update on the changes  
I'm sitting around at home, bound to the couch by a couple of partially torn ligaments in my knee. That is to say, I'm bored out of my mind. Hence I took the liberty of crating a new style for the community:

There's still a What's New sticky (also updated, still editable through the customization wizard), but I got rid of the general introduction one since it offered no more information than the userinfo.
The header navigation is now big and offers the most important links.
Sidebar is now on the left, to make sure it won't get in the way of the code.
Linklist will be turned into a list of "essentials" for posting: tutorials on how to make layers viewable, how to link layers and styles, link to the HTML encoder, etc.
Subjects turn green as soon as the solved tag is added.

All new is a Tutorials sticky, as promised also editable through the customization wizard:

Since the list is already so long, it even needs two textboxes in the wizard. o.O

The layout has been tested in Firefox 3 and IE6. If you find something amiss in those or other browsers, let me know.
ATM all the images are hosted at my photobucket account, but I'll port them over to s2flexisquared's scrapbook if/when it goes live.

I'm still fiddling with parts of the layout so details might change. Any input is much appreciated, though.


re: Tags
I simply added date, subject and entry security icons for the moment, as I believe those are pretty frequently requested lately.

I've got my personal issues with off-whites, so I can't be the judge here. the background is now a little yellow-ish. is this better, or should it be more grey than yellow?

I tried to tone down the green, and opted for only making the borders green and leaving the text red.

you're right, it is a BIG change, but I think there's no need for us to keep the comm to the FS defaults when the one thing I love about FS so much is its versatility.
