the Sand color thats surrounding?
For the rest, the lay-out looks very professionel. :)

As of the kitten, it doesn't fit in this noble layout and design anymore IMHO ...
Let's just keep it in our hearts ... :P

What about splashing out some well cut out fancy smilies ... :D

Cool, much better than before :) A slightly higher contrast between text and background would increase readability on crappy monitors.

One point: Could the header be made less voluminous? You might all be using 27 inch full HD displays by now, but there are still people using 15 inch laptops, and the header takes up more than half of the screen.
I prefer e-mails to "diafero arcor de" (after adding the at and the dot) over PMs.

That annoys me too, since I have a small screen. But it's Tweek's layout, and it would make the Forum look much less integrated, IMO.

At least know that the spacing of the forums and topics will become smaller soon.

Well, the header could be made smaller on all sites, not just the forums ;-)
It kind of makes sense for the front page, because there's not much more than the header on there. But for pages which are not about "hi, we are the guild", but about some content, especially for the wiki and the board, there's really a lot of spacing - even if one accepts the large picture on each site, there's some 50 to 100 unused pixels around it.

Would it be possible to make the header optional in some way? Like, for example, to only show it when the mouse goes to the top of the window, or to scroll down some 100px initially when loading the page, I dunno.
Or, if that's not possible, maybe merge the two headers we currently have everywhere - below the GoW header, the board has a totally pointless "Forum" caption, and the search bar. That "Forum" can be removed ;-) and if you could put the search bar at the top right or somewhere else, that would save almost 100px. Similar for the wiki.

Hmm... I'll see what I can do. ;)
Oh, by the way everyone, don't forget to complete reload your cache, then look at the smilies...
